Spielberg Says Transformers 2 is Michael Bay's Best Movie?
Laugh all you want, I'm fuckin' excited for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen! Michael Bay just posted a "60 Day" update on his official forums and talked briefly about showing the movie to executive producer Steven Spielberg for the first time. "[He] sat next to me in a big 100 person theater at Sony today. There were 98 empty seats. The lights came up after we just watched my cut of Revenge of the Fallen. He turned to me and said 'It's awesome'. He felt this movie was better then the first - and probably my best, who knows - at this point in a movie you start to lose your objectivity. I just hope the fans like it."
Bay added that with 60 days left, they're racing to finish. "It's 12 at night and we are still working here in the edit room. Everyone at ILM and [Digital Domain] are killing themselves right now, they are doing a stellar job on the effects." He also mentions that the next full trailer will be on X-Men Origins: Wolverine, so make sure you head to theaters on May 1st, if at least just to see the new trailer, which we're sure is going to be awesome. As for Spielberg's statement, well, this is only Michael Bay's eighth movie, so maybe it could be his best? I think before we agree, we need to figure out what his best movie is right now. Thoughts?
