Where to watch all the Transformers movies and TV shows

In 1984, Hasbro and Takara Tomy released Transformers, a robot toy line that can be converted into vehicles, animals, or devices. These transformations explain the toys’ tagline, “Robots in Disguise.” The toy line then led to an animated series and animated film in the mid-1980s. However, it was not until Michael Bay launched the live-action Transformers film series in 2007 that the franchise eclipsed newfound popularity.

After six live-action films, Transformers is one of the 15 highest-grossing film series with over $4.8 billion worldwide. The seventh film, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, hits theaters on June 9, 2023. Catch up on the Transformers movies and TV shows before heading to the theater.

Unfortunately, the Transformers movies are not all located on one streaming service. Some of these films are not available on a streaming service. For instance, 2007’s Transformers and its sequel, 2009’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, are only available to rent or buy on services like Prime Video, iTunes, or Google Play.

However, the third live-action film, 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, is available to stream on Paramount+. Other Transformers films on Paramount+ include Transformers: Age of Extinction and Bumblebee.

The Paramount+ app can be found in the app store on your phone or tablet or through a connected TV like a Roku or Apple TV. The service can also be accessed on a desktop or laptop. After watching Transformers, watch other popular movies and shows on the platform, including Top Gun: Maverick, Mayor of Kingstown, Babylon, and Tulsa King.

The most recent Transformers from Bay, 2017’s Transformers: The Last Knight, is currently streaming on Fubo TV. For cable TV subscribers, The Last Knight is also available on SYFY.

The Transformers franchise is arguably one of the most successful film and television franchises to stem from a toy line. Bay’s live-action films are not perfect, but there are some cool action sequences and set pieces, especially in the first three films. Bumblebee was a surprisingly entertaining coming-of-age story set in the Transformers world. Plus, the animated series does a good job of introducing the major characters from the toy line.

Bay directed the first five live-action Transformers films, while Travis Knight helmed Bumblebee. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is directed by Steven Caple Jr., while Josh Cooley will direct the next animated film, Transformers Onescheduled to be released in 2024.

Like the hit Netflix show Ripley? Then watch these 3 movies and shows right now
Christian Bale smirks and points to a stero.

Anthony Minghella's The Talented Mr. Ripley is a masterful adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's iconic novel from 1955. The film stars Matt Damon as Tom Ripley, the charming criminal who cons his way into a life of wealth, luxury, and high social status. His means of acquiring these items, however, are a result of violent and murderous actions. While Damon is perfect as Tom, Andrew Scott (All of Us Strangers) provides a compelling interpretation of the notorious character in the new TV series, Ripley.

The eight-episode Netflix show has received positive reviews, with Digital Trends' A.A. Dowd calling Ripley a "terrifically tense thriller." After consuming Ripley, check out these three movies and TV shows with similar vibes to Ripley. Our selections include a Stephen King adaptation, a disturbing docuseries, and a brilliant satire.
