Well, 'bout this time next year will see if director Michael Bay's effort to bring a classic, animated franchise to the live-action, big screen was a success or unmitigated disaster.
The date: 7 . 4 . 7
The film: TRANSFORMERS
The trailer is actually a little intriguing...but I'm just not sold that these CGI Transformers are really gonna work in "real-world" environments. I'd have to guess that there will be quite a bit of 360 degree blue-screen stuff and the efforts to get these 3-D models to sit nicely in actual live-action film will be minimal. A few really well done shots will probably be produced to "sell" the idea. The name of STEVE JABLONSKY appears in the trailer credits, so that's some good news.
