Dunno if this a marketing tricks or promotional plot to boost up the hype of the movie. The studio love's it so much till they start to do the 2nd movie: Transformers 2 Movie Already in Development
Michael Bay’s Transformers won’t hit movie theater screens until mid-summer - two months from today to be exact. Yet, Dreamworks is already planning a sequel.
Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura told the LA Times that the studio liked what they’ve seen so much so that they are “already developing a Transformers sequel script.” No word on who is involved, but I would suspect that screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman would be involved (if they can find time away from JJ Abrams Star Trek and Michael Bay’s 2010 film 2012: The War for Souls).
If Frenzy is a cassette tape, then he is media. So, usually its either the obsolete DAT tape or a DVD. But if he is DVD, itsa going to be very interesting indeed.
The best part would be when Frenzy tries to play a Sony DVD with DRM and he freezes up, screaming, "Damn you propriety format!!!! Long ... live... Open Sourc..." and he dies.
New trailer is up... and man I can't wait to see this. Optimus transforming WITH the sound from cartoon! Starscream jumping up and transforming! Starscream transforming and landing on a street, sending some cars flying! Megatron about to stomp on Jazz in mid flight! Ironhide evading a missile and returning fire with his own missile! Blackout transforming as he lands in the middle of the street! Bonecrusher skating, ripping through the bus like previous trailer and skating on some more!
Quite simply, the best movie I've seen in a very long time.
Sure there are a lot of plot holes, but it's based on a toy line and then a cartoon, for God's sake. Turn of the brain, and enjoy the big robots beating the crap (and firing missiles) at each other, the fantastic transformations (I can see why the blocky old G1 style wont really work if you study the toys' hinges and how they used to transform), and Peter Cullen's voice.
It's Michael Bay's hyperkinetic action directorial style, but moderated by Steven Spielberg (old ET Spielberg, not the new Memoirs of a Geisha Spielberg) and embellished by the writers of X-Men Kurtzman and Orci (and the Blue Beetle comic writer John Rogers), all cooked up and served by the fantastic wizards of d**n ILM.
I've seen it once during opening day and tomorrow I'm watching it again.
