Michael Bay Dishes Out Some Crazy Transformers 2 Hype
We've seen that awesome Super Bowl TV spot and we know the full trailer hits this weekend in front of Friday the 13th, so I think it's safe to say that buzz for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is pretty much through the roof at the moment. Our friends at Collider caught up with Michael Bay on the red carpet of the Friday the 13th premiere yesterday and drilled him about all things Transformers 2. Bay says that it's a lot darker than the first one and reveals that the current running time is about 2 hours and 20 minutes. It's a really fun interview and definitely worth watching if you're excited for the new Transformers.
The other great quote from Bay about the sequel was about how they've developed the robots this time around. "It's a great adventure, but the thing that I like about it, is the robots have much more personality," Bay says. "Now we can really get these robots to emote, and it's fun." Check it out:
Just listening to Michael Bay talk about the kind of crazy stuff he pulls off with the military or with the pyramids (see photo here) is pretty remarkable. Even if you hate his movies, this guy really does some impressive stuff with his movies. I'm admittedly one hell of big a Michael Bay fan and I can't wait to see how much he's stepped it up and made things bigger and better in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is again directed by action film superstar Michael Bay of Bad Boys, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, The Island, and Transformers previously. The story and screenplay for the sequel was written by Transformers writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci as well as Ehren Kruger (The Ring, The Brothers Grimm, Blood and Chocolate). Paramount is unleashing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in both IMAX and regular theaters on June 26th this summer. We'll be there!
