A truckload of Transformers 3 set pics have come in, including a hero shot of the revamped Optimus truck!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. A Chicago based spy who calls himself "Size Matters" did some scouting for us yesterday and brought back a lot of images of cars and destruction from the set of Transformers 3. I think the last pic, of Optimus looking slightly more G1-ish than usual (I think it's the blue on the actual container), is pretty sweet, personally.





































Thanks "Size Matters" for the cool pics! -Quint quint@aintitcool.com Follow Me On Twitter

    yeah they made the corvette a convertible in this one for some reason. and you're right, it doesnt look right at all. as for Prime's trailer, i do love the little nod to G1 with the design on the sides but they should have put his autobot symbol on the "line" like the cartoon instead of on the front of the trailer. :p

    Both Of Them Sucked, But BF2 Broke The Mold

    by LaserPants

    It literally is one of the worst movies I have every seen in my entire life. I mean, it's SO bad it's like they went out of their way to make it suck on purpose. The whole thing made absolutely no sense whatsoever, but that final fight scene? Where the Arizona desert and "Somewhere in the Middle East" are right next to each other? Does anyone have ANY idea what was going on? I had no idea. I literally had no idea who were the good guy Bionicles and who were the bad ones. Maybe that was the point? Bay wanted to convey the whole "fog of war" phenomenon? Holy crap! Is BF2 secretly brilliant?? Is it secretly a post-modernist deconstruction of war and films about war?? <br><br>No, of course not. It's just some coke-head's hacked out disasterpiece for ADHD Nation.

    Don't get suckered again, man! Save your money and buy the dvd box set of the original shows and animated movie, instead. Also, get Transformers: War For Cybertron -- it's what the movies SHOULD have been, but tragically weren't.

    Plus what's with those cars? They took the pile of junk look from the robot forms and added them to the vehicle forms? God this shit keeps getting worse and worse. Waiting for the reboot in 10 years which will be based off of High Moon's video game.

  • July 12, 2010, 1 p.m. CST

    I liked the reviewer a few years back who said...

    by Half-Baked-Goggle-Box-Do-Gooder

    ..That with "ROTF", Bay had made the world's first quarter-billion dollar indie art-school film. Meaning a totally incoherent, incomprehensible gushing of visual diarrhea from the pinwheeling id of a hyper-ADD narcissistic man-child. <P>Who wants to bet any cash that this one will be even worse than the first two put together?

    by redkamel

    This will be interesting. Its like the God and Hot Burrito puzzle. <p> Its a sequel by Bay, so its almost guaranteed to be worse. But can Bay make a movie worse than the worse movie in recent history?

    RIP Harvey Pekar

    by JayLenoTookMyJob

    I posted that here because Michael Bay movies are the complete antithesis of what Mr. Pekar stood for, so he'd probably get a kick out of that. BTW Harry, if you've even heard of Harvey Pekar, or even if not, get off your ass and put up an obit, or get someone who knows a little about him to do it. Geez. "Ain't It Late News", as usual.

    just leave the internet and you'll see its a totally different world where 95% of people actually liked it. its always interesting to see how "the net" views things and thinks its opinion is the one shared by everyone when its in fact a very small minority. this applies to every other movie as well.

    those nascars...

    by Bouncy X

    other sites are calling them Stunticons but either way i get the feeling they either dont transform at all and are just A.I. controlled cars or they're made by the humans a la Mad Max.

  • July 12, 2010, 1:18 p.m. CST

    Addendum...

    by atomicagent007

    I'm sure this has been said before but Bay is not the one to totally blame for these shitpies. Before he lenses a damn thing the writers(Orci & Kurtzman) are the ones coming up with this dreck & then the various property owners & producers have to sign off on it. Not sure that anyone could have made a decent movie with these scripts but Bay certainly did not help. You want to make a good TF movie? STAY TRUE TO THE FUCKING CHARACTERS!! Example: TF2 failed off the bat the moment Megatron willingly knelt in front of another character & called him master. That's certainly not the Megs i grew up with.

