ShoWest Transformers 2 Footage Description (Updated)

AICN's Quint was in Las Vegas when Michael Bay accepted the Vanguard Award. As part of that, a scene and action montage was shown. I think one part is going to make people cringe but "the action makes the first movie look like Driving Miss Daisy."
The full scene was Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox going into Sam’s parent’s garage to talk with Bumblebee, who is, apparently, still having trouble with his voicebox. He’s able to cough up a few staticy words, but still communicates mostly through pop songs (lame).

Shia tells Bumblebee that he’s going away to college and can’t bring him along. Freshmen aren’t allowed to have cars at his college, apparently, and Sam doesn’t need protection anymore anyway, he says.

As he talks with Bumblebee, Fox is outside… we see that the Witwicky house is being repaired… so I take it this isn’t too long after the first one or there was a bit of action that happened prior to this clip.

Anyway, Fox stips out of her black leather pants and jacket, revealing a dress… Prom? Something. But Megan Fox stripping is a-okay for whatever reason.

Back in the garage, Bumblebee isn’t taking the news well, dramatically crying (window-washer liquid) and waving his arms. This could have actually been fairly emotional. LaBeouf is playing the scene that way, but the robot is so over the top I don’t know if it was supposed to be a comic scene or not.

So, the scene wasn’t all that great, but the montage of action was fucking awesome, as I’m sure Bay would say. We get a look at the Devastator (massive and pretty sweet) knocking the hell out of Optimus. The shot is from far away and Optimus is fighting in a large, open grass field in bright daylight. He’s hit and sails through the air towards us, hitting the ground and rolling to a stop right at the camera. He sits up and spits out something metal (robot tooth?).

There were quick flashes of a lot of cool action. There was a Decepticon with giant saw blades that cuts a car in half, splitting up Shia and Fox. There was a shot of a decepticon bug being forced into Shia’s mouth… another shot was of a transformer fly that Shia has pinched between his fingers… and a lot of quick big action scenes… a transformer that is two giant wheels, ‘splosions, etc, etc.

Looks like more of the same so if you hated the first movie you probably won’t like this one much more, but I hear that the action makes the first movie look like DRIVING MISS DAISY… and that Bay learned a few lessons from the first, focusing on the robots more than the humans this time out. I hope so.
Update:Coming Soon has also posted a description of the footage.
Sam opens the garage door to see Bumblebee in robot form hitting himself in the head trying to get his voice back. Sam tells the robot that he wants to talk about college, to which Bumblebee starts playing The Pointer Sisters' "I'm So Excited" and dancing around, but Sam tells him that he's not going to which the robot gives a heavy groan. Sam gives him a long speech why it's best Bumblebee doesn't accompany him, while Mikaela runs outside and starts to disrobe (Yowza!)... no wait, she's just changing outfits. Bumblebee isn't happy and he starts spraying water from his head as if he was crying. Sam explains that he wants to go to college and experience it like a normal guy, but that Bumblebee will always be his first car, etc. As he finishes his sentimental speech, Sam turns and opens the garage door and Mikaela is standing there in what appears to be a wedding dress holding a purple bouquet of flowers.

After that dialogue scene, what followed was a two minute montage of some of the robot action from the movie giving glimpses of almost all the Autobots and Decepticons we'll be seeing as well as The Fallen, most of them on screen slightly longer than the footage seen before. To be honest, it was cut together so quickly that only a diehard mega-fan might be able to see it and name every robot or figure out exactly what was going on. Regardless, it looks like Bay has done it again and anyone who liked the first movie should be suitably impressed with the sequel.

  6. Wow This is really cool news!
    Only thing that confuses me is...why is devastator in a grass field ??

  7. I think it's The Fallen at the grass field... as from the trailer...

  8. ^ at the post above. cant you read what he said? " We get a look at the Devastator (massive and pretty sweet) knocking the hell out of Optimus. The shot is from far away and Optimus is fighting in a large, open grass field in bright daylight."

    its not the Fallen.

