I’ll be honest here, I have never seen Transformers 2. (A crime? Maybe.) However, it might be actually worth my time if only to see these two seemingly despised characters: Skids and Mudflap. They’re being reported as racist caricature Autobots, and Micheal Bay himself is reportedly so sure that they’re not going to be in Transformers: Dark of the Moon that he is offering $25,000 to anyone who sees them in the movie.
Apparently, the first review of the movie went up over the weekend at AICN, and the review had included mention of the characters most hated. Bay had this to say, “After the internet posting of a nice review by someone who saw Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the writer had not been clear on one thing. He misstated that the Twins are in the film. They are not. So I am offering a $25,000 REWARD to anyone who can find them performing in Transformers 3, on July 1, when the movie opens.” The review on AICN has since been revised.
Oh, and one last thing, why in the world is this movie titled “Dark of the Moon”? Hhhuuuuurrrrrgghhgngn.[via /Film]
