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...

Ever wonder what the huge, hyper-detailed, movie Transformers statues from Prime 1 Studio look like in-package? Thanks to a poster on Baidu, now we know! This is a really impressive piece, a statue that looks like it walked out of the 2007 movie, standing at 50 centimeters or over a foot and a half tall.

Just in from Licensing Expo in Las Vegas via comingsoon.net, we have our first piece of promotional material for the 2018 Transformers movie, which will focus on Bumblebee at some point before the main film series. Transformers Universe: Bumblebee as it is currently titled on the poster has been said to skew younger, and have a smaller robot cast. There was also the hint that the 1980's might be the target time period for the story. You can find the image that was on display at the expo mirrored below.
It is official, Michael Bay, the director with five Transformers and a slew of other blockbuster movies under his belt has been given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, today.

UPDATED with information on the Transformers Live Show! Sys-Con Media reports that Hasbro has partnered with DMG Entertainment to create a new Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality experience centered around Transformers. The first of these "digital simulation experience centers" will open in Shanghai this summer, with plans to expand across China over five years. No plans outside of China have yet been announced, but the project is said to be designed "with the global audience in mind." Keep reading for info!
After the recent trademarking of what's believed to be the Bumblebee Movie logo, Hasbro continues preparing for its 2018 cinematic outing with a new trademark reported by Transformers@TheMoon: Bee Vision. Really, what are the odds this isn't related to the Bumblebee Movie? With the trademark specifically calling out toy masks as a potential use, it looks like there'll be some type of roleplay-toy gimmick in next year's movie toys. Keep reading for the data!
