Official Press Release:

DreamWorks will be treating thousands of fans to a preview of what is coming up from the studio at this year's Comic-Con International, being held from July 13-17 in San Diego, CA. Those who come by the DreamWorks booth (#3729) will have an opportunity to be among the first to attend exclusive advance screenings of two of DreamWorks' big live-action summer releases. They will also see, firsthand, some exciting behind-the-scenes props and sets, including one big surprise, yet to be announced.

Here is some of what awaits fans visiting the DreamWorks booth at Comic-Con International:

* Free passes to a special advance screening of Michael Bay's new futuristic action thriller The Island.

* Free tickets to the first public screening of Wes Craven's new suspense thriller Red Eye.

* Exclusive footage from some of the new animated features coming from DreamWorks Animation, including Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Over the Hedge, and Flushed Away.

* Fun giveaways from several of our upcoming films, including the Japanese cult hit Casshern.

Fans will also get a glimpse behind-the-scenes at a variety of props and actual sets from DreamWorks' upcoming slate, including:

* The real movie sets used to create DreamWorks' and Aardman's clay-animated feature Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, together with concept art by Wallace & Gromit creator and director Nick Park.

* Character maquettes and conceptual artwork from the computer-animated comedy Over the Hedge.

* A full-sized flying motorcycle, called the Wasp, which is featured in an explosive action sequence in Michael Bay's new action thriller The Island.

In addition, it has recently been announced that DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, in association with Hasbro, Inc., will produce a new live-action motion picture based on the globally popular Transformers. Fans at Comic-Con will actually participate in the launch of the movie's website, and will be treated to a few surprises to kick off the film's promotional campaign. Transformers is being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Constantine), Don Murphy (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) and Tom DeSanto (X-Men and X2: X-Men United), with Steven Spielberg (War of the Worlds) executive producing.

Opening nationwide on July 22, The Island stars Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson as Lincoln Six-Echo and Jordan Two-Delta, two residents of a seemingly utopian but contained facility in the mid-21st century. Like all of the inhabitants of this carefully controlled environment, Lincoln and Jordan hope to be chosen to go to the "The Island" - reportedly the last uncontaminated spot on the planet - until they learn that everything about their existence is a lie and that they are actually more valuable dead than alive. Michael Bay directed The Island from a screenplay by Caspian Tredwell-Owen and Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci, from a story by Tredwell-Owen.

A suspense thriller at 30,000 feet, Red Eye opens nationwide on August 19. Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) hates to fly, but the terror that awaits her on the night flight to Miami has nothing to do with a fear of flying. Moments after takeoff, her seatmate, Jackson (Cillian Murphy), menacingly reveals the real reason he's on board: He is an operative in a plot to assassinate the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security and Lisa is the key to its success. Red Eye was directed by Wes Craven from a screenplay by Carl Ellsworth, from a story by Ellsworth and Dan Foos.

Opening nationwide on October 7, Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is the first feature-length film featuring the beloved characters from Aardman's Academy Award®-winning shorts in a brand new comedy adventure. Nick Park, the creator of Wallace & Gromit, directed the film with Steve Box.

An action-packed sci-fi thriller, Kazuaki Kiriya's Casshern blends Japanimation and manga-inspired live action resulting a new kind of hybrid filmmaking that is both visually stunning and thought-provoking. The story takes place late in the 21st century, following a half century of war that has left the planet ravaged and the entire human race dispirited and exhausted. A geneticist brings hope in the form of a "neo-cell," which can rejuvenate human parts with no risk of rejection, but nature interferes with science to create a new menace that forces the entire human race to fight an ultimate war against its own extinction. DreamWorks will release the Japanese hit under the banner of its specialty film division, Go Fish Pictures.

Bruce Willis and Garry Shandling head up the all-star voice cast of the computer-animated comedy Over the Hedge, based on the popular comic strip by Michael Fry and T Lewis. When a group of woodland creatures find a suburban housing development encroaching on their forest home, they become unlikely allies as they learn to co-exist with - and even exploit - this strange new world called suburbia. Over the Hedge is slated for release by DreamWorks Animation in Summer 2006.

