AMC’s panel discusses the big-screen debut of the Tom Cruise-Steven Spielberg-Michael Bay blockbuster “Transformers: Age of Extinction” in cinemas, with the star’s co-stars and producers.
In an interview with Recode, Cruise and Spielberg discuss their collaboration on the sci-fi blockbuster and the possibility of a sequel, as well as what the industry is up against from the threat of climate change and more.
“We’re going to do it again,” Spielberg said.
“I think the stakes are going to be higher.
I’m excited for it, I’m really excited about it.
It’s going to happen.”
He added, “I know that a lot of the people that are doing this have done things they can’t control, and they’re going out and trying to make the best movies they can and the best product they can.
So I think that’s really what this is about.
It will be great for the industry.”
While it’s the biggest-grossing film in the franchise, the film was also critically acclaimed and received strong box office and critical reviews.
And in its third year, the sequel is expected to earn more than $1 billion worldwide, with production set to begin later this year.
