Now that all of us have watched the feature trailer for Transformers at least five-plus times, Michael Bay has popped up on his official blog to give thanks and, better yet, announce that what we saw from the film are only side-dishes of what we're going to feast on in theaters this July.
Bay Comments on the Transformers Trailer
Hey, i want to thank everyone for the kind words on the trailer. I'm so used to seeing robots I kind of got bored with the trailer. I forget you have not seen them. When they put the piece together I kept wanting to show our truly awesome shots - but we didn't. I can without a doubt, say we have just teased you on this trailer. We have so many huge shots that will never be in our ads. I bet this will be one of the rare trailers that does not show you the true money shots of the movie.
I would also like fans opinion on opening on July 3rd instead of the 4th. The studio kind of sort of is thinking about which might mean "no". If you spread the word on the Net - everywhere - they might listen. The 3rd everyone is off from work, I say "what the fuck" play the movie - "give'em giant fucking robots early"!!!
Since the studios have pushed every other major summer tentpole up a day or up a midnight, why shouldn't Transformers? So, yes, deliver it on the 3rd, and I'll drink to its memory on the 4th!
