Viacom18 Acquires License From Paramount For The Transformers 3 Indian Subcontinent Release
Posted by News Fetcher on May 18 '11 at 10:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Some countries only get a Transformers movie quite a while after the theatrical release around the world. (This writer’s home country; Sri Lanka got Revenge of the Fallen full month behind the worldwide release).

Here’s a news that will please Indian, Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi Transformers Movie Fans.

After a tip I received from one of my closest friends, both of us decided to investigate why our theater is advertising a 1st of July release date for Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

As it turns out, Popular Indian media corporation; Viacom18 has acquired license from Paramount Pictures International to release the movie to the people of above stated countries (India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh) around the same time as the rest of the world.

Transformers 3 is the first project to be carried out in this manner followed by J.J. Abrams' Super 8 and later with Mission Impossible 4.

One of our local newspapers published Haresh Chawla, CEO of Viacom18 stating “Viacom18 Motion Pictures has built up a very strong presence in the movie business in a short span of time and this strategic alliance with a global major like Paramount Pictures will open up myriad possibilities that will help us further strengthen our presence in this space".

What can we say to those who worked really hard to bring the movie to the countries as quickly as possible? Thank You, Thank You, Very Much!

(Update: While I was typing this article, a quick word from the Sri Lankan theater; Liberty Cinema explains that the Sri Lankan release has been pushed back to July 8. We waited for two years... one week is A-OK!)

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Officially Rated PG-13
Posted by News Fetcher on May 18 '11 at 05:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
As you may have heard (or pretty much expected) Transformers: Dark of the Moon has been rated. And it’s PG-13.

MPAA is describing the rating as follows…

“Intense prolonged sequences of sci-fi action violence, mayhem and destruction, and for language, some sexuality and innuendo.”

Trailbreaker of S4TE who kindly provided me with an insight of this rating states that this rating is very similar to the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides rating.

“Intense prolonged sequences of sci-fi action violence, mayhem and destruction” refers to the Robot Duels, Baysplosions, Decimated Chicago and the Human Death that takes place throughout the movie.

"Language" may refer to the use of swear words in the movie. "Some sexuality and innuendo" may or may not refer to any jokes relating to the subject matter. This portion of the rating may direct towards the scenes with Model/Actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley where… hem hem… AICN describes as “who doesn't need an occasion to dress in the tightest clothes imaginable”. As for “innuendo”… well, Michael Bay once stated, are toned-down jokes rather than what we saw on Revenge of the Fallen.

Transformers 2007 Behind-The-FX Featurettes
Posted by News Fetcher on May 18 '11 at 03:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Everybody’s counting down the days leading to Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The most spectacular thing about the movie series is the visual effects, namely the CGI Cybertronians.

Industrial Light and Magic of George Lucas and Michael Bay’s own Digital Domain help create the visual spectacles with their talented artists.

ILM recently uploaded two behind-the-scenes videos (nope, not Transformers 3… from the first movie) to let us know of the hard work they are doing.

If this writer may quote a portion from the article posted at Collider

“...The scene in question involves Megatron and Optimus Prime flying through a building mid-battle. To achieve the effect, ILM constructed a 1/4 size model of the building that took up an entire sound stage. As a result, the falling debris has a far more realistic and tactile quality than would ever be possible with digital effects. It’s nice to know that ILM still has a commitment to producing old timey model effects. While CGI might offer more fluidity and control than was ever possible with practical effects, there’s just something more believable about a physical effect. It’s always easier to buy something that clearly once existed in the real world rather than simply on a computer...”

Take a look at both videos by following the links below:

Dark of the Moon Human Alliance Tailpipe & Pinpointer In Package Image
Posted by News Fetcher on May 17 '11 at 10:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A small update for you now on the upcoming second assortment Dark of the Moon Human Alliance Basic Tailpipe. We've got a new in package picture of the guy, coming to you via the Transformers Collectors Club store. He's looking good, and this new image confirms that his Mini-con partner is going to be named Pinpointer. Pinpointer, for this wondering, is a callback to the Generation 1 Targetmaster partner to Crosshairs. The new version eschews Pinpointer's original colors, though, in favor of the more traditional Targetmaster black deco. Maybe he might get a recolor in red and gray later?

Official Transformers Gas Door Covers for 5th Gen Camaros (Bumblebee)
Posted by News Fetcher on May 17 '11 at 05:45 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
A set of new officially licensed Transformers products for the 2010-2011-2012 Camaro has hit the automotive stores just in time for Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon. This time it a set of aluminum billet locking gas doors featuring the Autobot Symbol or the Transformers Logo

While this is not super news on it's own, they are the first officially licensed Transformers items for the Camaro since the 2009 Transformers Package offered by GM. So Transformers branding on the Camaro is not done quite yet.

Will GM and Hasbro release a Bumblebee package for the upcoming ZL1, which has similar body styling to Transformers 3 Bumblebee already? Only time will tell!

2011 BotCon Guest Announcement - Arlene Banas
Posted by News Fetcher on May 17 '11 at 10:30 AM
By Deefuzz from TFW2005:
News out of the BotCon camp has revealed yet another guest to attend this year's convention in Pasadena. This time it is the voice of the Generation 1 Carly, Arlene Banas!

From the BotCon guest announcement posting:
ARLENE BANAS voiced Carly, who was the love interest of Spike Witwicky in the original G-1 Transformers series. In addition to Carly, she also voiced Allegra and Ynara on two additional episodes of the show.

This makes a total of 9 guests announced for this year's convention so far, 8 of which are G1 related, and 5 of which had some sort of involvement in the 1986 animated film which celebrates it's 25th anniversary this year.

Dark of the Moon Cyberverse Optimus Prime Redeco In Hand Images

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
ACToys.net has shared a small gallery of the upcoming Dark of the Moon Cyberverse Optimus Prime recolor. This recolored Optimus Prime draws inspiration from his Transformers Prime deco, and includes the twin buster guns and twin swords that Movie Optimus Prime uses heavily in his first two big screen outings. All in all, it is looking like this figure is great both as a redeco, and as accessories for the first Cyberverse Optimus Prime - by combining both sets of accessories, you will have the ultimate screen-accurate Movie Optimus Prime at pocket size.

The redeco Cyberverse Optimus Prime will be a part of the third assortment of Cyberverse Commanders alongside Decepticon Hatchet.
