Let’s check in with Michael Bay, who’s had a big summer with two awful movies performing mediocrely at the domestic box office, only to skate to success on the back of an expanding Chinese market hungry for any output at all! Hey Michael! How’s it going, buddy? Been a good summer for you—somehow despite making two terrible movies no one likes you’ve made money! Michael Bay: [finger guns] Pew pew! That’s good to hear. Full Story

Are Autobots and Decepticons robots or aliens? I can see Sarah palming her face. This is a real question I just asked backstage at The Social and there were some eyerolls. The answer is that Transformers are a “robot alien race”. FINE. Anyway, the 4th Transformers movie was the major feature at the Paramount Cinemacon presentation. Full Story

Check out Mark Wahlberg in Hong Kong today working on Transformers 4 with Michael Bay who wants you to see how hot he is and that’s why Victoria’s Secret models will date him. Last week Bay was attacked by an air conditioner – click here Full Story

Dame Helen Mirren was in Hong Kong last night to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Mandarin Oriental. Two deranged brothers did not try to kick her ass with an air conditioner. You think Scandal is preposterous? How about Michael Bay? And that’s real life! Click here Full Story

But nobody seemed to tell him that. While filming Trans4mers in Hong Kong, Bay was approached—on set!—by two Chinese brothers who demanded he pay them HK$100,000 and the argument ended with one of the brothers assaulting Bay and three police officers before being arrested. Bay was injured but wasn’t taken to the hospital. Full Story

Variety reported yesterday that Megan Fox will star as April O’Neill in Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Bay also confirmed it on his website. It is not an animated movie. When Sarah messaged to tell me this, my first reaction was disappointment. Full Story

This conversation occurred on October 31 between Michael Bay and Marc Evans, president of production at Paramount. Evans replaced Brad Weston just days after this conversation in 2010. Once again, this is 100% accurate*, and the conversation took place on a fan boat in a swimming pool. Full Story

I mean, when I see Mark Wahlberg’s mega pecs being directed by Michael Bay, I know FOR SURE that Pain & Gain is a movie that will feature interesting actresses playing interesting characters. Pain & Gain is a real(ish) account of a group of muscleheads extorting a rich dude (Tony Shalhoub) and the sh-t that goes down when they f-ck it all up. Full Story

Written by Sarah Earlier this week Michael Bay sent a letter to the projectionists at movie theaters, imploring them to screen Transformers 3 with the 3D specs he specified. If you haven’t heard of this controversy: as 3D has gained popularity with filmmakers and audiences (though I would say that audience interest is waning), movie theaters have invested a ton of money into getting the newest and best in 3D technology—new projectors, new light bulbs, new lenses, special training for projectionists on how to operate the equipment. Full Story

I interviewed Megan Fox on the red carpet at TIFF 2009. She was promoting Jennifer’s Body. She was just 23 at the time. She’d been shooting her mouth off for 2 years since Transformers. It was easy to dislike her. I disliked her. But after talking to her I disliked her less. Click here Full Story
