While it's certainly nothing out of the ordinary for a DVD to come with extended footage and deleted scenes, a recent interview with the stars of Transformers DOTM at MTV News reveals the DVD release may be chock-full of them. With the film already boasting a two hour and forty minute run time it's understandable that some of the more "superfluous" scenes ended up on the cutting room floor.

"Because we're 3-D, you're shooting digital all the time," LaBeouf told MTV News. "The beauty for us is, let's say I'm doing a scene with [John] Malkovich or Frances [McDormand] or [Patrick] Dempsey or even Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley] — we'd just riff. You've got hours and hours of all that ... where you're just riffing and ad libbing and trying to come up with lines."

Optimus fighting Shockwave has no place anyways, considering he's helpless by the time Optimus touches down. That little "You die!" moment just consists of Prime killing a blind, beaten Shockwave.

Admittedly the same commercial has movie-grade explosions and building wreckage.

Assuming the fight was part of the movie, perhaps in Chernobyl? Shockwave pops out of the Driller calling Optimus, and suddenly disappears. Seems like more was supposed to happen, like maybe Shockwave engaging Optimus for a bit before finally running off?

So will it be like a director's cut or just an outrageous number of deleted scenes?

I hope they are robot scenes. I dont care for any more of Patrick Dempsy and Jon Malkovich is repulsive.

Yeah that article is bang-on. With most CGI-laden movies, 99 times out of 100, you are not going to see any special effects in the deleted scenes. It's all just dialogue really. I would honestly prefer to see any scenes like that just re-inserted into the movie and not have to watch them separately.

The novel did have a fair bit of stuff which was not in the movie, (in regards to non-action scenes), so I would imagine we'd see some of that.

Yes,yes,yes,yes!
Maybe we'll see sentinel kill the twins like in the book
Maybe starscream survives
Maybe megatron and shockwave talk....
Maybe bumblebee dies
Maybe optimus acepts megatrons truce
Maybe a different ending
This movie was awesome

Don't hold your breath, with reassurances like this:

"Because we're 3-D, you're shooting digital all the time," LaBeouf told MTV News. "The beauty for us is, let's say I'm doing a scene with [John] Malkovich or Frances [McDormand] or [Patrick] Dempsey or even Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley] — we'd just riff. You've got hours and hours of all that ... where you're just riffing and ad libbing and trying to come up with lines."

I can almost guarantee there a no TFs in any of the deleted scenes. It'll be like movie 1's dvd deleted scenes, all useless crap that no one wanted to or cared to see.

I will bet everything I own on this being the case. With the astronomical cost of CGI you simply don't leave scenes like that out of the movie. If CGI was done, it goes in the movie.

It's not unheard of for scenes with CGI to be cut. Uncommon, but not unheard of.

Star Wars Ep. III had a completed deleted scene where General Grievous executes a Jedi, with a few dozen droids surrounding him. And there's a scene where Yoda goes to Dagobah, which is entirely CGI. Together, that's a little less than 2 minutes of heavy CGI footage.
Granted Star Wars isn't comparable to Bay's TF movies, but that's still a lot of cut CGI.

There will probably be a bare bones release. Then they will have an Autobot and Decepticon edition (With faction shaped case, or maybe one of those transforming cases) each with seperate scenes on it. Then there will be a special edition. Then there will be a directors cut. Then there will be a special edition directors cut. Then a special edition directors cut platinum edition. All with seperate features to drive you crazy :twisted: :BOOM:

It's true. Star Wars only gave me indigestion. Dark of the Moon made me throw up in my mouth.

I just saw the commercial again. And prime has his sword and shield from chernobyl. I'd say that's a very reasonable theory.

Well, if somebody remembers, there was a huge Jeep on the Chicago scenes, supposed to be Rollbar, who never showed up...

I don't think there will me many scenes with actual cybertronians in them. perhaps in their alts... but I guess most deleted scenes will be about humans ^^
