Michael Bay By The Numbers
Michael Bay is a man who likes his movies big and the intellect of his moviegoers small. His movies are simple, loud and full of explosions – to him, a good script is secondary when you have $200 million budget and Megan Fox as a lead. And while we agree with pretty much every single piece of Michael Bay hate out on the net today (the sheer volume of hate gives us hope for humanity), you can’t argue with his box office results. Adjusted for inflation, each of the movies he has directed has made well over $100 million, with only two (Bad Boys and The Island) falling shy of $200 million – though both came pretty damn close ($198 million and $178 million respectively). The infographic below breaks down his career by the numbers. All figures are adjusted for inflation.
