    As long as they don't end up having Bay's name plastered over the trailers, it'll have a chance of being judged fairly. Otherwise, people/critics will see it as another lousy Bay movie, regardless of the quality.

    Itll be interesting to see how this movie turns out. However, I've enjoyed laughing at the "now the scrubbing of the Bay influence on these movies has begun" comments all over social media since this was announced. After 10 years, people are still butthurt over Michael Bay.

    This is very interesting. I haven't seen Kubo, but I actually ordered it in 3D a couple of days ago, and it should be here today. So now I'm even more excited to see it.

    The Director isn't going to be able to override a terrible set of Producers and a writer who just produced a 6 (yes 6) on the Tomatometer. Even with a decent script this movie will be handicapped by the non-Transformerism of the movies so far. At this point it is safe to say who cares both about this universe and this non-character.

    If we want good TF movies, we need out from under this whole group. That's what we need to push for.

    This guy was born in 77! That means he was 11 when G1 premiered! He might actually get it!

    This statement isn't really that great of words because it sounds like the opposite.

    This was unexpected, and most welcome. Kubo was excellent, I'm very optimistic about this. Time for the Michael Bay era of stupidity to end.

    Holy shit. Holy shit holy shit HOLY SHIT. This is more than left field, it's a comet strike from outerspace. And it's one that's made me genuinely excited for a Transformers movie for the first time in like, a decade. Incredible.

    I've always said, the best person to get for a Transformers movie is an animation director. Kubo was the best animated movie last year, so that makes this news even better.

    I haven't watched it yet, but apparently 13 hours is pretty good too.

    Hmmm... Michael Bay will still be a producer, so think again, it won't be Bayless.. but it'll be a new Knight. :D

    I'd say the first movie is...better than the others and s long way from good. I'd also say like sixth sense and split does not mean you shouldn't look at a shamylan movie with utter trepidation. The rock is an ok movie but I'd argue that's despite bay rather than because of bay. As for travis the thing to consider is really how much executive/production meddling will hamper him. It is so weird how many of the potential directors are known for so not la tf quality movies.

    Wait a second!!! The first Transformers movie was awesome!!!! Then again that was the 1986 cartoon movie, not directed by Michael Bay. But, still. That movie is still great.
