Shockwave - Transformers: Dark of the Moon

July 1 in 3D. I love that this movie is so epic, and so much of a sequel, that it doesn't even need a tagline. Its tagline is its release date and the fact that Michael Bay is making this in 3D. Yahoo has unveiled a very wide new banner for Transformers: Dark of the Moon this time featuring a Decepticon that we haven't actually seen yet - Shockwave. In addition to that kick ass new banner, we've also added a new banner with Bumblebee and the original Optimus Prime one debuted late last week with the early footage buzz. I'm already sold on seeing this, show me no more. Check out all three of the new Transformers banners below!

Shockwave is an iconcic fan-fave Transformer usually identified by the single robotic eye and laser cannon.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon Banner - Shockwave

Transformers: Dark of the Moon Banner - Bumblebee

Transformers: Dark of the Moon Banner - Optimus Prime

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!

Is Starscream gonna be in it?

Xerxexx on Apr 21, 2011


I think so... Isn't he Megatron's right hand bot? He's always there! I think I remember reading that he was in the 20 mins of footage those other blogs saw.

Yes he is was in the Daytona 500 tv spot!

Maxi Martinez on Apr 21, 2011


sweet, I like his character, he's such a spineless survivalist.

Xerxexx on Apr 21, 2011


he stole the cartoon but they made him useless in the bayfilms. might as well call him Thundercraker

true but he's still awesome.

Xerxexx on Apr 22, 2011


 I swear Bay better not kill him off! Starscream is my idol!

For a second I thought you said Shockwave was in that TV spot and I was thinking what... when?! But yea he's not... Starscream is! Watch here:

Shockwave looks awesome!!!

Hmm... Remember an other movie didn't even need a tagline and flopped advertising the release date in huge characters instead of the movie title? It was called Prince of Persia, then again you can't really compare them this is a sequel.

Davide P. on Apr 21, 2011


Wait wait... That had a tagline! "Defy the Future" - it wasn't used that much though. Oh and that movie just sucked anyway. This one was the potential to be entertaining, at least deliver on the visual side this summer.

Alex Billington on Apr 21, 2011


man i really hope its not a let down :/

Da305kratos on Apr 21, 2011


I like how they mix and match the building/destruction behind the bots.

Tyler_S on Apr 21, 2011


Not bad. He has the one eye. +1, Mr. Bay...

Wait... Shockwave's a cylon?!?

Andy Ortega on Apr 21, 2011


Great! i cant wait!...

TRUE STORY: No matter how shit the reviews will or will not be for this movie. You will all still pony up them bones and watch this movie in 3D/IMAX. You heard it here first!

MichaelBradley1965 on Apr 22, 2011


I can honestly say that I will not be seeing in in IMAX or 3-D or 3-D/IMAX. You heard it here first.

Xerxexx on Apr 22, 2011


Yeah I know I'm not gonna go watch this one since I have not gone to see any bayformers movie, now if they ever make a transformers movie I'd go see that.

Anonymous on Apr 22, 2011


Nope, will not pay a cent to see this. If someone buys my ticket, yeah sure whatever.

Frank on Apr 22, 2011


"Don't worry guys. Shockwave can't shoot for shit."

Kelly J Bond on Apr 22, 2011


If you don't get it. Shame on you.

Kelly J Bond on Apr 22, 2011


Give him a break. He's a guardian, of an entire planet, and he's significantly understaffed.

For Cybertron! on Apr 22, 2011


dude, shockwave was SOOOO COOL in the original series. I wish to the Transformer god that Michael Bay gave him an AWSOME voice like in the cartoon.

RobotProphet on May 28, 2011


It looks like Crysis 2.

Wjl4ever on Apr 22, 2011


Funny I thought the same for the shockwave pic when I first saw it.

Cody W. on Apr 22, 2011


YAY!!!!....who is he?

Jericho on Apr 22, 2011


@Kelly J Bond I got it on the first try and belted out a good laugh... cheers for that one! I hate Bay but I love these damn robots too much NOT to see it. Yes, Mr. Bay already has my money for this one.

Scare S#!tless on Apr 22, 2011


Happy to see my favorite transformer finally made it on-screen. Not super liking the bayformers trademark cybertronian mess of detail, but I'm glad he made it in. Hope to see him do some serious damage before Optimus simply rips his face off with ease in the end, like he did megatron and the fallen in the last one.

PyroDark on Apr 22, 2011


dido on everything you just said

RobotProphet on May 28, 2011


really cant wait man!

Ermmm can we have a trailer now please?

Leeseymours on Apr 22, 2011


I find it funny how Alex is riding his hypocritical high horse of praise(schmoozing) after the test footage and now these banners. ...And if the movie sucks, Alex will be trashing it like the black sheep of the series I sure hope this does NOT become! I, for one, will say that it looks good and I won't blow any smoke until I've actually seen it!

Blue Silver on Apr 22, 2011


What are you talking about? I'm currently going off of all the buzz it has from people who have seen footage and what's in the trailers... but like you, once I see the entire movie I'll form my own opinion then. What's wrong with that, I don't get it?
