First Promo Poster for 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' Surfaces

December 7, 2010
The first trailer for next summer's blockbuster sequel Transformers: Dark of the Moon is supposed to hit sometime tomorrow, but a new promo poster, maybe even an official teaser poster, has surfaced already. JoBlo got ahold of the image, and it's actually just a better quality version of a poster at the 2010 Licensing International Expo earlier this year. It's a simple, and not entirely unexpected image of Optimus Prime standing triumphantly with lots of orange embers flying about, likely from one of Michael Bay's trademark explosions. It's not too amazing, but this will surely have people getting excited and complaining all at once.
Here's the poster for Transformers: Dark of the Moon from the guys at JoBlo:
Though the plot is still under wraps (with the exception of some spoiler-filled tidbits that have surfaced online), Transformers: Dark of the Moon will employ all new giant robots fighting for supremacy and survival. Franchise stars like Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel and John Tuturro are all returning for the sequel and will be joined by new cast members like Patrick Dempsey, Alan Tudyk, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, Ken Jeong and a fancy new Ferrari autobot. Stay tuned for the first official look at this anticipated sequel with the debut of the first trailer sometime tomorrow. Thoughts?

can't wait. Michael Bay is my favorite director. now after this he can finally go and make Bad Boys 3 like he promised. i hope it comes out in the IMAX like the last 2 movies. Yes part 2 was a little dissapointing with the twins but i still liked it.

I won't bitch about it......I'm optimistic this flick will more than make up for "Revenge of the Fallen". 🙂

TF3 = Total Farce 3 Bring on the robot parts.
Crapola on Dec 7, 2010
Wow. This poster could have been used exactly the same for Transformers 1 and 2.
tatsuono on Dec 7, 2010
The real question is: Are you guys going to be an optimistic prime, or a negatron?
Johnny Heartless on Dec 7, 2010
I may be mistaken, but I thought TF2 was shit because it was in production during the writers strike and Bay had to make the summer release for the studio no matter what, thus the lack of a decent script? Is this correct?
Raph on Dec 7, 2010
Looks okay, wanna see the trailer first though..speaking of giant robots, when are we gonna get any news on that Gaiking project and the Taekwon V movie also?

Someone should photoshop a 'W' next to 'TF 3'
carfonexdo on Dec 7, 2010
I am excited for this. I look forward too it.

These are the only movies that I feel good bitching about. They really are terrible films. This poster is nothing. It looks like some elementary school kid's binder cover.
Cracky on Dec 7, 2010
I've seen better fan made posters. in fact i've seen fan made trailers better than the film before this one.
Josef on Dec 7, 2010

And let's go back to the poster ... The topic is just about the poster !!! 😉 Nothing new about this poster .. I can see it is a bit backward step as the poster from the fist movie : http://www.impawards.com/2007/transformers_ver13.html The poster from the first movies is better than this !!! " Just my opinion " ... 😉 --------------------------------------- and now if we speak about this movie ... the only thing I really care is : The visual Effects ... !!! It is really shame that the both previews once didn't got the Oscar !!! ... Nominations yes but no winning ... !! .. and the only reason for that is the video clip style of Michael Bay in making movies ... Action-Speed-Explosions !!! ... If they make a bit more slow motion in the action scenes in the perfect moments I believe this movie will win Oscar for the best Visual Effects .. !!! 😉

Can't wait for more 'fights' that look like two junkyard piles rolling down a hill.
Chris on Dec 7, 2010
If someone actually made a transformers movie I might get excited but since its just more Bayformers then I have nothing but animosity towards it
Jimmy Love on Dec 7, 2010
LAME. wow a dark optimus prime.
CHAD on Dec 7, 2010
the tittle definately sucks and this teaser poster makes no sence at all but what the hell im a sucker for these films 😛
DaftPUNKFAN on Dec 7, 2010
Okay so Carfonexdo hit on the idea of WT3. I managed to work some photoshoppe magic to create just that. I also created a much more fitting Michael Bay image. Kaboom! It isn't a Bay movie unless shit gets blowed up.
Crapola on Dec 7, 2010
#28 YUS! that is awesome 🙂
carfonexdo on Dec 7, 2010
TF3 = Terrible Film 3
Eh on Dec 7, 2010
Optimus Prime needs to be a cab-over. #13.
josef on Dec 7, 2010
@30 LOL good one, I was going to say Team Fortress 3 😛 Titties Fucking Tom Ford Tri Force Tree Frogs Tsk File Tick Fever this list goes on and on.

Featuring a surprise appearance from Optimus Prime! This has me wondering why they didn't put the official title of the movie on it. I understand that this poster was shown prior to any official statement regarding the title, but still, a little update woulda been nice. Now, my two cents on the franchise. They're not good movies. They weren't made too be good movies. I think they were just made to be fun movies. They fulfill the quota needed for a summer blockbuster. There's no real purpose to the movie, but is definitely enjoyable, if not impressive, given the boundaries the sfx pushed.
Gav on Dec 7, 2010
for all of you hating on the movie.. why y'all, do a movie of transformers then.. if y'all can say that is a shitty movie and bay sucks so go and film a movie of transformers.. what?? oh yeah.. because you dont have the talent and money to do a movie.. thats why.. so quit talking shit when all you are the really shitty ones.. when you make a movie as big as any movie then you can criticised all you want.. lame dumbs with no life.. still you're goin to see the movie 2,11,18,25,26,30 lame dumb asses i hate when people say a movie sucks when they dont even know how to film one..

Burn in hell, this film reprsents everything I despise when it comes to hollywood.

@ #28 Crapola Hilarious. Thanks for the laughs. 😀
JustinWhy on Dec 8, 2010
@22 That was one of the most hilarious satirical posts I've ever read on this site. You totally nailed the ignorance and the purposefully poor spelling and grammar. I doff my cap to you, good sir. @34 You've got the ignorance down, but you have to work on the poor spelling and grammar. Anyway, I'll go see it cause I like 'splosions as much as the next guy, but I also love sitting there in a theater with a huge crowd of people, all of us basically watching an Asylum movie, but none of them seem to understand that.
Squiggly_P on Dec 8, 2010
Cheers Justin, but credit has to go Carfonexdo for coming up with the idea, I just made the pictures.
Crapola on Dec 8, 2010
I am thinking Bay is working his ass off this time to bring a better Transformers movie with less humor and more decent script.
