I really don't think anyone thought Transformers was going to tank. It was a movie about giant robots...fighting. How could it fail? I think they were pissed off at the direction and then the disdain shown towards the fans.
The people who say "it will tank" have to be 12 and borderline mentally handicap.
But yeah. Movie fan boards are a den of hate. Check out AICN if you just want to read vile, putrid, unmanicured hatred.
I hate that people are writing this off because of Wayans and Levitt. That is just a bad idea. They should watch "Requiem for a Dream" and "Brick" and then get back to me.

I don't think I've ever seen a film that left me staring into space for a good 10 minutes afterwards thinking about just how depressing and great it was...(Requiem) I can only think of a few other films that had such a profound effect on me (Into The Wild & The Diving-Bell and the Butterfly being the other two)
Brick is also really good, so is most things Levitt is in (Mysterious Skin, The Lookout etc), I love him and think he is fantastic, I think people just think "3rd Rock" when they see him, and yeah he's alittle out there for a casting choice and not what we maybe wanted to see, but he's a fine actor, and I can't wait to see him as CC.
Obviously I understand some peoples reactions, because nobody wants GI Joe to be White Chicks 2 or something, but I think anyone with a rational state of mind knows we are going to get a great film and knows to reserve judgement on things until the actually see it!
Anyway, I am itching for some pictures, please someone for the love of God I need some pictures...just thinking that this is a year and a bit away is depressing.

The casting of Lee was made for atracting a worldwide audience, a good move if they want to avoid the american ultra patriotic theme.
