It’s been confirmed that "Transformers" will now open on July 2nd at precisely 8pm. (Plus we have some new cast interviews to check out.)
July 2nd is a Monday, by the way, just in case you’re making (very) early movie plans.
Also, the guys over at IGN Movies sat down with some of the "Transformers" performers and asked them what it was like working with Michael Bay.
Says Shia LaBeouf: ""Michael Bay’s the fastest, most intense director I’ve ever worked with. The explosions are right here. They’re not CGI. You know, the other day they had me on top of one of these buildings one-handed with wire, a wire here and a wire there and a cube here. It was insane, but that’s stuff that you usually shoot CGI and Michael doesn’t do CGI. He likes seeing the immediate, he likes being able to go into his trailer and go, ‘You’re never gonna believe what I just shot.’ Rather than have to wait for the CGI to be put into greenscreen. He likes to see immediately, so things like explosions, I mean, it’s all very real."
Says Megan Fox: "I don’t know what I did in the beginning or what happened, but he is really great with me; he’s great with Shia. And he yells. People always talk about how he yells, but he’s not like malicious or scary when he yells. He’s always half joking and he says things that if you don’t have a thick skin might hurt your feelings, but if you don’t have thick skin you should get out of this business anyway."
The article also details a little of the plot, so feel free to check it out.
