Never shy about tooting his own horn, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay posted on his message board that producer Steven Spielberg loved his cut of the sequel film.

"[He] sat next to me in a big 100 person theater at Sony today," Bay wrote. "There were 98 empty seats. The lights came up after we just watched my cut of Revenge of the Fallen. He turned to me and said, 'It's awesome.' He felt this movie was better than the first—and probably my best, who knows—at this point in a movie you start to lose your objectivity. I just hope the fans like it. I'm going to start putting it in front of audiences in a few weeks—no, you are not invited, yet."

Bay said that he continues to edit the movie. "We have 60 days left," he wrote. "Let me tell you, it will be a race to finish. It's 12 at night, and we are still working here in the edit room. Everyone at [Industrial Light & Magic] and [Digital Domain] are killing themselves right now; they are doing a stellar job on the effects. We also just finished our trailer, which is coming out with Wolverine" on May 1.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opens June 24.
