Is Michael Bay ripping off himself?
The Internet is buzzing over a video suggesting that the director recycled clips from his 2005 film The Island in his latest movie, Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
A YouTube user has posted a video comparing car chase scenes from the two movies, in which certain shots are strikingly similar. [Watch below.]
Dark of the Moon, the third installment in Bay’s Transformers franchise, opened Wednesday and has become the third best worldwide debut of all time, smashing records and grossing a whopping $372 million through Sunday.
With the actual July 4th holiday still to go, the movie should finish Monday with a total opening gross of $405.8 million.
Dark of the Moon stars Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Tyrese Gibson and Patrick Dempsey.
LaBeouf has suggested this will be his last Transformers film.
The Island, a thriller starring Scarlett Johansson and Ewan McGregor, earned $163 million at the worldwide box office during its theatrical run.
