    March 14, 2007 - Showest. Geh. If you ever want a peek at the future in movie snacking (no trans fat), movie theater chairs (more cushier) or movie technology (digital projection, naturally), then Showest is your ticket. Set once again in Las Vegas, the town is packed with an odd mix of theater owners, exhibitors, some early bird spring breakers, and the usual gang of revelers. While we have been trying desperately to navigate the maze to find the cool stuff for you guys from the conference, we finally hit the jackpot (groan): a few hours ago, we got a chance to see about 20 minutes of new footage from Michael Bay's Transformers.

    One word: yes please.

    OK, that's two, but if this is what we can expect from the film in general, then it will be quite clear where to find most of IGN Movies' predominately pro-Bay staff this summer. Even though it was a little strange to us to be debuting such kick ass footage at Showest, the response from the crowd full of suits was actually quite amazing. Paramount must be breathing a sigh of relief because the theater owners and exhibitors went crazy for what we can only classify as some of the most brutal, visceral, uncompromising Bayness this side of Bad Boys 2.

    The man himself appeared on the Les Theatres des Arts stage at Paris Las Vegas to set up the clips. Bay seemed comfortable as he thanked the crowd for their support, but not without also commenting how much money he has made for them over the years, ticking off several of his hits (but leaving out The Island, which is too bad because it's one of his most ambitious and thought-provoking projects) . Bay stated that he had a very special feeling about Transformers and said he expected big box office returns. Finally, in a bit of insider comedy, he implored exhibitors to show the trailer and made it especially easy by having copies of the trailer on reels available after the show. Bay, to laughs, said some of the reels had free trips or dinner with Spielberg, etc.

    Continue on for new photos and scene descriptions of the film but BEWARE OF SPOILERS!
