Cinemacon is currently going on and we know Paramount will be on tomorrow where the trailer for Transformers One will be shown early to attendants, while we wait for the public release April 18th (Chris Hemsworth is also in attendance of the event). But the first Transformers One news to come out of it is the Popcorn bucket. On the trade show floor, there are booths showcasing a wide range of products associated to the theatre going experience and one booth is for the makers of the limited edition popcorn buckets. At their booth is a popcorn bucket for the upcoming Transformers One film. It features Orion Pax.

Of course, the proportions are waaaaaaaaaaay off since they fashion the body in the form of a bucket, but it does give is an idea of what the character's head would look like and the details found on the body. We'll be back tomorrow if more news drops about Transformers One at Cinemacon.

The theater I go to doesn't do special popcorn buckets, just cup toppers and it's been a while since I've seen one. Still, a transforming bucket may be worth hunting down just for the novelty of it. Transforming isn't confirmed, but those wheels under the body are riveted to spin. I wouldn't expect much more than the legs folding back and maybe the head popping off or something if that.

Novelty popcorn buckets might be appealing if I wasn't trying to narrow down my collecting out of necessity.

It just occurred to me: Now that even action/sci-fi/superhero movies can routinely clock in at around 3 hours, but they don't have intermissions like in the '50s and '60s because some ***hole producers actually want to force audiences to leave for the restroom then pay to see the movie a second time later on, could the availability of hard plastic popcorn containers be sort of a...lifeline in our darkest theater?

Doesn't seem that ridiculous or disgusting since that SNL sketch pointed out something else you can do with the Dune-bucket (rhymes).

While tallying up the various responses to the Transformers One footage shown at Cinemacon, we got a sense of the story, and it appears that the villains of the movie will be the Quintessons. This is pre war and more about the origin of Transformers, so it makes sense that the Quintessons are an element. Both Orion (Optimus) and D 16 (Megatron) will team up to take them on, while also searching for the Matrix of Leadership (this film's MacGuffin) Indiana Jones style.

We also know from a reliable source that the Quintessons will also be part of the Transformers One movie toyline (the one targeted solely at kids).

So, any Quintesson fans out there? Does this news excite you? Let us know!

Really good news for the Transformers brand. While the upcoming animated film is trying different things with the Transformers lore (like the characters discovering Transformation), it is testing very well, better than even TMNT Mutant Mayhem, as it is said to be the best tested animated feature in the studio's history.


Word is that Paramount’s upcoming summer animated tentpole Transformers One is the best tested feature toon movie in the studio’s history and will surprise many.


In other fun news, Chris Hemsworth was at the panel and gave a shout out to Peter Cullen who he claims helped him figure out what best approach to use for voicing the character of Orion Pax. This news comes to us from John Campea, who was in attendance. His breakdown of the Transformers One content begins at the 13 minute mark though some fans may be triggered by his comments since he does use very vulgar language towards fans who refuse to accept anything but G1 in their Transformers media.



And here is a quick interview with Brian Tyler Henry and Chris Hemsworth:

Well I'm not shocked but still a bit bummed. I never cared for the Quintessons or that version of the Transformers origin story. I'm still gonna see the movie, and to hasbro that's all that matters.

As for some people not liking Hemsworth being Pax, it's easy to get past it. It's Pax, not Prime. He doesn't have to sound like Cullen. I'm more worried about the guy voicing Megatron. I hope he does better than Marnocha. He wasn't very good.

I have a feeling that this movie might take some inspiration from the Aligned backstory that depicted the Quintessons not as the true creators of the Transformers, but as merely invaders from space who came to Cybertron in its early years and tricked the populace into welcoming them, by pretending that they, the Quints, were benevolent innovators who only wanted to progress and prosper the Cybertronians' way of life, when they actually wanted to take over Cybertron and enslave its people for their own greedy benefit.

Marnocha did a fantastic job as megatron in the Prime wars.

However, his WFC trilogy voice did need improvements.

But as we saw with Perlman and Primal, it depends on the show really

Good news. Always been a fan of the Quintessons and their place in the mythos.

I know this is just wishful thinking that won't pan out, but the mention of Quintessons being prominent in TF1's toyline has me excited that we might actually get some Quint types that even Impossible Toys never got around to: the security forces killed by the Transorganics in the 'Dweller in the Depths' flashback (easy remolds of the Scientists, if we finally got official toys of them), the humanoid types in 'Forever is a Long Time Coming', the Prosecutor/Leader/Xenomorph-Head's wizened variant in 'Money Is Everything'.

Even cranking out more of what we already got at a cheaper price would give me custom fodder to repaint a few more into Marvel colors; all I've done so far is General Ghyrik from the I.T. Executioner.

But I need some hope now that I know this movie's even less likely to feature a shouting match between Alpha Trion and Emirate Xaaron on Iacon's high council. Oh well, hopefully it'll do well enough for 'Transformers TWO' to happen down the road, leading directly into the Bee movie prologue.

And for the record, I like the Primus origin better too, but always felt the Quintessons were a better fit for the live-action universe. Just leave a little ambiguity regarding the ancient origins of the Transformers; even the Sunbow cartoon did that by throwing Primacron into the mix.

