Transformers 3, ILM Specials (Update 2)

Two Transformers related programs will be hitting the airwaves soon. The first is a rumored report about Transformers: The Dark of the Moon for Canada's Entertainment Tonight for Thursday October 28th at 7PM EST. I assume that means the US may have the same report around the same time but not really sure. No details on what the report could be about so could be anything from a set report to maybe a preview of a teaser trailer. Assuming rumor is true, will find out then.

The second related program comes from Encore Movie Channel which will air a documentary about Industrial Light & Magic on November 14th, 2010. ILM is responsible for most of the special effects used in the Transformers trilogy. Based on the press release, I think the behind the scenes stuff will be from Transformers 1 so mostly good for seeing how the robots were first created considering how that initial work has been used for the rest of the trilogy. It might be worth checking out, if you have the channel, if only to see how ILM continually pioneers much of the visual effects we enjoy in movies and television. Thanks to Winton for the link.

Update: ET Online has made it official with their own teaser trailer here. The footage is from the filming in Chicago so while I doubt it will provide any new information, it will probably show off some cool footage since they were invited onto the sets and close to the action. Thanks to Katie for the link.

Update 2: Found the YouTube version of the teaser clip.

  4. What usually follows in these things are a bunch of action scenes being shot, and non-spoiler interviews by the cast/crew.

    Hopefully concept art will also be shown on these specials, since it's too early to CGI-render the robots. Then we can get a clear idea of what/who's going down...
