Well, there goes my only reason to care about the bloated, CGI explosion filled, Transformers films!
Apparently we’re not the only one’s who are kind of over the Tranaformers movies. Director Michael Bay is apparently done and so is star Mark Wahlberg. Wahlberg has stared in the last two Transformers movies but that is apparently all for him. While on the Graham Norton Show, Walberg didn’t exactly hold back when he revealed that he’s done with the series.
“I get my life back!”
Wahlberg said as he went on to say that he spent five months getting himself in shape for the fifth movie only to get saddled with a haircut that he absolutely hated.
“The long hair is the worst thing ever,” he joked. “I look like my mum in the ’70s – it’s just really bad!”
While Bay and Wahlberg might be running for the hills but that doesn’t mean we’re done with the Transformers movie. Transformers 6 and the Bumblebee have both already been greelit. The idea of the Transformers has never been the problem with these movies but the execution. While they keep making money it would be nice to see a series come along that actually feels true to the source material.
So by the way Wahlberg sounds, I’ll probably be expecting a more “phoned In” acting performance from him. Oh well, I still love my Marky Mark!
Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight stars Laura Haddock, Mark Wahlberg, Gemma Chan, John Goodman, Isabela Moner, and Anthony Hopkins. Catch it in theaters June 21st.
