Transformers 2 Character Posters And New Plot Info

Paramount Pictures has premiered three new character posters for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen on Yahoo Movies. Optimus Prime is joined in the posters by Starscream and Bumblebee. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters on June 24th 2009.

Also, our friends at Latino Review found an interview with Transformers scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci in the latest issue of Creative Screenwriting Magazine where they provide some new information about the film's plot. Warning: possible spoilers follow:

When the story begins, the Autobots and the military have been waging a secret war against the Decpticons. As more of the giant robots continue to resurface, though, it becomes apparent the Transformers have been part of Earth's history for longer than they'd led mankind to believe. One group of bureaucrats even womders if the Decepticons are only appearing because of the Autobot presence. Desperate not to leave Earth undefended, Optimus Prime turns to Sam and asks him to become a human advocate, someone who will convince mankind that the Autobots should be allowed to saty. Sam refuses to believe he can help, though, wanting to go to college and live a normal life – as normal as possible with the strange thoughts and visions that have haunted him since being exposed to the All Spark's primal energies two years earlier. Alas, Sam's refusal will have harsh consequences for himself, the Autobots and possibly the entire world. The Decepticons fallen leader, Megatron has been resurrected and brings with him an ancient evil from the Transformers own history.

Of course, they are talking about The Fallen, the film's title character.
