A new video has been posted on the Transformers Youtube page giving us another look into the Red Carpet event from the opening of Universal Studios Transformers: The Ride 3D which opened earlier this summer.
Check it out embedded below as many celebrities showed up and shared their excitement including Peter Cullen and Frank Welker.
Director Michael Bay recently shared some details about his upcoming fourth live action Transformers film with the LA Times. Bay reiterates that this will not be a reboot, though there will be an all new cast. He also hints that this film may see the action move off planet. The fourth film, which is currently being written by Ehren Kruger, will see a smaller budget than that of Transformers: DOTM, approximately $165 million.
“It’s not a reboot," Bay said, reiterating that the new film will have an all-new cast. "That’s maybe the wrong word. I don’t want to say 'reboot' because then people will think we’re doing a 'Spider-Man' and starting from the beginning. We’re not. We’re taking the story that you’ve seen — the story we’ve told in three movies already — and we’re taking it in a new direction. But we’re leaving those three as the history. It all still counts... We’re moving on to something different.”
"That feels like the way to go, doesn’t it?" says Bay. "I want to go a little off [the planet] but I don’t want to go too sci-fi. I still want to keep it grounded."
Those of you who enjoyed the scores from the previous three Transformers live action films will be pleased to know Steve Jablonsky will be returning for Transformers 4. His official website has listed Transformers 4 as one of his upcoming projects.

Hot on the heels of our Cyberverse Evac gallery we now have the gallery for his Deluxe Class figure. Unlike his Cyberverse Legion Class figure, which is a general release, the Deluxe Class version is exclusive to Universal Studios Hollywood.

There’s plenty more Transformer action to come with a major new video game release, “Transformers: Fall of Cybertron,” due in August and another Bay movie in the works. (The director, by the way, says that the fourth film will include some redesign of the robots and an entirely new cast. He also said it will be his last and set the franchise up “for the next guy.”)
