Agreed. I think Burton would do a war-ravaged Cybertron better than any director
I'm not sure if his style would translate well. In fact, I'd probably just extract Danny Elfman for the musical score and leave everything else. Burton just has a very particular style. A good style, but again, something that may not translate very well into the TF mythos.
HORRIBLE idea. I'm sorry. He is a terribly over rated director, ONLY good for movies that help sell shirts at hot topic.
optimus would look creepy as fuck
Nailed it. Burton personifies the law of diminishing returns.
So, I assume no one here has seen his Planet of the Apes remake, which had nothing that you described.
Closest thing I could find that resembles what a Tim Burton Optimus might look like.
Complexity of Bayformers, but the lanky, stylized look that his film characters/concepts tend to have.
True, PotA was a more "normal" film from Tim Burton, but it still had his Burton-touches. Plus, it had Helena Bonham Carter. That alone is enough to qualify it as 47% Burton-ized already.
I can't decide if it would be a good idea or not. Nightmare Before Christmas is my all-time favourite film, but then he's also been involved in some utter cack. He's pretty much a parody of himself now. Would the public take a TimFormers movie seriously?
Helena Bonham Carter would have to be the goth love interest because shes burtons women and has to be in EVERYTHING he does
I don't think I want Transformers to wear black leather and have scissors for hands.
Stolen from the TFP Inspirationals thread, but I'm sure the poster won't mind:
I could legitimately see him doing something pretty cool with a Hearts of Steel film.
As a fan of Tim Burtons art style and a fan of transformers seeing pictures of this would tickle my fancy..i could see megatron being really skeletal yep still looking powerful and optimus around the same but he would need his faceplate and always have smoke billowing from his smokestacks all the joints would looks like large bare gears with aged looking metal rods covered in armor for the limbs. the bodies for the leaders would be long as well as the limbs. ironhide as a hearse would be ok but i would rather burton would make a hearse and just call him grave digger. spike and sparkplugs names work and if spike was a scrawny kid(not really goth but alot of burtons humans look goth anyway) and he was the son of the towns head machinist. the town would be smallish somewhat away from the world and very industrial looking. spike would meet a damaged bumblebee(bumble bee would be small, and of a similar shape to spike, sorta scrawny due to lack of armor) and bring him to his father to see if he could help fix the young autobot. soundwave turns into a surveillance truck and is always with megatron(forgot to mention that megatrons mouth would look sorta like it just split and look like a jagged jack'o'lantern mouth) i also like the idea of the poe quoting lazerbeak, also a brooding ravage, and frenzy and rumble would just be kind of insane...i could see the cassettes being like some kind of dark comic relief. id go on but i think ill just try and draw a rough pic of what im trying to describe(it might not look alot like burtons stuff but oh well)
it would not be a movie i think just a short would be fun, or just some artwork
No, he met her on the set of that film, so it's not possible.
I would love that. I love Burton's work, always look foward to when a film of his comes out.
Spindly, steampunky TF designs. With weird hands. The TFs will probably be stop-motion constructs.
The entire movie would be shot in desaturated colours.
Danny Elfman would do the soundtrack.
Sam would be a Goth outcast. His name would very possibly be changed to Edward.
Mikaela would be more innocent ingenue than skanky ho.
There will be snowfalls.
Depp as Optimus - a younger Optimus, perhaps more in the vein of the TFA incarnation.
Helena Bonham Carter as a motherly but tough Elita-One or Arcee.
Lots of focus on the Autobots being terrifying to the populace at large despite being the heroes of the show.
Decepticons not evil for the sake of being evil - they would be revealed to be hurt, misunderstood creatures, with Megatron's initial rebellion spurred by daddy issues with whomever he and Optimus had for a mentor.
Goth spirals. Goth spirals everywhere.
I'd watch the hell out of this show.
let him do it as an animated movie and we will talk
with actual toys pleeeeeeeeeeeease-
