Yet Another Transformers 2 Update

Transformers 2 buzz is getting very crazy, very quick. So here’s a little update on what’s been going on with Michael Bay and the gang. Three days ago, Michael Bay told haters to beware on his blog. He also mentioned that the final cut of the movie, at that time, wasn’t even completed yet! And this was written on the same day as the premiere of the movie in Tokyo, Japan. Another thing he mentioned was that there are 4 scenes in Revenge of the Fallen that were shot with IMAX cameras on 70mm film. Oh, and there are a total of 42 robots in the movie. I can see a lot of people’s eyes popping out of their sockets right about now. Below is the blog post by Michael Bay himself.

Hey everyone,

In Japan today. After a month and half seven days a week most days going till midnight me and my crew have just about finished Transformers. I have never seen such a level of dedication from every crew member in a movie before.

Even today after the press in Japan and right before the premiere tonight, I have to sneak out to a digital house to approve the last few effect shots.

It has been a long hard road, but really fun one to travel. What you will notice that is strikingly different than Transformers 1, is the level of animation detail. The robot characters (42 in all), you really can feel empathy for them. What is also very different is the sheer scale of the movie. We have been very tight holding back much of the best imagery in commercials and trailers.

The way to see this movie is on IMAX. Never before has there been 4k rendered character animation shot on full IMAX 70 mm film. This is a first and the results are stunning. You will see Optimus Prime in a few shots where he is actually perfectly to scale on the IMAX 50 foot tall screens.

For IMAX, I created a slightly longer cut with more robot fighting. Four scenes were shot on IMAX cameras so the screen will fill the full IMAX screen for these scenes.

Haters beware.

So he mentioned that he was in Japan. He was there yesterday along with most of the movie’s stars- Shia LeBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese, Isabel Lucas and Ramon Rodriguez. The premiere came and went and below are plenty of pictures of the Bay and the cast on the red carpet, signing autographs, etc. Plus, a little video too. Enjoy.

So now that there has been a small amount of people who have seen Revenge of the Fallen, there must be some early buzz right? /Film is tracking the early buzz here. And this is what they have so far-

Sora on the MichaelBay Forums: “I loved Transformers 1 so much, but I’m sure you’ll feel like the previous movie was just a dash of bitters in a glass of appetizer Martini. Be prepared to be impressed!”

Wonkimus_Major on Don Murphy’s message board: “Movie was incredible, I liked it much more than the first! More action, more robots, less humans! Though there are some lame sexual inuendos like Wheelie humping Megan’s leg.” Head on over to the message board posting to read some spoilers.

So how do you Transformers fans feel now? Are you even more excited for the movie? Do you think it will be awesome? What do you think about the insane number of 42 robots in the movie? Let me know what you think.