  9. Punch is right. The Fallen's make his only appreance in movie at Egypt and the entire Egypt is desert land. Understood?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I have made little thoughts about Transformers 3. The Fallen should die in this movie, because think about it. If Galvatron appears, why should Unicron have two trusted lieutenants? When the Fallen is dead, Unicron might make Galvatron as his new first lieutenant.

  11. -Punch is right. The Fallen's make his only appreance in movie at Egypt and the entire Egypt is desert land. Understood?-
    Except the oasis and the small town but thats about it. Sorry it does seem that Devastator makes an appearance at some sort of field. However he is confirmed to appear at the pyramids. Maybe prime dies :o

    Then again The Fallen could survive along with Megatron and then Megatron could lead the decepticon army. While The Fallen and Unicron make plans to destroy Cybertron and The Earth.

  12. And when will the rest of us see this.....?

  13. I'm sorry, Scorpio, I didn't think that NEST, the Autobots and the Decepticons might make an Alliance to destroy Unicron.

  15. Bay might have a passion for transformers, but he just isnt the right person for it. He can direct them, but as for last say for such things as robot designs and how the robots act, he is way off!

  16. Sounds pretty damn awsome to me...those clips will be leaked

  17. the whole catering to kids these days in hollywood is caused by something called greed. what will make the most money not caring one bit about a movie. the kids have their cartoon show... make the movie grown-up, like most of the fans.

  18. Man, even though he's getting knocked around, Optimus sounds bad ass! He gets thrown off and then just gets up and spits out a tooth, ready for more.
    Thanks for the post blog guy!

  19. I want to see TF3 rated R. TF's cursing & swearing. Think about it, they learned Earth's languages through the WWW.

  21. -I'm sorry, Scorpio, I didn't think that NEST, the Autobots and the Decepticons might make an Alliance to destroy Unicron.-

    I dont think i said that at least not recently. However i mean that The fallen would join Unicron and plot to destroy Cybertron and the earth while Megatron (Not knowing about Unicron) attacks the Autobots. Megatron joins Unicron so he isnt destroyed. The Fallen is killed by the Prime/Jetfire combo. Unicron goes to attack Cybertron however Megatron stops him after he levels most of the planet. He pursuades him to destroy the Earth first to get rid of the remaining autobots. The few Autbots on Cybertron come to earth and get ready. Unicron and Megatron arrive at earth where Megatron attacks Unicron. Knowing he will have help from the Autobots. The Decepticons and Autbots attack Unicron. The millitary are completely useless as a Nuclear strike backfires and Unicron starts devouring the world. The rest of the film could follow the original with them going inside Unicron however Bumblee bee has to Sacrifice himself thus saving the humans he has become friends with. P.s. In this version prime dies at
    the start of TF3!

    Only my ideas of course!

    TF2 Should be a 12A or 15
    TF3 Should be a 15 minimum!

    -any websites so a can watch yhe new trailer?tf2-
    Youtube.com or the Transformersmovie website. Also on Shootfortheedit.com!

  22. Just my thoughts:

    Good things:
    -A WHOLE LOT OF FREAKIN' ROBOT ACTION/VIOLENCE!!!! :D
    -Michael Bay learning a few lessons from the first film and concentrating on the robots.

    Bad things:
    -Bumblebee's comic performance in the garage (as it says above, this could've actually been an emotional experience...for Sam, Bumblebee and the audience. But, unfortunately, Bay plays it up for laughs.)

    I Don't Know- Things:
    I'm not sure how well I will like the whole "Optimus spits out a tooth" thing. It was funny in "The Incredible Hulk" because the Abomination actually had teeth. But, with a robotic organism, it's iffy. I'm hoping that the robots aren't used for too much comic relief in this film. The first film had some comedy, but this film is supposed to be darker. I'd still enjoy some comedic scenes obviously, but tone it down, especially when it comes to the Transformers themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  23. AWWWWWWW bumble is upset! I bet he secretly follows him anyway and pobaly somewhere in the early in the movie at the collage Wheelie joins the autobots and hangs out in Sam's room and sleeps in Sam's dresser! XD

    ReplyDelete
  24. He wont spit a tooth, but some metallic peice or part inside his mouth, which is totally understandable. To make a dark movie you also have to set up the audience by having sad/enjoyable/funny moments and then bring in the darkness, it hits home more when your having a goodtime/laughs/fun and then everything falls apart. Think about it people...

