A very short and sweet interview with Michael Bay...

:
E! Online caught up with Transformers director Michael Bay at Hollywood Film Festival's Hollywood Awards and asked about the sequel:

So, where do you go with it? How do you up the stakes?
It's not about upping it. It's about still keeping the heart.

Any new characters coming in?
Oh, yeah…a lot of fun stuff. I keep telling the writers, remember the heart and the magic, remember the heart and the magic. It's not about being bigger.

DreamWorks is targeting a June 26, 2009 release date for the follow-up.

Sounds good for short and vague, which would be any project analysis two years before its release.

Gotta buy stock in HASBRO within the next 6 months.

What 'heart and magic'? Is that code for T&A? Or 'explosions and CGI'?

Steven Spielberg's "A boy and his car", the part of the story many people seem to overlook that's the key part of the 1st Transformers Movie.

New Transformers, aircraft carrier and that rumour about Devestator...thats definitely big.
No, remember.....Devastator was in the first movie(Brawl)....so they can't have him in any other movies as multiple robots that make a big one, because that would confuse people.....

See? He's not the ego driven monster that everyone has him pegged to be. It's a shame.

And I'm glad he said what he said...I think he finally gets it now.


Well, listening to the movie commentary, hes still ego driven. But I think he did right by us with the first movie and will do even better with the 2nd!

heart and magic at least you know hes making just to make money and to get lucky that it does well as the first one or not theres not to many directors that care about the film seires but bay sounds like he does and the way hes talking the sequel will be better and bigger than the first no doubt.
Re: Michael Bay Briefly Talks "Transformers 2" With 'E! Online' (420015)

I happy to hear he is looking to keep the same feel of the first move for #2.

I hate it when sequels don't feel like there predecessors. for example: The Matrix sequels, the Pirates sequels, The Riddick movies.

well say whatever you will about Bay, he's the dude who waited almost 10yrs between Bad Boys sequels when he could have easily just spewed another out right away....so at the very least, if he does a sequel he seems to wanna make sure its worthy. now lets hope it doesnt take 10yrs for this but just saying. lol

I was impressed with him when I found out he cut 30 percent of his income to make sure that the film was made in the US with his own crew. I like that loyalty, that he wants to use his own people even if it comes out of his pocket directly.

No, not 'more' humans. He said not to make things bigger. So there won't be more humans, just the same people with the TFs guest starring again ;)

Sounds like we're in for more humans, explosions, T&A, and not enough TFs, and zero character development for the Decepticons. Yippee. :roll:

You know, I didn't get that version of the movie, but I was curious....is his commentary pretty much 2 hours of fan bashing? Because that's what I can imagine it to be.

Lack of character development was also a problem in the first X-Men movie. The problem is that there are so many characters to develop, logically there isn't enough time to develop them. introduce them and give you a basic idea of their character in the first movie, further develop the storyline and characters in the second, and introduce Unicron and Primus in the third one. ANyone else think a CGI space battle between Primus and Unicron would be awesome?

Cool, nice to see Bay atually getting the feeling of the story and the characters, instead of just how many explosions or camera spazzing he has to have.

Ok, yeah you got a point. Maybe I'm just jumping the gun. The disappointment of all the bonus content on the DVD has got me all burnt up about Bay's handling of TFs.

Don't forget the pee and masturbation humor- or the breasts neither! Heck, how about a peeing robot who turns into an aircraft carrier full of breasts! And the 'splosions!

Yeah, yeah- "keep the heart" 'lil bitches.

I agree...the extra features on the DVD were really lame. We'll just let them make it up to us in the second movie.

BTW I have money on a resurrected Jazz in the sequel, thanks to a slowly regenerating AllSpark..:-P

As much as I would love a Devestator, I don't think it's going to be that name seeing the DVD kept Brawl as Devestator and now everyone that isn't into the toys or keeps tabs on what's going on in the interwebs will be like "Why the hell is this guy named Devestator, that was the tank in the first one."

Well, there was Cullen getting into the movie....oh & Megatron....lots of things happened with him due to complaining....he got a better head for starters....not to mention even though Frank Welker wasn't Megs in the movie, he's been Megs for pretty much all other movie-related stuff such as the game & the prequel video that came with the movie.

I'm not saying complaining is always good, but in a lot of cases if there's enough of an outcry, people that care will hear it & at least take it into consideration when making a decision to go with one idea or another.

That's true. Being able to see the positive and negative in both things we like and things we dislike is a good thing.

We do complain an awful lot, though!

No way! He admitted alot that the fans were right on alot of stuff.
Really? wow. That might be worth getting someday then. I ended up getting the version that had the prequel movie, & it only came with the standard version. Does anybody know if the commentary is on the HD-DVD version?


I bought the walmart version too, but when i opened it and saw the regular edition movie, i returned the movie and kept the prequal box part lol. Then I bought the target special edition one. Yeah, the HD one does have the commentary.
Oh good. I was planning on getting that with an HD-dvd upgrade for my 360 for christmas....If I can scrape the funds together to do that....

I don't have anything constructive to add. I just wanted to see how many quote boxes we could get before the servers blew up...


Oh im sure we can keep this going for a while. Did anyone else seem a bit disapointed by the prequal walmart version? Typical walmart quality i suppose.

It's not about upping it. It's about still keeping the heart.

Any new characters coming in?
Oh, yeah…a lot of fun stuff. I keep telling the writers, remember the heart and the magic, remember the heart and the magic. It's not about being bigger.

DreamWorks is targeting a June 26, 2009 release date for the follow-up.


See? He's not the ego driven monster that everyone has him pegged to be. It's a shame.

And I'm glad he said what he said...I think he finally gets it now.


Well, listening to the movie commentary, hes still ego driven. But I think he did right by us with the first movie and will do even better with the 2nd!
You know, I didn't get that version of the movie, but I was curious....is his commentary pretty much 2 hours of fan bashing? Because that's what I can imagine it to be.

Can we get it to the point that there's one letter in each line? My Target exclusive came with a prequel minicomic...even had Wreckage in it. I think the WalMart one had an "animated" prequel.

FFS guys cut it out with the quoting. That sort of crap has pissed the Mods (and other members who don't want to scroll through endless pages of worthless posts) off in the past.

What? I'm complaining? Tough shit, I seem to recall just the last page that complaining is part of the internet. ;;)

Dammit Burn, I was just about to get vertigo. You know I cant handle complex thought, I needed something to take me away. :-x

But um yeah...Will there ever be a thread about Bay where people don't whine about piss jokes or at least find something new to whine about?