    Totally awesome. I'd never look twice at those...

    by Darth Macchio

    ...if I saw them on the street. High-tech concept cars valued at hundreds or millions of dollars. I'd look at a Terminatrix's robo-inflato-boobies but not "only one in existence" concept cars hiding in plain sight. Nope. Never even take a second glance if I saw and heard one of those humming down the street.<p>Especially if it was a convertible with a hot chick with boob spillage...nope..never would I look at that in a million years! Hiding in plain sight dudes! I think they should just have the Transformers be UFO's and then they can tie Transformers, Close Encounter of the 3rd Kind and, watch how I work this magic, and Indianna Jones!<p>At the end of Tranny3, the mysterious discs flying about but that absolutely no one has looked at as their very busy buying hamburgers and clearing bush and driving around n stuff. Those mysterious discs and the $600,000 concept car shock everyone by morphing into a giant alien mothership that is also hiding in plain sight in Wyoming at Devil's Tower. During this hiding in plain sight reveal, many humans climb down out of the giant mysterious lighted thing in the sky (what the hell is that thing anyway? it's round but it's obviously not a frisbee or a circular throw rug) as it transforms into a giant robot that lets out some people...we see a profile at first...that Fedora we all know and love. The curled whip at the hip. And as he walks forward, the light clears and it's Harrison Ford smiling at a beaming Shia LeBeouf as they each say "Dad!" or "Son!" and start playing catch or gin rummy or parchessi.

    DAMN YOU MICHAEL BAY?

    by caseymcgehee72

    I find it funny how so many of you talkbackers are in this bubble where you all do your circle jerk of Michael Bay hate... I don't get it... what do you want from the guy? you know what you're going to get in all his movies... you want this guy to make Oscar nominated movies? His movies do well at the box office which makes you guys and your superiority complexes think that the average moviegoer is an idiot... if a michael bay movie is two hours of your life you want back, it would seem to me that all the hours and hours spent bitching about him on these talkbacks is even worse... I find the movies entertaining.<br><br>And don't any of you dare tell me that Bay has destroyed the source material--it was a fuckin kids show--get over it. I can understand the arugment that McG destroyed his source material, but not michael bay.

    my thoughts

    by oneblood

    really don't matter one iota, but the problem wth the second one (one of the problems) was that the cgi guys were working on effects shots before there was a script (due to the writers' strike) At least that was the word being kicked around the picket line and other places back then. My groans for this one so far are directed towards the use of an attack at a Nascar race that spils out onto the streets as one of big acton sequences. It's just another bit of flashy product placement. But if it means the number 48 Stunticon kills it's driver, I won't complain. I just think the incluson of actual Nascar drivers and announcers will take the audience out of the film and it runs the risk of being Cannonballed.

  • July 12, 2010, 1:32 p.m. CST

    stoned mom

    by caseymcgehee72

    that said, I will come out and say that I COULD NOT FUCKING BELIEVE that they put in that scene in Transformers 2 where the mom gets stoned. It is baffling to me for a few reasons:<br><br>1. If the movie is intended for kids, kids don't understand pot...<br><br>2. If it was supposed to appeal to the stoner crowd, it failed miserably because the stoner crowd knows damn well how pot doesn't make you do that.<br><br>3. It's incredible how they considered the scene "comedy" I mean, it was obviously in their for comic relief, but who would understand it and find it funny? kids? no. stoners? no. non-stoneers who know stoners? no. Parents? no. Transformer fans? no, I'd hope... <br><br>The fact that nobody stepped in and said 'you know, this pot scene is pointless and unfunny'... its baffling, truly baffling.

Although that's probably a moot point because a guy who finds it necessary to attack someone and be overtly vulgar about it, you probably don't love your parents because they clearly didn't do a very good job.

    Who expects Freddy Got Fingered with robots

    by Nerd Rage

    when walking into a sci-fi adaptation about a covert civil war between living robots from a mechanical planet who battle for Earth's energy resources for galactic supremacy? Get a director who doesn't openly despise the source material next time. If you can make a respectable franchise from a pirate theme park ride why can't you do the same for a cartoon/comic series with intergalactic cybernetic-alien war for energy? Why does it have to be reduced to Freddy Got Fingered with robots?

