Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Just yesterday we got a really good look at this summer's explosive sequel Transformers: Dark of the Moon by way of a pretty impressive full length trailer. And with all that excitement, Paramount Pictures is looking to keep the hype machine rolling with this new theatrical poster for the anticipated blockbuster sequel. As usual, the poster features a great hero shot of Optimus Prime along with his human companion Shia LaBeouf. There's even room for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to appear on her first franchise poster. It's not terrible, but Photoshop jobs like this make me long for Drew Struzan's posters again.

Here's the first official poster for Transformers: Dark of the Moon from Yahoo! Movies:

Transformers: Dark of the Moon Poster

In this movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky must help his robot friends defeat enemies like Shockwave.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is again directed by everyone's favorite explosive director, Michael Bay, of the previous two Transformers movies as well as Bad Boys I and II, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and The Island. The screenplay was written by Ehren Kruger, who co-wrote the Revenge of the Fallen script but went solo this time, and also worked on The Ring, The Skeleton Key and Brothers Grimm screenplays. Paramount is bringing Transformers 3 to theaters everywhere in 3D starting July 1st. Bring on summer!

Dustin Fuston on Apr 29, 2011


I just hope that they finally include the Transformers Robots in Disguise theme music in the opening and end credits of the movie. The Transformers! More than meets the eye! Autobots wage their battle to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons! The Transformers! Robots in disguise! The Transformers! More than meets the eye! The Transformers!

No it wasn't... it was awesome

Love Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, very attractive and sexy.

would have been a great poster without the bimbo and the spastic chipmunk

Get Whiteley outta there!

Xerxexx on Apr 29, 2011


My ONLY real complaint so far. Seriously, did we actually need another love interest after Megan Fox left?

Cruzer on Apr 29, 2011


I would have preferred if they killed off Fox's character and left Sam depressed/angry that would have offered an even darker tone for the film, but no...we are gonna be subjected to a petty break-up and an idiotic new relationship. That's one of the biggest reasons I don't wanna see it. Fox is at least an actress...Whiteley is not. I would if given the choice introduced no love interest.

Xerxexx on Apr 29, 2011


Maybe they will. I haven't read anywhere that they broke up. But you shouldn't be so upset about it. Remember she claims that she opted out of the third movie and not fighting to say that MB fired her. He even quoted, "P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back," he said. "I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture." Plus the script was already written with a love interest. You want them to change the entire story right before shooting and production?

The_Phantom on Apr 29, 2011


I'd rather them not write in a new love interest. Its a waste that disrupts the Romance sub-plot of RotF.

Xerxexx on Apr 29, 2011


It's not like it would've been hard to change something as trivial as that, you wouldn't even notice it; not with all the crappy dialogue that comes with any Michael Bay film, and then there's always the fighting robots!

Cruzer on Apr 29, 2011


It is trivial and really a back seat to the robot death matches. I guess I just like to complain about Fox's departure and Bay's stupid decision to cast Whiteley

Xerxexx on Apr 29, 2011


Grace Jones would have made a great love interest.

Lagoya on Apr 30, 2011



Xerxexx on May 1, 2011


Hergh bleh..! Why did they have to photoshop Sam and Whateverhernamewillbe into it? I mean, does anybody care about the humans in these movies to begin with? I know I don't.

Michael Bay's Big Racist Robots Part III Looks fantastic...

Simon on Apr 29, 2011


Cool poster! Rosie just doesn't seem to belong in the flick, let alone the poster! I do miss Megan, though. A (new) romantic interest is not even necessary here at all....On another note, I think it would be cool if Bay included the Stan Bush single, "The Touch", in this flick....being that he blew a cool opportunity last sequel with the Optimus Prime resurrection. Now, that would just be awesome!

Woooo! Transformers: Dark of the Moon will be the biggest movie ever! Watch out Avatar! Oh, God, the only thing that’s going through my head to describe this movie, it’s like sex with an orgasm at the end of it! Whereas the first two movies were like you have sex but you never get the orgasm. A lot of stopping and starting but… oh, I wish I hadn’t said that.

Natalya on Apr 29, 2011


meh...big whoop

Jericho on Apr 29, 2011


whoooooaahhh. I´m so tired.

hewitt on Apr 29, 2011


Is it just me or does Optimus look more pissed off than ever?

Chris A. on Apr 29, 2011


Bay please quit leaking lubricants all over the audience.

Anonymous on Apr 29, 2011


Oooook ... Optimus Prime is going to make Shia and Rosie look like optional side-dishes. With a little more defined idea of what OP is really packing in his mega arsenal ...

Bettybmusing on Apr 29, 2011


I enjoy these Robot's slaughtering each other. Michael Bay knows how to make a popcorn movie.
