Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Official Teaser Trailer

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Official Teaser Trailer

A new “transformation” has awakened as Paramount Pictures releases the official teaser trailer for the upcoming action blockbuster sequel Transformers: Rise of the Beast. View trailer below.

Returning to the action and spectacle that have captured moviegoers around the world, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will take audiences on a ‘90s globetrotting adventure and introduce the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons to the existing battle on earth between Autobots and Decepticons.

I was wondering when the first trailer for this movie would appear. The Transformers movie franchise has certainly had its ups and downs. The first one was great, but the second and third installments were definitely “meh” for me, while the fourth entry showed promise in a few areas, the fifth one was forgetful. That being said, Bumblebee was quite a surprise that I actually liked it yet played with the

Fall (2022) Review | Jason’s Movie Blog

DON’T LOOK DOWN!

(AND DON’T WATCH THIS MOVIE)


 

Survival movies have been around for quite some time and have had mixed results with viewers. Tales of death-defying moments of surviving the unbridled wrath of natural elements, surreal circumstances, and unlucky situations have always been fixed point of fascination with storytelling, leading to one suspense after another and finding thrills within those “fight for flight” moments. Yet, sometimes these films struggle to find a proper balance within its own context, with an unbalanced presentation of trying to focus more on the actual survival sequences (scares, suspense, and thrills) and not much on its characters and story progression. Sometimes narrative can be well-founded within true life events (i.e., based on a true story), while other times some survival accounts were created from fiction. Such prime examples of lates includes 2015’s The Martian, 2015’s Everest, 2016’s The Revenant, 2017’s 47

A SEQUEL THAT’S CUTE,

YET NOT MAGICIAL ENOUGH


 

In 2007, Walt Disney Studios released Enchanted, a fantasy musical comedy, that seemed to riff on the fairy tale-esque and signature ideas that Disney had employed in their animated classics. Directed by Kevin Lima, the film, which starred Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, and Susan Sarandon, follows a young girl named Giselle, an animated fairy tale princess from the magical world of Andalasia, who gets exiled into the live-action world of New York City and befriends one Robert Phillip, who shows the new world and falls in love with. Enchanted went on to be critically praised for its overall execution widely and critically, with many giving praises to the film’s direction, parody-esque outlook on fairy tale cliches (most from Disney themselves), the visual presentation, the music / songs, and the cast, especially in Adams’s performance, which established her as leading
