Transformers 3 - Dark of the Moon - the new Transformers movie
Monday, October 11, 2010: The official name of the three-quel of the Transformers series has been made public, with the following information:
Transformers 2 - Revenge of the Fallen
Friday, February 06, 2009 (pm): Prime's Smackdown Close-up - Yep more screenshots from the trailer, this time showing a blowup of the devastating blow to Optimus Prime. The detail is extraordinary but it is still hard to tell exactly what is hitting him. It possible in the first image there are tank tracks and some hieroglyphics in the second but there is also a ton of rust showing so its hard to tell for sure. Mostly simply posting the pictures because they are so fantastic looking. Thanks to Lynx for the pictures. -Knightshade
Friday, February 06, 2009 (am): Autobots At Chicago Auto Show - Autoblog is reporting that they plan on bringing their fleet of Autobot cars to the Chicago Auto Show on February 11th. GM will hold a press conference scheduled to start at 10:15am CST at the Chevrolet exhibit at McCormick Place. The vehicles that may be there include the Chevy Camaro(Bumblebee), Chevy Volt(Jolt), Chevy Spark (Skids), Chevy Trax (Mudflap for now), and Corvette Centennial concept (Sideswipe).
Official Transformers Video Game Trailer - Activision has officially released the video game trailer for Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. The game will be available on current consoles and PCs. The game will be similar to the first movies, in that you can play as Autobots or Decepticons and each Transformer will have abilities and weapons specific to them along with the instant Transformation switch. There will also be multiplayer modes to you can wreck havoc on each other. There is no release date yet, but I imagine it will come out about the same time as the movie.
It is good to hear Peter Cullen doing Optimus Prime. The graphics are solid but not sure if what was shown is in game graphics are not. Now most significantly is the end of the trailer where they explicitly merge the Decepticon logo into the face on movie poster indicating a clear link. In addition below are a few pictures from IGN that show off the character models and also Bumblebee fighting off a Decepticon. One thing I noticed about the Decepticon is that its alt mode may look very close to the M270 Launch Rocket System which I think was one of the photos in -=boM=-'s gallery. A gallery that Paramount has since had pulled from the web (update below).-Knightshade
New Live-Action Transformers Movie, Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks with Michael Bay
Monday, December 18, 2006: An exclusive movie trailer has popped up on Yahoo. Things seem to really be taking off now, and over the past 12 months we have seen many of the rumors come to fruition, this is just one more example. The Transformers are coming to life, beautiful!
Saturday, July 01, 2006: It seems the rumor posted on Wednesday was 100% correct. Check out the teaser now!
Is this Bumblebee?
Wednesday, June 28, 2006: (Possible trailer spoiler warning). Not sure if this has been verified, but seems legit. Our Savanna recounts the deleted thread at our forums. I'm keeping it at rumor status, but it's really a moot point since there's less than a week till the trialer hits theaters anyways!
Sunday, June 18, 2006: (Possible spoiler warning) A recent account from the Transformers movie set has it that a 'battle' between an AC-130H Gunship and its crew (the 16th Special Operations Squadron) was filmed late last month. The commander of the aircraft, Aircraft commander Capt. Shawn Sharitt, told reporter, Mladen Rudman, the gunship and other aircraft were sent in to save a village from 'a spider-like creature'. Speculation already has it that this 'creature' is Scorponok. Read the full account here.
Monday, June 5, 2006: Set images are beginning to trickle out over the net. Several of the airmen at (though not necessarily stationed at) Holloman Air Force Base will be extras in the film. The images below were taken from here. See also here for more set images and details.
Director Michael Bay on the set of Transformers
Saturday, June 3, 2006: A teaser trailer is scheduled to hit theaters on July 4, 2006. This is exactly one year prior to the film release date. A possibly movie poster has shown up (see left), with a possible slogan for the movie "Their war. Our world." Pretty ominous!
Monday, April 24, 2006: Well there has not been much to report on the movie front lately...until now! It seems the movie is now in position to begin filming. Director Michael Bay and Dreamworks Studio runner Steven Spielberg have been spotted running around the small town of Alamogordo, New Mexico (NM).
Friday, July 15, 2005: Not much new Movie news from the Hasbro panel at SDCC, only that there will be a toy line based on the new movie (big surprise...). They did show a film short with some pre-production concepts an illustrations as well as some words from Steven Spielberg. Oh, and movie Soundwave will be a helicopter (at least that's the plan as of today, but we all know how these things change!)
