The movie Transformers released in 2007 was one of the most successful movies of that year and was estimated to have grossed about $709 million worldwide. The success of the movie encouraged its director, Michael Bay to come up with its sequel. Titled Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, this movie released in 2009, too was a commercial success, but was plagued with negative reviews especially for the presence of African-American stereo-typed robot twins, Skids and Mudflap. Now that Bay is on the verge of releasing the third movie of Transformers series ??? Transformers: Dark of the Moon, rumors have again started floating about the presence of Skids and Mudflap in it.
Many reports circulating on the grapevine have been indicating the presence of these racist creations on the sets as well as in the movie trailer of the soon to be released Transformers movie, with some claiming that the twins have even made the final cut of the film! However, considering the barrage of criticism Bay had faced in the past, he intends to keep these twin auto-bots totally out of the new movie. Not just this, he is even ready to take a bet regarding the presence of these twins in his latest movie and has offered a reward of $25,000 to anyone who can even catch a glimpse of these twin auto-bots in the latest Transformers movie scheduled to be released in July 2011. For those claiming that the twins have been observed in the trailers, he suggested that it could be so because trailer houses often include shots which are not even a part of the movie.
However, who is true ??? the grapevine or Michael Bay will only be known later in July this year. Till then, well let???s just keep speculating!
