Transformers 3 details revealed

in Apolitical by

Director Michael Bay and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently did an interview with USA Today in which they explain what went wrong with Transformers: Revenger of the Fallen, and in the process revealed a few little nuggets of information regarding Transformers 3.

Here are some of the major points from the article.

  • They are hoping give the next film a major upgrade. Apparently they have a more coherent story, less goofball humor and the characters that die, will stay dead.
  • The villain in Transformers 3 will be Shockwave the robot cyclops-turned-laser-cannon, who became dictator of their home world of Cybertron after the other Autobots and Decepticons journeyed to Earth.
  • Plot details are thin, but it delves into the space race between the U.S.S.R. and the USA, suggesting there was a hidden Transformers role in it all that remains one of the planet’s most dangerous secrets. “The movie is more of a mystery,” Bay says. “It ties in what we know as history growing up as kids with what really happened.”
  • They then confirm that the movie will in fact be in 3 freakin’ D.
  • Bay admits that he could do better and says, “This one really builds to a final crescendo. It’s not three multiple endings.”
  • The new film features Sam Witwicky (LaBeouf) taking his first tenuous steps into adulthood while remaining a reluctant human ally of Optimus Prime. “Shia has this great line: ‘You know, I’ve saved the world twice, but I can’t get a job,’
  • This third Transformer will be the end of the trilogy. This is it, the last one. Bay says, “As a trilogy, it really ends. It could be rebooted again, but I think it has a really killer ending.”
