TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN
Actor Tyrese Gibson spoke very obliquely to Movieweb about the sequel. "My character has been upgraded to Master Sergeant Epps," Gibson said. "I am the top dog in the air force. I am a master sergeant. I am bringing on way more air strikes. Michael Bay really beefed up my presence in this sequel. I was really happy about that ... It's all secrets. Its way more robots. There are a whole bunch of new robots that the world is going to be introduced to. There is going to be way more action sequences. All of the stuff that goes on is really insane. What I love the most? I can purposely say this. I have never done nothing in my life, or been a part of anything in my life, where I feel like ever man, woman, and child in the world is going to see something that I've been in, and it's a lot of pressure. It is something ... I don't know. It's just a lot of pressure. It's like someone telling you that, while it might be a messed up comparison, a tsunami is going to hit in seven months. And you can see the tsunami before it comes. How do you prepare for that?"
Directed by Michael Bay, release date June 26, 2009.

Mania.com has an interview with actors David McCallum and Marg Helgenberger, talking about playing Zeus and Hera in the upcoming animated feature. Helgenberger said, "As the saying goes, behind every great man is an even greater woman. I guess playing Hera means that I'm, well, not only Queen of the Gods, I'm better than he is!" "I played Julius Caesar in a Central Park version of the Shakespeare play," McCallum said, "and just before that I was the emperor in 'Amadeus' on Broadway. So when my acting friends heard I was Zeus, they said 'Ah, you're following your New York career.'"
Starring Keri Russell and Nathan Filion, release date March 3, 2009.
