Under the direction of Michael Bay, and with Steven Spielberg executive producing, we know that "Transformers" is going to be the kind of explosive action movie that is perfect for the height of the summer movie season. By staking our claim on the 4th of July, 2007, we ensure that we not only have the time to make this movie the way it should be made, but also to build excitement and awareness leading up to its release.""

Sure how exciting, a Transformers movie, directed by Michael Bay, that's what the world need, the excitement is building already

Lol, true. Michael Bay is going to completely kill any possibility of a good movie in this project, as he always manages to do.

[b]I should direct it[/b]
I would get Tara Reid, Christian Slater and Stephen Dorff. With a cast like that, how could I possibly fail?

Please leave my childhood memories alone!!!!!!

They are going to ruin them forever.

I hope, at least, that they make the movie about the original transformers, and not all the crap that's come out in the last 5 years.

Michael Bay directed The Island. See, he can make good movies.

The island has a 100% positive because there are about 6 reviews for it right now. That movie looks terrible, not to mention its a essentially a remake of a movie MST3K butchered a long time ago.

They have 2 years to make the Tranformer movie, how can they go wrong?
It's workin'!

Unlike X3, where they're rushing it, that movie is gonna blow hard.

thank you thank you thank you! been a fan since 1985, this is a no brainer, just imagine robot on robot all out rock em sock em action. I'm greedy so now I'm even hoping for other live action robot movies like Robotech and Macross or something of the same vein.

I just hope that the cgi looks good cause there's gonna be a lot of it. If the cgi looks crap then the movie will fail. I think Bay will be able to do the movie justice also, just look at the producers and executive producers. There's some talented people already involved in this movie and they haven't even gotten a cast together yet.

Ooh yeah! I've been waiting for this for a long, long time. And I think Bay is a great choice. Cameron would be perfect.

Why Transformers?! Speilberg and Bay, don't waste your money and time on this. There's alot better anime out there. Why don't you film Neon Genesis Evangelion instead?

"Why don't you film Neon Genesis Evangelion instead?"

NO. Don't you DARE say that. Do you realize how badly they'd BUTCHER NGE? No one could pull of NGE in a single live-action movie. Its impossible. Of course, there isn't much to worry about since that kind of movie will never be made in Hollywood anyway. It wou ld just go way over the studios' heads, let alone mainstream audiences'.

As forTransformers... yeah Michael Bay is amongst the worst directors of Hollywood today, but come on, this is big CGI robots/cars fighting each other. How bad can it be if you have good VFX?

Isn't there already a project in the works for NGE live action movie, with WETA (Lord of the Rings) involved for the CGI and special effects ? I read about that many times on the internet (from reliable sources, not just fandom... ^_^). I agree that NGE is too vast to be comprised in just a movie. They would have to conceive it from the beginning as (at least) a trilogy... If the film is made, I hope some really good director gets it (not Bay, I really don't like his style). A live action of Macross or X would be great too, but for Hollywood to jump into the adaptation of many classics of animation or manga, maybe we'll have to wait to see the outcome of Cameron's adaptation of "Battle Angel". Still a long wait...

[b]idea for a the teaser trailer[/b]
ok just imagine this for an early trailer, this would be kinda like a parody/spoof/homage on Fast and Furious, a suped up hot rod pulls up to a yellow VW bug at a stop light. Both cars rev up there engines and the drivers give some cold hard stares, so when the light turns green and both cars burn rubber down the road. Of course the Yellow vw bug wins (bumblebee). So the other car driver pulls up and is angry then his angry gangster passengers pull out guns to carjack the VW bug. The driver puts his hands up and get out the bug (Spike). Just as the gang members think they have the car, the little VW bug transforms right before everyones eyes and we hear the classic autobot transforming sound, and stands up as a 2 story tall robot, of course the gang members freak out and hop into their car and races away, while Spike and bumblebee stands there laughing away. And we end with the big bold title "THE TRANSFORMERS, JULY 2007"

If this movie is going to work at all, they almost have to ignore the "real world".

Megatron could turn into a handgun and Soundwave into a tape recorder (maybe he'll be a CD player now, or DVD, hm) because of their positronic matrix.... Anybody with the technical transformers guidebook knows that (Go energons!) LOL -- Who else wanted to actually be Spike and have their own transformer to sit in and make transform at will?
