ComingSoon.net has confirmation from a variety of sources confirming the official title for the sequel to Transformers.
Here it is….
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Anyone else notice how studios shy away from sticking to numbers in the title….I guess it doesn’t always work, but I think in some cases it works…others it doesn’t. Spiderman 2 is the most obvious choice….that movie wouldn’t be the same if it had a subtitle.
Still…this sounds cool, and I’m still finding it hard to believe that in just about a year a sequel to Transformers will already be hitting the big screen…..
You know, as I go over some posts from a few months back when they first starting releasing the flurry of Transformers pictures, I remember thinking that Optimus Prime would look weird with lips. They had that horrible looking “test shot”, and the “not-Peter Cullen” voice going on.
Having seen the film a couple of times, I have to say it really ended up working really well with the facial features on the robots. It was done in an incredibly realistic way, and not once did I think to myself it would have looked better with Optimus’ face shield up instead. It’s so lifelike and well-done by the animators at ILM, that I’m actually glad they did it the way they did.
It’s going to be interesting to see how, and if, they tweak it in the inevitable sequel….
I’m glad to see the returns for Transformers are turning out very well….near expectations for many of the predictions.
The one thing I’d like to have seen is what it would have pulled down if it had released on a Friday instead of a Tuesday (and even Monday night!).
For the 3-day weekend, Transformers racked up an estimated $67.6 million….Honestly, I would have liked to have seen it crack $70 million, but add that total to the $85 million or so it made up until Friday, and you’ve got some good numbers.
Also, the ratings are holding up surprisingly well. It still has a solid A- on the Yahoo! ratings, which is not a common feat. The last time I remember a movie pulling that off was X2: X-Men United….I’m sure there have been others, but off the top of my head I can’t think of any blockbusters that scored that high.

The final trailer is up for Transformers, and it’s a good one! I’m not really disappointed by the Optimus mouth anymore….
This movie looks great…I’ll be glad to rub it in how good it is to all the fanboys who are still mad about Michael Bay…..

Here’s a new TV spot for Transformers….Apparently a new trailer is on the way today as well…..
Head over here right now to see some awesome Transformers pictures.
These babies are hi-res looks at most of the Transformers in the film, and they look pretty cool if you ask me…..Now just need to see all of them in motion.
This movie is probably my most anticipated at the moment….right in front of Harry Potter…
Josh Duhamel was on The Ellen Degeneres Show yesterday and brought a clip with him. Still no big reveals, but it does give a good look at the helicopter transformation that we’ve already seen.
This movie is really ramping up…Hard to believe it is finally almost here!