Hell yes, there was issues with ROTF but leave it to the boards of AICN to take it to the next level. "What was with Sam seeing the Primes?" or complaints about dogs humping, which the latter can go or stay. But CTFD folks, I thought the Matrix carried the essence of all the Primes sorta like the series? Ask a valid question such as: "did Optimus destroy the Matrix again when he took out the Energon harvester?" That would suck after Sam took a near-fatal blast to save both that damn thing and Optimus

    by Karimkai

    Just as there are dozens of versions of Optimus Prime, not to mention renditions of TF animated, this is another one based off TF yet not a direct adaptation. Just as Batman '89, X-men and Spider-Man, they aren't 100 adaptations. the orig TF had alot things wrong with it, still awesome though. The Autobots/decepticons a million years ago on Cybertron already looking like present day vehicles? Sure they transformed to space crafts but the robot form looks exactly the same. They made since out of that by creating "protoforms". Megatron sometimes transformed to his gun mode and it was drawn at human size gun, sometimes just small enough to fit in Starscream's hand. Now that was far-fetched. Let's not forget how inconsistent the size of the dinobots were displayed. Yes, ROTF had too much crude humor, but it did the Cybertronians in a more practical way because face it, there's so much that would not translate correctly.

    Peter Cullen did the voice from only one Transformer cartoon. That's right, G1. Sam Witwicky is also from G1. As are most the autobot vehicles and the most powerful decepticons. The Fallen is also from the G1 universe. Bumblebee is Sam's sidekick in G1 as well. If you think the movies ignore G1 you're fooling yourself. They changed the looks for the worse but for the most part it's based on G1. Here's hoping the reboot is made for the G1 purist like the successful videogame War for Cybertron.

    A good Transformers movie needs only 3 things

    by tehBIGIvan

    Giant robots, explosions, and just enough plot to care why there are giant robots and explosions. The first two movies definitely had robots and explosions, but the plots were incoherent and filled idiotic sequences and characters that I could not care less about. Please, do not read hate in my words, as I do not hate the transformers movies. I am just overwhelmingly disappointed in them. I will remain hopeful that the people who work in hollywood will see their mistakes and that they strive to actually fix them. However, most comments I've seen, seem to suggest that they are merely changing the color of the paint to a darker tone, but an outhouse painted with a woman riding a unicorn, wielding excalibur, jumping over a flaming Boba Fett punching Batman in the nards, is still just an outhouse.

    by Pawprint

    Jesus Christ... Do I really need to explain?<p> Shia's character finds his mother embarrassing (as shown in the first film), and part of his character arc in the second film is that he is breaking away and standing on his own without parents or any autobots - he wants a normal life. The stoned mother scene is there to enforce his reasons for leaving home - she embarrasses him again and he gets off to a bad start at college. Similarly, Bumblebee turning up at college reinforces why he refuses to help Optimus. <p> At the end of the film he realises that despite their faults, his parents love him and he them, and that he is tied to the Autobots and may never lead a 'normal' life. We see him come to terms with it.<p> It's not rocket science.<p> Whether or not you found it funny, well that's a subjective matter. Me? I'm not so pretentious that I consider myself above a little giggle at a 'stoned mother' joke in a popcorn film.

    crossover with G.I Joe

    by Bouncy X

    there sorta already is one, apparently the Capt. Lennox character comes from the Joe universe. now i dont know if thats the original cartoon or the comics or maybe simply just a toy with the same name but that was brought up when the first movie came out. but Paramount has both franchises so i wonder if they'd ever try it.

    by Sweepthleg

    Seriously, people are trying to defend TF2... That was the most plot hole riddle piece of trash ever! It made the first one look like "The Godfather" in comparison to story, pacing, and general coherence. Bay himself realized that the second was a piece of shit by his back of the short bus standards that's why they are promising a much more Robot center movie for the 3rd one (not that anyone with a brain would believe them). The only reason both these piecse of trash made ANY money is because they have the name "Transformers" attached to them without that they would have both tanked at the box office.

