MTV had caught up with director/producer Michael Bay to speak with him briefly about Transformers 3: Dark Of The Moon. Here is his comment about the story of the film: “We just have, I think, a better story. It’s epic and it happens in a city, so it’s more accessable because you recognize stuff; it’s […]
Maybe it’s just me, but I get the feeling that 3-D was made expressly for Michael Bay movies…
