Transformers 3 Will Have Fewer Explosions (Huh?)

transformers300Michael “There’s no scene that can’t be improved by more explosions” Bay is apparently scaling back on the wholesale destruction for the third instalment of the Transformers franchise.

In a recent interview with the LA Times, Bay claimed that the next movie wouldn’t be as “robot-heavy”. That’s a good thing because the last movie had so many bits of flying metal, it’s a miracle if you didn’t lose an eye.

“There will be a nice crescendo ending,” Bay said. “It gets much more into the robot character. The last time you kind of met a few of the robots; this time you’re gonna get a much cooler landscape.”

Maybe Mudflap and Skids enrol in a remedial English programme, Optimus Prime will have a mid-life crisis and Megatron will decide that hugs are much better than wanton destruction.

Or maybe Shia “charisma black hole” Le Bouef will actually do something interesting. Stranger things have happened.

Actually even if “less” stuff blows up, that’s still enough room to blow the equivalent of the entire defence budget of the UK in one take. I would have thought that Bay would be keen to compete with Roland Emmerich for “Most destroyed landmarks in a motion picture” award.

It’s almost all we’ve got to go on for the 2011 release so far, so speculate away.

StumbleUpon It!
