    They are already doing this. They started with Age of Extinction and now they have worked on this idea, building the Writers Room for that purpose. Do you realize how much we haven't still seen about this movie?

    You can't quantify that - you don't know how much we haven't seen.

    Frankly, I think they've done a Phantom Menace here and put the majority of the action bits in some form or another in the trailers, leaving all the boring shit 'hidden' for the film.

    Obviously. You think they are going to market a Transformers movie with people just standing and talking?

    You've been here a while and this is the fifth movie. Please say you are being this naive on purpose?

    If they had half a thought of getting away with it? Yes.

    Tell me, at what point is money exchanged when people see movies?

    The answer is before they even enter the screening room. The trailers exist purely to draw people in to see the film. At that point, what profit is to be made from the films per person for the showing has already been made.

    I brought up Phantom Menace for a reason, because that was a Star Wars film that did exactly what you are accusing me of being 'naive' of ever happening.

    No way. I'm not much of a betting person but I would absolutely bet on you being wrong. We've seen mere glimpses of these scenes and there is no way they are just going to have 3 second action scenes.

    Maybe the next movie that's not a spinoff will see that happen. We've heard about the Bee prequel, the Cybertron prequel, and the Rome prequel, but still nothing of the sequel.

    The whole point of quoting the Roman storyline beat is to show that even if the writers are getting TFs off planet in dribs and drabs, they're obviously not committing to getting them away from Earth for the long haul.

    Also, as I just stated, it's frustrating that even this little bit of off planet action has taken this long to get to, and I personally have no interest in waiting out another 5 years for it to finally become the focus of the movieverse.

    Alien robot world building is notoriously thin in these movies, and since they're still not mining the human-robot comparisons for anything remotely thoughtful, getting the TFs into a larger, galactic environment seems the only way of squeezing anything smarter out of this series.

    I get what you're saying, but I just don't feel like this will happen. Not with Hasbro and Paramount at the table.

    TPM was all of George's own doing. It was almost like he was trying to kill what he created.

    Maybe, but I don't have much faith. I'd be happy to be wrong though.

    Hasbro and Paramount are exactly why I think it will happen. Their track performance thus far has not been good in recent history.

    Exhibit A: Jem and the Holograms, a.k.a. the biggest high-budget box office flop in decades.

    We shall see. I think Transformers is a different beast altogether.

    They are working on it. It is said in the interview.

    As opposed to saying what? The interview is as much promotion as a commercial spot. They're not going to say the movie is garbage.

    Why the movie should be gardbage? You can't use the previous movies as a proof.
    And I was talking about Transformers 6.

    You're missing my point.

    My point is that they're not going to say anything less than praise for their efforts in something like this. But just because they say shit is improving doesn't mean it actually is.

    It's like believing M. Night Shamalayan when he said that The Last Airbender was a good film he made.

    @Lord Ultron @tonyformer @eagc7 @Shizuka
    Clearly Optimus was referring to his group of autobots from TF1/TF3 (Ratchet, Ironhide and Bee etc.).
    And when Optimus says "Since the years from our arrival" that, to the average moviegoer means since the events from TF1. The other quote "earth our new home" is also vague because they've been on earth longer than 10 years.

    Now that we know they've been involved in human conflicts/wars throughout human history, "years" is an understatement.

    Not every person that watches these movies are spending the time trying to connect the dots with these stories. They will just judge the story for themselves and start to see some inconsistencies.

    Is the cybetron prequel film actually animated or do they mean cgi animation?

    Surely CGI animated, the only way to enhance the design of the robots.

    I'm assuming Pixar/TF Prime-ish style.