    NASCAR screws Transformers

    by AGNT009

    I think its pretty cool, being a NASCAR fan and all. Im assuming they got some footage of the Chicagoland race there? One problem, these tricked out stock cars are showing a wing on the back, and thats wrong, anything they would have shot from the race the past weekend would have had spoilers. Im assuming the Transformers stop by the track for whatever reason, scan a few stock cars, get into a high speed chase, and realize the 800 hp cars arent fast enough, so they stretch their muscles a bit to get more speed. Thats my only explanation for what we are seeing.

I mean, this is the guy who made movies where you can go from Havana to Guantamaco in a short 5 minutes car drive (while presenting Cuba as a drug lord haven) and one can go by land from Egypt to Jordania without going through Israel (hell he even presented a Egypt-Jordania border checkpoint!!).

I know I shouldn’t go see his movies because all they do is piss me off. I know going in I will be sitting there for over two and a half hours and I will be able to predict everything. It is like plugging in a formula for a math equation written by a drunk seven year old with rickets and dementia. Every single Bay movie is the same… It is too long, it has random sidekicks that drop funny lines, there is always a slow motion stare at my friend hoping they don’t die shot (hand holding may or may not happen), then typical slow motion action sequence done over and over and over and over and over again.

Get a life you sick fucks. Bay may make bad movies but there are plenty of people in the world who deserve the torture and pain you wish upon this guy. Here is a solution....train wreck theory not withstanding...DONT SEE HIS MOVIES if you hate him that much, dont watch them for free, just dont watch them....but then if you did that you would have no one to direct your twisted hatred at.<P>It's one thing to hate a director, it's another to wish harm upon any other person, especially when it isn't deserved. If you think Bay deserves to die or wish death upon him, then you have serious problems and should be in a fucking mental institution. Now go out and kill some bunny rabbits because they looked at you funny.

    Mickey Bay is the type of cunt who thinks the only good cars that exists are Ferraris, and he doesn't even chose the right ferraris. The fucker has not owned any other car since his teens, when he was given one. Hell, his film school short was about him and his ferrari. You can see what kind of a person he is right there. He's the type of cunt who always had the big toys right from early age, got spoiled, and he still is the same spoiled bat, making this hugely expensive movies and he takes all that for granted. He never had to work his way up, like Lucas, Coppola, Spielberg, De Palma, Nolan, Raimi, etc. no, he started big, and got even bigger, and then bitches if his movies have budgets lower then 150 million and advertizement budgets lower then 100 million. He's insane! He's an ungrateful spoiled brat cunt who hasn't a clue.

That's just Bay's own publicists making shit up. and evne Bay himself admited that THE ISLAND was the worst performing movie of his career, a veritable flop.

    Bullshit, Armnageddon's final budget was 210 millions, and it barely did more at the box office. Disney classified it as a disapointment, below expectations. Which was why, when Bay made his next movie and DEMANDED a 200 million dollars budget for PEARL HARBOR, Disney told him to go fuck himself and work with 125 millions or get out.

  • July 13, 2010, 8:07 a.m. CST

    And in the 90s Holylwood only counted domestic box office

    by AsimovLives

    to classify a movie as sucess or flop. Because the foreing numbers were always unreliable, and more the n half of those would remain the their countries of origin, and they owuld only receive less then half. And in USA, back then, the distributors got half the box office cash. This is why ARMAGEDDON underperformed to expectations. ARMAGEDDON was an embaracement for Disney, after all their boasting they had in their hands the new Titanic. Then they got another pie in the face when PEARL HARBOR was not another TITANIC either. So, stop taking the Mickey Bay's publicist bullshit as gospel.

What kind of demented psychotic fuck would shot those scenes like that? Even the propaganda film made by the Japanese during the war about the Pearl Harbor attack showed more restrain!

