Nelson here…thanks to Adam Lloyd for the heads up on the Steve Jablonsky Transformers scoring sessions .
Hey, I want to thank everyone for the kind words on the trailer. I’m so used to seeing robots I kind of got bored with the trailer. I forget you have not seen them. When they put the piece together I kept wanting to show our truly awesome shots – but we didn’t. I can without a doubt, say we have just teased you on this trailer. We have so many huge shots that will never be in our ads. I bet this will be one of the rare trailers that does not show you the true money shots of the movie.
I would also like fans opinion on opening on July 3rd instead of the 4th. The studio kind of sort of is thinking about which might mean “no”. If you spread the word on the Net – everywhere – they might listen. The 3rd everyone is off from work, I say “what the fuck” play the movie – “give’em giant fucking robots early”!!!
Hard to believe it really is Bruce saying that stuff on AICN. I loved working with Bruce. He gave me a big hug one month ago at the GM party and we talked for 20 minutes. We even talked about working together again! I mean it would be sad if he felt this way – he’s never one to hide his feelings – I say sad, in that he wouldn’t be man enough to say it to my face. But truly sad that such a big time actor would have to hide on a little talk back section. So I really don’t believe this story.
I find it also totally odd that my agents at William Morris got the call from Bruce’s people to inquire if I would like to helm Die Hard 4, but I was already on Transformers.
It’s with great pleasure that I announce Bonecrusher Bay. Bonecrusher is Michael’s new mastiff.
Sadly Mason passed away 6 weeks ago. He had been around a while and had parts in Pearl Harbor and Bad Boys 2. He will be missed.
In other news, there have been a couple folks in MySpace that have been pretending to be Michael. Like this loser here.
Michael’s true MySpace placeholder page can be found here. Sadly, www.myspace.com/michaelbay is owned by someone else.
Hence I’ve set a page at the VIRB online community. You can find it at http://www.virb.com/michaelbay.
VIRB is what Myspace would be if they cared about design and layout. VIRB is fresh and small as we speak. I expect it to be popular but niche online community. We’ll see.
A little update: I just spoke to Bay and he’s just putting the finishing touches of the new Transformers theatrical trailer.
It will be attached to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.
