Transformers Movie NewsTransformers Revenge of the Fallen has now taken over 200 million dollars since its release in the US. The movie still has a long way to go before it reaches the first film and with Ice Age 3 out this week it will be interesting to see if it remains at the top.

Transformers Movie NewsAs predicted Transformers Revenge of the Fallen has out sold the original Transformers live action movie, well for the first three days anyway. The movie has now grossed the fourth highest earnings for any film over its opening three days. The top three films opened on a Friday. Although Transformers Revenge of the Fallen has out sold some films, the attendance has been lower than some lower grossing films - which reflects the higher ticket prices. Figures can be seen on BoxOfficeMojo.com

Transformers Movie News

Paramount was looking for bigger with Michael Bay's highly anticipated Transformers sequel and it looks like they've got it. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen debuted to a record $16 million last night, the most ever for a Wednesday midnight run. (Warner Bros.' The Dark Knight scored $18 million for its midnight run last year, but that was on a Friday.)

So how high will Transformers 2's grosses go this weekend? Predictions have ranged anywhere from $125 million to $160 million for the five-day frame. Whatever the number, it will be good news for the box office, which is having trouble maintaining last summer's record draw.

Transformers Movie News

In a post on his own message board, Michael Bay urges fans to go see the iMax version of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen

Back from Moscow. Fresh from a visit to the former KGB, with second in command. He told me in his office I'm one of 10 American's, one being a President, to ever be allowed inside what is now called the FSB. The only reason was he heard I was in town and he is a fan of my films.


Last night with my crew I saw the IMAX version. Once you get used to the giant format and your eyes adjust, it's an awesome experience. I have been waiting until the film was final to judge, and I'm really pleased. You have to make a point to see it this way - It could be the very best way to see Transformers.

C'mon guys critics? Give me a break. Do you all have short term memory? They killed the first one, and it still became a world-wide smash. I made this for the you, the audience!

Transformers Movie News

Transformers Director Michael Bay sent a scathing email to studio Paramount Pictures on the 4th May, reports gossip site TMZ.≠ ≠"... I have been waiting, and waiting for the anticipation of an 'event movie' to make it into the 'public zeitgeist,' they quote Mr Bay as writing as well as pointing out that he calls the print campaign for the film an "abject failure," with a "pathetic presence" in the L.A. Times. Here refers to the profile of the movie on the MTV Video Awards as "so lame." referring to the fact that the first Transformers in 2007 had a 30-minute segment at the MTV Movie Awards, but this year the sequel's only support was in the form of lead actors Shia LeBeouf and Megan Fox presenting an award.

Bay makes a attack on Paramount head Sumner with his comment of "You all talk so glowingly about Transformers being the movie of the summer but unfortunately this has not gotten to the public.  I still run into so many people even this weekend with kids that ask "is that movie coming out this year?".  Your owner Sumner, went on air in wall street last week talking how Paramount was going to claim the summer with Star Trek and G.I Joe. I guess he didn't even know it was coming out either." which points out that the film was being poorly advertised.

Bay goes on to name drop Jerry Bruckheimer in the email with "Over the years Jerry Bruckheimer mentored me on event movies - he had a mantra - "A studio that does not make it an event, will it into an event, thinks the audience will just show up, will always be bittin in the ass".  Besides my good friend Steven, Jerry has made a lot more successful movies ten all of us".

Its not all bad news though as on the 6th June Michael sent Paramount Pictures an email praising them and saying that "Paramount is like family. Thank you all for busting your butts and bringing your 'A game' for the release of Transformers".

You can read the full emails here and here.
