Transformers 4 Plot Summary Inaccurate?

We bet most of you saw this coming a mile off - Paramount, via Bleeding Cool News, has stated that the Transformers 4 plot details that were posted earlier this week by the Michigan Film Board are "inaccurate". That's all they've said "information previously posted is inaccurate"; which doesn't necessarily debunk everything, but for now it would be wise to take the previous report with a healthy dose of skepticism.

With all the "rumors are not true" and "rumors were true", etc, etc., I just feel a little about this.

Oh FFS.

The only thing we know about this film to be true is that it'll be 'more of the same'. Nothing more. I just can't get myself excited for this film. I'll see it, and i'll leave the cinema at best, mildly entertained.
Hot Shot.

I've said this before, but I'll reiterate since it's been a while: If you want the movies to get better, stop supporting them. Nothing will change as long as they keep making an obscene amount of money.

okay so the plot is now about 4 alien robots who make fat jokes for 2 and a half hours? got it

Shouldn't that be 'Paramount Says Transformers 4 having a plot is "inaccurate"'

*runs*

Part of me doesn't believe this. I'd like to see their notification from Paramount, 'cause it's odd that Bleeding Cool updated before anyone like CNN or Yahoo.

Yikes. We all fail, when it comes to leaks consequently.
TFXProtector
I'm a little surprised that Paramount is the one coming forward to debunk this. I thought Bay and Kruger kept the script close to them at all times, under lock and key, being the only two in existence that knows what's going on until the very first leak?

I don't think you know what "plot" means.

I don't think anyone on TFW really knows what it means.

Here's a plot:

Good guys versus Bad Guys. The bad guys try to hurt everyone and the good guys try to stop them.

There. Even a four-year can understand the plot will be more of the same.

Just like how Megatron wasn't in ROTF, right?

I was just wondering how the "Michigan Film Office" had the synopsis to release in the first place. Why would Paramount have given them one when they haven't released one themselves?

Given the release's content and the situation, it looks to me like it was written based on that earlier "leaked" script, either written by some clueless marketing guy at Paramount or some clueless guy at the Michigan Film Office. Either way, it certainly wouldn't have come from Bay, the producers, or Paramount execs, and really, before filming has even started, those are the only people who really know what the movie's going to be on that scale.

So, yeah, internet rumors strike again.

'Cause, you know what? Marky Mark is a race car drive. And guess what? His car is a Transformer. That'll be important.

I could see them giving a basic summary as part of their application to film on the locations. If you're going to use a site to film, people might ask what you're going to film for image/PR reasons. Even then, they'd probably be under NDA to not talk about that.


At the end of the day, the "leaked" summary only really contained one bit that could not be in the film - "evil" humans messing with Cybertronian tech. A new evil attacking Earth and the Autobots coming to help are a given.
Scorpio
Honestly disappointed... if the new plot summary was correct it would have enticed me with the whole 'businessman and scientists' who are using Cybertronian weapons. Now I get the feeling it might just be a generic 'ancient evil' plot. At least the previous plot had 'businessman and scientists' who messed up before the 'ancient evil' was unleashed.
VaderPrime1
I would honestly trade a possible Unicron for the humans developing new tech. I don't trust Hollywood with Unicron, especially live action.

Ah the lovely fun of claim every leak is false. Although for squishing things it's still not a fun as Hasbro leaking Megatron in the second film.

Perhaps Paramount is upset there is rumor going around that there is a plot instead of just randomly blowing up crap and killing Decepticons for two and half hours? Other than a small handful of fans I can't think of anyone that buys a ticket for the plot of these repetitive films.

I do, thanks. My comment was tongue-in-cheek about how the films are viewed generally (which I guess wasn't as obvious as I thought it would be).
jackgaughan
That's a shame, I quite liked the idea.

With the track record of news being leaked, claimed to be true, claimed to false, turns out differently in the movie, et al, I'd say that the only way to confirm what'll actually happen in the movie is by watching it when it comes out.

You could just drop in on the boards as soon as the film hits since people cover every detail of the films as soon as it's released. I'll likely rent the movie but I should know every last detail long before it hits Netflix or Red Box.

So... business as usual then?

Indeed.

Anyway, surely TF4 would actually be a 'threequel'? If a 'quel' is the number of movies after the first one.

Movie #1, a sequel, a 'twoquel' and then TF4 a 'threequel'. A 'fourquel' would be a fourth sequel, which TF4 isn't.

Not that 'twoquel' or 'threequel' are any better.

TF4 should just be referred to as 'Trilogy+1'. I have no love for that 'quadrilogy' nonsense

Well, a third movie is commonly called a threequel, so it would indeed be a fourquel, although that word does sound kinda weird lol

Well, that's what I'm getting at. Waiting until the movie is released, essentially, instead of clinging to every. single. bit. of news that shows up and will basically be shrouded by doubt.

Oh, I don't know about that... I watched all three of the other movies and I'm still not sure exactly what happened.

So... actually accurate?

As humanity picks up the pieces, following the conclusion of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet. However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control – all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs.

Well, when TF5 comes along, we'll all go through the same thing all over again. At this point, it would be great if we knew who had real scoops, who was just posting misdirection, and who were actually just making shit up so we know who to believe the next time around.
