Something Wicked for TF5

No idea of what to make of a new tweet with video on the official TF5 account. What do you think? It shows some State Department document or something with the sate slashed through as it fritzes out with maybe another image underneath. The beeps turns out to be morse code and translates to "I'm Coming For You May 31st". Since filming just started but pre-production has been underway for months so the announcement could range from a kind of teaser trailer with images of planned Transformers for the film to a simply story synopsis with cast details.

Josh Duhamel Talks Joining Transformers 5

In two new interviews, Transformers: The Last Knight actor Josh Duhamel comments on joining the cast. With the AP (video below thanks to Feris O.) he comments on how his experience on a Michael Bay set makes a difference. Over at the the actor has signed on as spokesperson for GMC's Building for America's Bravest armed services charity.
Mr. Duhamel was stationed to film his scenes 70 miles outside of Los Angeles in El Mirage, California. “I had never been there and it’s a trip,” he said of the far flung locale. “It’s this giant, flat lakebed with 40 MPH winds that didn’t stop all day, but Michael [Bay]’s set is unlike any other set. He has all of the gadgets and the coolest stuff, and the energy of that set is just really – well, it’s a spectacle, and it’s really changed my career. It’s helped me to pursue other little creative things. I love the big Transformer movies, but I also love these passion projects.”

Filming is going to shift to Detroit around June 6.

Optimus Prime Trailer Spotted in Detroit

Thanks to J1000 we have this image of the Optimus Prime Dark of the Moon trailer on the Michigan Motion Picture Studio lot on Tuesday. It is currently missing its Autobot logo in the front but that could change. Based on yesterday's picture of Prime (and that he is flew off to space) some visual changes have been made to the character so the trailer may not necessarily be used in the film (for instance it could be used for promotional or merchandise images) but its the first solid sign that Transformers 5 production has arrived in Detroit for its mid-June start date.
