This cut of the cantina scene features rough early audio and no music, but some of the dialogue is different, the performances are often very different, and there’s a good bit of material that didn’t make the final cut.

Michael Bay has made a career of making cars look cool on screen, and he’s hoping to continue that trend. He’s on board to produce a film for Warner Bros. called Cosmic Motors, based on a book of futuristic designs by Daniel Simon.
Simon, who has been a designer, for vehicles in particular, on films like Prometheus, Oblivion, Tron Legacy and Captain America: The First Avenger, released the book in 2007.

We’ve got a gallery of examples below.
Now, Bay and Warner Bros. have hired writer Kyle Ward to adapt the book into a screenplay. Read more about the Cosmic Motors movie, and the book below including a bunch of new photos. Read More »