I wish him huge commercial flops. I wish that form now foward all of Bay movies flop very hard at the box offic,e both local and foreing. That would hit him where it hurts the most. I wish that he has a string of HEAVEN'S GATE like flops, one after the other, in direct sucession, for a whole decade. I want that his movies all have 200 million dollars budgets or more and they can't recout even 1/4th of the investment. I want every single of his movies from now fowards to flop as hard as THE ISLAND or worst. I want his career of making big budget movies stop. I want him to became a persona non grata and a box office poison in the minds of all the people who pull the strings in Hollywood. I want him to spend the rest of his natural life making very cheap DTV movies, of which he's a natural, and music videos for has-been washed out terminal cokehead 80s hair metal rockers.

    I don't even think that Bay's movie appeals to the masses. His advertizement does appeal, and that's it, which is why he always have such massive opening weekends. Also, you have to be careful to what you mean by masses. Thr Bay's movie masses are the iliterate bible-belt rednecks. This is not idle put-down, this is fact, Bay himself says he makes movies deliberatly made in mind for the middle bible-belt america. He says he was inspired by something his grandfather once told him, that you never lose money if you pamper and sale for the Midwest America. I'm not american and i feel insulted by the implication.

    by rogueleader66

    May have fallen off the wagon in terms of quality, but he is still better than Bay. Bay could have never made a film like Face Off, that was a poetic ballet of bullets, whereas Bay would have just blown up everything. It was also two actors having a great time acting like each other, Bay would have just had them running around yelling...."ARCHER!!!!!!"......."TROY!!!!!!!!!!"

    There's nothing to criticise if an actor wants to dom some blockbusters. That's wher ethe pay is, and an actor in such a movie, even in supporting roles, he can get a year or two worth of pay. The thing is, one should be a more descernible about the blockbuster to chose, specially if you play the closest thing to a lead, ad Cusack was in 2012. Cusack should had tried to get jobs like DeCaprio's for INCEPTION or SHUTTER ISLAND, not fucking 2012!! Cusack has a name to mantain, he used to be the reliable star with integrity, the one you knew he made efforts to be in good movies. He was like the traffic lights.

Never was much of a 'Transfan", but I enjoyed the comics,cartoon and especially the Animated Movie back in the 80's.(which the game pays plenty of tribute to.)<p>If you are still unsure about purchasing the game,feel free to rent via Gamefly or buy used from Amazon.<p>Multiplayer is also one of the game's strong points.One might catch me fragging a few 'bots.

    Could not have said it better, Cusack needs to be way more picky, and he can be, it's not like he is some d list actor...he may not be considered A list, but to me is is A list as far as ability is concerned, and he needs to stop being lazy when choosing his projects. When a movie is so bad that not even he can elevate it a little, there is definitely a problem.

    I never had much interest in Transformers

    by AsimovLives

    I don't even remember if the show was aired here in Portugal. Sometime sthe toys were sold in stores, but that wa sjust it, some toys that could turn into cars but there was no big media hollahop associated with it, movies, TV cartoons, comics, the lot. Thus, i never had much an interest to Transformers. Saying that, i can't help but feel great sympathy for those who felt insulted and cheatted with Bay's movies. You Transformer's fans have my full sympathies. Think i know what you feel, because can extrapolate from what i felt when Bay fucked up SF twice with ARMAGEDDON and THE ISLAND. Those two movies could had been a great chance at good smart SF, given their subjec,t and instead they became two of the worst bullshit SF ever made in film.

    Did they at least aired Robotech/Macross in Portugal?

    by Stalkeye

    Asi,Not only was Macross the original "Transformers" (Mecha that transformed into Jets,etc.)but had more character depth and engaging stories than the TF series. For a syndicated cartoon, it was more in the adult camp than the venerable 30 minute toy commercials that were GIJoe and TF.As for Woo, Iv'e yet to see Red Cliff even though it's on my Netflix Queue, unfortunately I bypassed the film the minute The Girl With The dragon Tattoo was available. Great suspense foreign film BTW.

    In europe, the Acura NSX is known as the Honda NSX. Because, like, it's actually an honda car made by Honda. It's in north America that the car was sold as an Acura.

The S2000 was sweet too. Didn't they only stop making them in the last year or two? That was a pretty long run for a Honda. And yea, I know the Acura badge only exists in North America.
