Michael Bay Promises Next 'Transformers 2' Trailer Will Spoil Most of the Film

He knows what the fans want...

Michael Bay has revealed that not only is the latest Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Super Bowl trailer just the start of things to come, but it also doesn't spoil the movie nearly enough. "Just wait until they see the next one," he tells us exclusively, "we are going to show so many robots you won't believe how many robots there are!"

Quite excited at the prospect of having a bunch of robots in his film The Bay revealed that the rest of the trailers leading up to the film should give away the majority of the plot, but he will be holding back on showing most of the explosions.

"A movie isn't an actual movie unless things are blowing up and I blow them up with the best of them," The Bay said. "Sure, you can have emotional moments and we have those with Megan and Shia, but when it comes down to it no one goes to a movie for the actual story as much as they go to see robots and things explode and we got that! I am the only director to have a direct line to the Pentagon. The Pentagon. Pentagon. You think Martin Scorsese can just call the Pentagon? Pentagon?"

When asked about the possibility of Constructicons showing up in the film I lost some steam because I didn't know what they were and had not yet watched the Super Bowl trailer, but he did say, "It's all bullshit. I am just toying with the fanboys." He emphasized "toying" as if to pass a mocking nudge at how the toys from the film have created such an online stir. "Did you see all the articles about the Soundwave toy? Pentagon. So funny, my robots ain't toys, they will kill you!"

I concluded the brief conversation asking Bay if fanboy assumptions were correct and Megatron was going to show up in the film after instead of destroying the Decepticon leader at the end of the first film they decided to dump him into the ocean. The Bay laughed and simply said, "ME-GA-TRON! Hey, that sounds like Pentagon, I wonder if the Pentagon is a robot too."

The next trailer for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will be shown in front of screenings of Friday the 13th in theaters beginning February 13 and will then hit the Internet a week later.

    “A movie isn’t an actual movie unless things are blowing up and I blow them up with the best of them,” The Bay said. “Sure, you can have emotional moments and we have those with Megan and Shia, but when it comes down to it no one goes to a movie for the actual story as much as they go to see robots and things explode and we got that!”

    I know he didn't said that...
    But I'm sure he thinks that. lol

    Why the fudge is bay being so pompous? Satirical or not, he behaved like an asshole.

    Anyways the teaser looked pretty awesome, and i don't knw if anyone noticed, but it followed the style of the teaser of the original Transformers perfectly. Similar music, similar depiction of the robots. Similar style of showing explosions. Only bigger.

    what's the point of this article? it's not funny, and it's all lies. I know it's satire, but at least it could be funny.

    FROM BRAD: As a member of Michael Bay's fansite I would have hoped you would have fun with it, nothing more. No hatred here.

    what an ass, But who cares right?

  • USC film 04

    Transformers has so much potential, It deserves to be in the hands of talented and capable filmmakers who puts just as much (even more) emphasis and due importance to storytelling, depth, characterization, than just "big loud explosions" and "fry your eyes out visuals".

  • Lies

    This article is a Lie. PERIOD.
    It never happened, its all in somebodies sick imagination.
    Some fanboy is mad at Michael Bay and decided to write up some nonsense to make people think what they want them to think.

  • Seiko

    @USC film 04: I don't know; I thought the drama parts (besides the ending robot narration or the planning to go after bumblebee and the cube) was pretty stupid. Who really cares about Megan Fox and Shia Bla bla bla's love story, or there friends, or his parents, or any of that?
    This about the robots, them fighting, the decepticons getting revenge with a darker tone.
    Michael Bay may sound like an idiot in this article, but what he said about not caring about the drama could really be a good thing for this movie.

  • atl roller`

    i love how he is referred to as "the bay" it only adds to it when he starts ranting about the pentagon! but i do hope this movie is amazing as I am eagerly awaiting the june release!

    I found this to be hilarious. Reminds me of the Brett Ratner posts over on Latino Review.
    You should have a whole category just titled 'The Bay.'

  • mostlyharmless

    I don't believe for a second he said any of this. Good try, should be April.

  • lombie

    I almost like this Bay better than the real Bay. Pentagon.

  • Mark

    As I looked at the picture all I could think was there are two pieces of equipment that are deadly in those hands.

  • it didhappen

    @Lies: it did happen i saw the video clip at superherohype.com ...not sure if he is being arrogant. He has to have swag in relation to his own film. His confidence can help make or break this film. Whether it works or not..it has everyone's interest peaked !!!
