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:


  • 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!


  • 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 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.

To see them all, check out Michael Bay’s official website.

  1. I saw this film last night at the cinema? so i dunno why its not out in your country yet but just to let you know without spoilers, ITS AWESOME!!!!!!!

  2. @Ollie
    let me get some spoilers

  3. That clip was pretty cool.

  4. haha ok clip was kinda cool ( I love the dad in this movie) but it reminded me of small soldiers… which ironically this dad played another dad in that movie. But I’m more concerned with the addition of that many new robots and the fact that devastator has “robot balls”. I’m all for the humor and stuff but this seems like a little much and wayyy to immature. What did Bays 15 year old son beg him to put that in as a joke? I hope this movie doesn’t suck balls.

  5. i was so tempted to read the spiolers but i didnt

  6. Is it just me, or is all the focus that’s being placed on the technical CGI aspects of the film a tacit acknowledgment that the story/characters will suck as bad or worse than the first?

  7. OKay, i’ll finally say it: This is a rental. Where’s the Michael Bay hate-wagon? I’m jumping on…

  8. Newsflash…there is a current argument going on as to what exactly constitutes an IMAX film. IMAX argues that it is a physical process, others disagree and argue the physical SIZE of the screen does it…either way there is a VERY good chance that your view of OPTIMUS PRIME does NOT equal someone else’s view of “him” so claiming that he is “life sized” on the IMAX screen is a disengenuous point at best.

  9. I cant wait

  10. @ Fenix,

    It definitely reminds me of Small Soldiers as well.

  11. @Rob Keyes
    So where was the weapon placement you were referring to? A little hard for me to make you on my 19″.

  12. Small Soldiers? For some reason I was thinking more like Gremlins (or was it Gremlins 2?)

    The whole “cube turns machines into transformers” is silly. One of the worst plot points from this serires. I’ll still see this movie for the robot fighting tho.

  13. Maybe thats how they overcome devastator, shoot him in the balls?

  14. robo-testicles and phallic weapons? hope it is nothing like adding nipples to the Batsuit ;)
