Bumblebee’s Opening Scene Is What Transformers Fans Have Always Wanted

Since the debut of the Transformers live-action franchise in 2007, each of the five films has enjoyed a degree of commercial success, with 2011's Dark of the Moon earning a series-high $1.123 billion worldwide, and last year's The Last Knight marking the low point, with $605.4 million. Yet, despite their blockbuster status, the films have been criticized by longtime fans for straying far away from the source material: the 1980s toy line and animated series.

The original cartoon focused primarily on the Autobots and the Decepticons waging an unending war, but the live-action films used that conflict more as a backdrop for the adventures of human characters. While that may also be true of Bumblebee, the latest installment of the franchise opts for a different approach. Not only does it offer some much-needed character development for everyone's favorite yellow Beetle, it also features the live-action debut of something Transformers fans have longed to see: the war for Cybertron, in all its '80s glory.

Michael Bay's five Transformers films briefly flashed back to the war for Cybertron, most notably in 2007's Transformers and in the opening scene of Dark of the Moon, but they never spent much time on that pivotal event. Those scenes were brief, and showed a much more generic depiction of the Transformers home planet, where indistinguishable Autobots and Deceptions battled each other.

However, right off the bat, Bumblebee lets us know it's a different kind of Transformers film. As soon as the movie begins, audiences are transported to a war-torn Cybertron that feels as if it were lifted straight from the original cartoon. Not only that, the Autobots and the Decepticons there are heavily inspired by their Generation One designs. You've probably seen glimpses of them in the marketing for Bumblebee, and we can confirm they're as glorious as old-school fans might have hoped.

Whether it's a bulky, red-and-blue Optimus Prime, a Soundwave that closely resembles the toy (complete with detachable Ravage), or a purple Shockwave, these are the Transformers you know, and they're waging a battle that is just like the one you imagined while playing with the classic action figures. Gone are the devastating explosions and gunfire that are hallmarks of Michael Bay films. Instead, the action is more cartoony, with robots firing colorful laser blasts at each another. The Decepticons are their usual evil selves; the Autobots are the desperate, cornered good guys; and Optimus Prime is his awesome, badass self.

Stephen Hawking's Final Book gives brief Answers to Big Questions

Stephen Hawking's final work was launched by his children on Monday which discuss issues from Existence of God to Time Travel and other big questions. His children completed his final book after he died last year.

Stephen started his book last year to answer the common question which he encountered many times from public. The title of the book is ''Brief Answers to Big Questions''.

His daughter, Lucy Hawking, said he was regularly asked for such question and this book contains his clear and most authentic answers. We all wish he was here to see it published, she added.

What are these big questions and what did he write answers to them?

Is there a God?How Did it All Began?What is inside a black hole?Can we predict the future?Is Time Travel possible?Will we survive on Earth?Is there any other intelligent life in Universe?Should we colonize space?How do we shape the future?Multiple challenges Stephen Hawking says the simplest explanation is that God does not exist and…

Russia Trying to Bring back Extinct Animals

A research facility is being settled in a region of Russia by Vladimir Putin at 4th Economic Eastern Forum which aims to study the remains and clone extinct animals like woolly mammoth, woolly rhinoceros, cave lion and breeds of long-gone horses of old times.

The investment sought for this project is 5.9Million USD.
