Paramount Pictures has unveiled the Super Bowl trailer for the next movie in the Transformers movie franchise, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. The trailer revealed new footage from the movie, but it specifically puts a focus on the Autobot character Mirage, who changes into a 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera.
“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.”
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts stars Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback, Luna Lauren Valez, Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime, and Ron Perlman as Optimus Primal.
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura said, “We wanted to give the audience a lot of new (elements). We have exhausted I would say the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons. How do we find a new set of villains and priorities, saving the world is left to the Autobots and in this case the Maximals. Part of the new news, if you’ve seen the other movies, you’re going to see villains you’ve never seen before and a lot of elements we’ve never done before.”
The director added, “We wanted to expand the universe, you have the Autobots and the Decepticons, and I would say my new flair to this is the Terracons. The Terracons are a new threat to Optimus Prime, and it’s something I pride myself on when entering the franchise. I’ve done Rocky with Creed, and you bring the nostalgia that fans want, but also bring something they aren’t expecting, and the Terracons are that.”
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts arrives in theaters on June 9, 2023.
