Chicago Meets Optimus Prime, Bayhem & Tyrese in TRANSFORMERS 3
MichaelBay.com directs us over to this TRANSFORMERS 3 video along with a brief description – “Optimus Prime turns the corner hard followed by an explosion on the corner of Jackson and LaSalle.” Cool beans that this guy got a link from Bay.
I’m all for Bay and his penchant for explosions, but not if its Optimus Prime!! However, I do like the long trailer that Optimus is finally sporting.
On Sunday, Tyrese “Epps” Gibson posted these pictures over on Twitter ( @Tyrese4ReaL). “My New Uniform for Tranformers 3 revealed!!” and “Me & Rosie working hard!! She’s a sweet one!!”
Sam, Optimus and the rest of the usual suspects will be battling Shockwave, the robot cyclops-turned-laser-cannon, who became dictator of Cybertron after the other Autobots and Decepticons journeyed to Earth.
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently told IGN that as far as he’s concerned TRANSFORMERS 3 should be the final film in the franchise.
“I would think so…It may not be the end of the line of Transformers for Hasbro and Paramount,” he laughed. “But I would think so… [Director] Michael [Bay] I’m sure is… He’s spent a lot if years working on one thing.”
Even Bay said as much in an interview with USA Today last month.
“As a trilogy, it really ends,” he says. “It could be rebooted again, but I think it has a really killer ending.”
The third installment stars Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, James Avery (Silverbolt), Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, and Ken Jeong. Directed by Bay, with a screenplay from Ehren Kruger, TRANSFORMERS 3 will be in theaters next summer in 3D on July 1, 2011.
