The Theme park attraction based on TRANSFORMERS movies opened at Universal Studios Singapore on Friday. Don't worry, my stateside friends! You'll get to enjoy it here too when the same ride debuts at Universal Studios in Hollywood in May 2012. They just need to start in Singapore first to help that theme park's popularity in that region. By the way, my sisters have visited Universal Studios in Singapore and they said that the place basically offers the same things as the one we have here in Hollywood. Obviously with this TRANSFORMERS theme ride, things have gotten a bit different in the one in Singapore. Via channelnewsasia Of course, Michael Bay was there for the opening day and of course the press asked him if he had any plans to tackle another TRANSFORMERS movie...
"How did I know someone's going to ask me this question today? We're talking about it, but there's nothing right now. I'm going to do a tiny movie first, then we'll talk about it, if I potentially do it."
That 'tiny movie' that Bay was referring to is PAIN AND GAIN. I guess anything with a budget below $100 Million is considered 'tiny' according to Bay.
"I hope so, because I think he made the best of the three with this last one. I certainly can’t imagine anybody other than Michael being equipped to make another Transformers. He’s invented a genre and he’s got the secret formula."
Previous report stated that Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner was in active discussion with Paramount, director Michael Bay and exec-producer Steven Spielberg about the potential TRANSFORMERS 4. And rumor had it they wanted to reboot it with a new star, Jason Statham. Nothing is confirmed at this point, I'm sure everyone involved is still enjoying the money from that godawful Transformers: Dark Of The Moon.
But let's back to TRANSFORMERS The ride at Universal Studios Singapore, shall we. So what's awesome about this bloody thing? Here's some excerpt to give you an idea..
The latest attraction promises to bring the ultimate 3-D battle between the Autobots and Decepticons with groundbreaking visual effects by Industrial Light & Magic, a division of Lucasfilm. It is also one of the most expensive rides at Universal Studios Singapore with Mr Bay lending his creative input on its development. Transformers fans will get to ride inside a never-before featured Autobot called EVAC and whizz through tunnels, cityscapes and across rooftops.
That sounds pretty cool! I hope it's cooler than the movies. Bay said he helped sculpt the story for the ride and figure out the shots they'd like to do and which character they'd use and that if he were to produce another TRANSFORMERS movie, it will feature the newest thing in Cinema technology.
