Age of Extinction
Orci: Movie May Suffer Due To Strike

By bwbm on Wednesday, December 05, 2007



Roberto Orci, a third of the "Transformers 2" screenwriting trio, has updated the fandom on the status of the film with a posting at producer Don Murphy's message board.

The title of the thread was "An Apology," and Mr. Orci wrote that due to the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike, "the movie may suffer."

Mr. Orci writes that he has talked to some writers in the business and they are ready to hold out "forever." The writers are in dispute regarding DVD royalties and web royalties as the old media's new journey into the web continues to grow.

He also says that the movie "may be pushed back" from the principal photography date of June 2008, "or a host of other thing[s] may happen to it." What other things Mr. Orci is referring to are unknown, but he promised to keep us posted.

The following post is the complete message that Mr. Orci posted on Don Murphy's message board:
    How are you?

    As you know, all screenwriters are engaged in a labor dispute with the major studios and media conglomerates that subsidize much, but not all of the media content that we consume. It may go on for a very long time. All the other writers I've talked to on every level are ready to hold out FOREVER, all the while figuring out ways to make a living out of the internet without studios.

    So now the hard part for me and Alex and Ehren and all fans of Transformers is that the movie may suffer (unless of course you hate the first one so much that you feel our inattention is a bonus). It may be pushed back or a host of other thing may happen to it. For that we apologize truly.

    will keep you posted...

Our thanks to Blacklai who has shared more than one hundred photos of the Platinum Edition Dinobots Unleashed set. This set renders Grimlock, Scorn, Slug, Strafe and Slog in decos more in line with the movie's depiction of mostly colorless robot dinosaurs. These figures all feature plenty of chrome and silver paint with hints here and there of other colors in the individual decos. We've mirrored a small sample of this gallery, so click through to check them out. And if you want to see more be sure to hit up Blacklai's full gallery!
The Twitter of Japanese collector Alfes2010 has posted images of the Legendary Weapons that Takara is giving away this month.

Alfes has both but is having a lot more fun with the Prime Axe, showing it off with a Movie Prime as well as with both War For and Fall Of Cybertron Optimus Primes. Keep reading to see the photos!
Good news from our sponsor Big Bad Toy Store! They've just listed a new preorder for an additional run of the Bumblebee Dual Model Kit. Representing Bumblebee in his pre-AOE body style, this non-transforming model is a highly articulated frame that you build the armor on in order to complete the figure. The preorder listing has an expected arrival date of March 2015.
CinemaSins has posted the latest installment in their "Everything Wrong With) series, covering Transformers: Age of Extinction... and it's a two-part video clocking in at a total of 32 minutes. For comparison, the first Amazing Spider-Man film took them all of two minutes. Somehow Toy Story took them ten, so we may be looking at some editorial bloat as time goes on, but still... 32 minutes. Keep reading to see!
The official Transformers Facebook have posted a new video that takes a behind-the-scenes look at Jack Reynor’s stunt driving in Transformers: Age of Extinction.
