Question about Movie Credits

Postby OhioBot » Wed Mar 14, 2007 1:52 pm

Will Peter Cullen get his name credited at the front of the movie along with Josh Duhamel and the others or will he be in the end credits like the original voice actors did during the 1986 animated movie, giving the big names the front credits? If they have opening credits, being the voice of a lead character (Optimus Prime), I feel that he has earned that spot. Opinions?

It wouldn't surprise me.

I figure they'll have Shia, Megan, Josh, Tyrese and then Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime.

More likely than not the opening credits will be devoted to the human stars, leaving the voice actors until the very end.

That's just the way Hollywood works.

I checked the poster and his name is NOT on it. Not even in small leter. Only Shia, Megan Fox and another guy i think...

And Bay, he put is name quite big under TRANSFORMER

They might not have any opening credits for the cast, they might just leave them all to the end.

A lot of movies are doing this nowadays, they show the production companies, the title, then go straight to the movie. leave all the credits to the end. probably what they'll do for Transformers.

I was thinking the same thing. Like at the beginning of Small Soldiers. It was like, So-n-so, Kirsten Dunst, then a few more names, then Frank Langella as Archer, and Tommy Lee Jones as Chipp Hazard. I figure they'll do the same thing with this movie.

Well considering most people today wouldn't know who Peter Cullen, apart from Transformer fans, it is reasonable not to have his name on the "Tope of the box".

The answer is simple

Watch any of the origional trilogy and see where they put James Earl Jones as Vaders voice

The human actors in this movie will have top billing
