Watch Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Unicron battle it out in the 1986 animated movie TRANSFORMERS. A 35mm presentation!
Beyond good. Beyond evil. Beyond your wildest imagination. Years before Michael Bay entered into the transforming robot arena, this animated film based on the animated television program delighted (and maybe even scared) a generation of kids. And, set to a synth and metal based soundtrack, Transformers: The Movie has a decidedly dark tone. It’s the year 2005 and there’s a battle raging between the two warring factions of the planet Cybertron: heroic Autobots (led by Optimus Prime) and the evil Decepticons (led by Megatron). While the Autobots try to save their planet from an evil entity that consumes planets hole, Unicron, they’re also defending themselves again the Decepticon’s attack.