    If you watched closely in the first film especially with Prime and Megatron they both things resembling teeth in their mouths. Hell, with Megatron his sharp pointy teeth are plainly seen.

    ReplyDelete
  26. We are going to need a bad ass Autobot in the 3rd film. I think It should be Ultra Magnus. Maybe they can still get Robert Stack to do the voice. But he can't be a punk like in the animated movie. He gotta come in whoopin ass.

    ReplyDelete
  27. About the "Optimus spitting out his tooth" thing: Fair enough. I'm still not to pleased with Bumblebee acting like that. Bumblebee was the 'sweet n' innocent' robot of the first film, but in this film he should be more serious and bad @$$. That's fine if The Twins act like that, because it's pretty obvious that THEY are meant to be the comic relief for the most part.

    To Essex:

    Michael Bay: "Hey, Magnus! How's it hangin'? Listen, I've got a sweet deal for you. We're doing a third live-action "Transformers" film and I'd love it if you were in it!"

    Ultra Magnus: "I can't deal with that now!" ;)

  28. Essex, didn't you know that Robert Stack is dead?

  29. Anonymous: "Essex, didn't you know that Robert Stack is dead?"

    Tee hee...:)

    Maybe Patrick Stewart could voice Magnus? Or Christopher Lee?! :D

    I'd be alright with Bumblebee acting goofy as long as he acts awesome in some other scenes...maybe by killing Sideways!

    Magnus only died in the original in this new film series anything is possible. Besides all comics and previous things are canon (They dont mean anything)
    I think they could easily introduce Magnus as a bad ass transformer. All they need to do is have a motorway or street scene where Magnus transforms sending cars flying off him. Then fires a gun and takes down 3 Decepticons in a fast spin. Either that or introduce Counterpunch :) He is cool in both his side modes!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I agree with Anon 10:25 about there needing to be some lightheartedness in order for the heavy stuff to come across. If the twins are idiotic and comical in the first half, then when they become heroic at the end, it will be more dramatic. You gotta take the bad with the good.

    ReplyDelete
  32. They could easily choose another actor.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Replying to TheChief:

    We are okay with the twins as a new comical duo however we dont want Bumblee bee bieng such a idiot this time. He is the one the fans connect with. During the course of these films he should be growing stronger not acting like a baby when sam says he cant drive him to school :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I agree with you both, TheChief and Scorpio (I like your Magnus idea).

    I guess that if they are silly for the first part, their action, heroics, (and possible sacrifice?) will seem MORE heroic. (I'm kind of hoping one of the Twins gets destroyed by Devastator or Soundwave, and then the remaining twin can take revenge and take out (or attempt to) the Decepticon.

    Hope #1: Let's not have Optimus say things like "Oops" or especially "My bad." >:(

    Hope #2: For the film, it should be like 20% goofy, comical, silly Bumblebee, but then 80% hard core!! I'd rather not have the kid-appeal character being ONLY A KID-APPEAL CHARACTER!

    Hope #3: A tiny bit more steady camera shots.
    Thank you, Michael Bay! :)

    Hope #4: Towels at the theatre...for when my jaw hits the floor and I start to drool uncontrollably. (I'm getting that problem checked out by the doctor, though ;) )

  35. www.comingsoon.net has another description of the screening:

