It looks like Michael Bay has brought some ‘Logic’ to TRANSFORMERS THE DARKSIDE OF THE MOON as Mr Spock aka Leonard Nimoy has joined the cast in Post Production! He’s been a scientist, explorer, author,poet,musician and now he will voice Sentinel Prime in the third installment of The Transformers franchise.
Sentinel Prime the predecessor to Optimus Prime and we do see Sentinel in the teaser trailer, where we see his wrecked body when the Apollo 11 astronauts brought him back to earth disguise as a firetruck. The veteren actor is however no stranger to the franchise as he voice Galvatron in the 1986 Hasbro animation and this could have been his third involvement as Michael Bay tried to get him onboard for Revenge Of The Fallen but stalled as he beleived he could pay the actor properly.
“I was too scared to ask him,” the director says. “Plus, he’s married to Susan Bay, who’s a cousin of mine. So I had to be careful. I’ve met him at family functions. But he told me, ‘I would be honored. I’m glad to be back!’”
Movie 2 is the only movie out of the franchise I actually watched in a cinema and its was bad and the reviews prove it and we know there was so many problems in and out side the movie too, but what would get us all interested in the third movie? Hopefully Bay has learned valuable lessons from the previous movie and early indications things are more positive like the story arc of the the Apollo 11 astronauts bringing Sentinel Prime to earth though a small part of the movie it intertwines with Earth space history too. Bay has also indicated that the robots will have more heart and soul another sign he wants to distance the new movie from number 2:
“The robots have more character in this movie. Much more. You really understand their struggle, on both sides actually,” Bay says.
