Extended Transformers Coming Back to IMAX
Thought you had enough Transformers on the big screen until the DVD hits? Well guess again. A report at ComingSoon says that Paramount is bringing Transformers back again, but this time in IMAX and with new footage you've never seen. Although as to exactly what the new footage is, no one knows. What?! I thought it couldn't get any better but it just did! The report says that it's hitting IMAX theaters again starting on September 21st.
According to Box Office Mojo, Transformers has made a whopping $634 million worldwide, $304m of which has been made in the US alone. A truly incredible haul for a movie that's not a sequel. Unfortunately this doesn't put it at the top of the box office earners, as that title is still held by Spider-Man 3 this year with $336m domestic.
I may actually make the trek back out the IMAX theater in town to see this new cut. I know there are Transformers lovers (like myself) and haters out there, but I'm very curious to see what's in the "extended" cut and how much there is; whether it's just a few more effects shots, boring talking scenes, or something really worthwhile. I'm not a big IMAX fan either, so let's hope they do a great job converting it for IMAX, too.
Anyone else going to try and catch this IMAX extended edition?
