Re: Labeouf Wants 18 Million To Return To Transformers 4

Maybe the only reason he wants to do TF4 is so they can kill off Sam. Don't think that wouldn't start a stampede..TOWARDS the theaters

WALL-E had one human in it (played by Fred Willard). Not sure if that's enough to count.

Patrick Stewart was paid $14 million for ST Nemesis. Now that's a tragedy. Based on the commercial success of Transformers $18 million for a lead would be dirt cheap.
Take away Patrick Stewart from TNG films and no one would see them.
No one saw the ones he was in. Nemesis made, what? 40 mil it's opening weekend?

Now you are just making things up.

FC and GEN did great, and INS did okay.

Only NEM was a flop.

TOS cast also had one flop movie with TFF, but that doesn't mean their entire film series was a failure.

Fred Willard is awesome. Pure comedy gold. Especially when he cameos on Tonight Show

You're right. I should've said "people STOPPED watching the ones he was in." As you say... GEN and FC did great... and then INS did okay... and then a flop.

Sounds like some franchise was LOSING it's audience.


TOS also cast had one flop with TFF.
Yet, they REBOUNDED with XI... hm....

They didn't know that went they made Nemesis. In hindsight it wasn't a good idea to pay Stewart so much, but they can't pay him less since actors are paid more the more sequels they do.

I'm arguing more money to Stewart made sense, since he was an important part of TNG movies.

I'm suggesting they dump Shia, since he was never that important to the series and get someone new.

You are arguing they might as well pay Shia that much since the Transformers movies make a lot of money.

Disagreed.

Yet, they REBOUNDED with XI... hm....
TOS cast also had one flop movie with TFF, but that doesn't mean their entire film series was a failure. I was saying the same for TNG films.

I like that he knows just how money will convince him to do stuff he was just saying a few months ago that he hated and would never, ever do again.

Re: Labeouf Wants 18 Million To Return To Transformers 4

^ The first Transformers (live action) film is one of my favorite movies ever made. So I would say yes, since I'm 42.

Re: Labeouf Wants 18 Million To Return To Transformers 4

Sometimes movies are just a lot of fun. I remember seeing the first Transformers in theaters. About a third of the way through the movie, I remember leaning over to my friend and whispering, "I am liking this movie way more than I should be."

It was just a fun ride.
