Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is mere months away.
Earlier today, during at the Television Critics Association press tour, screenwriter Roberto Orci spoke to IGN about the wildly-anticipated sequel.
Storywise, how does the sequel compare to the first one?
It's an extreme [jump] from the first one. The outrageous, crazy humor is more outrageous, but then so is the serious side of it and so is the stakes of the Transformers plot and the seriousness with which some of their mythology is treated. So it kind of swings wildly between those two extremes, and that I think was one of the successful parts of the first movie. Again, some of the die hard fans will be equally annoyed at some of the things they see, but I can also say they will be more gratified than they were for the first one, to see how some of the Transformers story and how their battle takes place in the second one.
