I read this interview over at Entertainment Weekly earlier this morning and honestly debated putting it up here. Since coming back, I've seen some news sites saying "Michael Bay says yes to a Transformers sequel" in the headlines. Okay, that's not exactly news. I think anyone and everyone already knows there will be a sequel with all the money coming into Dreamworks and Paramount for it. Even Michael Bay states the obvious in the interview with EW. Since TRANSFORMERS has been a headline for 5 days straight here, I thought I would give everyone a break from having yet another fan boy arguement over the merits of whether "Bay did a good job here" vs "Michael Bay sucks dingo kidneys".
Alas it is not to be. Slow news day and all.
Still, there are 3 whole pages of interesting questions pointed towards Michael Bay in this interview. It was an interesting read and director Bay does seem comfortable with himself as time rolls onward. He also talks about his next film which will have no explosions, car chases, etc.

Jarrod's Note: On another piece of news so I don't need to type up two different TRANSFORMERS articles for today's home page, According to ShowBizData, the film took in another 29 million on Wednesday, July 4th. This is a very good total considering that the holiday itself is always low in box office receipts (it's usually the days before & the days after that hit well). The action film starring the Autobots vs the Decepticons has pulled in 65.6 million in two days and a half days of release.
