Orci Comments on Hand, Marketing

Roberto Orci recently commented briefly on Shia's hand and promotional push for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Michael Bay said several weeks ago that Shia LaBeouf's hand would be incorporated into the movie's storyline and Orci has verified that it has been done. "Luckily nothing has to be reshot. Yes, we were on set last week to write it into the movie, not because it's absolutely necessary, but more because we want to make sure Shia's hand is protected for the remainder of the shoot..."

He also had commented that "Starting in November, you'll start seeing the MASSIVE [marketing] push..." for TF2. While Orci makes no mention whatsoever of trailer plans, a marketing push without a trailer just seems like a waste of time to me so I think this is just further verification that November is the launch month of the first teaser trailer.

Now that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been moved to a July 17th release (making it TF2 biggest competitor next year...again), it seems to be that leaves only two movies worth releasing the trailer with - Twilight (taking 11/21 spot vacated by Potter) and James Bond's Quantum of Solace (moved yesterday to 11/14).

  6. "What happened to the rumors of a teaser trailer being released with Eagle Eye?"

    Uh, they were rumors.

    Definitely will be attached to Bond as that is more the target audience.

    Hahaha.

    If it's anything like last year, TF2 will beat Hairy Pothead 6 handily...since HP films are getting crappier as the story gets 'darker'.
