Michael Bay Apologizes For Armageddon, Squashes Megan Fox's Transformers Return

michael bay armageddon apology transformers 4 no megan fox

This is a Hollywood first!!

While giving a promotional interview for the forthcoming 'roid rage action-dramedy Pain & Gain, famed director Michael Bay SHOCKED the dookie out of our kabookie by apologizing for making several one crappy movie!!

The man was displeased with the Bruce Willis, Liv Tyler, and Ben Affleck big-time blockbuster Armageddon, and he told the Miami Herald as much.

He admitted:

I will apologize for Armageddon, because we had to do the whole movie in 16 weeks. It was a massive undertaking. That was not fair to the movie. I would redo the entire third act if I could. But the studio literally took the movie away from us. It was terrible. My visual effects supervisor had a nervous breakdown, so I had to be in charge of that. I called James Cameron and asked ‘What do you do when you’re doing all the effects yourself?’ But the movie did fine."

First of all, we think it's cool he can admit to releasing a sub-par product. Most directors wouldn't!

While we actually kind of enjoyed the cheesy doomsday movie and it's accompanying Aerosmith song, the sentiment is noble!

Secondly, Mike really needs to be addressing the biggest blemish on his anyone's resume: Pearl Harbor.

The late Roger Ebert once described that abhorrent waste of celluloid by saying:

Pearl Harbor is a two-hour movie squeezed into three hours, about how on Dec. 7, 1941, the Japanese staged a surprise attack on an American love triangle.

Ouch! But enough about mediocre movies starring Mr. Affleck, LOLz!!

The director also revealed that ultra-hottie Megan Fox wouldn't reprise her role in Transformers 4!

We knew their relationship was rocky at best, but her absence in the upcoming robo-flick feels like the final nail in their collaborative coffin!

Mark Wahlberg and the surgically improved Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson star in Pain & Gain, which opens wide April 26.

    You have a short memory, didnt you already post news before she was going to be in his effort to ruin TNMT? So they cant hate each other that much. I thought Armageddon was alright, its been a while since i last saw it but the pure silly cheesiness worked for it (why else would you have that sound track?). Pearl Harbour on the other had was just bad, bad, really really really bad. I have a soft spot for Bad Boys 2, thought that was fun. Transformers, if he was trying to make a movie about robots beating the shit out of each other while looking awesome and nothing much else…well he did that perfectly…..

    He should just apologise for his entire career. Armageddon was amongst the best of a bad, bad bunch so he has a long list of films to apologise for first.

    Pearl Harbor was my fave movie. I cried for hours. I don't understand the hatred. It was romantic, sad, had hot actors. What else do you want? It definitively evoked more emotion then Titanic, yet everyone loved that stupid movie.

    Oh my God, Perez. He was misquoted on the interview. It was taken out of context. He just wished he had had more time doing the editing. He doesn't "hate" the movie. There's no story here, once again.

    Megan Fox won't be in Transformers 4 because "Michael Bay" himself just cast her in Teenage Miutant Ninja Turtles. Christ, you even reproted that "cut and paste" style 2 weeks ago. Not everyone holds a grudge like you do, Mr. Troublemaker. Also, as a new mother, I don't think Megan would want to do two movies at the same time. If she appeared in Transformers 4, it would probably just be a cameo.

    I liked Pearl Harbor, but I really like battle scenes, and that movie had a really long one, so that could be why I liked it so much.
