New Michael Bay interview on DOTM - Forget about ROTF

Posted by:

Herocomplex has posted a new interview film director Michael Bay, who talks about how he's learned from the mistakes made in ROTF--fully admitting that, despite its commercial success, ROTF was "kind of a mess"--and plans to have DOTM done right in a way that makes you forget the ROTF movie.

He says that they're going back to basics with DOTM, keeping it less "mystical" and more "old-fashioned mystery" with sort of a "Black Hawk Down with giant alien robots" feel to it.

Bay goes further into talking about the technical side of the film with the 3-D equipment and techniques being put to use for making this movie.

I hope unicron is going to be in this movie.

I hope Unicron's in it as well, but not like how Galactus appeared in Fantastic Four 2. I used to like my Transformers in scale, but Blackout killed that for me.

Well, Bay said that there's nothing mystical about this movie. So, with Unicron being a god and all, it doesn't look likely.

It would be cool if Unicron was in it, but I don't think that robot was him in the trailer. After hear'n what the movie was about. I think it might be Alpha Trion

Perhaps Alpha Trion was placed there to protect Vector Sigma, which is hidden on earth?

ROTF was too sucky to forget. It was like a car crash so horrible I had to look at it.

i am liking the way you think wingsaber it sounds plausable. and it would fill in the macguvin for the film

do we know what the gimic in this movie figures will be?
Masterforce said,  - 2011-01-17 09:08:47
@lioconvoy: the new gimmick will be called "Mechtech." It's comprised of big-ass weapons, not unlike the GI Joe movie line. Some fans have speculated that they combine into something. I think they combine into a larger big-ass weapon.
