McG, Bay clash over robot blockbusters

McG has hit out at director Michael Bay for criticising his upcoming blockbuster Terminator Salvation.

Writing on his official site, Bay recently noted an apparent similarities between the new Terminator movie, which featured a giant robot in its latest trailer, and Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen.

“We’ve seen the great year end movies, and watched the upcoming clips of the upcoming summer fare,” wrote Bay. “We’ve seen certain movies coming out even try to duplicate Transformer size robots in their ads. Please, come on.”

McG admitted that Bay’s comments had annoyed him, telling Comcast: “It bothers me, to tell you the truth. Ultimately, our large robots have nothing to do with the Transformers robots. I say with respect, giant robots have been the theme of film for a real long time. So we want to do everything we can to create separation.”
