Transformers Movie News

The Orlando Sentinel report that "A video by four Union Park Elementary fifth-graders has won the top prize in a contest sponsored by NASA and Hasbro, the makers of “Transformers” toys.

The students won first place in the elementary division of the the Optimus Prime contest for their YouTube video about clothing developed using NASA technology. Their video took the form of a newscast about the fabrics, which protect wearers from harmful ultraviolet rays. The contest goal was to help students understand how NASA technology ‘transforms’ into things used daily.

The four girls each received a 10-pound glass trophy with Optimus Prime etched inside and their name engraved on it, a NASA goody bag and clothing from the SPF company, which makes the UV-protective clothing they featured in their video."

Transformers Movie News

In an update on Michael Bay's message board, Nelson, the administrator, posted the following regarding the trailer release for Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Fast 5 ill be in theaters April 29.
The TF3 trailer will be available on Apple Trailers on 7PM (Eastern Time) on April 28th. 

This is because there was some confusion over a comment posted by Michael Bay where he said that the trailer will debut with Fast 5 next week, which is a week ahead of the US release of Fast 5 but is the release week of several international countries including the UK

Transformers Movie News

Entertainment Weekly.com has posted an article by Anthony Breznican that announced that Leonard Nimoy has joined the cast of Transformers Dark of the Moon and will voice Sentinel Prime.

"Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, has joined the film as the voice of Sentinel Prime, the predecessor of Optimus Prime whose wrecked body is seen in the teaser trailer, found crash-landed on the moon by the Apollo 11 astronauts in 1969. Later, after being brought to earth, he takes the disguise form of a fire engine in the movie’s massive, climactic battle through Chicago.

Apart from his obvious Star Trek cred, Nimoy also has a history with Hasbro’s shape-shifting alien robots: He was the voice of Galvatron in 1986?s TheTransformers: The Movie.

Transformers filmmaker Michael Bay had toyed with the idea of inviting him to play a voice in the second movie, Revenge of the Fallen, but wasn’t sure he could pay the veteran actor enough. “I was too scared to ask him,” the director says. “Plus, he’s married to Susan Bay, who’s a cousin of mine. So I had to be careful. I’ve met him at family functions. But he told me, ‘I would be honored. I’m glad to be back!’”"

We have received the following release and images ­Rogers & Cowan (Consumer, Entertainment & Sports)

­TRANSFORMERS DAYTONA 500 CAST – Grand Marshal Announcement

The stars of "TRANSFORMERS: Dark of the Moon"– Josh Duhamel, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and director Michael Bay – will serve as the Grand Marshals for 53rd running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011, airing at 12 p.m. ET on FOX.  As Grand Marshals, the TRANSFORMERS cast will deliver the four most famous words in motorsports – "Gentlemen, start your engines."

In addition, the modified NASCAR stock cars of drivers Jimmie Johnson, Juan Pablo Montoya, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. -- featured as characters in the film -- will make their first public appearance by leading the 43-car field during the pace laps of "The Great American Race," the kick-off event to the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.

The Daytona 500 will not be Bay or TRANSFORMERS’ first introduction to the NASCAR world.  In 2009, Bay piloted the official pace car at a NASCAR Sprint Cup race to promote the DVD release of "TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of the Fallen."  NASCAR drivers Jeff Gordon and Ryan Newman also took part, racing with branded images of opposing AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS on their cars and uniforms.  Bay credits his vision to include NASCAR stock cars in the new TRANSFORMERS film to this experience.

The new Paramount Pictures live-action movie from director Michael Bay, and executive producer Steven Spielberg, TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON picks up from the last movie with the DECEPTICONS vowing to avenge their defeat and ultimately results in mysterious ties to the 1960’s space race between the US and USSR.

AYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The stars of “TRANSFORMERS: Dark of the Moon”– Josh Duhamel, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and director Michael Bay – will serve as the Grand Marshals for 53rd running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011, airing at 12 p.m. ET on FOX. As Grand Marshals, the TRANSFORMERS cast will deliver the four most famous words in motorsports – “Gentlemen, start your engines.”

In addition, the modified NASCAR stock cars featured in the movie will make their first public appearance by leading the 43-car field during the pace laps of “The Great American Race,” the kick-off event to the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.

The Daytona 500 will not be Bay or TRANSFORMERS’ first introduction to the NASCAR world. In 2009, Bay piloted the official pace car at a NASCAR Sprint Cup race to promote the DVD release of “TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of the Fallen.” NASCAR drivers Jeff Gordon and Ryan Newman also took part, racing with branded images of opposing AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS on their cars and uniforms. Bay credits his vision to include NASCAR stock cars in the new TRANSFORMERS film to this experience.

“We’re honored to have the stars and director from this blockbuster film franchise “TRANSFORMERS: Dark of the Moon” serve as Grand Marshals of ‘The Great American Race,’” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “As an added bonus for our fans, three cars from the movie will be on location during Speedweeks and we all look forward to watching them lead the field for the 53rd running of the Daytona 500 on the newly paved racing surface.”

In the days leading up to the Daytona 500, race fans can view the TRANSFORMERS NASCAR stock cars at the Chevy Display located in the Midway outside Turn 4.

Tickets for Speedweeks 2011 events, including the 53rd annual Daytona 500, are available online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP.