Yes, I should have specified, I didn't like Marnocha's performance in WFC. I don't remember much of Prime Wars, but I don't remember Megatron being bad. Redneck Overlord is the standout there...

And as much as it pains me, I guess the Quints are better suited for Bayverse as well, the Primus origin would require a more involved story and most audiences just don't have the attention for that. Bayverse is mostly for those who prefer the cartoon over the comics, IMO. Elsewise the movies would have been written better.

Lest we forget that the Bayverse already had its own origin story with the AllSpark cube? ;)

And then ROTB had Scourge mention Primus by name.

Well has it been decided for certain that RoTB is a prequel to Bayverse? Other than Bee being a Camaro, nothing else ties them together, IIRC.

We're still in that nerve-wracking limbo period of "wait and see".

Although, the Aligned backstory that a lot of modern TF fiction have drawn from established the AllSpark as the physical instrument through which Primus granted life to the TFs. That could work.

I'm always a strong supporter of anything animated, even though I have been disappointed many times, there have been some amazing surprises in my life as well. I was not initially excited about the celebrity voices. Not because "Its not Peter Cullen" so much as...There are so many young talented VA's out there who could deliver amazing performances, for a fraction of what the big names would cost. I'm sure that alone would have saved the budget of this film several million dollars. But if they work, Ill judge them on their own merit when I see the film.

Yes, I am one of those *fans* that didnt see Mutant Mayhem, and probably wont. It just wasn't my style, visually, or storywise. While some thought the Turtles being voiced by "actual teens" was refreshing, the truth was they were mostly (Im guessing) pre-teens, they sounded between the ages of 8-11. No knock personally against those young actors. They were just cast in the wrong roles. If they make a sequel, and those same young men are chosen again, and their voices have matured as they actually become teens, might be a great opportunity for them. For my money, the best Turtles film is TMNT from 2007 (better than any other animated or live action version IMHO).

It is unfortunate that John Campena is such a pedantic ass when he speaks of fans. I dont need his permission to like, or dislike the film, or anything else about the franchise. Ill judge it on its own merits when I see it in theaters (as I've always planned to).

I refused to watch TMNT Mutant Mayhem because they did April dirty. She wasn't just beaten with the Ugly Stick, she was splashed with the Dip from Roger Rabbit. :SICK:

At least in TF1, there's no legacy human characters to butcher.

The certainty is that, as told to us by the director of ROTB:

- Paramount sees all films as occurring within the same universe
- Paramount does not care about establishing any coherent continuity among its films; directors/storytellers can do as they wish with their projects

Cinemacon was full of news for Transformers fans and here's one that may be very divissive. The head of Paramount, Brian Robbins, announced that they would be extending their deal with Lorenzo di Bonaventura, where he'll keep producing movies for them. This was announced at the same time that one of Lorenzo's upcoming projects was now in production: the Transformer GI Joe Crossover film.

This is a film that Bonaventura has promised he would deliver, and it seems he is truly intent on delivering that promise, as he stated in a video from earlier this year.

Yeah, I guess with RoTB that was obvious. Caple Jr. is a mediocre director and "storyteller." Their writers weren't much better.

Paramount really should exert more control over this franchise, maybe then we would get higher quality films.

Some animated surprises I've enjoyed in my life:

TF:TM 1986 - ok, I was 10 when this came out. And despite all claims to the contrary, while perhaps there was at the start the idea "kill off all the old toys, so we can have kids buy new ones", there is actually a compelling story, and beautiful animation.

This video brings out some amazing points about the background producitonat Toei, and how the massive budget (for animation) played into this film




Batman: Mask of the Phantasm 1993 - OK I actually didn't get to see this in theaters, btu I really wanted to. Its theatrical run was only a couple of weeks (wasn't supposed to be). It was just way ahead of its time.

Ghost in the Shell 1995 - nearly 30 years ago, an anime film being released theatrically was basically unheard of. This was a very lmited release, glad I got to experience it

Princess Mononoke 1999 - Long before Hayao Miyazaki & Studio Ghibli were household names in the west. I got to see this film in its limited theatrical run. Truly amazing

Titan A.E. 2000 - Billed as one of the BIggest box office Bombs of all time. One of Don Bluths last cell animated (but with CG elements) films. I think this one was again just way ahead of its time, would fare much better in todays market. Sucn an amazing film

TMNT 2007 & Astroboy 2009 - The only 2 films from the defunct studio IMAGI, and I love them both. Whats truly heartbreaking is what they had in production, but never came to fruition. Not sure why this studio failed, but they were amazing at what they did.

Spider-Man INto the Spider-Verse 2017 - Initially the look for the film I found to be off-putting, but the design became more tolerable as the amazing story was unfurled. The sequel seemed a bit "over stuffed" for me, and Ill see the 3rd one when it eventually comes out, but that first film is still just fantastic! Winning the Oscar for Best animated film that year in my mind kind of vindicated the fact that nobody paid attention to Batman"MotP 25 years earlier, as it certainly could have been a contender at the time.

