Michael Bay screened Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen for Steven Spielberg today (who serves as a executive producer on the film) and Bay writes on his official website that Spielberg thought it was “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 than 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.”
Bay went on to say that they’ve just recently cut a new trailer for the film, and that i’ll be attached to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which hits theaters on May 1, 2009.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters on June 24, 2009.