Flushed Away is a computer-animated comedy adventure set on and beneath the streets of London, starring the voices of Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet. Roddy (Jackman) is an upper-crust "society rat," who is rather rudely evicted from his Kensington flat when he is flushed down into Ratropolis, the bustling sewer world under London's streets. There, he meets Rita (Winslet), an enterprising scavenger. Though completely out of his element at first, the privileged Roddy finds himself an unlikely hero when he learns that Ratropolis is in danger from the world above. From DreamWorks Animation and Aardman, Flushed Away is scheduled for release in Fall 2006.

DreamWorks Animation SKG (NYSE-DWA) is devoted to producing high-quality family entertainment through the use of computer-generated (CG) animation. Utilizing world-class creative talent and state-of-the-art technological capabilities, the company is committed to making two computer-animated feature films a year that appeal to a broad movie-going audience.

DreamWorks SKG was formed in October, 1994, by its three principal partners - Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen - to produce live-action motion pictures; animated feature films; network and cable television programming; home video entertainment; records; books; toys; and consumer products.

    A call to all dutch Transformers fans, and especially those of the Robots In Disguise series. This will be your last chance to join me and a few other dutch fans in meeting the voice of RiD's Optimus Prime, Neil Kaplan on home soil.

    Together with fellow Seibertron-member Hans, I (Raymond T.) will personally host this little get-together in the capitol of the Netherlands, Amsterdam.

    It will happen next week on June 11th at 20.00 hours. Neil has agreed to give out his autographs and share some stories, but he mostly just wants to meet fans from all over the world. This past weekend he was present at the UK's Auto Assembly convention. And next week he will visit one of Europe's smallest countries of Holland, The Netherlands.

    If you want to join our little party you are welcome to do so. You can either e-mail me at or send me a private message through the Seibertron message board. We have set the closing date at Wednesday June 8th.

    We hope you can join us there!

    The convention season is upon us again, and first up for Wildfur is the Comics Expo in Bristol (14-15 May). Simon Furman and Andrew Wildman will be appearing on the Saturday (the 14th), both as Wildfur and as guests of Titan Books (signing copies of the newly released Transformers: Aspects of Evil). Check out the Wildfur table for signed/bookplated copies of the Transformers: War Within - The Dark Ages trade paperback, copies of the exclusive Transformers mini-comic (previously only available in the Atari game) and lots of other Transformers and Wildfur-related goodies. Go to for more details on times and events (including a dedicated talk on all things Transformers).

UK Transformers-con, Auto Assembly (on Saturday June 4th). Once again, there'll be signed/bookplated copies of the Transformers: War Within - The Dark Ages trade paperback, copies of the exclusive Transformers mini-comic (previously only available in the Atari game) and lots of other Transformers and Wildfur-related goodies for sale.

    Transformers: Robots in Disguise voice actor Neil Kaplan (RiD Optimus Prime and RiD To-Tor as well as Hawkmon from DigiMon) has agreed to come to Amsterdam, The Netherlands for a few hours on June 11th to chat a spell and maybe chuck down a few glasses of Energon.

    Seibertron Energon Pub member Hans and myself have tried to get him to come to out native country of Holland and the voice actor as agreed to it!
    This will not be an official function on his part, but has expressed to be curious about the Transformers fandom over various countries. The fact that he won't be able to make it to the dutch Transformers convention later in the year, made him agree to swing by the Netherlands a week after his appearance at the Auto Assembly in the UK (june 4th).

    Hans and myself will be orchestrating this special meet-and-greet with the voice of RiD Prime ourselves. Neil Kaplan himself has already named this "One Prime Evening in Amsterdam".

    All dutch Transformers fans are welcome to join the party. There will be a small fee of €2,- at the most to cover expenses, but at the same time Neil Kaplan has agreed to a signing session if time will allow. Send your details to either my e-mail of or PM me on the Seibertron board.