    "A little later, Michael Bay thrilled the packed ballroom with a scene from the Transformers sequel which involved Shia LaBeouf's Sam Witwicky, Megan Fox's Mikaela Banes and Bumblebee. Sam opens the garage door to see Bumblebee in robot form hitting himself in the head trying to get his voice back. Sam tells the robot that he wants to talk about college, to which Bumblebee starts playing The Pointer Sisters' "I'm So Excited" and dancing around, but Sam tells him that he's not going to which the robot gives a heavy groan. Sam gives him a long speech why it's best Bumblebee doesn't accompany him, while Mikaela runs outside and starts to disrobe (Yowza!)... no wait, she's just changing outfits. Bumblebee isn't happy and he starts spraying water from his head as if he was crying. Sam explains that he wants to go to college and experience it like a normal guy, but that Bumblebee will always be his first car, etc. As he finishes his sentimental speech, Sam turns and opens the garage door and Mikaela is standing there in what appears to be a wedding dress holding a purple bouquet of flowers.

  36. I'm suprised no one is talking about what is happening to Sam.

    That was the main thing that stuck out to me. Why is a decepticon bug being forced into his mouth? Is it like one those computer things the goes inside someone to control them or better yet gather information. What is this with the decepticons that involves Sam and insecticons?

    There is obviously something unique about Sam NOW since his encounter with the Allspark that makes him valuable enough of a commodity that the Decepticons would abduct him.

    I'd also see revenge for Megatron in the concept of taking Sam. But you see from what I have gathered about the decepticon leader he is a caculated being and wouldn't waste time on an organic unless it would be benificial to take interest in him.

    Sam is basically avoiding the war then he get's dragged in because of something to do with the splinter (allspark fragment). That's what stuck out to me and makes me really think.

    Though I have to agree with you guys if the Transformers aren't played seriously it would debunk things in my book. However I do think this only a little part there is so much more to this and from what I saw in that trailer and what we've gathered information I really think it will honestly go well. I don't think we should judge it until it comes out. Remember they have been very careful on keeping us away from the overall plot. My brain still goes in circles each time there is new information. This really looks like it will surpass it's predacessor.

    I can't wait for the movie I'm looking forward to it more and more.

  37. Still think it is crap that Bumble Bee ain't talking still... Rachet is a hack...

    ReplyDelete
  38. NO WAY the people in Vegas were shown Devastator!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think that Sam's going to college happens, because his parents wants him to stay away from the Autobots, because they say that destruction of their house is Bumblebee's fault though the Decepticons made most of damage. This resembles Transformers: Animated, where captain fanzone wanted Autobots to rebuild the city, because it's partly their fault.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Counterpunch4/03/2009 2:12 PM

    Essex - If you want bad-ass Autobot(s) look no further than Grimlock.( & his fellow Dinobots)

    Most powerful & most feared by the Decepticons & Grimlock is like the only Autobot who has told Prime to f-off. Thats what you call bad-ass.

    And its a no-brainer that the only Autobot units that can match Devastator strength to strength is them.

    Remember Prime's direct orders to the Dinobots in the 1986 cartoon movie.

    " Dinobots, DESTROY DEVASTATOR".

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Regarding Bumblebee: I think that there's room for him to be a little bit of a cut up. He's always been the one to play around a bit when he didn't need to be serious. But just thinking about his fight with Barricade in TF1, he definitely sacked up and kicked some ass. Just the shot of him walking away from the fallen 'Cade as he kind of dusted himself off showed a good shot of him knowing he can be the shit if he needs to be. If there's a bit of comedy starring Bumblebee, I won't be upset so much.

    ReplyDelete
  42. where can i see the video there talking about

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think that the 'tiny Insecticon' thing is an interesting take on them. As opposed to 12 foot robotic grasshoppers, that it. Yeah, they're probably meant to infiltrate Sam and record his movements or probe his brain or something.

    Megatron: "Let's play 'doctor', shall we?" (insert evil laugh)

    Ratchet needs to go back to medical school. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I wonder how big the parents garage is if BB can be inside in robot form?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Well, I'm guessing that Bumblebee is sitting on the ground, not standing. So, when he stands he is 16-17 feet tall, but sitting on his tuchus would decrease his height to maybe 8-9 feet. Still not much room, though. He could also be lieing on his stomach with his hands propping his head up, meaning that his full height is lenghtwise (like a car) while his head is a mere 5-6 feet. Interesting scenario, but I guess we'll have to wait and see what Bumblebee decides to do. ;)

    Plus, they have a big, fancy house. They probably have a big, fancy garage too.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Well we have lost another charecter. Bay said in an iterview on TFW2005.com that (Spoiler) Arcee will be killed off in the film.

