Bay: Wait A Year!

That didn't take long. Michael Bay posted on his forums that Paramount (or at least Variety's source) has it wrong. The third movie is not being released on July 1st, 2011 as reported but July 4th, 2012.
Wait a minute!

I said I was taking off a year from Transformers. Paramount made a mistake in dating Transformers 3 - they asked me on the phone - I said yes to July 4 - but for 2012 - whoops! Not 2011!!! That would mean I would have to start prep in September. No way. My brain needs a break from fighting robots.

Michael
Boo! I don't want a year of nothing much to post about! Seriously I would say after four years of Transformers on the brain, a vacation has been earned. If I had the Baybucks that he has, I would probably just not bother to return. At the very least it allows the recharge of the creative battery (and might help increase the budget) to allow for even bigger baysplosions!

  2. A year to wait so Bay can bring Galvatron to fight earth which is secretly an autobot in hiding! rofl...

    I want #3 to be the one we go "oh, wait, did that just happen?" Or maybe "WOW Shia does die!" lol

    Thanks for the info.

  3. *******ADMIN PLEASE READ THIS**********

    In your "Bumblebee at the Boneyard" set of pics I noticed something....

    The middle section has 2 interesting pics.

    Both the left and middle pic in that section show a strange prop...

    I believe it's JETFIRE'S landing gear {I read they had scale set-piece}

    I think this confirms that JF is indeed at the Boneyard in Tucson and who knows what type of Autobot friends he has there. Perhaps he knew where to go for 'TRANSPORT' to Egypt

    ***********PLEASE TAKE A LOOK*************

  5. to the Anon. above me:

    that is a camera crane with wheels...not a prop landing gear. look closely.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Why need a camera crane on wheels when you have a scissor lift?

    The 'gear' was moved into place & once they're ready to shoot---the wheels detach.

    ReplyDelete
  7. camera crane on wheels would be good for...moving....

    but i will one up you, this is a new transformer called Long Shot.
    with his telescopic lens and wheels, this autobot can film any action on the go!
    back on cybertron his work was mostly documentary, he is one of the few transformers who loves his new life on earth due to all the action.

    quote, "a little to the left please."

  8. agree with Bay. A 2012 is better. He needs a break

    ReplyDelete
  9. Why break? Third film is possibly last one of those live-action films.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yup, Camera Crane.

    Scissor lift is not useful when doing a sweeping pan shot. Also more stable and smoother movements when going up for a higher camera shot.


    I don't think he needs a break, he needs to get his butt back to work. Take the summer off like everyone else then get back to work.

  11. Whiners :P Second movie didn't came out yet, and they already want a third one :P Give this man a break.

    ReplyDelete
  12. As much as 2011 would have been great because its only 2 years from now, what is one more year? Besides, to a point, I agree with Bay, he'll need a break, the writers will need a break so hopefully, depending if 3 will be it or not, we'll need a good ending or a top notch 3rd movie.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I hope the 3rd isnt the last movie. We do need a really good 3rd. I would want it much darker. The Decepticons take over! That would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Maybe with a year break, they can really come up with a great story to end the trilogy. Let's not forget that the technical advances that could be made in that year, allowing for a lot more TF's and a larger scale. A fresh mind might yield the best results. I hope they put more of the classic characters in like Prowl, Bluestreak, Mirage, Hound and Brawn.

  15. Replying to 1320LEGEND:

    I would be okay with that however i at least hope there is a huge fight with hundreds of Autobots and Decepticons (At least hundreds of drones or background characters). My hope is Bay has his Aircraft carrier transformer in the third film (If he does please call it Tidal wave or Broadside) and maybe Unicron as it is almost impossible to imagine bay not wanting to do a Planet being eaten by a huge robot.

    Let Bay have his break. As long as he gives us a small teaser every now and again (Once a month)

    P.s. The only way i see this ending is if Optimus Prime die`s and Bumblee bee becomes the leader (Kind of like Hot shot becoming Rodimus prime)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I don't see Unicron happening anytime soon (maybe in a part 6). I would think Bay would have to build up his TF Universe abit more before introducing him into it.

