Transformers: Rise of the Beasts director Steven Caple Jr. has said the 1994 film will honor classic ’90s action flicks like Terminator 2.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will honor ’90s action movies with its period setting.
At a press conference attended by ComingSoon and other media outlets, director Steven Caple Jr. spoke about how the ’90s backdrop for the new Transformers the film will help to texture the film and bind it to Bumblebee.
“As a fan and watching all Transformers movies, then get into Bumblebee, I love the way it came back in ’87, “said Steven Caple Jr.” Again it just adds to the nostalgia and something people remember or connect with. So I was curious, when I met Lorenzo [di Bonaventura] and the team, I was like, where do we get this thing from? It was like 1994, and I was like, it’s a great time. You know what I mean? It has a lot of texture. It’s rich, its texture is also culturally vibrant. There is classical music and there is a certain energy in the ’90s that I can’t wait to capture. “
“We’ve seen it on screen very few times, sometimes a bit hokey, you play it too much, but I think there’s a level of reality that I could bring to it,” the director continued. “There’s a level of grain, but the grain that I’m naturally defaulting to, that we can really pop, you know, in terms of our world and the Autobots going into the ’90s and all the callbacks and the fun with which we can sort of play out there at this time. “
As to whether the film will pay homage to certain films, like Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Caple Jr. said the new Transformers will definitely fit into the lineage of the classic ’90s action flick.
“I think you’ll get the feeling of a journey and an expedition in this movie,” Caple Jr. said. “This go-around ties it all together to what you’re saying. Terminator 2 is classic. The heaviness of the metal, if you will, it all plays a role. So I think when you watch our movie and watch where we take it, [we] I kind of want to bring this classic expedition, this classic trip through New York and where we’re going from there. “
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, the seventh film in the franchise, will see the action leap from BumblebeeThe setting of the 80s in New York in 1994. It will see the return of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, as well as the introduction of classic characters like Arcee. And that will finally bring the Maximals into the live-action movies, as Optimus Primal, Rhinox, and Airazor have all been confirmed for the movie.
Directed by Steven Caple Jr., Transformers: Rise of the Beasts stars Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback, Peter Cullen and Ron Perlman. The film has yet to receive a release date.
