The site admin over at ShoottheEdit
recently posted a list of various updates and bits of info for Michael Bay's
This info supposedly comes from the mouth of Michael Bay.
So many little Transformers updates to appear online. It
turns out that the teaser trailer for Transformers, though
none of the footage will be seen in the film, was the second best preview
of the summer. Check out all the bits of info below.
I just barely caught Michael in between takes. Among the things he mentioned:
1- They will be releasing more teaser posters in the coming months.
2- Paramount made studies and concluded that the TF "ANNOUNCEMENT" was the 2nd highest rated "teaser" this summer.
3.- They just finished shooting a lot of Pentagon interiors on a soundstage in scenes that involved many Chiefs of staff in their huge war room.
4.- Shia just was recently suspended over the edge of a 20 story building in a very dynamic and intense scene.
5.- The average transformation time from normal mode to alt mode and vice versa is about 3 to 4 seconds.
6.- The leaked pictures are legit (although a somewhat early rendering).
7.- Filming of massive chase scenes will begin in the following weeks.
8.- The CGI transformations by ILM are looking wicked and nastier every single day.
9.- Part 1 will be about why the transformers came to earth.
10.- This movie will be a new start for the live action franchise that will not be based on any particular TF TV series and/or comic book.
