"Transformers" fan-made trailer script

Recommended Posts

Author's Notes

I came up with a story for my own version of a Transformers movie, one that's perhaps a bit closer to Generation 1 than the Michael Bay movie (although I did name the main human character "Sam Witwicky" instead of "Spike" because that made for a better first name).

 

Enjoy!

 

TRANSFORMERS

fan-made trailer

 

FADE IN

 

Frantic camera footage of a jet performing a bombing run on a military base. It's hard to tell, but it's firing something besides bullets and missiles.

 

SOLDIER'S DISTRESS CALL (v.o.)

Taking fire! Taking fire! Send in reinforce--

 

The soldier's words are lost in an explosion.

 

FADE TO BLACK

 

INSERT STUDIO LOGOS -- Paramount Pictures, Dreamworks, Hasbro, etc.

 

FADE IN

 

On two teenagers making out in a car. The boy is SAM WITWICKY. The girl is CARLY BURKE. Explosions from the nearby military base interrupt them.

 

SAM

Whoa -- did you see that?

 

CUT TO

 

Sam and Carly are standing by Carly's car on the side of the road. Headlights from another vehicle illuminate them; Sam is seen wearing a t-shirt with the word "SPIKE" printed on it.

 

CARLY

...Hello?

 

A yellow VW Beetle approaches them. It looks badly damaged, and it's leaving a trail of fuel behind it -- but not Earth fuel.

 

VW BEETLE (weakly)

Help ... me...

 

The holographic driver in the VW flickers and dissolves. Off Sam and Carly's astonished reaction.

 

FADE TO BLACK.

 

SAM (v.o.)

Is this thing ... alive?

 

FADE IN

On Sam and Carly standing next to Sam's father MR. WITWICKY, a mechanic. All three are standing in Mr. Witwicky's garage, amazed at what they're seeing.

 

MR. WITWICKY

What ... did you bring into my garage?

 

The car splits apart, folds in on itself, raises itself upright...

...and transforms into the mechanoid lifeform BUMBLEBEE.

 

CLOSEUP as Bumblebee crouches close to Sam, its 'face' transforming to look more human.

 

FADE TO BLACK

 

OPTIMUS PRIME (v.o.)

We have been at war for millions of your years...

 

FADE IN

 

On a view of Earth from space. The NEMESIS, a massive spaceship, careens toward the planet, lit up by atmospheric entry.

 

OPTIMUS PRIME (v.o.)

...spreading out from our own planet and into others...

 

DISSOLVE TO

 

Tight closeup of the Autobot symbol on a white-and-red ambulance parked on the side of the street in a residential neighborhood.

 

DISSOLVE TO

 

Tight closeup of the Decepticon symbol on a dark blue cassette player in the Witwicky Garage.

 

OPTIMUS (v.o.)

...infiltrating other societies...

 

DISSOLVE TO

 

A group of road construction vehicles part at night. A scanning laser washes over a bulldozer.

 

DISSOLVE TO

 

The side of a highway. Another scanning laser washes over a parked highway patrol car.

 

OPTIMUS (v.o.)

...in order to further combat each other.

 

CUT TO

 

Sam's father, badly injured, being carefully loaded into RATCHET, the Autobot ambulance.

 

BUMBLEBEE (v.o.)

You have to understand, it wasn't supposed to be this way.

 

DISSOLVE TO

 

A distant sector of space. Several starships and flying Transformers -- Autobot and Decepticon alike -- are engaged in a heated battle. The NEMESIS takes a massive blow.

 

 

BUMBLEBEE (v.o.)

What started out as a conflict between two factions...

 

 

DISSOLVE BACK TO

 

Ratchet on Earth. Inside the ambulance, Carly sees a giant bulldozer (SCRAPPER) in the rearview mirror, following them onto the highway.

 

BUMBLEBEE (v.o.)

...escalated into something ... we couldn't have foreseen.

 

FADE TO BLACK

 

We hear the roar of a jet engine.

 

FADE IN

 

STARSCREAM, the F-22 Raptor jet from the beginning of the trailer, transforms to robot mode in mid-flight.

 

SAM (v.o.)

Don't you care?

 

CUT TO

 

The military base, pre-attack. A scanning laser washes over a tank.

 

SAM (v.o.)

All this destruction...

 

DISSOLVE TO

 

A similar tank outside a power plant. It transforms into none other than the Decepticon's leader MEGATRON.

 

SAM (v.o.)

Doesn't it even bother you what it's doing to our planet?

 

Megatron raises his heavy arm-mounted cannon and fires it off-camera.

 

CUT TO

 

Sam stands in front of a red mack truck, which transforms into the Autobots' leader OPTIMUS PRIME.

 

OPTIMUS (v.o.)

We are Autobots.

 

Tight closeup of Optimus' face.

