Michael Bay Apologizes For Armageddon ... Or Does He?

Hold you horses everyone: Michael Bay has NOT apologized for Armageddon. He definitely should, and many believed that he had this week, but the director has since written on a forum claiming that The Miami Herald, whom it looked like he made the comments to, have misquoted him.

The Herald has reported the director, who has upcoming films Pain & Gain and Transformers 4 on the way, as saying “I will apologize for Armageddon, because we had to do the whole movie in 16 weeks. It was a massive undertaking. That was not fair to the movie.” He apparently went onto say, “I would redo the entire third act if I could. But the studio literally took the movie away from us. It was terrible. My visual effects supervisor had a nervous breakdown, so I had to be in charge of that. I called James Cameron and asked ‘What do you do when you’re doing all the effects yourself?’ But the movie did fine.”

However, in a forum post Bay has refuted that he straight-up said sorry for the film, which starred Bruce Willis as an oil rigger who seamlessly transfers these skills to stopping a whacking great asteroid hitting earth. “One press writer has gone too far in reporting false information,” Bay retorted. “He has printed the bare minimum of my statement which in effect have twisted my words and meaning. I'm not in the slightest going to apologize for the third movie in my movie career, a film called Armageddon.”

Continuing, Bay wrote “What I clearly said to the reporter, is I wish I had more time to edit the film, specifically the the third act. He asked me in effect what would you change if you could in your movies if you could go back. I said, I wish we had a few more weeks in the edit room on Armageddon. And still today Armageddon, is still one of the most shown movies on cable TV. And yes, I'm proud of the movie. Enough said.”
