Everyone is caught up in the buzz for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen at the moment, thanks to that mind-blowingly awesome Super Bowl TV spot that Michael Bay whipped up. While the full teaser trailer won't arrive until Friday the 13th (meaning both the actual date as well as attached to that movie), we've got a huge batch of new behind-the-scenes photos from Transformers 2 thanks to both Latino Review and a guy who was cast as an extra in the movie. Along with these new photos comes some interesting spoilers, which I won't dare reveal here, but the actual photos are all pretty much entirely spoiler free!
So the story goes that a user on the LS2 Forums, who is apparently part of the military, was cast as an extra. He describes his entire experience, including the scenes that he shot. This is one of my favorite excerpts: "Micheal Bay loves the military. I got to speak with him very briefly. He gets so angry on set at the actors but doesn't dare yell or demean the military. It was a trip. He said something to me like do you want a job as a DA (Directors Assistant), I said hell yeah. He was getting pissed at his DA. His DA was like trust me you don't want this job." Check out the photos below and head over to Latino Review for more!
To put it simply - I can't freakin' wait for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen! I know these are just a bunch of cell phone shots of vehicles and tanks, but just seeing all of this gets me excited. I love Michael Bay's integration of the military, there is really nothing else than can compare to it in Hollywood. To be honest, I think it's that intergration that makes movies like this so entertaining and so successful in the end. That Super Bowl teaser already looked fantastic and I know there is just so much more to be revealed for this! We've only just begun to scratch the surface. Let's keep the hype going all the way until June!
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.
