hey there! Yeah. You. Come here little kid. I have candy. Don't worry I won't trick and capture you and take you to my ship to lock you down with my and join my collection. So.....
Why are you running away?!?!
Oh hi Officer.
It's not what you think
I am pretty sure that for 3 minutes each kid would have sat silent and stared at the screen wide eyed, mouth open, and with a big smile by the end. Something to talk about in the playground and brag to their family and friends later. They knew this was special and I bet it was the best thing to happen to them all day. I think it was a great idea.
And I think all the self serving posts in this thread are bullshit.
You sir have won the thread, I applaud thee.
Dude, males 10 - 14 is Exactly the age range Michael Bay aims for
And how would you know if they appreciated it? I'm 24 and I still remember getting a "sneak preview" reading of Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone in 4th grade. It was something to talk/brag about with my friends and oh so exciting because we got to hear something special. You can never predict what will leave a lasting impression.
Besides, kids are the future of this franchise. The image of a bunch of kids watching Optimus wide eyed makes me happy. Dunno bout the rest of you.
Now...lets just hope those kids are computer savvy and post what they saw....
Michael Bay just wanted to check and see what they thought of his fart jokes.
It was probably an edited down 3 minute sizzle reel of all the best fart jokes in the movie.
ME GRIMLOCK NOT BOZO ME KING *farts*
They did though. 12 year olds love robits.
Kids don't deserve to see movie! They should have shown it to real fans!
Yup. That's what some of you sound like. Really?
This thread is full of winners! Great job everyone!
Good for them!
Not specifically towards the OP here, but they got shown it because most of the movie was filmed in Detroit, and its basically a PR stunt to pay back the locals for tearing up their city for a few months.
Really guys? The only fart jokes in the franchise were in ROTF.... I seriously hate some of you -_-
I think the reason a lot of us are ticked is cuz we're probably not gonna get a trailer for AOE till the Super Bowl, which some people don't even watch, is two months away, and is only 30 seconds long, yeah, it is kinda irritating that a bunch of kids get to see it who might not even care.
Also, just to throw out, they may do another trailer for the Daytona 500, which I think they did for DOTM.
Lmao! People are really getting upset because some kids had a promotional event to encourage perfect attendance and as an added bonus, they got to see 3 minutes of movie footage? People are really upset that they got to see something longer than we will see at Super Bowl?
To be honest, there will be millions of people that will see the TV spot during Super Bowl and they won't care either. But I'm sure there were many kids at that school that did care. So lets not take that from them, grow up and be happy that someone, kids or not got to get to see some footage.
Although I don't think the transformers movies are appropriate for kids younger than 12, the toys ARE meant for kids, not adults. REAL TF fans should be kids. The marketing of transformers should be kids. The Bay films, however, are made for teenagers, so if anything, should have been shown at a high school... If at all. So the real question should be... Why are they allowed to bring marketing material to a school? Shouldn't these kids be doing math, reading, and science?
These kids need an education to escape the death trap that is Detroit.
Which is the point of this little PR/charity event: to encourage young children to take school seriously and show them what awesome jobs area available if they do well. It wasn't just "3 minutes of film, come watch us next year," it was all done under the idea of promoting education. The reality may have fallen short, but I still find this a vast improvement over the Surge Soda Day my high school did in the 90's. At least thid children had access to someone to tell them how the industry works.
so much thinly veiled jealously and whiny manchildren in this thread.
It's amusing how many people in this thread are acting like they should be in elementary school themselves. Stay classy.