Wednesday, July 13, 2005: Hasbro's site has just issued a firm-sounding release date of the new Transformers Movie. They write:
TRANSFORMERS WILL BE MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE AT THEATRES NATIONWIDE ON 07-04-07
Monday, July 11, 2005: A slight speedbump reported by Producer Don Murphy last evening. He writes,
Friday, June 24, 2005: The movie is rumored to have gone into pre-production according to our friend (evildeadbatman). Also, a couple of images from a movie press-release gathering have surfaced thanks to Joe Black. Monday, April 4, 2005: News of the new Transformers Movie has gone mainstream--stories can be found in such media outlets as CNN and AOL. A few updates worth noting here:

Monday, September 1, 2003: Producer Tom DeSanto discusses plans for the new TFTM in an interview with Dreamwatch magazine: "There's no better mythology to bring to the big screen than Transformers. Transformers has got great characters and created an iconic world, and the mythology still resonates with people 20 years after it was launched. Even though they're robots the characters have a lot of personality and a lot of heart and people still care about them. That's a great thing. The the film will combine live-action with CGI. I think it's going to be something the audience has never seen before. In all the years of movie-making, I don't think the image of a truck transforming into a 20-foot tall robot has ever been captured on screen. I also want to make a film that's a homage to 1980s movies and gets back to the sense of wonder that Hollywood has lost over the years. It will have those Spielberg-ian moments where you have the push-in on the wide-eyed kid and you feel like you're 10 years old even if you're 35. That's the energy I want to go for. We want to get to the core of what makes Transformers great. We're going to get back to the heart of what Transformers is and distill that into a movie. The live-action version will be based on Generation One and set on Earth. I am rewatching all the cartoons and reading all the comics."

Friday, June 13, 2003: Hasbro lets it be known to all that it has entered into Agreement with Movie Producers Tom DeSanto and Don Murphy for Full Length, Live-Action Transformers Movie.
PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 11, 2003--Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE:HAS) announced today that it entered into an agreement with the highly successful producers Tom DeSanto (X-Men and X2: X-Men United) and Don Murphy (currently producing 20th Century Fox's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) for a full length, live-action movie based on Hasbro's enormously popular TRANSFORMERS brand.
"TRANSFORMERS enjoys an amazing fan base worldwide, and we believe that we can create an incredibly fast-paced, exciting movie that will be appealing to anyone who loves action films," said Don Murphy.
"TRANSFORMERS is one of those rare properties that has been embraced by a generation around the world. Like X-Men, TRANSFORMERS offers an amazing mythology with all the elements to create a successful ongoing franchise, iconic characters, global themes, and a world that has never been seen before on screen," said Tom DeSanto.
"The property has been successful in every arena it has played in throughout the world - toys, comic books, television - and we now believe it's time to take TRANSFORMERS to the next level, and into a live-action event movie," continued DeSanto.
"We're thrilled to have entered into an agreement with the very talented and accomplished Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto," said Brian Goldner, President of Hasbro's U.S. toys group. "TRANSFORMERS is a natural for the big screen, and both Tom and Don have the track record and skill to bring to life a TRANSFORMERS movie that will be action-packed and flawlessly executed."
Hasbro's focus on the TRANSFORMERS brand is consistent with the Company's strategy of driving and extending its core brands through innovative toys and games as well as other forms of entertainment. TRANSFORMERS is one of the most popular boys toy brands, with sales up 64% in 2002 vs. 2001. First introduced in the U.S. market in 1984 as a toy line, the success of TRANSFORMERS continues to grow in a wide-range of entertainment categories. The hit television show TRANSFORMERS ARMADA airs on Cartoon Network seven times a week, with more than 12 million viewers. The show also airs in Europe and Australia. TRANSFORMERS ARMADA comic books, published by Dreamwave are also highly successful, with some of the most popular titles in the industry. The comic books are also translated and distributed in many markets around the world. There will be new TRANSFORMERS television programming and comic books launching in 2004.
"The Hasbro Properties Group (HPG) continues to deliver on its mission of extending Hasbro's rich portfolio of brands beyond toys and games and into multiple forms of entertainment," said Jane Ritson-Parsons, HPG President. "Our alignment with Tom DeSanto and Don Murphy demonstrates the power of our TRANSFORMERS brand and our determination to leverage our properties aggressively and creatively."
