Not a lot of folks know this, but conventional theatres can only handle a limited amount of robots punching each other. If robots punch each other too much, then the conventional theatre screen bursts into flames and you can hear the screams of the damned. It’s an expensive and creepy restriction.
But director Michael Bay will take advantage of IMAX and use its mighty screen size to produce a slightly longer cut that features more robot fighting. On his website he notes that he shot four scenes with IMAX cameras and those scenes will fill the screen. He also informs “haters” to “beware”. Bay knows that every time he fills an IMAX screen, a “hater” gets rectal bleeding. I’d go into how all this works but it’s highly technical and not very exciting. Exciting is robots fighting. You’ll probably see a lot of that when “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” hits conventional and IMAX theatres on June 24th.
