    Doesn't really matter. Have the whoopy doopy bigass HD version on my harddisk now. Would have been kinda nice if somebody actually told it was a 12-hour thing BEFOREHAND, though. :p

    MICHAEL BAY STATES: "FOOTAGE WAS A 12 HOUR DEAL"

    IN OTHER NEWS: DIRECTOR IS STILL A DICK.

    Seriously though, most people nowadays have programs that can rip movies from sites as well as youtube downloaders, if you didn't get it I'm sure it's out there somewhere.

    So either Michael Bay doesn't understand the fundamentals of teh internets or this is just a stupid PR damage control quote that doesn't really mean anything.

    I have to believe that Bay is smart enough to know that there is no such thing as "on the internet for 12 only hours".

    So because he released limited time, exclusive footage, he is a douche, right?

    *sigh*

    And if you watched the Optimus vs. Bonecrusher fight from the first film, something similar happened. When they drop in front of the family and someone gets punched in the face, oil splatters from their 'nose' onto the windshield.

    It helps if you have the HD version.

    I loved the Wolverine leak. Better than X1 or X3. Not as good as X2. It's no The Dark Knight, but for a Fox film, it rocked. Seeing more giant balls of aluminum bump around beforehand will only add to the experience.

    Really? It was in either the Superbowl teaser or the first teaster. I remember watching it frame-by-frame and finding that hilarious, since I always thought Prime didn't have a real "mouth" since behind his "lips" it looked like a speaker screen. Seeing him "spit blood" was just too funny for words.

    Makes me wish the Jazz shot out all his gasoline when Megatron tore him in half, rather than just a short blue spark. Aw well. As for the Showest footage, thanks to torrents and forums like this, anyone who wants the footage will have EASY pickings to getting it, just like the leaked scripts and treatments.

    No, he is a douche for not saying that the video would be a 12 hour thing.

    And only saying that it was AFTER it is taken down.

    So that's why the footage was pulled off. Darn... I was hoping to show my brother the footage, as I've seen it and I thought he might get a kick out of it.

    Did he have to?

    The footage wasn't labeled as permanently public, either.
