Transformers II : Revenge of the Fallen

Last year we saw the live adaptation of one of the famous 1980s classic cartoon, Transformers. With it being directed by the capable hands of Michael Bay and comprising of an ok-cast, the movie was a success, along with the ever-welcome Peter Cullen reprising his role as Optimus Prime's voice.

Now, for those of who you are clamoring for a sequel, (just like I did), rejoice fellow friends! Transformers 2 is in the making, with the shooting beginning last May 2008.

If you don't like spoilers, there's still time to discontinue reading; but if you're a die-hard Transformers fan, just continue below.

The plot: Sam Whitwicky (Shia LeBouf) has entered college, & due to some reason has become super-smart, to the point of telling his professor that there are errors in a textbook after finishing the book in 5 seconds.
There is mention of 'The Splinter', which may be a fragment of the All Spark that got
embedded into him during the 1st movie, resulting in his overnight smartypants attitude.

Also, the movie will focus on Sam's (possibly strained) relationship with Mikaela(Megan
Fox), who has failed to get into college.

The robots: Among those listed that will return;

    • Optimus Prime
    • Bumblebee
    • Ironhide
    • Ratchet
    • Starscream
    • Barricade
The new ones;
    • Soundwave (Decepticon, hurray!)
    • Jetfire (Decepticon)
    • Arcee (Autobot)
The movie is set to be released on June 26th, 2009. There are might be a few changes as the movie is still in its early production stage, so we might get to see the Dinobots or the Constructicons (keeping fingers crossed here), and there's a reason why the sequel is named as such, as a main character from the first film may be resurrected.

Which character? Go figure.
