Transformers sequel gets UK premiere

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, UK premiere

Story by Jack Foley

MEGAN Fox stunned fans in a sexy black dress as she and co-stars attended the UK premiere of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in London’s Leicester Square on Monday (June 15, 2009).

The screen beauty blew kisses to fans, posed for photos and signed autographs along with actors Shia LaBeouf, Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel and John Turturro at the lavish premiere.

Director Michael Bay also joined his team on a special blue Transformers carpet, while a giant yellow Bumblebee robot also put in a special appearance.

The premiere was held in aid of the Starlight Wish charity and Fox and LaBeouf also made one little boy’s night by posing for photos with him. Starlight Wish-child Kai Hamilton donned a yellow outfit specially for the occasion and was visibly delighted to be photoed with his film star heroes.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is the sequel to Transformers and picks up the story shortly after its climax. It’s bigger, louder and even more spectacular than its predecessor, with an explosive finale set among Egypt’s pyramids.

Speaking at a press conference earlier in the day, director Bay said securing access to such locations had been one of the highlights of the shoot, even though it had been touch and go on several occasions.

Shia LaBeouf, meanwhile, described doing blockbusters such as Transformers as pantomime and recalled a stunt that almost cost him an eye, while Megan Fox spoke of her embarrassment at constantly being labelled the most beautiful woman in the world.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opens in UK cinemas on Friday, June 19 – one week ahead of the US.
