Official Transformers 2 Story Synopsis?

Latino Review has posted what could finally be the official story synopsis for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The synopsis is from the May/June 2009 issue of Creative Screenwriting where they interviewed Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Sounds legit too as it supports pretty much everything we think we know about the movie. Thanks to The Chief for the link.
When the story begins, the Autobots and the military have been waging a secret war against the Decpticons. As more of the giant robots continue to resurface, though, it becomes apparent the Transformers have been part of Earth's history for longer than they'd led mankind to believe. One group of bureaucrats even womders if the Decepticons are only appearing because of the Autobot presence. Desperate not to leave Earth undefended, Optimus Prime turns to Sam and asks him to become a human advocate, someone who will convince mankind that the Autobots should be allowed to saty. Sam refuses to believe he can help, though, wanting to go to college and live a normal life - as normal as possible with the strange thoughts and visions that have haunted him since being exposed to the All Spark's primal energies two years earlier. Alas, Sam's refusal will have harsh consequences for himself, the Autobots and possibly the entire world. The Decepticons fallen leader, Megatron has been resurrected and brings with him an ancient evil from the Transformers own history.

"All great sequels have an incredibly frightening bad guy," says Kurtzman, amending their earlier list of traits, "who challenges your hero in a way that is unique," They found such a character in the comic-book Transformers mythology, a primordial creature known only as The Fallen. "He was one of the first Transformers. He was Lucifer. He was the fallen angel. And it just felt like a great place to come from."

  2. Live the dream Sam! Don't be a wuss! Maybe somebody should give him a doll to play with at college.

  3. I kind of figured this one would center around Sam and The Fallen. The Fallen seems to have some kind of mind control over Sam in the trailer. Should be awesome.

    As in, the prehistoric times? Like "Dino, droppings, droppings?"

  5. The Fallen is supposed to be the Transformers version of Lucifer? Ha! Sorry but I can think of somebody 1000 times more frightening and apocalyptic than The Fallen. Perhaps a certain planet devouring giant of planetary proportions. The Fallen is much more like Judas Iscariot. ;)

  6. ^^^^No, Not as in prehistoric times^^^^
    More like in ancient Egyptian times the pyramids were built on top of the sun harvester.

  7. Totally off topic, but I just realized that doing the scene were the twins and BB are following sam inside some ruins that that is not in Egypt, its in Jordan. And that explains that painting that the twins were standing in front of, A painting like that would never have been in Egypt. Did any of you guys ever here anything about why the movie would have a part in Jordan? Every time I think I kinda have this movie remotely figured out something new pops up. Hmmmmm, interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  8. jordan, egypt, hawaii, wherever, is just a gimmick to place a plot item.
    don't think its particularly important.

  9. Dino droppings? Did Jeff Goldblum visit us?

    Hurry up 6/24! All of these debates need to end! We need debates over what is in the movie versus what we think is in it!!!

    What I meant by that was that since we see desert we think Egypt, but if the twins were in Jordan were there is also desert, maybe everybody still doesnt make it to Egypt. We know the twins do, but everybody else who we thought might have been there could have just been in another place with a desert, like Jordan. Point is some bots still not be in the final battle, Maybe Optimus, Maybe BB, maybe some desepticons. Just saying.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Alright..now I must say that I'm eager to watch it. Just that I wanna say that the Decepticons will be more badass in this movie. They will dominate in this sequel!

    ReplyDelete
  12. hmmm, probably just grab the novelization when it comes out in...a week and a bit now, just to find out what the hell is going to happen. I am just too darn excited to wait for the movie alone.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I managed to spot a copy of the Transformers revenge of the fallen film to book Novel but some little kid grabbed it before i could. I hated that. Final copy aswell. Guess i will have to wait :)

    The synopsis sounds promising hopefully the jokes dont overlay the plot this time.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I wonder if GB Blackrock will appear...the story sounds very much like it was from his time in the comics.

    And seeing as Soundwave is in this movie...Energon Cubes anyone?

