Cars 2 may not have been anyone’s favorite Pixar flick, but even the critics who were disappointed at its lack of heart had to admit it at least looked gorgeous. On a visual level, the characters and their colorful universe were as dazzlingly, distinctly Pixar-ian as any in the studio’s history. Using their signature style — rich colors, clean lines, big friendly eyes — the animators brought a wide variety of vehicles to life. From beat-up tow trucks to Japanese racecars to rugged military Jeeps, cars of all stripes were given lives and personalities.

Now, a bevy of famed cinematic cars have received the (totally unofficial) Pixar treatment as well. Old Red Jalopy isn’t actually associated with the studio, but their reimaginings of notable movie vehicles look so good, we’re almost fooled. Check out the gallery after the jump.

As you probably recall: Back in 2009, actress Megan Fox went public with her professional issues with Michael Bay, calling her Transformers director “a tyrant” and likening him to Napoleon and Adolf Hitler. Fox (unsurprisingly) caught heat for her comments, and though Bay made some attempts to smooth things over, the two continued sniping publicly and eventually parted ways. Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was brought in to replace Fox as Shia LaBeouf‘s even more improbably gorgeous love interest, Fox pursued other projects, and the story should have ended there.

Unfortunately, Fox, Bay, and LaBeouf all have a tendency toward what might politely be called outspokenness, and what might less charitably called a constitutional inability to shut the hell up – and so here we are, a year later, still reporting on this ridiculous story. Bay is attempting to set the story straight. Again. And this time, he’s bringing Steven Spielberg into it for some reason. Sigh. Read the latest chapter in this tiresome and apparently endless saga after the jump.

A slew of new clips were released over the weekend, offering better looks at possible future summer blockbusters Green Lantern, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and 30 Minutes or Less.

In October 2008, Universal Studios announced that they would be launching a theme park attraction based on Michael Bay‘s Transformers at the Hollywood and Singapore theme parks. The ride will use High Definition 3D footage, along with practical special effects and “stunning” robotics (ie expect giant animatronic robots) to “place humans in the middle of a war between the Autobots and Decepticons”. It is expected to use the same ride system of The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man ride from Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The new ride lasts five minutes, a quarter of a mile, with the ride vehicles rising to 60 feet in the air.

Last month Universal announced that 20-30 minutes of storytelling will be built into the queue, similar to the experience done at Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey in Orlando. We’ve previously posted concept art from the ride (we’ve included them after the jump if you didn’t see them way back when). This week a few concept images from the ride’s queue  found their way online.

Infographic: Transformers Decepticons

As a follow up to the Transformers: Autobots Infographic posted last week, we have a new infographic detailing the Decepticons (cars and other land vehicles) from the original American Transformers Generation 1 cartoon, which aired from 1984 to 1987. I’ve been told that, as the series is from 1980s, not all of the art was readily available — thus, some artistic liberties were taken in order to represent as many Decepticons as possible while keeping as true to the spirit of the Generation 1 series as possible. I’ve also been told that the original Transformers: Autobots Infographic has been updated and corrected thanks to the /Film community for pointing out the errors. Hit the jump to see the new Decepticon infographic.
