‘Transformers: Rise Of The Beast’ Is Gunning For Top Box Office Spot, Hit $8.8M Already

The newest installment of the ‘Tranformers’ franchise has already hit the $8.8 million mark in box office previews already which include fan screenings on Wednesday and regular box office from Thursday. The ‘Transformers: Rise Of The Beast” film stars Dominique Fishback and Anthony Ramos and hopes to revive the dormant toy-to-movie franchise.

What is the plot of ‘Transformers: Rise Of The Beast’ movie?

With new characters and new problems, ‘Rise of the Beasts’ follows Optimus Prime and the Autobots on their biggest challenge yet. A new threat capable of destroying the planet emerges and now together with the Maximals (the titular beasts), they must save the world. This time the human characters in this story are portrayed by Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback. Cristo Fernández voices ‘Wheeljack’ who is the first Latin Autobot in ‘Transformer’ history, Liza Koshy voices the female Autobot ‘Acree’, Pete Davidson voices the new bot ‘Mirage’ and finally once again we have Peter Cullen voicing ‘Optimus Prime’.

The movie as of now, has gotten mixed reviews from fans, and is planning to surpass ‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’ which opened to $120 million. Although, all calculation points to the fact that this installment of ‘Transformers’ is likely to open at around $55-60 million but it could just be a “conservative estimate”.

Where in the franchise’s history does the ‘Transformers: Rise Of The Beast’ movie fit?

‘Rise of the Beasts’ is considered to be a direct sequel to 2018’s ‘Bumblebee’ and a prequel to the first ‘Transformers” live-action film which starred Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox. It has apparently been set in 1994. This movie was directed by Steven Caple Jr and has opened after a five-year hiatus for the franchise in hopes to revive the franchise. Producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Tom DeSanto returned to produce this movie for Paramount and Skydance.
