Transformers to continue relentless march into movie theaters in 2017

Looking for more Bumblebee and Optimus Prime? Paramount Pictures says three new "Transformers" movies will be released in the next three years.

Get ready for more Optimus Prime. The next "Transformers" movie will be released next year, with another in 2018 and another in 2019.

Get ready to see your movie plans transform over the next few years. Paramount Pictures said Friday there will be one new "Transformers" movie every year for the next three years beginning in 2017.

The latest "Transformers" movie, "Age of Extinction," didn't exactly wow the critics when it came out in 2014. The movie scores a 5.8 out of 10 on IMDb, 32 out of 100 on Metacritic and a rotten 18 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Despite being not that great of a movie, it still managed to bring in more than $1 billion worldwide.

Paramount Pictures is obviously keen to keep raking it in, announcing in October that we can expect at least four more "Transformers" movies to grace the big screen.

Paramount Pictures told CNET on Friday that "Transformers 5" will be released in theaters June 23, 2017, in the US, followed by "Transformers 6" on June 8, 2018, and "Transformers 7" on June 28, 2019.

Michael Bay will direct "Transformers 5," which he revealed to Rolling Stone would be his last in the series. Bay, who has directed the previous installments, plans to pass the reins to another director.

Do you plan on seeing "Transformers 5" when it lands in theaters in just over 16 months, or are you Optimus Prime-d out? Let us know in the comments below.
