If you've ever watched 'Transformers' back in the day, you probably remember the rambunctious Decepticon named Starscream. This robot of the skies always wanted to wrestle command of the Decepticons away from Megatron, but was almost always foiled, usually by his own doing. Today we honor him and his be-smirked face as the Cosplay of the Day!
Originally popularized by Alfred Hitchcock, the term "MacGuffin" refers to an object, person or location that drives the plot of story, with characters generally struggling to obtain said object, person or location before the opposition
As you may remember, 'Transformers 3' (dubbed 'Dark of the Moon') climaxed with a massive battle between warring robots that essentially leveled the city of Chicago. We expect nothing less from director Michael Bay, so we didn't bat an eye at that iconic skyline crumbling into a million pieces. However, Bay has shared a new image from the set of 'Transformers 4' that suggests that this massive action set piece has had a lasting impact on the world.
Michael Bay is currently hard at work on 'Transformers 4' that will effectively reboot the franchise while remaining true to the three films that came before it. In order to forge a connection between the original and new trilogy, it looks like Bay will bring back at least one castmember from the first movies. And it sure isn't Shia!
Michael Bay played footsies for a while with doing more 'Transformers' movies, but has signed up for a fourth film, because... well, money. Lots and lots of it. Bay earned $80 Million from the first film (which is the lowest grossing film of the franchise), and gets 8% of the merchandising money, so it's safe to assume that he makes over $100 Million a sequel. But it looks like he's bringing in a new lead.
