Alternate Trailer Cuts?

Nelson, MichaelBay.com's admin, has posted two comments on the forums relating to the new Transformers 2 trailer debuting with Wolverine and online tomorrow (or view bootleg version here).

The first answers questions on why the HD version of the trailer isn't getting released early.
There are contractual agreements with Yahoo I believe. Plus there has been a small recall on the video for color correction purposes.
Nelson didn't indicate if this could cause a delay with the planned 3PM EST official release of the trailer tomorrow.

The second comment indicates that Bay might be planning some with some of the May movie releases.
Just spoke to Mike.

He indicated that there *might* be different cuts for the other movies this trailer is attached to: Star Trek and Terminator Salvation.
Note the emphasis on "might". Don't assume and get upset if this doesn't occur as probably at the idea stage. I am guessing it will only work for theatres that have a digital setup as I don't see the studio paying for printing and shipping alternate cuts of the trailer. Hopefully more details will get released next week if the plan goes forward. Thanks to Michael for the links.

  6. Considering the on-going fued between McG and the Bay, I'm sure that there will definately be a trailer on Terminator Salvation, it's only expected that a trailer, whether it's a new one or not will be attatched to Star Trek too, I mean that's Paramount's opening movie to this summer's festivities. But I'm more then sure that there will be some sort of kick-ass-in-your-face-trailer attatched to Terminator, just to show McG up.

  8. A trailer as high profile as Transformers will ship with the individual film prints, as it will undoubtedly still be on Wolverine when the other two films open. Theatres don't reuse trailers all that often anymore as the studios send more than enough out. Since they'll be printing them anyway they may as well do recuts, the trailers will be printed from a digital master anyway so there's really no reason not to.