I dont want to set my expectations too high (or at all really). and I seriously doubt this will happen. But with Disney and Pixar basically in the crapper, id love for this new film TF:One to really make a run at Best Animated film. Would once again (perhaps) in my eyes vindicate the fact that nobody (of influence) paid attention to TFTM back in 1986.

As with many leaks, these first looks are not optimal and either grainy or obscured. Below you will see an image of Transformers One Bumblebee and Optimus drink topper figures. They esch have a robot mode and alt mode version. This is their bodies after they get T Cogs.

We also have a shot of Bumblebee’s mouth. You can see it behind Chris Hemsworth and Brian Tyler Henry.

Looks like it's on one of those high altitude balloons and will actually start at 10am when it reaches space (or the edge of it as is often the case)

EDIT: I liked the trailer, looks like it's going to be fun, very kid friendly. Does feel a lot more like a prequel to Earthspark or Cyberverse than the movies. The majority of the live chat seemed to really hate it though. Hopefully we get a better quality trailer immediately because it was not the greatest idea to show it on a transparent "screen".

My initial thoughts, i liked it as well. It’s a different vision or take of how these characters started out on Cybertron while keeping to the roots of their initial existence. Yes, it looks to be more kid friendly, it does bring in some good humor as they development their transforming powers and then we see how they will eventually use them in battle.
To what @Emerje mentioned, I to look forward to a better quality trailer.

HOLY SHIT I cannot overstate how excited I am for this. The trailer was so much more than I thought we were going to get, I mean the sheer scale of the movie seems astounding. The humor looks like it gels well for the setting, and the VAs all sound great. I’m finding it hard to think of any negatives right now, I’m so giddy.

Well, I'm probably going to skip this one. I love the designs, and I'm having the toys when they come out, but the movie it's self feels like a pixar movie to me. Maybe it's just the old man in me talking. I really wanted to like it but I ain't feeling it.

I hope it does well to be honest. I still want to like it so maybe as more info and trailers come out I'll get more hyped. This is just my first impression.

Looks fun! I'm excited for the film. I really like the look of it, the design and landscapes look amazing. But I think what I'm even more excited for is which if any other legacy characters appear, be it small roles or even just background cameos. That one shot of Airachnid seems to imply that we could finally be getting an updated Airachnid toy, which would be fantastic! And I'd love to see how they do other familiar characters in this aesthetic.

This actually looks quite fine, not an amazing movie for my personal tastes but I'm just some guy who's no longer part of the intended audience, which is kids, and kids tastes change and are different from when most of adults were kids, some of the adults in my life didn't care about certain kids films/shows that plenty from my generation have grown up to adore.

It's just amazing to actually get a Transformers film that seems like it's actually targeted for it's intended audience, the Bay films while I'm somewhat tolerant on (used to straight up like), I still never thought they were even remotely appropriate for children to watch, or even for plenty in the PG-13 range.

Only thing I really don't like is Megatron's voice but I'm willing to give it a chance regardless, Chris Hemsworth's Optimus/Orion sounds professional at the least, he's one I'm more on board for in my first impressions.

Really like the quality of the animation style though, the lighting especially which is an underrated part of 3D movies, like some of those shots of Bee's Battle Mask for example, so on that front I'm already stoked for a movie that looks good! It's crazy that the visuals in this first trailer here blow me away in comparison to Rise of the Beast's first trailer which was...rough in the CGI side of things.

Edit: Also trailers aren't the actual full movies in the end, any of you remember Spider-Verse or Puss In Boot's first trailers? They weren't that amazing either, so I'm reserving final judgement until the reviews come in.

See, Michael Bay? This is how you do robot characters who are likable, genuine, and aren't defaulted to being murderous psychopaths.

What does the ultimate judge think? I had heard rumors the movie is being done by some Pixar alumni people. And... you can REALLY tell that in the trailer. It's full of the exact same kind of goofy humor you would expect to see in a trailer for Inside Out, or Wreck-it-Ralph, Toy Story, or any other movie like that which you care to name. I'm not sure that sets particularly well with Transformers in general.

Good impressions? It's nice to see a transformers movie that ISN'T all about humans. If they can stop themselves from trying to inject any political messages into it, then it should be fine. The renderings are clean and everything looks smooth. A little TOO smooth in fact. There are a lot more rounded edges and contours on every character than I'm used to seeing with Transformers.

And if you want to pre-order the inevitable merchandise? Then the Optimus Prime figure is already up for pre-order on BigBadToyStore.com!

Big day for Transformers One News. While the trailer was first presented from space, we now have it on youtube as a regular trailer for you to view. What do you think of the designs? Of Badassitron? Of the voices? Let us know!

Wreck-It Ralph wasn't Pixar.

As much as I like this trailer, and as much as I (used to) enjoy Bumblebee and (thankfully still enjoy) Rise of the Beasts, I pray for the day when I stop seeing these comments. I'm just tired on them.

It's decent. I think the trailer showed too much humor and not enough serious moments (even younger-geared films need those). And the music needed something more than "be awed" used constantly.
