It took longer than some may like, but those waiting on an apology for Armageddon received their day in the sun. Director Michael Bay, he of the things-go-boom school of cinema, admitted the Ben Affleck-led thriller wasn’t exactly his best work.
“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. 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.
Now, if we could just get an apology from Aerosmith for the amount of radio airplay that “Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” song was given.
