More New Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Photos from USA Today
It is officially Transformers Monday! In addition to Empire's three photos from earlier today, USA Today has debuted another new set of photos from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. They've also provided some additional details surrounding the production and the plot. "This time, Optimus teams up with the U.S. military to take on the evil Decepticons, who have invaded Earth to capture Sam (Shia LaBeouf). He has learned some secrets about the origins of the Transformers and their ancient history -- information, it turns out, that is worth war." Sounds like the makings of an awesome sequel to me!
To prove just how much is going into Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, USA Today talked extensively about their military interaction. "The Pentagon gave its stamp of approval to the film and allowed production amid the dunes of the Army's New Mexico missile range. 'They let us do the run of things,' Bay says. 'We have so many military assets. Plus, this is a missile range -- we can just fire into the set. It's a great place.'" And to top that off, for the first time in history, they were allowed to shoot in Giza, Egypt near the pyramids and were even allowed to shoot on them, which has never been allowed before.
In regards to the last photo, USA Today says: "In the sequel, humanity is still trying to sort out which Transformers can be trusted and which mean to exterminate humans. Authentic military personnel were hired to show just how they might actually handle an over-the-top situation like an alien robot invasion."
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is again directed by action film superstar Michael Bay of Bad Boys, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, The Island, and Transformers previously. The story and screenplay for the sequel was written by Transformers writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci as well as Ehren Kruger (The Ring, The Brothers Grimm, Blood and Chocolate). Paramount is unleashing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in both IMAX and regular theaters on June 26th this summer. We'll be there!

If I get deployed before for this movie is released I'm writing my senator. I'm in the military and I think it's great that actually military personnel are helping with production. If there is one thing I hate most is a sorry ass salute and a bunch of guys running around with pizza hats as berets. AIRBORNE!!

#8 I titally agree with you. If you're gonna put a costume on someone and give them a haircut at least have them do a proper salute.. excpet John Tuturro, it fits him perfectly.

I am the only one who thought the first one was a terrible, terrible film? Over the top (but not in a good way) shitty jokes and horrible scripting. This is a definate miss for me.
Ben on Dec 29, 2008
seriously though need a trailer.

#12 the first transformers was basically a B movie with a big budget. quit bitching, it made fun of itself the entire time
tashawnda on Dec 29, 2008
the problem i had with the first one was that i couldn't escape the feeling that it could have been so much better if they had focused more on the story and not so much with the eye candy

I guess kids need something to watch after all, the movie doesn't give me anything back, just some blah blah and boom boom (hollywood's best). Please enjoy it those who will. I'm not one of them.

Hopefully this one will portray government agents in a more dignify manner. Not just cartoon figures meant to amuse kids.
Baron the Curse on Dec 29, 2008
freaking awesome news!! can't wait for a trailer to this one....
thejugfather on Dec 29, 2008
Seriously, complaining about the lack of story in Transformers?? It was a cartoon created to sell toys. Give it a rest.
GK on Dec 29, 2008
I just pray that's not John Turturro in the middle screen. I love him in most movies, but his character and everything in the same style as his character ruined the first movie.

Is the last pic the Army discovering Astro Train? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought he was rumored to be in it.
Sweet on Dec 30, 2008
with the ones that hate sorry ass salutes, have you guys seen Vin Diesel's salute in the pacifier? that made me puke. @ 19 i do believe it was a toy line first then the cartoon came afterwards.
that guy on Dec 30, 2008
goddamnit i can't wait
vu on Dec 30, 2008
19 your right it did feel more like a 2 1/2 hour comercial trying to get kids to by transformers toys then an actual movie
cali on Dec 31, 2008
Damn! i live in Egypt and i didn't get the chance to see any crap...They didn't allow anyone to go and watch the shooting.
