    The only full script for the movie exist with me and the original writer's. A select few crew members have read parts, some of the leads have read full scripts - but the number is under ten. One person from Paramount, three from Dreamworks.

    We have leaked several scripts, some treatmentsand various scenes that are used to mislead the internet. We have mocked up wrong schedules and call sheets with fake scenes on them. When shooting scenes we don't refer to character names and use wrong faces on the poles representing different robots that are going to be placed in - It's a lot of work but seems to have worked out because no one knows the story of the movie besides Sam going to college.

    Wow, sneaky.

    One question, Johnny were you asking about the TF1 script? Because it sounds like here that Mr. Bay is describing the TF2 script.

    This doesn't really jive with what others involved with the Transformers franchise have said.

    IDW Publishing, the company writing a series of comics which will tell the story leading up to Revenge of the Fallen have stated in two seperate interviews that they have the script for the film for the purposes of tieing their comics into the continuity of Revenge, and of course so they can write the comic adaptation of the movie.

    Interview with Chris Ryall and Simon Furman:
    http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=17412

    Interview with Chris Mowry on MTV Splash Page (MTV being own by Viacom, who also own Paramount and Dreamworks):
    http://splashpage.mtv.com/2008/07/28...on-2009-movie/


    I would certainly hope they have some reasonably accurate form of the script so they can do their work. And logically, you would think that Hasbro would have some copy of the script as well.

    I appreciate you taking some time to answer my question, but I was asking about the first movie script.

    Whoa..easy killer. I'm pretty sure he never thought that. It's his work. Think about it. If you knew how the movie was going to be from begining to end before it comes out, why go pay $13 for a ticket and drive x amount of miles to go see it? It's really smart of him to keep it a secret. He wasn't trying to fool or say we are stupid. He's actually being nice and responding like a friend would. A close friend. I love ya Mr. Bay!!!

    to be honest if i knew everything about the movie i wouldn't give a toss i'd still be there front row and centre to see it as many times as i did the first and any other movie and all those people whinging about it, you should just get over it and be happy he decided to make the sequal as quick as he did he could have left us in suspense alot longer than he did. You could list of the names of all the transformers but just because you see a few cars around don't mean you know who will be who (except for returning transformers).So I say sit back go with the flow and wait for Mike to work his magic

    The best place to sit is actually 2/3 of the way back that's where all the sound mixers aim the sound at so if you sit there you get perfect balance of sounds. You should also sit slightly to the side and not directly centre so you can have the stereo effect.

    You know I don't actually like sitting anywhere near a speaker - the places are so loud it makes you ears hurt already - so perhaps the best balance of not getting deafend and not craning your neck would suit me.

    Incidently I know a couple of bits more than Sam goes to college, and suspect more still.

    The set reports about Alice and how Sam relates to Michaela in movie # 2 seem to all hold water with what's been seen.

    And there's been little tip bits in the various movie magazines, and on peoples blogs, who said things they probably were not supposed to.

    So with a little hunting you can find a few things out beyond Sam goes to College.

    For example there's a high probability threre's an SR-71 Transformer in it.

    I guess my post made its (unintended) mark if the censoring of those two IDW interviews I linked is anything to go by...
