AceShowbiz - Monday, June 8, has seen the world premiere celebration of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen". Taking place at the Roppongi Hills in Tokyo, Japan, the special screening event was kicked off with the arrival of the film's director Michael Bay and stars as well as other Japanese celebrities on the red carpet.
Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Isabel Lucas, Tyrese Gibson and Ramon Rodriguez were all present for the occasion. Arriving at the event, they were all welcomed by Bumblebee, who previously wowed the gathering crowd when it suddenly transformed from a Chevrolet Camaro into a 16-foot high Autobot after a huge puff of smoke.
Fox also stole the attention on the special night, bringing Hollywood glamor and sexiness to the event. The actress who portrays Mikaela Banes in the action fantasy movie wore a striking figure-hugging purple gown with a thigh-high slit. Aside from posing for the press, she also revealed on the red carpet that she thanked Michael Bay for giving her the role in "Transformers".
"It's mind-blowing," she said of the matter as quoted by The Daily Mail. "I think it has opened a lot of doors for me career-wise, but there is a certain loss of anonymity, like leaving your house and having people take your picture all the time. That is a different kind of life."
Slated to be released on June 24, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" comes from director Michael Bay and the screenwriting team of Ehren Kruger, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. It follows the story about two clashing robot clans on Earth. This time, the heroes will be facing a stronger and more powerful villain by the name of the Fallen and the new enemy forces them to bring back their foe Megatron to defeat him. Hours before the world premiere, Bay has announced that the IMAX version of the movie will be longer than the one played in traditional theaters.
