Paramount/DreamWorks has just given us an exclusive image from director Michael Bay’s upcoming blockbuster “Transformers Revenge of the Fallen”. As you can see, it shows Optimus either getting ready to battle someone with sword in hand, or he’s just defeated someone. Either way, it looks awesome.
But I’m biased. I thought the first “Transformers” movie was incredible, and I think Michael Bay was born to helm these movies. Mo matter what you think of the guy, he knows how to film action. And what better franchise is there than giant f*cking robots punching each other.
While this summer has been filled with great movies, the end of June brings up “Transformers Revenge of the Fallen”. And I can’t wait.
And one last thing, while movie studios have been embracing the online world with more and more viral campaigns, I think “Revenge of the Fallen” is going to be the first one that uses the movie to help promote the campaign. If you saw the recent trailer, the back of Shia’s shirt has a website url on it and it’s for an actual site – therealeffingdeal.com
On top of that one, gianteffingrobots.com has also launched and according to movieviral.com, the site is run by Jon Turturro’s character in the movie. While I usually don’t care about viral stuff, I think the angle they’re taking with this one is kind of cool. If you’re into viral campaigns, you might want to take a look.
