First-ever Global Movie Partnership Will Cover Over 35 Countries
New Television Spot from Director Michael Bay to Launch May 15 in over 15 Territories


DEERFIELD, Ill., May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OREO, the world's favorite cookie, announced today its partnership with Paramount Pictures for the global release of the upcoming Michael Bay film "Transformers: Age of Extinction," releasing in the U.S. on June 27. Covering over 35 countries, this first-ever global movie partnership includes a global TV spot directed by Bay, Transformers-themed OREO cookies and packaging, point-of-sale activations as well as digital and social media efforts.

Transformers News: OREO Brand to Partner with Paramount Pictures for the Global Release of Michael Bay's "Transformers:

"We're very excited about this partnership as we're bringing two iconic brands together in a big way around the world," said Jennifer Hull, Brand Manager Global Oreo at Mondelez International. "The play value and optimistic view of the world that are inherent to the OREO brand fit perfectly into the environment of Transformers. We cannot wait to showcase all of the marketing support that's sure to surprise and delight consumers everywhere."

From new packaging and movie-themed activities on the OREO Twist, Lick and Dunk app around the world to Autobot and Decepticon embossed cookies in Asia and Latin America and custom flavors in Southeast Asia, OREO is set to excite Transformers and OREO fans – wherever they are.

"The OREO team has created one of the most integrated and innovative Transformers partner campaigns for the movie franchise to date," commented LeeAnne Stables, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Partnerships at Paramount Pictures. "We were fortunate to have Michael Bay dedicate the time, while still in production on 'Transformers: Age of Extinction,' to personally direct this new OREO television campaign, which Transformers movie fans around the world will no doubt love to see."

The TV campaign, set to launch later this month, will bring the OREO brand into the world of Transformers. Directed by Bay, in collaboration with ad agency The Martin Agency, the spot shows how an OREO cookie provides a moment of support as the giant robot Transformers carry on in the fight for good. Titled "Little Help," the spot will air in over 15 markets.

The global deal between Mondelez International, OREO and Paramount Pictures was negotiated and executed in collaboration with LiquidThread, the brand content division within Mediavest.

I see Galvatron on the ground. I'm sure this is part of the movie, minus the Oreo kid. I thinking Optimus gets shot from behind like in the previous trailers, turns around, and gets shot in the chest and blown back. Awesome.

So close to the "How Unicron eats a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup" ad that should've been made for that campaign in the '90s, yet so far...

We just don't see this kind of thing enough during summer blockbuster season. Has there still never been a commercial where Spidey runs out of web fluid, only to be saved by replacing it with the formula for Twizzlers?

Ugh.....i just don't understand. It's such a massive stretch of the imagination. The oreo product is so forced in this ad. It's silly and unnecessary.

Why would you put an oreo cookie on top of a giant robot? Cause that's all that happened. Pointless and contrived.

We also have a couple of new Transformers: Age of Extinction cross promotional commercial from Duracell and GAC Motors.

Here's Duracell's commercial, additional promotional images can be found on their Facebook page:


And here's the one from GAC Motors. You'll remember they are to have a vehicle featured in the upcoming film, the Trumpchi E-Jet. They have also updated their website with new imagery of their vehicles as robots. Whether these vehicles will actually transform in the movie remains to be seen.

Our friends in the Philippines can treat themselves to some delicious Dunkin Donuts and score themselves a Transformers: Age of Extinction figurine! During the month of June they will be offering Optimus Prime, Drift, and Bumblebee figurines with the purchase of a dozen donuts plus a small additional charge. No word on if this promotion will be available domestically. Check out the image below:

Kids don't go for inaccurate figures, they have deeper perception for toys than adults by this days. I am a father talking.

Agreed in all honesty-but that was the designer's word as to why, at least, the dinobots are brightly coloured rather than just 'another black/grey figure'. (Correct me if I'm wrong, I believe it was in the designer's video a bit back?

I don't care about any of the other stuff, I just want one of those coolers. I'd be happy with one of those.

And just curious... has there been any mention of a motorcycle character in this new film? I don't recall having heard of one so I fail to see the importance of them giving away a Kawasaki Ninja if it doesn't directly coincide with the film.
Like I said previously, I don't care about any of the other prizes, the bike included, I was just wondering about the connection and whether we could look forward to some silly bastardization of an otherwise nice looking motorcycle making its way into the toy line. I'm running out of stuff to scoff at and have a whole new batch of derisive comments ready to sling Hasbro's direction. ;)

The Transformers: Age of Extinction marketing campaigns are really amping up around the globe! From Mumbai, via IndianTelevision.com, we have news of a Hasbro-licensed 12-foot tall, 300kg heavy Optimus Prime statue touring six Indian cities to promote the film release - and give fans a chance to win premiere screening tickets! Check out more info here, and images below.

Aiming to bring viewers a step closer to their favourite hero – Optimus Prime, the makers have made a whopping 12-foot high statue that weighs about 300kg. Warrior, fearless and righteous – Optimus Prime is the ultimate leader of the Autobots who are constantly raging wars against a rival faction of robots called the Decepticons.

Under a special license from Hasbro (American multinational that is one of the largest toy makers in the world), this figurine is made to exact design specifications. The viewing experience of this complex figurine has been enhanced by intricate lighting. Encased in a special package, a dedicated container has been hired to transport the robot locally around India. Optimus Prime will tour six cities, starting with Pune and eventually making his way to Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, and Hyderabad.

why does it seem like some of the people who make these don't really pay attention to the actual render of the character..

it's nice an all, and i'm sure a lot of effort was put into making it.. it just doesn't look like there was a lot of effort put into getting it right.
