  • 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, and the third, Transformers: Dark of the Moon in 2011. Despite Bay's original confirmation on Dark of the Moon being his final installment in the franchise, Hasbro's CEO Brian Goldner expressed his hopes for further films to be made with or without Bay; a fourth film Transformers: Age of Extinction was subsequently confirmed, with Bay returning to direct, which was released in 2014, while a new directer will direct Transformers 5, for a 2016 release. To date, the series has been distributed by Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks, and United International Pictures. The series has received a largely mixed critical reception, with criticism focusing on the thin plots, undeveloped characters, crude humor and the lengths of the films.
