Transformers: Dark of the Moon director Michael Bay has published a thank you note to fans:

I just want to take the opportunity to thank all the fans around the world for letting me have fun with the Transformers franchise. It has been a wonderful opportunity to have worked with about 4000 crew members around the world. These artists are some of the very best in the entire film business. I?m honored to have had you work along side me. We had an amazing time. Dark of the Moon has some of the most technically challenging sequences ever shot. And shot in 3D. I must urge you to find the very best theatre and see this movie in that format. 3D was a forethought, not an afterthought in this movie. I?m glad Jim Cameron and Steven Spielberg really convinced me to shoot in this new technology. We used and invented many new techniques to make the 3D sharper, brighter and more color contrast. I think theatre owners heard their audience that they need to respect the specs of the projectors and not dim the bulbs to save money. Many theaters are presenting it in the brand new 7.1 sound, which is awesome. This is the most complex, intricate sound track that me and my Academy Awarding winning sound team have done. They really out did themselves to make this a big picture experience. Hopefully you will have as much fun watching this movie as we all had making it.  Thanks, Michael Bay

Shia LaBeouf says Transformers 3 is the best 3D movie ever made:

"We took the 3-D cameras out of the 'Avatar' stages and put them on the head of a dude jumping out of a plane in Chicago while a building is exploding. For real. Four or five dudes actually," LaBeouf said. "It's the greatest 3-D film ever made. It's an amalgamation of ideas from Jim Cameron, Steven [Spielberg] and Michael [Bay]. " .... "The last hour of this movie is the greatest action sequence of Mike's career, which would put it on the same level as the greatest action ever made," LaBeouf said. "You don't breathe for the last hour. There's just no letup, but it's also not completely overwhelming and disconnected, as the second movie was. You didn't know what was fighting what or where you were geography-wise. There was no way to be able to tell a story, whereas this is very 'Black Hawk Down' action. The geography is very clear. There's only four or five dudes you need to be following. The enemy is very clear. The second movie was so ... complicated. The best movies are simple."

AMC president and general manager Charlie Collier broke his silence on last week's finale of The Killing:

"We underestimated the passion of viewers have for closure within this season," Collier says. "It was never our intention to misguide the viewer. The audience has an important voice, we heard them and don't take them for granted." ... "I stand by [showrunner] Veena Sud, and risk-taking is what we do; cliffhangers are a staple of TV and a huge part of mysteries," Collier says. "If I could do anything differently, it would be to manage expectations."
