Paramount Pictures Declare Transformers: Bumblebee Is Solidly Profitable



Congratulating*Jim Gianopulos for the 2018 turnaround success of the movie studio, Viacom (parent company of Paramount Pictures) CEO*Bob Bakish stated that Transformers: Bumblebee is ‘solidly profitable’. This was most noticeable as Viacom admitted that Transformers: The Last Knight acquired a $100 million loss for the company back in 2017 and created a domino effect which could have sent Paramount to a doomed state had it not been for their new CEO’s timely action. “Bakish congratulated Paramount for a successful turnaround, using the latest in the*Transformersfranchise as an example:*Bumblebee, he said, is “solidly profitable” while its predecessor in the summer » Continue Reading.

God, I fucking loathe how TFW acts as just free publicity for everything TF. Seibertron doesn't shit a tit for every single time Transformers has some "measure of success" and essentially post press releases, FOR FREE.

I dunno. It's one fucking thing to be a fansite and talk about things Transformers, it's another when half your main page is OFFICIAL: BUMBLEBEE A SUCCESS IN CHINA. It's so insecure and impotent.

I guess we can buckle in for another decade of really shitty Transformers movies. I'm thinking it might be a good time to give up on the franchise entirely.

Something doesn't have to be "good" to be profitable.

Go Sens Go.

But about the movie, it was a good start, and if Bumblebee was the first film in the franchise, then it would be an awesome start. Unfortunately, we were peddled 5 films of utter crap to get to here, so it's not surprising that fans are a little reserved in calling this film a fun, watchable movie with a decent plot, and very good character development. This movie truly was about a girl and her car (like the first film should have been).
