It’s only a few more days till Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen graces the silver screens worldwide. On that note, don’t expect any slow-down in the marketing – Paramount is set on making this the biggest film of the year.

Today we have another video showing a short scene from the movie, a bunch of cool little facts and trivia and a very weird, slightly spoilerish tidbit involving one of the larger bots featured in the sequel.


In the last two days alone, we got some more cool photos for Michael Bay’s epic blockbuster and earlier today Screen Rant reported on the viral videos popping up around the world. There’s no stopping the increase in excitement for fans and moviegoers alike.

To start, here are a bunch of cool facts and info about the Transformers sequel:

Robots

  • 14 robots last time, 46 robots this time (ILM only)
  • If you had all the gold ever mined in the history of man, you could build a little more than half of Devastator.
  • Optimus Prime will be life size on IMAX screens in many forest fight shots.
  • Devastator’s hand is traveling 390 miles per hour when he punches the pyramid.
  • The pyramid destruction simulation was 8 times bigger than the old rigid simulation all-time record holder at ILM.
  • All robot parts laid out end to end would stretch from one side of California to the other, about 180 miles
  • Devastator’s parts stacked tip to tip would be as tall as 58 empire state buildings.
  • If all the texture maps on the show were printed on 1 square yard sheets, they would cover 13 football fields.

Disk space

  • TF1 took 20 Terabytes of disk space. Trans2 took 145 Terabytes. Seven times bigger!
  • 145 terabytes would fill 35,000 DVDs. Stacked one on top of the other without storage cases, they would be 145 feet tall.

Rendering times

  • If you rendered the entire movie on a modern home PC, you would have had to start the renders 16,000 years ago (when cave paintings like the Hall of Bulls were being made) to finish for this year’s premiere!

Imax

  • Optimus Prime will be life size on IMAX screens in many forest fight shots.
  • Imax frames take about 6 times longer than anamorphic to render.
  • IMAX frame render times: As high as 72 hours per frame!

Devastator

  • Devastator is as tall as a 10 story building.
  • Devastator has more than 10 times the number of individual parts found in an average car.
  • Laid out end to end, Devastator’s parts would be almost 14 miles long.
