Michael Bay gives Transformers 3 update, helps Haiti

01.26.2010

Over at his official blog, mayhem maestro Michael Bay gives a brief update on the progress of TRANSFORMERS 3: EXPLODO GONZO ROBOGASM.

"Busy scouting - Chicago, Detroit, and Washington D.C. for Transformers last week. Things are going well. The script is feeling very different from the other two."

I'm praying to the Allspark or the Matrix of Leadership or whatever that "very different" translates to "doesn't cause my brain to petrify". Bay previously described the third movie's script as "a nice crescendo ending" (perhaps unaware that a crescendo usually builds in volume, which seems wholly inconceivable after TRANSFORMERS 2).

And between determining the location of the next cinematic devastation, Bay took a break to reach deep into his heart/pockets and assist with the reality kind:

"I ended my scout down in Miami this weekend to load my plane with 14 Florida Surgeons, specialists in various fields and flew them down to Haiti. We then returned with a planeload of a team of exhausted Miami Fire rescue. It is proving very difficult for these volunteers to get back home. They say the news hardly gives the true scope of what really happened."

Extra Tidbit: The aftermath of the Haiti earthquake is too depressing. I'm going to scroll back to the top of the article.

Any TF news is good news

I don't understand all the hate for TF2. It was a f'ing summer popcorn movie, by the king of popcorn movies no less. You cannot expect cinematic gold from a Michael Bay movie that's based on toys/cartoons. I just hope they don't go 3D for the next one

Agree with X-Kid, TF1 was awesome and TF2 wasn't that bad - just not as good as I personally would like to be. For TF3, the difference maybe less action but it's Bay so if there's any action scene he's gonna go wild with it. But can he go further? I mean, TF3 would make lots of money worldwide but would he still be interested in TF4? I doubt that. He might get tired by then - no more venues to blow up, hahaha.

Maybe a script that feels different means it will require more acting and less lame one liners. I don't know what I'm thinking, this is Michael Bay.

I might stream this movie for free after the DVD has been ripped and uploaded; but I won't pay a dime to see it otherwise.

Not to sound like a tight ass but even though they're garbage as films they are quite the spectacle. Gotta say that I do enjoy the concept of big ass robots blowing shit up. One thing I really hope they go for with this one would be the introduction of Unicron. How bad ass would that be? Autobots and Deceps forming a team against him like Blade and the Vamps in "Blade 2"? Just imagine Unicron stomping the shit out of city in a climactic battle... AWESOME!!

I enjoyed my theater experience after the first Transformers.. it was fun, dumb, and had some really cool action scenes.. the second left a sour taste in my mouth that made me never wanna come back. However, if he can make it more like the first and tone it down a bit, I might be back for a fun summer blockbuster.
