SuperHeroHype is reporting that Paramount Pictures will be re-releasing Michael Bay’s Transformers in IMAX theatres with additional footage. The report doesn’t say how much additional footage or what exactly will be shown, but this is great news as far as I’m concerned.
Count me in the number who stood up and cheered TRANSFORMERS when it came to the big screen. Yes, Optimus had flames, and moving lips, but the truth is in the cartoon, he was one of only a handful whose mouths were never shown. So to see his mouth move on the big screen didn’t bother me too much.
If I were to nitpickthe movie, it would be that I didn’t like some of the voices of the other characters, in particuliar, Ironhide. I don’t know why they gave him a British accent. He’s supposed to have a good ole’ southern drawl. Oh well.
While as a Transformers fan from waaaay back, I see the issues other transfans had with the movie, I still loved it. So, when I hear that there is going to be more footage…and the film is going to be shown in IMAX…well, I giggle…I giggle like a fat girl left alone in a room of Twinkies.
By the way, you can read some of my oldest blogs ever at The Transformers Network. Just look for the articles by Bighonkin…that’s me.
Anywho, I’ll post more on this story as I find out more. But, if you read it here, you can always rest assured that you “heard it here last.”
