As we at TFV participate in Hasbro’s Transformers Q&A program, we’ve been invited to ask this Friday, January 21st, 1 question of the TF: Prime production teams. This is an exciting opportunity, but only 1 question about the newest Transformers show means we need to figure out what’s the best question to ask. And fast! So please participate in the TF:Prime Q&A thread we’ve got going on, and check back for the answer on February 7th.
The L.A. Times has an interview with Transformers 3 director Micheal Bay, in which he discusses the upcoming Transformers film, as well as his thoughts on Revenge of the Fallen.
â€œIt was kind of a mess, wasnâ€™t it?â€ an unsmiling Bay said of the 2009 film, which was far from a flop â€” it grossed a potent $836 million worldwide, finishing third for the year behind only â€œAvatarâ€ and the sixth â€œHarry Potterâ€ movie. But the director still talks about the blockbuster in tones of regret. â€œLook, the movie had some good things in it and it was entertaining and it did very well, but it also failed in some key ways. I learned from it. And now with this third movie weâ€™re going back to basics and I absolutely believe this is going to be a much better film than the second one.â€
