First Look: New Autobot 'Sentinel Prime' from Bay's Transformers 3!
We still haven't seen an actual trailer for Michael Bay's Transformers: Dark of the Moon yet, just some awesome TV spots, but thanks to a reveal of some info over on TrailerAddict, we know a teaser is coming in a few weeks. In the meantime, Empire (via ComingSoon) debuted a new cover featuring an Autobot called Sentinel Prime, who's a "big brother and mentor to Optimus Prime." Obviously he's going to have to come in and help out. Other news from the mag is that TF3 won't have "dorky humor" or "sand", but they will give "weight" to the bots again: "when robots die, they're really going to die and we're gonna show that." Damn.
Bay describes this third installment as "kind of like a spy movie." Bay also reveals the Ferrari is a Decepticon named Dreadbox, and there's a bot that "the scale on one of them is jawdropping." Can't wait for more!
Transformers: Dark of the Moon is again directed by everyone's favorite explosive director, Michael Bay, of the previous two Transformers movies as well as Bad Boys I and II, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and The Island. The screenplay was written by Ehren Kruger, who co-wrote the Revenge of the Fallen script but went solo this time, and also worked on The Ring, The Skeleton Key and Brothers Grimm screenplays. Paramount is bringing Transformers 3 to theaters everywhere in 3D starting July 1st, 2011 this summer!
