Though we have now seen quite a bit of video for Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, the film's actual plot still remains unclear. With the film's release now steadily approaching, screenwriters Kurtzman and Orci are finally beginning to speak up.
Transformers 2 Plot Points
The good people at LatinoReview happened to catch a segment on Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen in Creative Screenwriting Magazine. I've never heard of it, but it did land quite the scoop on the film's plot.
When the story begins, the Autobots and the military have been waging a secret war against the Decpticons. As more of the giant robots continue to resurface, though, it becomes apparent the Transformers have been part of Earth's history for longer than they'd led mankind to believe. One group of bureaucrats even womders if the Decepticons are only appearing because of the Autobot presence. Desperate not to leave Earth undefended, Optimus Prime turns to Sam and asks him to become a human advocate, someone who will convince mankind that the Autobots should be allowed to saty. Sam refuses to believe he can help, though, wanting to go to college and live a normal life - as normal as possible with the strange thoughts and visions that have haunted him since being exposed to the All Spark's primal energies two years earlier. Alas, Sam's refusal will have harsh consequences for himself, the Autobots and possibly the entire world. The Decepticons fallen leader, Megatron has been resurrected and brings with him an ancient evil from the Transformers own history.
After Transformers I had assumed that Earth had some significance considering that the Allspark was placed here at one time or other. You can learn more about this significance here.
Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen opens to theaters on June 26th.
