The New Transformers Movie

The new live-action Transformers movie is on target for a July 4th release next year. It looks like all of the Transformers have been given a major redesign, giving them each a more realistic transformation sequence and a more “alien” appearance, and Peter Cullen will be returning as the voice of Optimus Prime. When I first heard about this movie, I was concerned about how well a live-action movie could be added to a legendary franchise of toys, comics, and animated TV series, but the teaser trailer has put an end to my fears. This film is going to be amazing!
