Michael Bay is gonna throw you off!!!

Postby jacksonspade » Sat Nov 10, 2007 2:07 pm

Hey, Y'all. I don't know if this had been posted but I found it up at superherohype.com:

Transformers director Michael Bay is looking to avoid what he had to go through for the first film. For the sequel, they will be leaking false info to fans to keep them off track of what they are really doing. He tells Rotten Tomatoes:

One thing I do know is I know how to screw them up more," said Bay. "We're going to leak a lot of false information all over the place. I now know their game. They're going to get a lot of script treatments that they think are going to be the script. They will never see the script. We've got scripts and treatments written up that we're going to leak. No one's going to know."

Scoopers who currently think they're sitting on a hot one, here's a head's up. "There's one out that's fake right now. There are going to be many others."

Transformers 2 is scheduled for a June 26, 2009 release.

All I can say is this...I sure as hell hope that they dont waste a bunch of time on energy on anything "fake." Think about it... they're using resources that could be utilized to make the movie BETTER!!

Honestly, it pisses me off when people reveal and ruin stuff for the rest of us. Thats why I AVOIDED anything having to do with the Movie till I saw it. The only thing I DID try and find out about were the toys.

Hats of to your creative "fakes," Mr. Bay... let's just hope the fakes 1) dont tax the already stretched creative resources out there and 2) It will suck if some of the decoys turn out to be better that the actual one when it comes around.

Haha! Cruel, but smart, if true.

I like the idea at least.

PS- Bay should just phish for some of us out here on Seibertron, send a little cash out way and we'll make 1,000 of fakes and decoys...and ours will probably sound better in premise than anything those HIGH paid writers whip out!!

I have some free time Mr. Bay!!!

Best. Idea. Ever.

Actually, I think I used it for one of my comics once. I had a character I was going to kill off, and when I announced that I was going to kill them, I included another character's name as a supposed "Clue."

Hehe, useful to keep people off your trail. And it's easier than you might think, just write up a couple of faked pages (Takes all of five minutes), make a dummy e-mail account (And making sure that the IP address is near DreamWorks, or something like "friend_of_a_friend@dreamworks.com") and send it to AICN, or SuperHeroHype.

Fake scripts, that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Oh tee-hee, I'm a tricky trickster and I'm going to throw you off my trail. Who cares? Spend the time, money, and effort on real resources that will make the movie better, not throw off people that are inevitably going to get a hold of a leaked script anyways. Maybe if you save every dime that goes to pay people for writing fake scripts, you can afford the CGI to have the actual Transformer characters perform their best lines with them on screen instead of someone else hiding in a ditch.

**** with the heads of fanboys. And considering how some of them behaved with the first movie they truly do deserve to be **** with.

I didn't want the movie spoilt for me but I found it hard to avoid when some people freely discussed the early script to the first movie.

You know what, good for him! And even better, good for us.

I say that because I did my best to avoid as many spoilers as possible for TF1, but with the amount of information out there, even in unrelated threads, I was getting information.

I wasn't happy about that, I wanted to see the movie fresh and not go in knowing every detail, and sadly, knowing every detail is just what happened :sad:

So go on, keep us guessing, give us goose chases, but more so, give us a good follow up that will entertain us with things we didn't already know!

I know not everyone feels this way, but for me...

Bay is my freaking hero. He sure knows how to mess with the one thing Transformers fans don't have: Patience.

Plus, alot of people deserve getting punished like this.

So, basically we shouldn't bother talking about it all then.

So can we shut down the Movie Forum then?

Front paged and credited!

I just hope he doesn't do this with the bot designs. The story I don't care for, but when I see a new TF, I want to be sure it's a character who will be in the film, so I have time to warm up to the design.

I love the design style and everything, but sometimes they take an awful long time to warm up to (Starscream, Megatron...)

Im sure he'll mess up some were. And im sure that there are people out there that will get a hold of the real info. Hell he's saying this so he might just leak real info and because of this we'll think its fake. This could get interesting.

Didn't he already mislead us about the first one? Y'know... hyping it to be something great and for the fans, blah, blah, blah. I just hope if the GI Joe or He-Man movies get the go-ahead they're more faithful to the look and soul of the source material.

WOO HOO...my first front page, credited story...my weekend is made. Anyway, to all the Bay-Haters, at least he is passionate about making the series. It's not a total G1 take on the material, but then again nothing has been G1 except, wait for it...wait for it...G1!!! No one does big, dumb action better than Michael Bay!

So....instead of leting everybody warm up to all the crap they're going to throw at everybody & get over it, they're going to keep everybody clueless untill the movie actually comes out, see some drastic unnecessary changes to something they feel very passionately about, & have critics & words-of-mouth throw this movie into the same catagory as Highlander 2.
