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?

Typically Transformers movies have had budgets around the 200 million dollar level, which includes The Last Knight with an estimated budget of $217 million - which according to Box Office Mojo, it still has not made back in its domestic ticket sales* as of July 20th. With this in mind, it's perhaps little surprise that the next movie up, the prequel focused on Bumblebee is being run much more lean. Screenrant has reported on the situation and given us a surprisingly low budget projection for the movie. Keep reading to find out what the film will be working with!


With production having just begun on next year's Bumblebee-focused movie, one would hope that assembling a cast has been on someone's mind. The Hollywood Reporter brings word of a number of young actors currently in talks for parts in the film, following behind leads Hailee Steinfeld and Jorge Lendeborg, Jr. No one involved has given any specifics yet towards the story, only sticking to the rundown of Lorenzo di Bonaventura that it'll be smaller, less robots, and more character development focused. Keep reading to find out more about the newest round of casting!
It is that time of year again when the annual Transformers Hall of Fame nominees are chosen by you to the Transformers fans. This year we have 12 brand new choices lined from all the movies in for the Favorite Robot Movie Character Poll. That's where you come in. We need your help in narrowing this down to the top three characters. Those will be sent onto Hasbro who will count the grand total of votes from many sites with the winner announced at HasCon 2017. Vote now through Saturday at midnight on the Poll after the jump.
According to Hollywood reporter, actor Jorge Lendeborg Jr. is currently in talks to play the male lead in the next Transformers movie that is tentatively referred to as the "Bumblebee Movie". Jorge has played roles in The Land (2016), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Brigsby Bear (2017). Set sometime in the 1980s, the lead female role will be played by Hailee Steinfeld. The choice of the new lead role, will give us a better idea of what kind of movie this may be. As word has it, this one will feature less robots, and more human character development.
According to the LA Times, the next foray into the Transformers Movie Universe will get a record $22 Million tax credit for shooting the movie entirely in California, USA. The money comes from what is being called a "state program aimed at curbing so-called runaway production." Is it just me, or does it seem odd WE the people should foot the bill for productions that all the profit goes back to the studio? California is not alone, Michigan and other states have provided these incentive before. The idea being, these productions will bring jobs and income to the state.
