How much time does it take to really get a story going?
Well Bay has announced the newest installment of the Transformers universe will run 150 minutes before credits!
Previously the films ran143 minutes for Transformers, 150 minutes for Revenge of the Fallen, and 154 minutes for Dark of the moon.
So it seems to fall right in the middle., which is a good thing.
One thing I fear and so do many others that I have talked to is how will we feel about the new cast?
Bay did a wonderful job introducing us to Sam in the first film. Will it be an easy transition for fans to accept Wahlberg as the new lead? Will 150 minutes be enough time to get as deep into the character as the previous origin film?
Some I have talked to have stated "fans do not go to see the cast, they go to see the giant robots and explosions."
This may be tru for some people however actual fans get deep into these characters. I for one am excited to see Wahlberg take on the lead. I just hope his character was written in well.
So as asked in the title. Can it be done twice? Can we fall in love with a new lead cast?