    Even there wouldn't it be kind of a remake of the Animated movie?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Replying to Kasumi:

    They mentioned something about the legend of primes for this film also they have introduced the fallen whose back story is heavily centered around both Unicron and the god of Transformers Primus. Although it is much more likely that there will be a huge ton of Autobots versus a even larger amount of Decepticons using earth as there battleground in the third.

    Also it seems that Bay based the last film on G1 so maybe he had some inspiration from the original film.

  19. Peter Cullen is confirmed to voice cast in third film, so how could be possible that Optimus Prime dies in ROTF movie? Or wait, if he dies in this movie, he'll be resurrected in third film.

    Just like in the original series or Peter cullen may only be voicing a flashback of prime or Primes ghost or memory.

  25. Can you think of any other way?

  26. Scorpio, there could be countless other possibilities for a script that has yet to be written.

  31. I do think Bay does deserve a good break. But i also would like a TF3 movie but it's best that a busy directer like Bay deserves a break after 2 huge movies.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I HOPE ULTRA MAGNUS WILL BE IN THE 3rd MOVIE..AND ALSO KUP AND WHIRL AND ROADBUSTER AND SPRINGER..

    ReplyDelete

  35. hey guys..how on earth does it gona be if christopher nolan did a transformers movie..or transformers 3?...i cant stop thinking..hahaha..

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow,the 2nd movie hasn't come out yet,and now we are talking about the future? Give Michael a break. Personally,I also think that Michael have to think a lot more through in making the 3rd film. I think that he doesn't want to messed up the 3rd one as the 2nd one is beyond amazement. And you can't just jump to conclusions that the 3rd film will definitely have Unicron. But right now,let's enjoy what TF has to offer!!!*woot* Bring it on Cons'!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. We need at least 5 movies.

  38. Replying to Essex:
    There are three confirmed movie`s that have Shia,Megan and Peter Cullen signed on for. Although i predict Bay only doing three of these films as he would want to take a break after three of the same time of film!

    Scorpio says:
    Old enough to say i am a head transformers fan but not old enough to say i was there when it started.Can you think of a Script that`s cooler than the original film`s plot? (Imagine Unicron as a huge metal robot in live action)
    P.s. Thanks for supporting me Kup :)

  39. ^^^ Another annoying post from Scorpio

    what a Shocker!!!

    No actors have signed on for 3 movies--it was always 2---Bay cited that fact on his website many moons ago---JUST 2---You should probably belong to more than one website Scorpio

  40. Michael Bay should make a Transformers Live Action TV-Show, where each episode takes 1 hour or so ...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Replying to anonymous at 12.59PM:

    I am afraid there you are dreadfully mistaken Shia Labuef signed on for three transformers films when he joined to play a part in the first film. Peter cullen was confirmed (Interview with Empire Magazine) after they started work on the second film. Megan fox on her blog said that she would sign on for all the films if they wanted her to do more films.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Noone signed on for 3 when the first one was created--LaBeouf signed for 3 AFTER the first was a hit---Cullen signed on for a third AFTER they started work on the second & Megan said she WOULD sign on for more----AFTER the first was a success....

    WHICH IT WAS---these people aren't stupid to sign on to a dying franchise so...they WAITED to see how the first did.

    You should stop posting & stick to your 'competitions'

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sorry i got a bit mixed up but the point is this isnt the first new we have heard about the third film and that the main three cast are already signed on.

    ReplyDelete
  44. -another year to wait for this shitty movie?-
    Why are you posting comments like that seriously if you hate transformers so much then why did you come to this blog in the first place!

    ReplyDelete
  45. yes agree, mr bay should rest for at least one year, though we are much eagered to watch the 3rd transformers :)
    have a nice rest, mr bay

  46. "Michael Bay should make a Transformers Live Action TV-Show, where each episode takes 1 hour or so ..."

    That's not a bad idea,but it will be a little challenge after they make the 3rd movie.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Bay needs a break but i would prefer a Holidays 2011 date, and not a july 2012 date :/, TO MUCH JUNE/JULY
