There’s a rumor going around that Isabel Lucas (who’s playing a girl named Alice in the next Transformers movie) is going to be a Pretender. As much as that might seem initially cool, it’ll just turn Transformers into another Terminator movie (we don’t need any more Terminator stuff seeing as how there’s a new movie coming out in 2009 and the Sarah Connor Chronicles is already on Fox.) That and the fact that Isabel is supposed to have “an arm that transforms into an energy weapon, a long tongue, and a scanning tenticle”-TFW2005 means that something slutty between her and Megan Fox is probably going to happen *shudder*.
I also think it’s so stupid to have the Transformers be so big and then have Pretenders, which are obviously as small an anorexic girl 😛 . The only reason I could possibly think of for having a Transformer that small would be to make them a spy. I’d still think that a Pretender would be incredibly weak against the normal Transformers though. It’s doubtful that the whole spy factor would be worth the risk of getting totally owned by the other Transformers. There would definitely have to be multiple Pretenders to make them even the slightest bit useful. Another thing, wouldn’t Sam and Mikaela notice that Alice doesn’t eat food or that she had a huge tongue? I mean I understand that they’re not that bright, but still. Those kinds of things are pretty hard to miss.
Hopefully this rumor isn’t true. Hopefully this picture is just some of the footage from the new Terminator movie. That would make the most sense. Either that or Michael Bay is being really dumb.
I found an interesting article on Topless Robot today saying how Fox is trying to sue Warner Bros. for making Watchmen. “As big sis Nikki Finke reports, Fox—who for years sat on their old Watchmen movie rights while everyone in hollywood took a stab at making the film—has suddenly decided that Warner Bros.’ upcoming film directed by Zack Snyder is infringing on their Watchmen movie rights, and are suing to get the new version from being released….”-Topless Robot. I always think it’s stupid when a company tries to pull something like this. It’s like way to wait until the movie is completed and then try to stop it from ever being seen. Let’s have them throw millions of dollars down the toilet and then give Fox some more money. That sounds good right 😉 ? I do think it’s kind of ironic though how this just happened right after Warner Bros. decided to postpone the upcoming Harry Potter Movie.
Is it just me or does that guy look shockingly like Batman to anyone else?
On Tuesday a photo showed up in the Gawker. The monster is very odd looking and a lot of people claim it to be photoshopped. There’s also a lot of “eyewitnesses” though and supposedly an old man took it off the beach to mount it on his wall. The tipster that sent it in to the Gawker in the first place was a viral marketer but she says it has nothing to do with any campaign.
It was rumored that this was part of the advertising for a new show on cartoon network called Cryptids Are Real. There are also rumors that it was a washed up experiment from an animal-disease research facility on Plum island which is right offshore from Montauk.
Either way this thing is pretty freaky looking and I wouldn’t put it past companies to make up a fake creature and have some actors to pretend they witnessed it. If it is some diseased animal though, it’s pretty freaky. I wouldn’t want to have a dog or turtle with that disease. Imagine getting bit with that beak!
Edit: Every time I tried to post this pic for awhile it kept breaking…freaky.
I also found out that an energy drink company called venom is offering a reward for anyone who can capture a “Monty”.
Also here’s a video from Fox claiming that it’s not real with Jeff Corwin for support. Lots of people say he looks scared and I agree that he’s stuttering a lot for someone who’s on tv all the time. They say that there’s a government official there with a gun forcing him to talk.
