Today Michael Bay held a private Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen screening for Steven Spielberg on the Sony lot. Here is what Bay had to say about the 147 minute final cut:
“Steven Spielberg sat next to me in a big 100 person theater at Sony today,” wrote Bay on his online forum. “There were 98 empty seats. The lights came up after we just watched my cut of Revenge of the Fallen. He turned to me and said ‘It’s awesome’ He felt this movie was better then the first – and probably my best, who knows – at this point in a movie you start to lose your objectivity. I just hope the fans like it.”
What a surprise coming from executive producer of the film. There will also be a new trailer before X-Men Origins: Wolverine on May 1st. I’m looking forward to Revenge of the Fallen in a popcorn sense. I figure it’s not too hard to improve from the first film. I found out there is a screening in Philly at the end of April. Worth a 6 hour drive to see it a month early? Maybe.
Are you looking forward to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen?
