    Default Transformers details *spoilers*



    via: Sci-Fi Wire:



    SCI FI Wire got a rare peek at the production of director Michael Bay’s upcoming Transformers movie in downtown Los Angeles on Aug. 26, including the first up-close look at the disguised versions of four key Autobots: the chartreuse search-and-rescue vehicle Ratchet, the giant black GMC 4x4 Ironhide, the sleek silver Pontiac Solstice sports car that is Jazz and the muscle-y yellow-and-black Chevy Camaro that is the new Bumblebee—so new that the car in the movie is a prototype for a vehicle that hasn’t even gone into production yet. Ironhide had an Autobot logo on his tailgate; Ratchet featured a fire department seal on its doors with the same logo in the design.



    In interviews with cast and crew, SCI FI Wire also got a preview of the film and learned a few key spoilers:



    •The film will offer background about the origin of the war between the Autobots and Decepticons. The plot will be set in motion when 18-year-old Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) discovers his grandfather’s pair of century-old glasses, improbably laser-etched with a map and information about the location of a key artifact, the “Energon” cube, which he then tries to sell on eBay. The movie will follow five separate storylines, which will all converge with a final battle between the Autobots and Decepticons, starting at Hoover Dam and ending in an American city that looks a lot like Los Angeles.



    •The film is seeking permission to be the first production to film the exterior of the Pentagon since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001; the movie will also shoot in various cities, including L.A., Chicago, Detroit and Washington.



    •The film will feature a top-secret military unit called Sector 7.



    •Voice casting of the Transformer robots is being left until later in the production, except for Peter Cullen, who was previously named to reprise his role as Optimus Prime. In particular, producers wouldn’t say whether Frank Welker, who voiced Megatron in the 1986 animated Transformers film, would voice the character in the movie.



    •The movie will use a mix of computer animation and large-scale puppetry to depict the giant robots. Megatron will appear as a plane, not a giant gun, as he did in early versions of the franchise.



    •The film’s first full trailer will appear sometime during the holiday season this year.



    Overall, director Bay told SCI FI Wire that the movie strives for realism, despite its cartoony origins. “I only wanted to do Transformers if I could do it realistic,” Bay said in an interview. “And from what I’ve seen and what we’ve done with our digital studies, putting it in real-world stuff, that is lots of effects around that are real effects, that’s how we make it realistic.” When Bay got the first call from producer Steven Spielberg, he said, “My first thought was, ‘Nah, I’m not interested.’ And just because I thought, ‘OK, how am I going to do a toy movie?’ And then I realized, when I went to Hasbro, ‘OK, start over and go for [a] realistic alien-invasion-robot movie on Earth.’ And so, with that thinking in mind, that’s how I went about it.”



    On a hot Saturday, Bay and his crew shot a scene on a blocked-off street in the heart of downtown L.A. The scene featured the four Autobots, accompanied by military crews led by co-stars Tyrese Gibson and Josh Duhamel, and young stars LaBeouf and Megan Fox, who plays Mikaela, LaBeouf’s love interest. In the scene, the commandoes see what they believe to be Air Force jets flying overhead, then realize that the coming flying machines are something else—Decepticons in disguise?—and throw smoke grenades to obscure their positions as dozens of civilians run screaming around them. Ironhide, the black truck in the lead of the column of Autobots, appears to collide with a delivery truck carrying Furbys (the talking furry animal toys that are also made by Transformers maker Hasbro). The truck is on a gimbal, which allows it to swing up and stand perpendicular to the street, as if knocked on its end. The idea is that the Furbys will be knocked from the truck, in flames, then activate when the Energon cube flies overhead. “We just wanted to have burning Furbys on the ground, you know?” Bay said with a laugh. “We’re going to be blowing up a lot of little Furbys.” Transformers is currently in production, with an eye to a July 4, 2007, release.

    It is impossible for any severed individual to experience pain
    Pleasure, memory, dream or thought of any kind
    This young man will be as unfeeling as unthinking as the dead
    Until the day joins them

    I don't know weather I'm alive or dreaming or dead or remembering
    How can you tell what's a dream and what's real
    When you can't even tell when your awake and when your asleep
    Where am I?
