Empire Shines More Light On Revenge of the Fallen Twins & Other Characters
bwbm - Sunday, May 03, 2009


Empire Online has published an article on their website that provides some insights from cast and Director Michael Bay. The article is a slideshow of the recent release of the full Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen trailer with an snippet from a cast member or Mr. Bay, and the details reveal some spoilerish details about the plot and characters (robots included) that we never heard before.

Here's something you didn't see coming: the Twins combine. Yes, you read that right. The Twins Skids and Mudflap combine, according to the Empire article.

Although the Chevrolet Beat and Trax concept vehicles were both just gasoline-burning vehicles, the vehicles are hybrids in the film. This is similar to the James Bond film "Quantum of Solace," which featured Ford Edge vehicles styled to look like Fuel Cell Hybrids, which don't actually exist.

The article also reveals that the Autobots and Decepticons will indeed join forces to fight The Fallen. "The Fallen proves so powerful that Megatron must swallow his hate and join the Autobots against him," the article reveals.

Agent Simmons (John Turturro) now works at his mom's deli, which makes the "don't tell my mother" bit a more clear. "But he's never given up his dream. He knows what's going on, though nobody believes him," Turturro says.

The article also reveals that Mr. Turturro voices Jetfire. Mr. Bay says Jetfire is "running out of Energon, which keeps him going. When he falls down he creaks and he doesn't transform well - it's like arthritis."

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura reveals that the hieroglyphs are actually images of Transformers. He also says that "[t]he movie actually opens before the pyramids were built." He continues, "We tie the Transformers into the beginnings of civilisation."

Empire hints that Optimus Prime may not survive the ass-kicking we've seen him get so far in the footage from Revenge. The online edition of the magazine reports that the Peterbilt vehicle was not seen during the Cairo, Egypt shoot.

The filmmaking process to allow the actors to interact with the robots that will be put in later has gotten better and has allowed for more hands-on interaction. "They put wires on your face and when a robot grabs your face, they pull it," says Shia LaBeouf.

Finally, Mr. Bay admits the ending of Transformers was lame. But this time, he promises it'll get better. "You'll never have seen anything like it before." Thanks to "BLACKOUT34" for the catch!

Adding to my previous post... I want to say that the artifact that Sam picks up has to either do with The Fallen (piece of armor maybe?) or is part of Ravage's tail.

Nope, in the forest scene, Sam is wearing a dark long sleeve shirt. When he picks up that object, he is wearing a white shirt. You can see him wearing that white shirt in the scenes that take place in Egypt, some scenes he is wearing a jacket over it.

I wonder what the claw-like object sam picks up is.. it looks as if he's in the same forested area where prime's fighting blackout.. movie matrix perhaps?

To each their own...I did a revised version where Ravages head was up top, like Cybertron DCM, and it looked much better...Not so Voltron / Jungle Fury...

Wont that be a touching moment when Scorponok meets with his beloved revived master?

The LA Times has published an article today talking about Hasbro's forward-looking plans with their feature film business. As we'd heard about previously, Hasbro is planning their own cinematic universe in the style of Marvel's movies, bolstered by the runaway success of the Transformers film series. This article goes in to a little more detail on early plans for that, including a new try at GI Joe. There's also a little bit about next year's Bumblebee-focused spin off movie. Keep reading for select excerpts and a link to the article!
With the new Transformers: The Last Knight coming our way. I thought it would be interesting to share something rare and likely unseen from the first Transformers (2007) movie where it all began, 10 years ago. Behold, one of the fanciest Transformers press-kits you may have ever seen. Those who attended the Toy Fair 2007 special preview event, were given one of these press kits that actually transforms!
Just up on the official Prime 1 Studio Group page is a first look at their soon to be released Transformers Dark of the Moon edition Shockwave statue.

ThreeA has posted a preorder listing for their next Transformers Premium Scale Collectible Figure: Evasion Edition Optimus Prime from Transformers: Age of Extinction! The figure is in robot mode, so the callback to the Evasion Mode cab-forward truck is mainly one of deco. That said, there is a lot of deco on this figure. Keep reading to see!
Entertainment website Deadline is reporting that the Bumblebee-focused entry in the Transformers live action movie series due in 2018 now has a director on board. Travis Knight will have the distinction of directing the first live action film installment that won't be in Michael Bay's care. Knight was previously the director for Kubo And The Two Strings, and while that is a short credit list in this role, it's a pretty powerful first effort.
