Paramount must really have something against Warner Bros. First they scheduled Transformers 5 on Wonder Woman’s original release date, forcing Warner Bros. to push the date up. Then they wouldn’t allow Henry Cavill to shave his Mission Impossible: 6 mustache for Justice League, and now they’re putting another Transformers movie up against DC.
Paramount announced today that their Transformers spinoff, Bumblebee, will star John Cena and Hailee Steinfeld and open on December 21, 2018. If that date sounds familiar, it’s because that’s the date Warner Bros. set for Aquaman just a few months ago.
It’ll be interesting to see if Warner Bros. moves the release date for Aquaman like they did for Wonder Woman. It’s not a question of which will make more on the same weekend. Aquaman would beat Bumblebee. But you have to consider how much more Aquaman would make if it had the weekend to itself, and wasn’t going up against another big action movie.
What do you all make of this news? Let me know in the comments below.
