Denise Dorman gives us an heads up regarding some news of an eMail sent out by director Michael Bay on May 4th. Apparently, Bay was upset by the ad campaign for the film, claiming that it was a "abject failure". View the entire article and eMail for yourself by clicking here.
Michael Bay has updated his blog website, letting us know how his time in Russia went, and also adds in a comment or too about the Revenge of the Fallen IMAX experience. Here's what he has to say:
Back from Moscow. Fresh from a visit to the former KGB, with second in command. He told me in his office I'm one of 10 American's, one being a President, to ever be allowed inside what is now called the FSB. The only reason was he heard I was in town and he is a fan of my films.
Last night with my crew I saw the IMAX version. Once you get used to the giant format and your eyes adjust, it's an awesome experience. I have been waiting until the film was final to judge, and I'm really pleased. You have to make a point to see it this way - It could be the very best way to see Transformers.
C'mon guys critics? Give me a break. Do you all have short term memory? They killed the first one, and it still became a world-wide smash. I made this for the you, the audience!
simonfurman.wordpress- Long-time Transformers scribe and fan, Simon Furman discusses the UK Revenge of the Fallen comic, and the UK exclusive comic strips involving many movie characters.
"IT BEGINS AGAIN…
June 18, 2009
With the official UK release date of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen now looming, Titan have unveiled the first issue of its all-new Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen comic (issue #1 on sale today, June 18th). Re-starting from issue #1 the premiere issue comes with a fresh new look and an all-new (UK exclusive) comic strip, which ties into the movie and spotlights the Twins, Skids and Mudflap (along with a whole host of other new characters, including Soundwave, Ransack, Ravage, Sideways, Grindor, Sideswipe and more). The strip is written by me with art by Jon Davis-Hunt, who’s undertaking ongoing art duties on the title! And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s more comic strip (in the shape of All Hail Megatron), free dog tags, free sticker album (and stickers), character profiles and competitions."

An article that appears in today's Philadelphia Inquirer features quotes from ROTF Producer Ian Bryce on his experiences shooting Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in Philadelphia as well as several other locations. The following is an excerpt.
By phone from London, where the megahit-to-be had a prerelease premiere this week, Bryce is catching his breath after working on the Autobots vs. Decepticons spectacle for nearly two years. The film, a follow-up to the $708 million-grossing Transformers (that's global box office), opens everywhere Wednesday.
"This one was quite an adventure, because when we started there was no script," Bryce acknowledges. "So, as Mike and the writers were busy writing, we essentially had a seven-page treatment that we knew was going to represent the script - and we had to start preparing the movie physically from that document.
"That included making a blueprint for where we thought we were going to shoot. We started scouting locations before we had a real solid idea of what was going to be in [the movie]. . . . Mike said, 'Look, it feels like we need this . . . kind of location.' He's great about that. He's very pragmatic about making those choices.
"And as you'll see when you watch the film, there were lots of locations, we shot on four continents, and so it was very challenging logistically and operationally."

Comingsoon.net- Michael Bay and the cast of the soon-to-be released sequel Revenge of the Fallen, answer questions about filming, the twins, workouts, injuries, Imax, DVD extras, working with the military, President Obama's role in the movie, and more after they got back from their international press tour in Moscow.
The cast comes off as being very fun and comfortable with one another, and of course, does not reveal much to do with the actual plot.
Michael Bay reveals things that have already been shared like the extra footage time and scenes in the Imax version, and that he is tired of doing giant robot movies for now, and needs a break. And of course, we do know that he said he would be back for the third installment.
