In an article over at Entertainment Weekly Michael Bay talks about Transformers 2, or as it is apparently titled, TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN. In the article, he confirms something he’s said since his interviews and commentaries during the release of the first movie. He says, “There are a lot of rumors out there, but we’ve released a lot of fake stuff. We’ve done a really good job of keeping things secret.” I absolutely love that and have no idea why.
I have been thinking for years that movie makers who want to keep their projects under wraps should engage in misinformation campaigns. What’s great is that everyone is reporting every little tid bit of information they get their hands on as if it is the real deal. So, as far as we know, the title may not even be real.
Therefore, I will now take this opportunity to inform all the great readers of Geek Out Online (The official website of The Geek Out Loud podcast.) That I will remain spoiler free when it comes to Transformers 2 from this point forward. Sadly, this means no breaking news on the film will be found here on the site. That is, unless, Mr. Bay would like me to visit the set, editing bay, sound design room, or just have a sit down and talk Transformers in general. (I know you’re reading this Michael Bay. You googled your name and this blog came up. I just want you to know that I am more than willing to help promote your film and will also assist in any misinformation campaign you wish to undertake.) Note to all readers: Please disregard everything you just read. If you see any news on the upcoming sequel to Transformers here on the site, you can totally trust it.
I think the main thing to take away from this post tonight is….corn on the cob is good.
