    "Transformers Curse" -- More Than Meets The Eye

    Transformers: What in the name of Optimus Prime is going on with the "Transformers" cast and crew?! First Shia's car accident, then director Michael Bay's apartment gets broken into, and now another member of the crew has been injured.

    Not a curse, just a couple of unlucky accidents. Atleast no one has died, like "The Dark Knight".

    Pretty sure suicide is more of a willing thing than getting hurt in accidents D:/

    Anyways, yeah this is a rather odd series of coincedences. Given the nature of Bay's films though, that guy getting his arm burnt really should've been seen coming miles away.

    Yeah.

    On a big movie production, there's always the chance that someone has an accident.

    Even moreso, it'd be UNLIKELY if there were NO accidents.

    As long as the main cast doesn't start dying in droves, I wouldn't call it a "curse". I'd call it "life".

    Dark Knight had a special effects guy (I think that was his role) die during filming. There is a dedication to him and Heath at the end of the film.

    Well, you know, TMZ had to write up something about this and "curse" sounds a lot more interesting and negative than anything else they could come up with.

    Lousy bottom dwelling paparazzi.

    Conway Witcliffe, and he was a stunt co-ordinator if I recall correctly, died during a car chase stunt.

    Yeah I was talking about the stuntman who died onset, but of course Heath Ledger's death was still attributed to the overall air of bad luck that was attached to everything. After all, his death was an accident too.

    Typical TMZ B.S.

    When accidents on the scale of The Omen start happening then you can wonder if something strange is afoot

    That's not a curse. As Nevermore said someones bound to get hurt. Especially in a big budget film dealing with explosives and dangerous devices.

    Ouch.

    But as others have said, hardly a curse. Shit happens, and when you consider just how many people will be working on this film, and for how long, there's pretty reasonable odds that some kind of said shit will affect some of them during its production.

    This isn't The Crow or Poltergeist here people.

    TMZ are the conspiracy theorist spokespeople of the whackjobs and nut cases in showbiz. Tom Cruise should be proud.
