Paramount was the only motion picture studio to host a panel last year with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem as that pic’s filmmakers were permitted to show up during the actors strike.

The CG-animated Transformers One follows the untold origin story of Optimus Prime and Megatron, who were friends before they were enemies, only to change the fate of CyberTron forever.

Also starring are Scarlett Johansson, Steve Buscemi, with Laurence Fishburne, and Jon Hamm. Pic is also produced with New Republic Pictures. Producers are di Bonaventura, Tom DeSanto and Don Murphy, Michael Bay, Mark Vahradian and Aaron Dem. EPs are Steven Spielberg, Zev Foreman, Olivier Dumont, Brian Oliver, B.J. Farmer and Matt Quigg.

The Transformers feature franchise has grossed $5.3 billion at the global box office.
