Transformers director Michael Bay has made a new post on his official message board talking about the teaser trailer that will hit next week:
It has been awhile since I’ve posted. Finished shooting end of Sept., on budget, just came under $300,000. I beat Pearl by a $100,000. I had a great time making this movie, the cast and crew were amazing.
Today I just finished the new teaser for Christmas and I think it’s AWESOME! The trailer mixing Guru who does all the big summer movies turned to me and said with a little more ump – it was “f**king awesome”.
I think some of my films have had good teasers but this one is just makes a statement. It’s hard edged to show we are not a silly “toy” movie. We show just hints of robots – and almost none of our epic shots are in this teaser, but the movie just looks big. I had a room full of 20 Tranformers adult geeks, and they all applauded at the end.
It comes out the 22nd – see it in the theater! Let me know what you think.
