U.S. Opening Date: 3 July 2007



Introduced in 1984, the Transformers brand took the world by storm with its saga of the Autobots versus the Decepticons. The innovative "robots in disguise" resulted in a successful toy line from Hasbro and Takara, comic book series, television program and an animated feature film. More than 20 years later, a new generation has discovered the excitement of the Transformers brand and its legendary characters, including the two leaders of the opposing sides: Optimus Prime and Megatron. Today, the franchise features a popular toy line, an animated series on the Cartoon Network and a chart-topping comic book series from IDW Publishing.


More likely to appeal to nostalgic male twentysomethingers who lived through the original craze than anyone else, this big screen live action Transformers movie by the director of Bad Boys, The Island and Armageddon might also wind up creating a new generation of tie-in toy-buying small boys. Unlikely to appeal to anyone else though, especially anyone of the opposite gender . . .
