With deadlines jeopardized by possible strikes by the Directors Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild, Bay managed to finish the production on time with the help of previsualization and a scriptment by his writers David Marconi, Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and series newcomer Ehren Kruger. Shooting took place between May and September 2008, with locations in Egypt, Jordan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and California, as well as air bases in New Mexico and Arizona. It is the last film in the series to star Megan Fox, and is also the last film in the series to be co-produced by DreamWorks Pictures, leaving Paramount Pictures as the sole distributor of its future sequels, starting with Dark of the Moon.
Revenge of the Fallen premiered on June 8, 2009 in Tokyo and was released on June 24, 2009 in the United States. Critical reception was largely negative, with critics considering it to be inferior to the first film. Critics panned the film’s script, rude humor, characters, performances, and runtime, while praising the visual effects, action scenes, score, and the performances of Peter Cullen and Hugo Weaving. The film won three Golden Raspberry Awards at the 30th Golden Raspberry Awards ceremony and became the highest-grossing film to win the Worst Picture award. The film surpassed its predecessor at the box office, grossing a total of $402.1 million in the US and Canada and $434.2 million in other territories, for a total of $836.3 million worldwide, making it the 37th highest-grossing domestic film and fourth-highest of the year worldwide. With over 11 million home media sales in 2009, it was also the top-selling film of the year in the United States. It was followed by Dark of the Moon in 2011.
In 17,000 B.C., the Seven Primes travel across the universe to create Energon with star-absorbing machines called Sun Harvesters, which destroy stars in order to collect their raw material. One of them defies the rule to never to destroy a planet with life by establishing a Sun Harvester on Earth, earning him the name “The Fallen”. The Fallen is confronted by the other Primes, who imprison him before he can harvest the Sun using the Matrix of Leadership. The rest of the Primes then sacrifice themselves to hide the Matrix in an unknown location.
In the present, two years after the Battle of Mission City, the Autobots and the U.S. military have formed the Non-biological Extraterrestrial Species Treaty (NEST), a classified international task force in order to eliminate the surviving Decepticons. In Shanghai, the Autobots intercept two Decepticons, Demolishor and Sideways. Sideways is killed by the Autobot Sideswipe, while Optimus Prime kills Demolishor, but not before he warns them of the Fallen’s return. At NEST’s secure headquarters in Diego Garcia, National Security Adviser, Theodore Galloway, concludes that since Megatron’s corpse is at the bottom of the Laurentian Abyss and the last-known AllSpark shard is secured in their base, the Decepticons must still be on Earth solely to hunt the Autobots. The Decepticon Soundwave hacks into a military satellite, overhears this information, and sends Ravage to retrieve the shard.
Meanwhile, Sam Witwicky is preparing to attend college, leaving his girlfriend Mikaela Banes and guardian Bumblebee behind. He finds a smaller AllSpark shard in his hoodie and picks it up, causing him to see Cybertronian symbols. As a side effect, the shard’s energy brings various kitchen appliances to life, who then attack Sam and his family. After Bumblebee kills the living appliances, Sam gives the shard to Mikaela, who later captures the Decepticon Wheelie as he attempts to steal it. At the Laurentian Abyss, the Constructicons resurrect Megatron using the stolen shard and parts ripped off from one of their own allies. Megatron then travels to one of Saturn’s moons, where he reunites with his second in command, Starscream, and his master, the Fallen, who orders him to capture Sam alive and kill Optimus, as Primes are the only Transformers who can defeat the Fallen.
