Both films have received significant delays, with ‘Transformers” being pushed back almost an entire year.
Paramount has decided to push back two of its most anticipated films. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and Star Trek will both see delays of at least half a year. The significant date changes come as Paramount welcomes its new CEO, Brian Robbins.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts was scheduled to be released on June 24, 2022. The film is now going to be released on 9 June 2023. The film will center around Anthony Ramos in a lead role along with Dominique Fishback in 1994 as a pair of archeologists who come across an ancient conflict. The Predacons, Maximals, and the Terrorcons are all set to appear in the film. Peter Cullen will also be making his return as the voice of Optimus Prime, having voiced the character in the original 1980s animated series.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will be directed by Steven Caple Jr. Earlier this year, Caple discussed his concept for the newest Transformers installment, drawing inspiration from Beast Wars: Transformers, a series that debuted in the 1990s.
Not many details are known about the newest Star Trek film. The plot, casting, and overall development of the film have been kept under wraps. Audiences know that the project is currently set to be directed by Matt Shakman, with a script written by Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. The film’s original release date was going to be 9 June 2023 but has been pushed to 23 December 2023.
With the dates pushed back for two heavily anticipated titles, audiences can hope the studios use that time to refine projects to be as beloved as previous installments.
