Transformers Dark of The Moon “Iridescent” Trailer

The spots for Transformers: Dark of The Moon have been slowly cluing us in to what appears to be an amped up level of badassery that is in store for us June 29th. Of the all that I’ve seen so far, this 1:34 long clip is set to Linkin Park’s “Iridescent”, (featured on the movie’s soundtrack) really sets the tone for Michael Bay’s latest (and last?) entry in the Transformer franchise.

I know is said this before Revenge of the Fallen but I can’t wait to see this.

Transformers: Dark of The Moon Gets A New Poster

I haven’t been a big fan of the posters that have been released to date for Transformers: Dark of The Moon. However, this brand new IMAX 3D poster featuring a very bad ass Optimus Prime amidst the destruction of downtown Chicago is impressive.

Fandango got the exclusive premiere, and I hope that I will be able to track down this one sheet in the near future.

The Wreckers, An Elite Autobot Unit That Loves NASCAR

As a die hard Transformers fan I was giddy with excitement that it was announced that The Wreckers would be appearing in Transformers: Dark of The Moon. In the constantly evolving Transformers Universe, The Wreckers were an elite Autobot Commando Unit with a rotating roster ranging from Springer and Ultra Magnus to Perceptor and Broadside.

In the Movie-verse, the Wreckers are NASCARs loaded to the gills with weapons made for nailing Decepticon ass. The identity of the Wreckers have been known for a while, with the crew made up of Roadbuster, Topspin, & Leadfoot and have been embraced by the fans (for the most part). Both Roadbuster and Topspin bear homages to the G1 incarnations in the primary color of their decos. While Leadfoot comes from the G2 lineup of Autobots.

Earlier in the week TFW2005 got their hands on official CGI renders of The Wreckers.

Even though Topspin has a mullet and Leadfoot has Cybertronian beer belly I’m looking past the NASCAR fan stereotypes and looking forward to seeing them in glorious IMAX 3D at the end of the month.

Diora Baird’s Orion Cosplay FTW

Following celebrities on twitter brings you two things: insight into their ridiculous lifestyle and horrifyingly creepy comments from other twitter users whenever they post a twitpic. Por ejemplo, check out any picture that Stacy Kiebler has ever posted, the comments will give you douche chills.

Now when Star Trek was going into production, I followed everyone associated with the picture. I needed to know ever possible detail (while remaining spoiler free). One such individual I followed was Diora Baird, an uber hottie, who was cast as an Orion in the film.

Today, because I was bored and I started sifting through her timeline to find the hottest Star Trek cosplay self shots ever posted on twitter.

Sadly, Ms. Baird’s work never made it into the final cut of the film. It’s actually quite a funny scene, and apparently the Paramount lawyers wiped all traces of it from the internet … so grab the DVD.

Someone is Stealing The Enterprise

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock rules for many reasons: Bones channeling Spock’s Katra and acting the fool, Doc Brown as a Klingon, and the emotionally charged destruction of the NCC-1701.

Watching the hull of the Enterprise burn up in the atmosphere of Genesis always makes me tear up. However, there is nothing that makes me happier than when Kirk and his loyal crew steal the Enterprise from Space Dock. Maybe it’s James Horners fantastic score or maybe it’s the lonely space janitor watching the Enterprise glide towards the space doors.

I have no other reason for posting this other than it fucking rules. Enjoy.

If anything, this proves that James T. Kirk > Jean Luc Picard. When did Picard ever have to steal his own ship? NEVER. He may have disobeyed orders, but he never stole THEN self destructed the flagship of the United Federation of Planets.