    Please admin make a topic about this!


    P.s. This is bay so it might be part of a misinformation campaign

    ReplyDelete
  47. Thats weird because I found something a while back that said that Arcee would definitely survive the film. They said no promises for everyone else though.

    ReplyDelete
  48. What a sexist jerk! To kill off the only female!(Kidding)

    There are so many 'ifs' with this. It's Michael Bay, so it could be misinformation. I don't mind her being killed off IF there are other female characters in the film. (Especially Chromia, who has a relationship with Ironhide that I would like to see develop). That would suck IF she got killed off early, and 'the film moved on from there'.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I just noticed this: Bay seems to kill off the single character that adds diversity to the robotic cast! Jazz (african-american) and Arcee (female)!

    I smell conspiracy!!! >:O

    Guess we'll have to wait to be sure, though! :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Anon @ 1:41 PM

    Why would Sam say he doesn't need protection to BB if the Deceps tore up the house. The renovations are from when the ABots were hanging around waiting for the glasses. Sam goes to college and the folks go to Paris----then the $HIT hits the fan----did you even see the first film? The drones appear while Sam is on the run and ends up back at his house.

    Do your research my friend!!!

  51. Ultra Magnus!

    His character should be upset that Optimus is the leader of the Autobots, because back on Cybertron Ultra was the former head of the science department but Megatron and the other senators wanted Optimus, cause of his knowlegde of the artifacts. (this can be retooled)
    I just made this up! :\

    ReplyDelete
  52. To 5:36 PM the answer: I just didn't think about that Sam's going to college happens right after that scene on Shanghai. But if angry parents are not the reason that Sam wants to live normal life, then what is? And besides, what Sam will do when his parents will be angry for him about destruction of their house?

  55. Devastator WAS NOT the one delivering that blow to Optimus in the field. It was Megatron. Come on; they're clearly of similar size to each other, it looks like Megatron and he even has Starscream and (from the looks of it) Blackout with him.
    Plus, there's even a brief shot that shows Optimus punching Megatron in the face at what looks to be the same location.

    Devastator isn't meant to appear until Egypt.

    I don't know how the guy could have missed all that.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Spoiler Alert!!!! You Guys may think Devastator/Megatron Are the strongest and are totally going to dominate this film but you got it all wrong The Fallen is the strongest,In fact Hes so strong that the Autobots And Decipticons are going to join forces to defeat him,,"Spoiler" If you look closely at Both Trailer 2 and showest footage you can spot the fallen in the desert clip/Not the one with Devastator lol... Watch if you would notice him, hes the one who comes from the sky and lands like a lighting bolt and if your wondering why he lands like that "Spoiler" is because that's his power he can move faster then the speed of light I'm serious thats his advantage and if your wondering how do i know this Lets just say i know someone in the cast...:}...Ps; The Fallen was one of the original 13 transformers created by Prime,No Not Optimus prime lol The fallen betrayed Prime and joined forces with Primes evil twin Brother Unicron Aka The Planet Eater... But then Unicron got defeated and was lost in another demention and so was the fallen.. so thats why The Fallen is called The Fallen because after that his real name was lost.... But Thats not all as you know tha fallen escaped his prison and so did unicron but unicron Vanished.... The fallen now wants revenge on who put him in his prison and who ever gets in his way will be destroyed... Also The Fallen is the one who Split apart the 2 functions and made them into Autobots and decipticons So Hes like the God father sort of speak..OOO and i forgot on the showest footage They show you his face and hes Very Very Disturbing lol ... And if you dont believe me thier's nothing i can say but just wait and see when the film comes Out On 6.24.09 :}
