Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Delayed One Year

Bad news for Transformers movie fans. Paramount has announced that Transformers: Rise of the Beasts release date has been delayed a full year. The release date is moved from June 24, 2022 to June 9, 2023. 

The move is COVID related as Paramount moved their 2020 tentpole releases of Top Gun: Maverick and Mission: Impossible 7 to 2021. They then delayed those further to 2022 so that would mean 2022 releases get bumped to 2023. The reasons are many but ultimately it comes down to limited marketing budget plus limited screens means making sure one movie release doesn't negatively impact another of their releases.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Completes Principle Photography

In a post on his Instagram page, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts director Steven Caple Jr posted image of himself sitting in the Optimus Prime truck saying "That's a wrap." 

While it could mean that its a wrap for Peru, considering the filming has been going on for months, more than likely its for the film itself.  What is next is post-production with editing the film, visual effects, sound, music and more.  Basically the the film is at the half way point of reaching its June 24, 2022 release date.

New Video Show Off Scourge's Killer Trophies

A new video posted to Tik Tok of Optimus Prime and Scourge trucks driving around in Cuzco, Peru as Transformers: Rise of the Beasts continues to film in the country. 

The main thing to note is the front grill of the Scourge truck as it shows a bunch of Transformers insignia that includes Decepticons, Autobots, Maximal, and others. Its clearly the trophies of many deadly encounters with the character. 

Below is another video of Scourge and Prime also driving around but not with the same ability to check out the grill of Scourge. For more, head over to Tik Tok and view additional images here.
