Transformers and Friday the 13th remake set in shared universe?

June 28th, 2017 by Dave Bowling Comments

And the prize for the single most bat-crap crazy thing you’ll read all week goes to…

According to “research” carried out by our good buddies at Bloody Disgusting, it seems that one character lins Michael Bay’s Transformers movies and the remake of Friday the 13th his production company Platinum Dunes spat out in 2009. And that pivotal character  is…

Trent DeMarco.

Now I  know what you’re all thinking. You’re thinking, “who the hell is Trent DeMarco?” Well worry not, for we at FTN are nothing if not thorough. Trent was the douchey jock character dating Megan Fox’s finest Megan Fox impression, also known as Mikaela, in the first Transformers movie. He was played by an actor called Travis Van Winkle. Two years later, Van Winkle played another self-obsessed crapwit named Trent in the Friday the `13th remake. And – get this – they’re the same character.

Yeah.

Don’t believe us? Hell, here’s Trent DeMarco’s IMDb page:

Now, I may be just a simple country hyperchicken, but it looks to me like pretty conclusive evidence that the smeghead that lost his girlfriend to Shia the Beouf would later be murdered by Jason Vorhees. Angels and ministers of grace defend us…

On the other hand, it could just be that the name is a trademark of Bay’s, like the name Rice was for Gene Rodenberry, and he was just working it into the film for that reason. The whole thing’s a huge coinkydink, and some of the editors at IMDb are working in the same way I am right now: sat outside a pub, drinking a cold one and writing this on my tablet.

Coz frankly the alternative doesn’t bear thinking about…

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
