Jongnic Bontemps Scores TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS Coming this June
TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS is an upcoming s.f./action film based on Hasbro’s Transformers toy line and primarily influenced by the Beast Wars storyline. The film is the seventh installment in the TRANSFORMERS film series and a stand-alone sequel to BUMBLEBEE (2018). Set in the year 1994, it returns to the action and spectacle that have captured moviegoers around the world. TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS will take audiences on a ‘90s globetrotting adventure with the Autobots and introduce a whole new breed of Transformer – the Maximals – to the existing battle on earth between Autobots and Decepticons. Directed by Steven Caple Jr. and starring Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback. Composer Jongnic Bontemps (WEDDING SEASON, GODFATHER OF HARLEM, 4400, VOODOO MACBETH, LEIMERT PARK, THE PEOPLE VS THE KLAN), a uniquely modern film composer, harmonizing a classical education with his rich tech background, is scoring the BEASTS film. He has scored dozens of features, documentaries, shorts, and video games in all genres, and previously worked with Caple on his directorial debut, THE LAND. Bontemps is the first person of color to compose for a live-action Transformers film, and the third composer in the series after Steve Jablonsky and Dario Marianelli. See his website here. TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS is scheduled to be released theatrically in the United States on June 9, 2023, by Paramount Pictures. Two sequels are in development.
