Has Michael Bay gone too far with the ridiculous stunts for the third (and potentially final) Transformers movie? A new viral teaser for the movie suggests yes... and teases another Paramount movie at the same time.
Latino Review is running a weird tease for the third Transformers movie that also runs the joke of Les Grossman (Tom Cruise's character from Tropic Thunder, soon to be spun off into his own movie and not as funny to the rest of the world as movie insiders believe) further into the ground: A fake angry email from Grossman to Bay complaining about the size of the stunts for TF3. Some choice excerpts:
Well, it didn't take long, did it Mr. Bay? We gave you tons of money, your stars have returned, we washed and waxed the cars for you, we got rid of that tattoo wearing scarecrow and replaced her with a wax dummy and you still managed to make a mess of things.
What in the blue bonnet hell are you doing over there? The fine city of Chicago is letting us shoot our sequel to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (now available on DVD/Blu-Ray) and you go and blow up an entire city block? Were you home schooled? Have you become unstable?
The last guy who made me this angry was Tom Cruise and guess what I did to his career? He's now making movies like Knight and Day. And if you keep this crap up, the only thing you're gonna be exploding are toilets as a plumber because I will run your ass out of this town if I hear from the mayor again.
Finish it up and let's get this movie going to the next location. I know we're shooting in the space station and NASA has been very accommodating to us. But if hear that you're blowing up things in outer space I will leave you out there. You can charter a ship to Cybertron or wherever it is those damn robots come from and go blow up their stupid planet. You idiot ass.
Am I the only one that finds this a really odd way of hyping the movie? Especially the way that Latino Review plays it relatively straight...