    Only the US government circa 2000-2008 would be dumb enough to think that giant, powerful ultraviolent, genocidal robots would leave Earth alone if only the giant robots capable of defeating them and saving the planet would just leave.

    it has alot of nifty things in it including a countdown to when the toyline is released

    i hope im not the last one to find this out again
    but if im the first...yays

  18. If you read that synopsys you are not a true fan. Who wants to know every little thing that's gonna happen? That's wack!

    I'll see it when it drops.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I read it and I gurantee I'm not any less of a fan then I was before...

    There has got to be some Autobots that we haven't heard or seen from yet... I still don't see how they're going to take out devastator...

    Yes the Decepticons are going to be awesome in this movie.. In the trailer Megatron is in Egypt and he's looking at Sam about to shoot at him and there is somebody standing behind him and I don't know who it is right before he shoots at Sam someone blast the crap out of him but just look behind him and see if you can tell who it is....

    When you start cussing and gettin personal on this blog you're going against site rules.. If you people keep it up then something is gonna change. If you can't get on the blog and keep it mature then don't get on ...

  21. Interestingly they are releasing the film on the 24th of June, which is the Actual summer Solstice. When the sun is at it's highest in the northern hemisphere. and before some jackass says solstice is the 21st of June, can I point out that the Gregorian Calendar says it is then because it falls on that date often. This year it is the 24th.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Willbilly...

    that is not megatron. it looks like megatron but it's not. there are no tank treds on the feet watch closely and the head is a little different too. plus can't tell the bot behind him...btw he is not the one who shoots him.

    ReplyDelete
  23. essex this whole blog is about getting spoilers. so i guess you aren't a true fan.

    anyway the synopsis doesn't say anything we don't already know. if you were shocked megatron was still alive, i'm sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Bilal... Yeah I get what you're saying man. I don't see any treds and his head is different it looks like whoever it is may have a battle mask also.. To me they both look like Megatron but you really don't see any treds on their legs.... I don't know it's just confusing b/c you can see rust on the one bot leaning next to the pillar esp. on his leg. No way it's Blackout.....

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's not that serious. You think I don't want to read it. Of course your all true fans, that is why you are here.
    Don't take me so literally, Anyone who comes here is a good fan. but you can't front on your internal struggle to not know as well.

  26. ^^^^
    You know you can watch every episode online ;)

    Either on Youtube or by finding the episode name on Wikipedia then searching "Watch (Episode name) online" on Google. Most of the time it is legal to :)

    P.s. True fans would be the creators we are only normal fans :(

    ReplyDelete
  29. now that i think about it i hope megs has a jet mode and thus a triple changer.it kinda looks as though he has jets on hisback when hes resurfaceing from the water.

    (russell peters rocks)
    Indeed

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow, where do I begin? I can see you all are fighting already this morning. Is it really necessary that we get into the racism?

    Essex: The devil's in the details. That synopsis is a really broad generalization of part of the story. I don't think we're really learning anything that we don't already know from past interviews and character bios.

    Bilal & Willybilly: I think that the consensus from a discussion a couple days ago was that those two bots were probably protoforms. The one on the left can also be seen in the shot of Sam and Mikaela running from the yellow Constructicon across the rooftops.

    Even though Jordan and Egypt are close on a map of the world, they're still like 1000 miles apart. It's not like they're just around the block from each other.

    I think that those shots we saw a few months back that were in the ruins are in Jordan and they show a bot that hasn't been revealed yet. Here's one of the pics:

    There's a distinct head on the right side of the pic that looks nothing like anyone that we've seen. Thoughts?

    IGN has a trailer walkthrough. you can tell they really don't know what's going on. so basically its like scorpio doing a synopsis.

    you won't learn anything new but its fun to watch and get aggravated at their knowledge.

  37. The plot for the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen novel by Alan Dean Foster is up now

    http://www.amazon.com/Transformers-Revenge-Alan-Dean-Foster/dp/0345515935/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1241629172&sr=8-1

    Book Summary:
    “THE FALLEN SHALL RISE AGAIN. . . .”

