Shia: "Targeting Humans" in TF3

Shia LaBeouf continues his promotion of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps at the Cannes Film Festival. While there, asked him about Transformers 3.
“When I saw the second movie, I wasn't impressed with what we did," he said. "There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone... we got lost. We tried to get bigger. Mike [director Michael Bay] went so big that it became too big, and I think you lost the anchor of the movie."

He added: “You lost a bit of the relationships. Unless you have those relationships, then the movie doesn't matter. Then it’s just a bunch of robots fighting each other.”

Of Transformers 3, he added: “There's going to be a lot of death, human death” as “this time they're targeting humans”.
It almost sounds like the Transformers war may add a new front to the battle.


  1. "Then it's just a bunch of robots fighting each other"

    That's what we paid to see

    "a lot of human death" , omg Shia made me so curious!
    TF3 will be war!

  3. Ooh goody! Maybe Mikaela will die! :D

    I'm getting more optimistic about the film with every report! :D

  4. ^^^she better not....

  5. Well, we had a lot of Humans dying already in the second Movie, which was also in the Trailer, remember the Carrier, that the Decepticons took down.
    On a larger scale, the Decepticons talked like they could destroy a city, this could lead to a Destruction of a bigger scale(maybe an A-Bomb-scale?).
    I'm also wondering wether or not we're getting a bigger Bot than Devastator in the Sequel.

  6. Superion and Bruticus combiners should be in Transformers3 as hints go with the earlier "leaked" "fake" script.
    I hope that they added a giant Decepticon city... it would be better than introducing Unicron if a city like Chicago or Moscow turned out to be a giant hidden Decepticon and it would transform in the movie causing massive deaths and a real nightmare worldwide... such a monster would be able to quickly destroy countries worldwide..

  7. lol anon at 3:20 that would be the dumbest and the farthest from reality it could be...nobody would believe a whole city would be a robot lol u must be young such a wild imagination which is a good thing you should be a inventor..

  8. @Anonymous 5/16/2010 3:20 AM: You are the really ignorant and childish one here. Your attacks against me are kinda pathetic and silly.
    1) You obviously don't have a clue about what the Transformers franchise is about
    2) Do you know that Unicron is a semi-God planet-size robot able to transform,uh? And so for you a giant Decepticon town would be unrealistic?
    3) Stating that no one would believe a Decepticon city it's such a silly statement... it's Transformers, it's a sci-fi movie... that kind of character is part of the franchise and mythology seen on original comics and anime series thru the years... People would be amazed to see what ILM CGI could achieve for such a huge monster, more realistic than anything else. Also... Devastator as well all other Transformers people shouldn't believe if it was for you.. movies would have bombed if anything you said was true. Fortunately there are many people worldwide that respect and enjoy the franchise and can see how much realistic the CGI by ILM really is with giant metal aliens that really look alive on screen.

  9. Hmmmm... this worries me.

    I thought the humans factored TOO much into the second movie.

    I think what we REALLY need are more Transformers. But -- and this is the key -- we need more Transformers in well-written scenes and not merely in action parts of the movie. We need to care more about the robots because of how they are portrayed.

    I thought the robots AND the humans were wasted in part II. We do need the heart back though. The first film had a lot of that, and that's why I think it succeeded. Part II really dropped the ball. Hard.

    Shia's right, though, about it getting too big. I always thought that Devastator was a good metaphor for the movie as a whole -- big, loud, dumb and an enormously wasted opportunity.

  10. What they need to do is make a three hour movie with giant fights and a good story...

  11. Transformers 2 didn't drop the ball at all. Its glitches and issues are caused by missing scenes that due to writers strike and production issues couldn't be completed on time for the theatrical release but that they probably even filmed.
    The pace on the novel it's way better thanks to many short scenes that we didn't see on the movie but are well described there.
    But despite its flaws Transformers 2 is still a very good movie, the fact is that without its issues it could have been absolutely perfect and if it had those missing scenes it would have been near perfect because the novel that is what the novel is.
    And actually Transformers 2 does have too many robots with not enough robots/humans interaction and that's the whole point. But the novel does feature a lot more interaction thanks to those short scenes that the movie is lacking.
    Let's hope a Director's Cut/Extended edition of Transformers2 will be released sooner than later with the CGI on missing scenes completed and those reintegrated back in the movie as they were supposed to be.

    @anon 5/16/2010 8:23PM:
    A Decepticoncity will never happen, it's too big. Bay said they won't go that big again, and I agree, I'd rather see Superion, Bruticus and a better(walking) Devastator instead of Trypticon or Metroplex.

  13. People dying? Sounds like panic and fear. Who thrives on panic and fear you may ask?

    ASTROTRAIN!!! Get him in there!

  14. so if they have people dieing and blood might be really graphic because shia saying we want it to be the "BEST" action movie and after that that gave me a feeling what if it was a rated R movie that would SUCK cause kids would wanna watch and problably some heard about this and some didnt
