While it's still a few months away, and there is much work to be done, director Michael Bay has gotten at least one positive review so far for his next film. Bay posted a thread on his message boards where he indicates that executive producer Steven Spielberg thinks his new Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is "awesome."
Steven Spielberg sat next to me in a big 100 person theater at Sony today. There were 98 empty seats. The lights came up after we just watched my cut of Revenge of the Fallen. He turned to me and said "It's awesome". He felt this movie was better then the first - and probably my best, who knows - at this point in a movie you start to lose your objectivity. I just hope the fans like it. I'm going to start putting it in front of audiences in a few weeks - no you are not invited, yet.
We have 60 days left. Let me tell you it will be a race to finish. It's 12 at night and we are still working here in the edit room. Everyone at ILM and DD are killing themselves right now, they are doing a stellar job on the effects. We also just finished our trailer which is coming out with Wolverine. Talk to you soon.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is set for nationwide release on June 24.
