Michael Bay Doesn’t Care About ‘Transformers’ Haters

Michael Bay Doesn’t Care About ‘Transformers’ Haters
Greg Gilman — The Wrap

When MTV asked the blockbuster director about “fanboys” who are critical of the franchise, he was very confident even those who “hate” it will go see the fourth installment, “Age of Extinction,” in theaters.

“They love to hate, and I don’t care; let them hate,” Bay said. “They’re still going to see the movie! I think it’s good to get a little tension. Very good.”

So good, in fact, that “Transformers 4” is expected to be the summer’s first $100 million domestic opener.

I hate myself for going to see this film later tonight. What penance should I do for this evil deed I am about to commit? I’m only seeing it for the podcast. But I still hate myself for it and wish I didn’t have to feed this awful, awful machine. I feel icky.
