Skip the end of this for the list of Transformers that will be appearing in the movie!
You have to give Paramount some credit for knowing how to tease their Transformers coverage out – they’re doing a live webcast tomorrow where the film’s writers will reveal the most shocking secret of all…
The names of the robots.
It’s a good strategy – they know we’ll all cover this, telling you that Transformers writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman will be on Yahoo! at 11am PST to reveal the names of the robots that will be in the movie, and that you can send your questions to them at firstname.lastname@example.org – and then we’ll all cover the actual announcement itself! Warner Bros just got one story out of the Joker casting, while Paramount’s getting at least two out of a damn character list. Kudos.
I’m hoping to have some interesting insights into the movie in a couple of weeks, when I return from a long-awaited visit to the set…
