Michael Bay Says Transformers 4 Will Have a Different Feel

Posted on 10-08-2012 at 10:16 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Talking with ET, Director Michael Bay stated that Transformers 4 will have a “different feel”:

"What I can say is that it's going to pick up where the other three left off," said Bay of the film, which will predominantly feature new actors from its predecessors. "It's going to feel very different. It's going to definitely open the franchise up for many more to come, and it's going to have a freshness to it."

Take a look at a short video from the interview below:

A different feel?

Calling it now - that's because it's "we've got to stop the Psycho Prime".

Seriously though, I'll be fine if it's similar to DOTM MINUS the pointless giant worm that did nothing but add runtime to the film. It could have been completely excised and nothing would be lost save for budget dollars.

Oh joy, vague statements that don't mean anything!

It'll be interesting to see how the notions of, "picking up where the other three left off." and, "Its going to feel very different." play along.
eagc7
wonder what he means with diff feel, well i guess we will see in few years
FatalT 71
Sure, Mike. Sure it will.

More explosions, less plot, more screaming bimbos.

Bayformer SOP.

I'll probably go see it anyway, just for explosions and bimbos.

A different feel... what does that even mean? Michael Bay is so full of crap. I can't see this movie I feel like I am rewarding bad behavior if I go see this. Would me not seeing it make a difference, of course not.

I personally dont like the bay transformer movies but I also realize that it is good for the brand so I guess its a neccessary evil.
NCStarscream
"Different" in the sense that Shia won't be around to yell "NONONONONONO" every ten minutes.
Optimatron
Picking up where the first three left off is literally the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Every Decepticon of importance is dead. I know that doesn't mean much for our beloved robots, but this all just feels forced.

The best thing to do would be to let Bay go on his merry fucking way and reboot everthing completely. I'm sick of these asshats. I enjoy the films for what they are, but I loath them due to the thought of what they could be, and what I have imagined blows everything Bay has given us out of the water.
Autobot Burnout
Instead of explosions predominantly on the LEFT side of the screen, there will be explosions predominately on the RIGHT side of the screen!

You know what this mean folks.

BACK TO THE MICHAEL BAYIFIER!

This should be interesting.
JediTray
Wow. He must have taken his medication. He seemed so calm and adult-like. Since picking it up where the other three left off and doing something different can't possibly happen at the same time with this guy, I think we all know that TF4 is going to be more of the same. Cue the insane number of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee toys falling off the shelves around then, too. Maybe what Bay means by "different" will be Bumblebee TALKING! Ooooooh....
ladywreck
"it's going to pick up where the other three left off"

AT THE SAME TIME!? It makes no sense...3 movies in one... it'll change the future of film forever! And Bay's name will be heralded forever as the film maker that made it happen.

And the rest of us who are not ADHD will cry ourselves to sleep as we dream of back when movies actually told good stories. This does not instill confidence...
JetFormers
Just no more love stories please.
luckybot
Define "Different" especially Micheal bay's version of "Different"
The Crooked Man
These movies made money DESPITE Michael Bay's involvement, not because of it. It's the Transformers, dummy.
Ephland
Clearly, we should all immediately start bashing this film, and Bay for these outright and blatant lies.

"Instead of that ass rape feel, it will be more of a butt rape feel..."
The Crooked Man
Everybody be nice. Just because the first three movies were terrible, ignoring almost everything that makes Transformers great, we should give Mike the benefit of the doubt. Fourth time's the charm.

if Bay wants he can easily bring them back to life, but we still dont know what his plans are for the decepticons in TF4, but we will see soon what he will do the decepticon team soon
Noideaforaname
Just as mindless explosions are a certainty in Michael Bay films, so is mindless bashing in Michael Bay threads.

Keep those vague as possible lies to yourself Bay.

they said they have plans to continue with Prime beyond 2014 (heck DOTM didnt affect TFP)
TylerMirage
As cautiously excited I am for TF4, these sorts of interviews - much like the Tyrese article - just don't do anything for me. The movie is so far away at this point and everything said about the movie is all "what ifs", "we plan on", "[generic sequel statement here]", "[vague prediction about the quality here]" and whatnot. They're all just saying the same recipe-card statements in order to give something to viewers/fans. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Any movie/any director would do that. They have to say something, but they don't really have anything to say something about at the moment, so it's to the generic-computer they go. Once pre-production art shows up, or filming starts or a teaser is released, then these interviews might offer something concrete.

It's funny because it's what's happening.

So it's going to feel different when Michael Bay rapes our childhoods now?
soundwaverulls
So a TF film that will feel very different to the last lot, have a different cast and will be Bay's last TF film. Why does all that sound familiar?

Not falling for this bullshit again. If he was ever going to learn his lesson it would have been after ROTF. And why would he change the feel if each film has out grossed the previous

TF4 checklist
>Bad storytelling
>Victoria secret shots of women
>Annoying human characters
>stereotypes
>little to no robot character development
> A final battle that shows the US military more than it does the autobots
> ATROCIOUS HUMOR

Yep. I'll be passing on this one.

