We have good news and bad news to share. The bad news is that, despite reports to the contrary, it does appear that Optimus Prime will be sporting a pair of metallic lips in the upcoming live action Transformers film set to open on July 4th, 2007. Whatev, we're sure pop-action director Michael Bay will provide us with plenty of other elements about which to gripe before the curtain rises on Transformers.

Now for some good news. A slew of new images from the movie have flooded the internet recently, which we've compiled and added to our ongoing gallery. These images show the film's star, actor Shia LeBeouf (hereby known "the Boof"), in various states of raw emotion as he interacts with our favorite giant alien robots. Actually, he spends most of his time with eyes as wide as saucer plates, unless he's onscreen with costar Megan Fox, in which case we're not sure what he's doing because we're not really looking at him. The Boof is having a great summer, though, thanks to his other movie, Disturbia, which just spent a few weeks at the top spot before the summer movie season kicked into gear. No doubt Boof will be back on top come Independence Day with Transformers.

Thanks to everyone who sent in a tip!

      Tails, all movies are a waste of money. Shrug. I see well over 60 a year at the theater and we tend to go through 4 a week through netflix. But I have zero love for the original series or toys - cartoons in the 80s were awful. So Bay may change whatever he wants...it was just a cartoon designed to sell toys.

      Awesome to see a true fan calling out the differences. I personally have a problem with Starscream being an F-22 and not an F-15... but whatever.
      I just hope that this movies retains the same wit as the original. I still watch the old movie (even though i'm now 15 years older) just to hear Orson Welles say "your bargaining posture is highly dubious"; Or when Leonard Nimoy remarks "it's a pity you autobots die so easily, or I might have a sense of satisfaction"... right before HotRod/Rodimus Prime unleashes a matrix-full of whoop-@ss on him.

      I just hope in making a big blown up mainstream movie, care is taken to remember how the original was written... guess we'll find out in 2 months ;)

      The Camaro is a concept, so maybe that's why the brakes look fake?

      I don't care..I'm still going to watch this movie.

      Megan Fox looks damn good too.

      Anyone else think that the Mustang cop car is along side all of those GM products. I was under the impression GM probably paid a lot of money for all of their cars to be transformers, the big GMC, hummer, camaro, solstice....Mustang?

      seems odd to me

      Uh, actually "The 'Boof" is really "The 'Buff".

      Why does the new Camaro have fake brakes?
