Take That McG - Michael Bay Takes a Shot at Terminator!
That's no Transformer you're looking at, that's a Terminator! Last year the big summer battle was between Iron Man and The Dark Knight, this year the biggest battle is going to be between Terminator Salvation and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Over on his own website, Michael Bay has taken a shot at McG and his "duplicate Transformer size robots." The director wrote an update on the Official Michael Bay Forums hyping up his upcoming Transformers 2 and saying that they've been waiting for all the other big summer movies to "get their stuff out" before they show us the first footage from Transformers.
Okay it's time to turn up the heat on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. We've waited low in the weeds letting all the summer movies get their stuff out. We've seen the great year end movies, and watched the upcoming clips of the upcoming summer fare. We've seen certain movies coming out even trying to duplicate Transformer size robots in their ads. Please, come on.
Well, I promise you we will rock your world with Transformers 2. The fans wanted ROBOTS KICKING ASS - well we got it. Today we are releasing the teaser poster and soon the onslaught will continue with a steady drum beat until June 26th.
I really hope McG fires something back at Michael Bay for that snide comment. This is a battle I would really love to see - McG and his passion versus Michael Bay and his explosions. Hell, I'm excited for this summer just to see how these two movies (and their studios) will fight it out. I think in the end both movies can peacefully co-exist, and that's what will hopefully happen. But I know this isn't the first time I've seen people point out that Terminator Salvation has been stealing the "giant robots" idea right out from under Michael Bay. Then again, I thought most people didn't like Michael Bay? What side are you on?