 

OPTIMUS PRIME

We care more than you can imagine.

 

CUT TO

 

The five primary Autobots in this movie line up in vehicle mode: besides Optimus, Bumblebee, and Ratchet, we see a white-and-black police car and a blue-and-white Formula-1 racecar with the words "MIRAGE RACING".

 

OPTIMUS (v.o.)

And we will protect you and your world from the Decepticons ... no matter the cost.

 

CUT TO

 

The Witwicky Garage. The tape deck ejects a black cassette, which enlarges and transforms in midair into RAVAGE -- a panther-shaped 'bot the size of a motorcycle -- and pounces on Sam's father. Sam and Carly react in the background.

 

SAM

Dad!

 

The Decepticon tape deck enlarges and transforms as well -- into Megatron's communications officer, SOUNDWAVE.

 

CUT TO

 

The blue-and-white Formula-1 racecar, MIRAGE, takes off like a rocket, tires squealing.

 

MIRAGE (v.o.)

These humans get into so much trouble, don't they?

 

CUT TO

 

The police car, PROWL, arrives at the Witwicky Garage. His holo-driver vanishes as he transforms into his robot form.

 

CUT TO

 

Mirage roaring onto the highway to catch up with Scrapper, Ratchet, and Ratchet's human cargo.

 

RATCHET (v.o.)

Don't worry, he's one of ours.

 

CUT TO

 

Carly, in Ratchet's passenger seat, watches in mounting panic as Mirage weaves through traffic.

 

CARLY

Could somebody tell him he's not blending?

 

CUT TO

 

The bottom of the Pacific Ocean. The Decepticons descend upon the Nemesis starship, scanning it and shining spotlights on the vessel's damaged exterior.

 

RATCHET (v.o.)

The Decepticons on that ship are in stasis lock.

 

CUT TO

 

The flooded interior of the Nemesis. Stasis-locked Decepticons float in the dark water. Starscream shines a spotlight on one robot in particular ... and on its Autobot symbol.

 

RATCHET (v.o.)

When the ship was lost, it was carrying a prisoner. One of our scientists.

 

CUT TO

 

Now that the Nemesis has been drained and its auxilliary power has been restored, we have a better look at the Autobot scientist, still in stasis but hooked up to more wiring than a television studio. He is PERCEPTOR, a red-and-black Transformer with a telescope-like apparatus mounted on his shoulder.

 

RATCHET (v.o.)

There's no limit to the amount of information they could pry from him...

 

Scrapper examines the dormant form of one of his Constructicon teammates.

 

RATCHET (v.o.)

...and once the rest of them are revived...

 

CUT TO

 

A closeup of Ratchet at the Autobot's hideout.

 

RATCHET

...your planet will be in even MORE trouble.

 

Sam and Carly react to this with dread.

 

SAM

How many Decepticons are we talking about, here?

 

CUT TO

 

Starscream leading a squadron of similar jets -- his SEEKERS team -- on a bombing run.

 

DISSOLVE TO

 

Soundwave, with Ravage at his side, opens his chestplate to eject three more Decepticon cassettes, which transform into two robot-shaped agents RUMBLE and FRENZY, and the condor-shaped LASERBEAK.

 

DISSOLVE TO

 

Scrapper and five other Constructicons in the process of forming what looks like a combined robot.

 

FADE TO BLACK.

 

FADE BACK TO

 

Bumblebee answers Sam's question so Ratchet won't have to.

 

BUMBLEBEE

Way too many.

 

CUT TO

 

Several action shots from throughout the movie:

 

- Mirage and Scrapper's fight on the freeway causes a six-car pileup.

- Starscream in an aerial dogfight with three US Air Force jets.

- Ratchet parked in ambulance mode, revealing an energy gun turrent that slides out from the side of his chassis.

- Bumblebee scrambling to avoid being stepped on by Devastator; a battle-weathered Optimus Prime approaching Megatron.

 

OPTIMUS PRIME

One shall stand...

 

DISSOLVE TO

 

Optimus lying down, barely active. His chestplate opens to reveal a circular device which would be recognizable to old-school Transformers fans: the Autobot Matrix of Leadership.

 

OPTIMUS PRIME (v.o.)

...one shall fall.

 

CUT BACK TO

 

Optimus and Megatron charging toward each other. The two leaders clash, resulting on a metal-on-metal collision that echoes long after the screen FADES TO BLACK.

 

INSERT TRANSFORMERS MOVIE LOGO

 

CUT TO

 

The Witwicky Garage. Sam's father is lying on a gurney underneath Bumblebee, trying to work on the Autobot's undercarriage -- which is noticeably different from that of a typical VW Beetle.

 

BUMBLEBEE

Hey, hey--! Watch the hands!

 

MR. WITWICKY

Oh, uh ... sorry.
