One of the most anticipated movies of the year is “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” screaming into theaters June 24, 2009. Summer blockbuster!
We haven’t really known much about it, but director Michael Bays is starting to spill details here and there. In a recent interview with MTV, he revealed a few things:
There’s no car chase in the movie. “In some movies, it’s the same action throughout the entire movie. There’s a lot of different types of action in this one, and that makes it interesting.”
We’ll see Devastator in IMAX. Instead of the 3D format everyone else is doing, Bay shot parts of the film in IMAX. One of the three scenes he shot in IMAX will focus on the biggest of all the Transformers, Devastator (formed when several Decepticons come together). “It’s the first movie to do serious digital effects in IMAX quality,” he said.
Megan Fox is still sexy. “[Wait until you see] the very first shot in the movie,” said Bay, responding to whether Fox gets a scene like her memorable hood-opening scene.
“[While filming] I was at a gas station buying ice cream bars, and these 15-year-old boys were looking at me. They were like, ‘You’re that dude that directed “Transformers”!’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah. Do you want to see “Transformers 2″? They were like, ‘Yeah!’ I said, ‘Why do you want to see it?’ And together, in unison, they said, ‘The hot chick!’”
“It will be a good shot for them,” he laughed.
