Michael Bay reveals when the first official footage for "Transformers: Age of Extinction" will be released. "We are working hard cutting the movie right now. I think the first piece comes out for the Super Bowl and a teaser right after that," he spills on his official website.
Aside from giving info about what could be a trailer debut, the director also set the record straight on the rumor suggesting that he regretted his previous "Transformers" movies. "No I did not 'apologize' for any Transformers movies," he denied.
"I did not say I shot the last three movies 'less cool' than the new fourth installment. I was talking specifically about camera style and tone, of the first movie compared to how I shot the new installment with a very big scale, cinematic style."
"I was very specific in saying the first 'Transformers' was shot in a 'generic suburbia' area, not trying to be cool with any cinematic flashes. I wanted it to feel like this could happen in any backyard in the United States," he explained further.
The rumor seemed to originate from a set interview during which he revealed his vision for the upcoming film. "I wanted the first Transformers to be very suburban and less cool. This is a much more cinematic one. I focused on keeping this one slick," so he said. "There won't be any goofiness in this one."
After his statement was twisted by the media, he expresses his frustration on his blog post, "It is a drag talking to reporters on sets. Why? Because often times they take your words and skew things to their liking. Then the crazy, lazy game of reporting on what other writers story's reported me saying and suddenly it becomes skewed Internet truth. So I waste my time to restate exactly what I did say, again."
