The Global Film Village:Transformers 2 thrills audiences, Big Toys Equal Big Box office by Marla Lewin

Transformers thrills audience with Airplanes, Cars, and Giant Battling Robots. Big Toys Equal Big Box office
Tonight was the U.S. Premiere of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen as part of the Los Angeles Film Festival.  Shia La Beouf attended the premiere in Westwood, with his mother, Shayna.  It was a star studded event with the entire cast in attendance including Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John TurturroSome celebrities with films in the festival who didn't attend their own premieres showed up for this major event, including one of Shia's mentors Jon Voight.
Sam Witwicky's (Shia LaBeouf) parents in the film provide the humor as well as the pathos.  His character Sam, is headed to college, and his girlfriend played by Megan Fox is considering breaking up with him since he is leaving town.  He asks her to join him, and she realizes they have been through a lot in their past, and she cannot give him up.  
They are once again off on  a journey to assist the good robots, discover ancient symbols, and save the world. Michael Bay uses an enormous palette to tell his story. Action is set against large cities and even the pyramids. The cast and crew shot in Egypt, Jordan, New Mexico, San Diego, Paris and on the Playa Vista set.  
Children of all ages will want to see the film at least twice to absorb all the special effects and transforming trucks, cars, planes, and other eye candy. 
The film is already number one internationally and looks to be the film of the summer.
