Michael Bay is the director of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," as well as the two preceding movies in the franchise: "Transformers" (2007) and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" (2009).

After launching his career as an award-winning commercial and music video director, Michael Bay quickly emerged as one of Hollywood's boldest and most bankable feature film directors. Characterized by his aggressive visual style and high-octane action sequences that have become the L.A. native's cinematic signature, the films that Bay has directed and produced via his two production companies have surpassed $5.3 billion in worldwide ticket sales.

His impressive directing resume includes the films "Bad Boys" and "Bad Boys 2," both starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence; "The Rock," starring Nicolas Cage, Sean Connery and Ed Harris; "Armageddon," starring Ben Affleck, Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton and Liv Tyler; "Pearl Harbor," starring Affleck, Josh Hartnett and Kate Beckinsale; "The Island," starring Ewan McGregor, Scarlett Johansson, Djimon Hounsou and Sean Bean; as well as the trilogy of "Transformers" blockbuster movies starring Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro. The latest installment, "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," is currently the 4th highest grossing movie of all time.

His next film is the dark comedy, "Pain and Gain," starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Tony Shalhoub and Ed Harris. Based on actual events, this thriller chronicles the preposterous yet diabolical exploits of three bodybuilders who kidnap a wealthy businessman only to find themselves trapped by their own schemes.

Bay is also the founder and principal partner of Platinum Dunes, a production company originally conceived to give talented commercial and video directors a chance to break into the feature world, as well as being a partner in Digital Domain, a state-of-the-art digital effects house.
