Transformers director Michael Bay has commented on his official message board about the IMAX release and sequel:
“But I just saw the first IMAX print of ‘Transformers’. Not depressing – freakin AWESOME! They need to bottle the magic of IMAX because it’s the future of cinema.
“It comes out next Friday the 21st. I added some extra scenes.
“‘Transformers 2′, well that’s another story. Iching [sic] to work pre-strike (June) so I might jump ship and come back a year or so later cause people at the studio have been dragging for two months. Not sure why. I’ll keep you informed.”
