The seventh Transformers film has been removed from Paramount's release state. Originally scheduled to be released in June 2019, the sequel was set to follow Transformers: The Last Knight which scored the franchise its lowest global box office performance since beginning in 2007 ($605m from a budget of $217m). Spin-off Bumblebee, based on the robot character of the same name, will be released this December. The third Transformers film, 2011's Dark of the Moon, gave the franchise its peak with a staggering $1.12 billion. However, while leading all studios to gross a domestic $1.95 billion that same year, Paramount saw a drastic drop in revenue earning $534m domestically in the past year. Paramount's new CEO Jim Gianopulos, who replaced Grey who passed away last May, promised that Bumblebee will be “a more character-driven” Transformers film.

The scene -- replayed from several angles for the CinemaCon crowd in Las Vegas -- involved a 220 mile-an-hour (340 kph) "halo" ("high altitude, low open") skydive during which he grabs Henry Cavill's character in mid-air. Cruise, a 55-year-old veteran of more than 50 movies who broke his ankle during another of the film's stunts, simulates going into a spin when he is hit by lightning almost immediately after leaping out of his plane at around 30,000 feet (9,000 meters). "This movie, it is without a doubt the most epic 'Mission' that we've made and it's a film that is adventurous, it's … [Read more...] about Cruise control: ‘M:I6’ star shines as Paramount, Universal wow CinemaCon
