Bay sez "This one is a more mature storyline, definitely darker, more emotional in the end. You feel the stakes are higher because it takes place in an American city."

Sounds like not only does he want to forget about ROTF but the first one as well. 8-}

Now where did that climatic battle take place in the first movie,....hmmmm :-?

You know, it's dawned on me that the biggest problem 90 percent of the folks have with Michael Bays interviews is that you actually have to be able to understand how a mind like his works. The more of his interviews I read or watch, the more I realize that he is an awful lot like a former business partner of mine in terms of how he approaches/conceptualizes tasks and how he deals with other people.

Awww, screw it. I'm wasting my time. The rest of you cattle just keep on mooing and distributing your bull****.
If you haven't gotten it by now, most of you never will. :BOOM:

URRRGGH I was afraid that Brains would be in the movie. I guess Wheeljack is a goner then, unless by some incredible coincidence Carly's car is him.

Also, Topspin is apparently voiced by Bill Fagerbakke. What gives?

Well, there's an alien invasion which sounds good...however, with a nod to true realism, in the midst of all this Sam is looking for a job. This will be his JOURNEY in finding employment... I cannot WAIT!!! oh and the humour from ROTF..OF COURSE IT'S BACK!! :BANG_HEAD:

This man has been given the chance to redeem himself that Joel Schumacher was denied in the Batman franchise. Why is he already telling us to mentally prepare for more of the same :???:

I don't know what's causing it, it may be the heat or the fact that i've slept only few-to-three hours or I'm just not the brightest mind, but I'm actually starting to like 'the bombardic director' M. Bay after reading a few of these.

As for the movie: That sounds so interesting I can't immagine the tremors goin' through me when I'm gonna step into the cinema to watch DOTM in the summer.

Not defending the twins, but I am a little aggravated that they will just not be in the film considering that they were the two bots with the most characterization. It just makes ROTF even more irrelevant IMO.
