‘Transformers’ arise for big screen battle

On July 4 the long awaited live action adaptation of Transformers will make its debut at a cinema near you, and if the buzz is any indication, it’s going to be one of the biggest film of the year. Based on the cartoon from the 80s, and the toy line that’s still going strong, Transformers tells the tale of two rival alien robot groups, the Autobots and the Decepticons, fighting it out on planet Earth.
