Transformers Expand to IMAX Screens

Optimus Prime is about to stand even taller. Comingsoon.net is reporting that this summer's massive blockbuster, Transformers, will be re-released in IMAX theaters on September 21st. This version won't just be bigger. It will also feature extended footage. There's been no word on what these extra clips will include, but I certainly hope the scenes won't be too heavy on the speechification or robot slapstick comedy. On the other hand, I would like to know which Decepticon beat up the Beagle lander on Mars, and why it disabled that helpless science instrument, but I doubt that's going to happen. A few extra or extended battle scenes are a safer bet, and would certainly be worth watching, and listening to, in a massive IMAX arena.—Gregory Mone