    This cryptic warning is ignored by the national security adviser who feels the ruthless Decepticon threat is no more. The allies are victorious, the enemy has been defeated, and the world is safe. Small attacks around the world have been contained, and the remaining pieces of the coveted Allspark are locked in an electromagnetic vault on one of the most secure Naval bases in the world. But nothing is at it seems, and there is a shift in the shadows. Things can change in an instant–and fragile peace will become all-out war.

    Bumblebee
    Skids & Mudflap
    Jolt
    Wheelie

    I wouldnt have been bothered if it was just one or two because the twins do look like good characters but its just too much considering there arent alot of serious looking autobots. IMO they should have made more cars
    look like sideswipe or jazz and less that are towards bumblebees design. Any one else agree or am I just talking horse shit.

    This is how tall blackout and starscream should have be compared to optimus prime, not the same height. Starscream is a bit iffy but Blackout should be atleast that height.

    I know some people are gonna say that it would look wierd if blackout was a lot taller but they made demolisher the correct height, why not everyone else.

    Ratchet and Ironhide are a too big in that pic though, maybe a few feet shorter

    ReplyDelete
  45. ^^^^^

    I`m not sure whether it was the novel or the coloring book but they had a shelf with a stack of these and they were almost gone and as i got to the shelf this kid ran up and grabbed it. The cover had an image of the fallen and i read the words "Transformers revenge of the fallen official" and then he ran off with it and they had none left. It was on free comic book day. They had a poster for ROTF as well however it was just the logo.

    Apparently though the novels offical release is 2 days after the films original release date :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. was it a picture of the fallen himself or was it a picture of his face we have seen already

    ReplyDelete
  47. Just the face. A pretty lame cover even if it is only for the novel. Although i guess they didnt want to give anything away by having a new charecter on the front.

    ReplyDelete
  48. the kid grabbed the comic.

    the novel comes out on the 19th of this month.

    and Anon@1:40

    the budget is not $302 million that website says. The budget was $200 million and they came in $4 million short at $196 million. their info is incorrect.

  53. Fine I'm sorry I post old news I seriously don't mean to and I have had times where I post the right things. and FYI I do read the blog *sighs frusterated* I'm just trying to help so if I'm not a help whatever I try and yet I do read the blog but you have no idea what I have to work with so I'm sorry if I post something already done. I don't realize it at the time. There's no reason for you to have cow. There I've spoken my piece I won't even read your response.

    *sighs* Anyways looks really good the plot definitly is getting more exciting I can't wait for the new movie!

    ReplyDelete
  54. like i thought, no real alt mode for ravage, just his "rocket" form when he is shot out to earth.

    from the bio, not sure he has much to do with megatron's revival so much as maybe finding out where he is in the first place.

  61. for those who want grimlock in the film, if he was in it as a dinosawr it be retarded, "robots in disguise", yea no one is going to think a giant metal t-rex is outta ordinary, and fer those who are gonna respond with grammar and vocabulary bs, dont bother, it just shows your lack of validation in the argument, so lick ma butt.

    the only way grimlock would work is if he was a large armored vehicle perhaps and acted like grimlock, but not as a god damn dinosawr xD

    ahahaha thats not what that means, its gonna be a trilogy, why would they kill off the lead role and his love interest in the 2nd film!? XD

    all it means is sams gonna be in danger(and not have the "normal" life he wants for god knows why, i would love to have a transforming chimaro), the worlds gonna be in danger, and bla bla bla.

  66. Um... Anyways, back to topic...

    To Anon 11:43

    I think it has become (even in the G1 and later cartoons and comics) that the transforming into alt modes for disguise was no longer needed. Everyone knew of the transformers (especially in the animated movie) so the need to transform was mainly for transportation.

    So if everyone knew of the Transformers, then a giant transforming metal dinosaur wouldn't be to far out there. "Robots in disguise" just wasn't the main reason for transforming anymore.

  71. I think that megatron wants something with sams mind and starscream is BADass as usual because the decepticons have WAYYYYYYYYY more power than the autobots cause they didnt recruit that much starscream did a good job while playing with the all spark info in frenzy's mind and the fallen is kickass and devestator as much of a work if youve seen the movie and trailer. the movie is badass long live starsream.
