Hi All Just got back from the Sydney screening of the special advance footage. No expense was spared by the distributor tonight. From the black carpet to the massive cardboard cut out of Optimus riding Grimlock, I was thinking I was going to see the entire film not just 10-15mins of footage. The distributor also had some nice goody bags. Lots of stuff including a Kreo Transformer and a Transformer toy catalogue. I will upload pics of everything soon. Mark came on the black carpet on time and worked the media and there were lots of media to talk to ! He mingled with the fans on the black carpet and walked into the packed cinema bar a few empty chairs to introduce the film telling the audience its "F%&*%n awesome...otherwise he wouldn't be here". He took his chair in the front rows. Sitting back watching the advance footage was awesome. There were a few cheers when Mark appeared on screen. Amir Mokri and Michael Bay have worked overtime on angles of videography for the film. The score sounded awesome. You can tell its Steve Jablonsky because it gave you goosebumps watching the footage. It was all the same footage that was shown at cinema con After the footage, they showed the 3D trailer. Cue the applause from the appreciative audience and then the Q+A started ! Some bits from the Q+A Mark did mention that as he was driving to the airport to catch his flight he saw Bumblebee on a car trailer and mentioned that Michael Bay was still doing reshoots. Looks like they will be working overtime to get the print/film out. Mark didn't grow up with Transformers but he is hoping to get some toys. His work with TED helped him understand the CGI aspect of Transformers. A question was asked about which actor he would like to work with alive or deceased and he mentioned James Cagney. He had nothing but praise for Michael Bay . He mentioned he learned so much from him as directing is a path he wishes to take. What a great night. I cant wait till the film opens .
