There's been a lot of Transformers talk over the weekend with Bernie Mac describing his used car salesman role and Lorenzi DiBonaventura explaining the film's still incomplete visual effects shots. But one piece of information that seemed unique was its running time.

With three months to go, the picture surely is not yet locked. But DiBonaventura leaned a way that may sound counterintuitive to the big blockbusters that want as many showings as possible per day.
"I think it'll be longer than people expect because it's very entertaining," said the producer.
Most people probably expect somewhere between 90 minutes and two hours, with the two hours on an extreme end of the spectrum. But imagine that Michael Bay has not made a movie under two hours since the original Bad Boys and this makes more sense.
