Yesterday, a perpetually optimistic DreamWorks announced a July 4, 2011, release date for Transformers 3. Today, celebrated director Michael Bay says, via his official website, that they jumped the gun:

I said I was taking off a year from Transformers. Paramount made a mistake in dating Transformers 3 — they asked me on the phone — I said yes to July 4 — but for 2012 — whoops! Not 2011!!! That would mean I would have to start prep in September. No way. My brain needs a break from fighting robots.

Still, though — look at that sentence with four em dashes in it! Even when he's tired, that guy really does things all the way, doesn't he?
