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!
