A Closer Look At The Revenge Of The Fallen Teaser Trailer | Shot Of Meteors In Clouds

A Closer Look At The Revenge Of The Fallen Teaser Trailer
Shot Of Meteors In Clouds
The first shot, and already we've got evidence that this movie has a much, much bigger budget and scope than the original. There, the action took place entirely in America, and the Transformers didn't show up until about halfway through. Here, they're up front, with this mini-sequence showing the arrival of evil Decepticon reinforcements, recruited by the late Megatron's second-in-command Starscream, in Paris. Two meteors - or, to be more precise, Transformers in their protoform stage - come through the clouds. And, Michael Bay being Michael Bay, one of them ploughs right into a building (we should at least congratulate him on his restraint in not pulverising the Eiffel Tower). This is, of course, the second time that Bay has trashed Paris - he destroyed it in Armageddon; and it's also the second time he's referred to that movie in the Transformers series.

2 The swearing in that article...
Posted on Sunday February 22, 2009, 18:11 by jackalcack
...was absolutely ridiculous and this is coming from someone who uses far too much profanity themselves. I don't wanna see that in supposedly professionally written editorial, especially since Empire is meant to be one of the most respected film authorities out there. That article came across like it was written by a teenager, desperately trying to sound cool by dropping f-bombs every other word. Really pathetic and embarrassing. Sort it out. Read More

Did anyone notice the ring on Megan Fox's left hand ring finger on the 12th slide? Does Sam propose? Is this a Brian Austin Green tribute? Does anyone really care? Read More

I originally noticed this when I watched the trailer, but this still has confirmed my thoughts - The wings on this Transformer seem to be reflected in the new Decepticon logo at the very end of the trailer....something to do with the 'Fallen'? Read More

10 Why not more autobots???
Posted on Wednesday February 18, 2009, 17:14 by YoungMovieStar
Empire shows that Jetfire and Arcee are in the movie - that's two new ones... so, why can't the transformers crashing into Egypt be Autobots? My thoughts on "overwhelming odds" are the fact that the Decepticons are bigger and badder (see Devastator) than the Autobots - overwhelming them with size and might as opposed to numbers. Whether Megatron is back or not is up to whether you believe Mr Bay or not, who stated that Prime's nemesis won't be in this movie. And the link to the new toys on a certain rival website may give one or two things away. I've counted 5 or 6 new autobots to add to the team. Anyhoo, I'm looking forward to this. One last thought. Could this be the death of Optimus Prime and the rise of Hot Rod A.K.A. Rodimus Prime? Read More

11 poor editing
Posted on Wednesday February 18, 2009, 16:32 by jameshope80
The trailer is good and all- but what on earth is with the language Empire authorised to describe each of the 22 available frames. 2 or 3 "fucks," a couple of "shits," and an array of "bastards" (who are no doubt fucking shitting themselves.) Am I being a prude? Personally I don't think so. It's completely unnecessary. Perhaps the cool kids spunking their tightie-whities over transformers 2 think these sort of decriptions reflect their anticipation, but this is a popular site (reporting on an adaption of a cartoon of my youth) and one regularly visited by my kids, and I assume many others far from claissification as legal adults. Yes they could look at porn, and the world's going to hell, anyway, but this is "Empire." What the fuck, guys? I'll think twice before letting them on this site unattended again. Read More

12 Out manned and out gunned!!
Posted on Wednesday February 18, 2009, 15:56 by rockafella01
This will obviously be a kick arse, loud as hell, destroy all things kinda film and im sure it will be the nuts. Its just the Autobots look to me like they are going be seriously out manned based on the number of new Decepticons. The Autobots get a 'female' recriut which im guessing won't be the biggest 'bot' of them all and another who is an 'old man' and he used to be a bad guy anyway. Plus all of the Decepicons look tooled up to the nines! This is going to be a serious underdog film me thinks. Can't wait! Read More

It's a good thing to bring in other bots ( the Good and the Bad ); But why more of the bad guys than the good? I can understand with fewer good bots, the conflict always looks grim. With Davastator in the mix, why not the dinobots or optimus-supreme. If Megatron is to be re-formated and bought back to fight... The autobots would last no longer than a snowball in the damm desert. Being Optimus not only the leader, He's like the most powerful bot from cybertron. And what's with Jetfire on a cane and old aged? Jetfire was once a decepticon, But was frozen for eons, only to awaken to becoming a autobot... A autobot with strength, heavy power, and intelligents. F**k all the haters.... I got the middle ile 10th row 6th seat reserved........ C Ya at the Movies... Read More

Didn't Devastator (as a name) already crop up in the first movie as the tank that really should've been called Brawl? How are the Constructicons going to form him? He was killed! Read More

Posted on Tuesday February 17, 2009, 15:27 by Karl Crutchley
It is Starscream. You see him quite clearly in the similar clip in the Superbowl trailer. Looking forward to this, IMAX here I come! If Devastator is in it, don't the Autobots often using the Dinobots to bring him down? Or would that be making things a bit silly? I seem to remember in the viral campaign for the first film, when you logged into the Section Seven pages there was some footage of what was clearly a mechanical dinosaur stepping on a car. Which, actually now I think about it, was a bit silly. Talking of which, does anyone know if there is a viral marketing campaign for this one? Read More

Well, wow; colour me impressed, Empire. I clicked on this trailer breakdown fully expecting it to be riddled with mistakes, but lo and behold, you got every single detail and character name right; you even correctly identified Sideways, even though his name was only divulged today. Well done indeed! :) Read More

Concerning number 11, could the more serious development for Sam's parents be they get kidnapped forcing Sam to come out of the Autobot protection squad he undoubtedly has? That backdrop looks like it matches with the Eqypt suggestions. Whatever, I'm sold, dodgy cliched darker plot twists accepted! ;) Read More

L: conorm4 This trailer looks like we'll see where every bit of the budget was spent, but it doesn't look like it'll be as good as the first one. That film was really funny, this one looks like it could take itself too seriously. Its a Michael Bay film, we're just looking for entertainment here, but watching stuff blow up for 2 hours can bit a bit boring (how can i be saying this??). I just hope its as much fun as the first one.... sp; This film has Devastator in it and will hopefully eradicate a lot of the, frankly, bullshit humour contained in the first. Don't get me wrong - I am a fan of the original, but on repeated viewings the human side of things does tend to grate, massively.   I hope they fuck off the hacker from MI:3 and Teddy Brodis. Painful, absolutely painful. Read More
