Director Michael Bay has “let the cat out of the bag” for the upcoming Transformers film, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” There are quite a few spoilers that have been leaked to this month’s Empire Magazine (April 2011.)
Warning: The following are spoilers for the new Transformer film. (You’re going to read this anyway, aren’t you?) (Special thanks to knook at tfw2005.com)
The Apollo 11 ‘incident’ shown in the teaser is a big government secret.
There will be no dorky humor (“We wanted to make the movie much more serious, more adult.”)
The robots will be given more ‘weight’ in the story (“They were missed in movie two. We’ve given them a strong back-story and pathos.”)
When a robot dies, it will actually die. And that death will be seen onscreen. We’re not bringing people back.
Starscream and Shockwave will have new companions. “The scale on one of them is jaw dropping” – “It will be, what the Hell was that thing?”
Sentinel Prime is “A big brother and mentor to Optimus Prime.”
There will be no army. Chicago is left in the hands of the Autobots (but some heroes sneak in through the back-door so to speak.)
The human gliders are used because they slip under the Decepticons’ radar – as do humans – so they’ll be the people who can hammer it to the ‘Cons and create an opening for the Autobots.
The Ferrari is a Decepticon nicknamed ‘Dreadbox.’
There will be no sand.
Rumors are running rampant from fans about a new combiner Transformer, and/or ships that change as well. Also, there is a strong possibility that the Decepticon Ferrari will infiltrate the Autobots as an undercover spy.
“Transformers: Dark of the Moon” will be released in 3D and stars Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, John Malkovich, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hugo Weaving (voice of Megatron,) Frances McDormand, Peter Cullen (voice of Optimus Prime,) Kevin Dunn, Julie White, Tyrese Gibson, and Alan Tudyk. The film is scheduled to open in Egypt on June 29th, and then in the United States on July 1st. The story is written by Ehren Kruger. Michael Bay directs.
