Earlier this year, it was reported that Transformers: Revenge of the the Fallen would be somewhere over the two hour mark. Michael Bay now reveals to MTV that the final edit of Transformers 2 is in the can (or on the Avid digital hard drive) and runs 147 minutes, “four minutes longer than the last one.” Bay also followed thee answer up with a smart ass remark about how he doesn’t answer to Hollywood’s obsession with running times.

“I don’t ever talk (to executives) about run times,” he grinned. “Studios always ask, ‘What’s the run time?’ And I’m like ‘If you enjoy the movie, do you care?”

And yes, I know this is the third story of the day that involves Michael Bay, but trust me I didn’t plan it that way.
