    Exclusive Video: Director Michael Bay talks TRANSFORMERS Revenge of the Fallen

    In this video interview, which Bay admits is the longest he's done for ROTF, he reveals;

    *He tried to please fans by making the film darker.
    *This movie is more about the humans being taken on an adventure with the robots, rather than discovering them.
    *ILM's robots are better actors now, whereas on the first film Bay was just trying to make them look convincing.
    *Bay got permission to film in Egypt by contacting Zahi Hawass, secretary general of Egypt's council of antiquities, who turned out to be a fan of the first film.
    *He'd like to do TF3 but right now his mind is on having a year-long break.
    *He's shaved 13 minutes off the film, which is currently two hours and 20 minutes.

    The interview is a video, which you may watch if you like Bay's hyperactive humour.

    lol Zahi Hawass? Seriously? That's cool. Never would've figured him for a fan of the first movie.

    I thought it was ironic too since Hawass hates the ancient astronaut theory, yet this movie has Transformers influencing the civilization of his people, who he's spent a lot of time proving built the pyramids by themselves. Still, I guess he acknowledges it's fiction.

    Yeah - that's not the movie physical model of Bumblebee. He has a different license plate.

    I imagine this franchise will follow the "Pirates of the Caribbean" in terms of box office. $400m seems very likely.