Different as in, no more Sam meet Dave (played by Jonah Hill) and his GF Mika (Played by Kim Kardashian), and the autobots have gone through some changes yeah they have, optimus now has More Flames, and Bumble Bee now goes BEEP BOOP BEEP, and we've taken off every other character that was some what descent and replaced them with a brand new cast featuring Blurr- but we're gonna call him speedy, Grimlock- but we're gonna call him Megazoird and he turns into a Toyota! he is the leader of the Dynos a rag tag group of Pals that are each mentally challenged (that won't upset anyone right? says Michael Bay) and they each turn into the same toyota, but don't worry we kill them off in the best way possible...EXPLODING! and Megatron is now Hugamon and he turns into a half truck/half Hedgehog and he dies in all three but comes back! TWIST! oh and then there's Stareyell, Noiseblaster, Electricwave, and Dildo! they each turn into jets that are all PINK! COOL RIGHT! they also are voiced by Chevy Chase, David Letterman, and Danny De Vito! GREAT CAST RIGHT! oh and each end with Optimus Talking while we explode things! coming soon Trans4mers: Revenge of the Light on The Side of The Sun

Yes, i know i went to far...but FUCK YOU MICHAEL BAY! YOU'VE LITERALLY MADE ME WANT TO STOP BEING A COLLECTOR! I WILL NOT BUY YOUR CRAP OR YOUR "REDESIGNED" FUCKING BAY-VERSE TOYS!....i think i made my point sorry if i came off as a crazy ass mutha fucka but i literally HATE HIM! he's raped by Childhood not 1, not twice, not 3 times, not even 4, because of his TMNT oh wait i'm sorry Ninja Aliens That Look Like Turtles, R.I.P my childhood :.( well at least i have TF: Prime and TMNT 2012

Yes because Micheal Bay has been so honest with us there is no way that anyone could confuse him with the boy who cried wolf. Ha ha, what's next some statement about how Honest Bay doesn't have an ounce of ego and he does everything for the fans?

I was thinking Psy and Gangnam Style. Think how appropriate "hey sexy lady" would be for Bayformers!
aeleven
Is he going to have more racists characters and things things that will piss G1 fans? Maybe he'll have something different like gay robots fornicating in a junkyard, the last 3 movies were garbage, I don't expect this movie to be any different. Micheal Bay can catch on fire and fall in a pit of shit, for all I care.

Maybe this one will have a script?

I... *shrugs* I don't have the energy to get angry over these things anymore.

It'll be a movie with a deeply flawed plot, some amazing special effects and wonderful action scenes. I'll still see it. I'm under no delusions about it. I sat through Energon, which was 52 episodes of stock footage and bad dubbing, which came after Armada, which was 52 episodes of bad animation and bad dubbing... I can sit through a two and a half hour action movie every few years. As flawed as those movies were, there are actual good things in them that made them enjoyable for me.

Is "different feel" not exactly what he said about DOTM?

That's what I recall.


And as for 'all the major Decepticons are dead'. This is true. However there's nothing saying Starscream, in the movieverse, doesn't have the same immortal spark he has in other incarnations. Or the presence of Galvatron, Ratbat, Overlord, Jhiaxus or Straxus could occur to take over the leadership role. Hell even Sixshot would make a decent foe.

Besides, it's not like Decepticons got enough characterisation to care about them anyway? Who cares who they are? It's just another case of the Bumblebee and Prime Power Hour.
QLRformer
He promised DOTM would have a different feel, too. Never saw a more disapointing film in my life...

Look, all we ask are that there are more robots who get more screentime than the humans they're protecting, and get more character development too. Bay's got enough money to pull it off now that DOTM hit a billion dollars, so he better deliver "Bots vs Cons", and not "Bots and the US Army vs Cons".

TF4 Wish List

1. Coherent Story that doesn't contradict previous plots
2. Villain(s) that the audience really want to spit on - suggest Bay watches Batman trilogy
3. Enemies that seem like a genuine threat

You know I do not agree with most of the remarks on here, those three movies were great. Although I am tired of Sam Witwicky but that's just because I am annoyed and disgusted with that actor who plays him he is just way too impressed with his showing himself in films and videos thinking he has something special when you seen one you've seen them all unless his can do tricks which I am thinking it can't so you know. The only things I found with the last movie was how he made Optimus he turned him evil sort of in the end like a killing machine instead of the proud noble hero he is in the story line. Sentinel should have died because he was just an evil jerk who needed to be put down. But Megs offered him a truce, and the Optimus in the main Transformers lore would have accepted the truce. I also did not like the fact Ironhide was not mourned he and Optimus were supposed to be close and yet there was no emotion there... I still enjoyed the movies I just think Optimus needs to be portrayed as the noble hero he is not some whack job
