  • Transformers is a series of American science fiction action films directed by Michael Bay, and based on the toys created by Hasbro and Tomy. The first film, Transformers, was released in 2007, the second, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, in 2009, the third, Transformers: Dark of the Moon in 2011, and the fourth, Transformers: Age of Extinction in 2014. A fifth film is scheduled for a 2016 release without Bay directing. To date, the series has been distributed by Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks, and United International Pictures. In 2014, the live-action Transformers film series is now owned by Hasbro Studios' new self-finance/co-finance film production label Allspark Pictures. The series has received a mixed critical reception; critics expressed criticism on the thin plots, crude humor, and the lengths of the films. However, many praised the visual effects, action sequences, and music, and it is currently the 8th highest-grossing film series and the 4th highest-grossing when averaged to gross per film, behind the The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Pirates of the Caribbean film series.
