This is encouraging news.
Director Michael Bay says Steven Spielberg, who serves as executive producer on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, has seen Bay's first cut of the movie - and has given it his full approval.
Bay posted the following on his message board:
Steven Spielberg sat next to me in a big 100 person theater at Sony today. There were 98 empty seats. The lights came up after we just watched my cut of Revenge of the Fallen. He turned to me and said
"It's awesome". He felt this movie was better then the first - and probably my best, who knows - at this point in a movie you start to lose your objectivity. I just hope the fans like it. I'm going to start putting it in front of audiences in a few weeks - no you are not invited, yet.
