    "It has been awhile since I've posted. Finished shooting end of Sept., on budget, just came under $300,000. I beat Pearl by a $100,000. I had a great time making this movie, the cast and crew were amazing.

    Today I just finished the new teaser for Christmas and I think it's AWESOME! The trailer mixing Guru who does all the big summer movies turned to me and said with a little more ump - it was "fucking awesome".

    I think some of my films have had good teasers but this one is just makes a statement. It's hard edged to show we are not a silly "toy" movie. We show just hints of robots - and almost none of our epic shots are in this teaser, but the movie just looks big. I had a room full of 20 Tranformers adult geeks, and they all applauded at the end.

    It comes out the 22nd - see it in the theater! Let me know what you think.

    Michael Bay"

    Who are these people that keep seeing stuff early? I don't want to know what they saw, but I'd like to see at least one person on the boards confirm that actual fans are seeing this stuff.

    Oh, and do we know what film it's gonna be with yet? I'm not a big theater person (Netflix FTW!), but I'll make a pilgrimage for this.

    I don't think it makes a difference.
    It'll probably be on the website the same day.

    Please members on this board call themselves geeks :p 

    Besides it's probably meant as "tongue in cheek"

    Almost none of your epic shots in the trailer?

    YES.

    PLEASE keep it that way with the trailers Bay. TEASE people and leave them wanting to go to the theatre to see more.

    If there's one major problem with movies these days, it's that the modern movie trailer is a 2-3 minute edit of the ENTIRE FILM.

    They probably can't, much like that "McFly" guy who e-mail the site about his part in the movie. They probably have to sign Non-Disclosure agreements or something. So anouncing "Hey I saw the trailer" would get them in trouble.

    You don't have to necessarily be a member of a Transformers forum to be a Transformers geek, but I suppose it would lend credibility.

    As Bay and Orci have hinted at, most people who aren't already Transformers fans, which is to say damn near everbody, lumps Transformers with Power Rangers if they are post-G1, and if they grew up with G1 they're not into toys and cartoons anymore. Getting the message across that this film is something an adult should be interested in seeing is very important, and I'm glad Bay feels they captured that in the teaser.

    Not showing the movie robots at all until asses are in seats is probably the best strategy. :lolol

    Chances are we'll see more of them, and some of those epic scenes Bay mentioned, in the actual film trailer later next year.
