A MACK® truck once again makes it to the big screen, this time in a leading role as MEGATRON, leader of the DECEPTICONS, in the DreamWorks Pictures/Paramount Pictures’ production, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, directed by Michael Bay. In the movie – the third of the Transformers series – MEGATRON takes form as a MACK® Granite™ military truck and leads the Decepticons in an epic battle against the AUTOBOTS.
“Mack trucks are known around the world for their ruggedness and durability,” said Kevin Flaherty, Mack senior vice president, U.S. and Canada. “The Mack Granite is designed to handle tough jobs, making it a great choice for the hard-to-destroy Megatron.”
Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the second Transformers movie to feature Mack trucks. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen included two MACK Pinnacle™ tractors and a MACK Granite mixer truck. “When we were approached again for the third movie, given the nature of the role, we immediately agreed with the selection of a Mack military truck to play the vehicle mode for MEGATRON,” said Flaherty. “Our customers, fans and employees are always excited to see a Mack on the big screen, and, in this case, front and center – it also introduces the brand to an even wider audience.”
