Transformers One Official Trailer

After an hour flight to 125,000 feet above the Earth in space, the first trailer for Transformers One is out. The animated movie is set on Cybertron before the rise of Optimus Prime and Megatron, before the civil war that ravages the planet, and shows the friendship between the two had before becoming enemies. From looking at the trailer, it does appear this is set well before the events that lead to the TF civil war so seems they are building in room for potential sequels. 

The voice cast is Chris Hemsworth (Orion Pax), Brian Tyree Henry (D-16), Scarlett Johansson (Elita), Keegan-Michael Key (Bumbleebee), John Hamm (Sentinel Prime), and Laurence Fishburne (Alpha Trion). The movie hits theaters on September 20, 2024. The release date got bumped a week so can screen on IMAX screens.

Available now is the live stream page for the Transformers One trailer launch. The over all plan, subject to delays, is around 9am ET a rocket will be launched. It will take about an hour to reach its peak height at 125,000 feet above the Earth, which will result in the trailer being released with an introduction from Chris Hemsworth and Brian Tyree Henry.

CinemaCon Presentation Brings Transformers One Trailer, GI Joe Crossover News

This week is CinemaCon, an annual gathering of studio execs and theater owners where the next year plus of movie plans are presented. With it often comes news on possible movie plans for the next year to two year. This year at Paramount's presentation, they brought Chris Hemsworth (voice of Orion Pax) and Brian Tyree Henry (voice of D-16) along to speak about Transformers One that is set for release on September 13, 2024. 

The animated movie will present the origin story of the Transformers civil war when friends Orion Pax and D-16 became bitter enemies and leaders of their factions as Optimus Prime and Megatron. Scarlett Johansson (Elita-1) via pre-recorded video introduced Hemsworth. Other voice cast include Jon Hamm (Sentinel Prime), Laurence Fishburne (Alpha Trion), Keegan-Michael Key (Bumblebee), and Steve Buscemi. 

The key bit for fans is a trailer for the movie will drop on Thursday, April 18, no exact time specified but usually this tends to be in the morning eastern time. The official logo was also made available to the public via X/Twitter. As for what those at the presentation saw, it was a scene "in 3D as the guys seek refuge inside a train and tussle with Elita-1. The train speeds of and crashes through the surface. “It’s beautiful,” says Orion Pax who begs Elita to listen to what he has to say, “We know where the matrix of leadership is… We found a message… It will change all of our lives.” 

While not part of the Transformers One presentation, Paramount did reveal future movie plans. Part of that is confirmation that Transformers/G.I. Joe is part of their official plans. Keep in mind plans are subject to change, say due to a sell of the studio that is in the works. Per their contracts, the usual gaggle of producers (Steven Spielberg, Michael Bay, Don Murphy, etc.) will get their cut and pretend to be involved in production but Lorenzo di Bonavantura is driving this train. No writer or director has been announced. Thanks to Feris O. for the heads-up.
