Hm, That's a rather interesting name. Hopefully it will have some plot significance. (that better not involve Unicron.) :???:

Agree. Dosn't Unicron cast a shadow over the planets and moons he's about to eat in the animated movie? Probably in the marvel comics too, but I don't have them on hand to check. If so, then the title makes sense. It probably has multiple meanings, just like Revenge of the Fallen did.

Now as for Unicron *being* the moon, that's just silly and I hope that's not actually what they've done. :(

The Dark Of The Moon? Really? Geez.

Why not something equally dumb sounding, but makes a tad more sense? Such as The Dark Moon or something like that?

Crap in a hat that sucks.

I concur! I can't stand 'of the' titles and I knew TF3 would be yet another, but I actually like this one! :D

I've been compiling a scale list (largest to smallest) of the Film Transformers based on; vehicle/alternate modes (with the best dimension data possible), as many official charts I could find & most crucially, the figures I actually own & desire! If anyone would like a bit of assistance in scale or would simply like a peek at the list, do say so! ^^

(Also been working on something big; I'm a writer, so that's a clue... ;))

Sorry to burst your bubble here, it's wrong, sadly. In the first movie, Optimus says that with the Allspark away from Cybertron, Cybertron, like in the future of War for Cybertron's plot, was cold, barren, and uninhabitable. So, sorry to be the the smart-ass (sorry if that offends anyone), but your theory is wrong. Good thinking though, as if Optimus never said those words, I might have gone along with that theory. For the moment, I'm sticking with the "Our-Moon-is-actually-Unicron-in-disguise-like-it-was-in-Armada" theory. :lol:

I think it would be a great idea to have Unicron be the moon! And at the end of the movie all the people have to move to that newly discovered planet by using the Autobot's technology.

It's the Dark of the Moon because that's where the Nemesis is, and Megatron's army.

And no, it's not a Twilight Crossover.

I love all the haters... it's freaking hilarious. I'm not even into the Movie Mythology but half you guys got nothing on it.

Straight up, I don't like you. You've got an attitude problem and your so called rumors are common knowledge to everyone here on this site. But seriously dude.. use better adjectives than 'gay'. It's disrespectful, and distasteful.

Bad title. One can only assume that because Pink Floyd used a very common phrase as an album title about thirty years ago, for some ungodly reason a usual phrase has been reduced to The Dark of the Moon, which - to me - sounds ignorant. Like one of those folks that loves to talk in cliches, but never gets them right.

Hell, Transformers; The dark of the moon...subtext; Transformers ***hole?

Seriously though, it's a bad title.

That's a comment better suited to PMs or not said at all. Do you forget that you're a moderator? Do you forget that it doesn't give you Carte Blanche to make a comment such as that? Even if you feel that way, you really don't have a right to say it publicly. At the very least, it should've been done via PMs. And even then, it's bordering on trollish behavior or a personal attack.

I agree, his wording was...grating, but you're supposed to either rise above it (as many mods and admins do) or make your statements privately, to him and him alone. Perhaps a complaint to your fellow mods and admins, but that's about it.

Indeed, you are correct.

Though, to be fair, it wasn't exactly clear in the film. You could tell that Megatron was headed toward Saturn, due to the rings, but it wasn't clear if it was the planet or one of it's moons.

I think the comics stated which moon, correct?

Dude. Do you realize how TINY our moon is? It's a freakin spec of dust in the cosmos! Unicrackers should be gigantic enough to consume worlds at the very least, not some little winged gremlin that could only eat Rhode Island & wash it down with a lake before he's stuffed!

Yeah, they were pushing things in ROTF by grouping all the pyramids together in one spot, and that weird stuff with the Smithsonian museum/Washington DC situated in the desert, but Unicrombie in the moon is taking things too far!

I'm hoping they stay away from Unicron. No need! No thanks!

I think based on the filming and lack of rumors up until this point, we can safely assume Unicron is NOT in this movie. It seems like if Unicron was in this movie, that they would've needed to do a scene with a lot of people running at some point. I don't recall any scene where this happened, or anything that would make me think something on a larger scale than normal Transformers is battling on Earth.

So many haters on the name and we really have no idea about the plot other than it wil some how involve the space race. If this is true, then the title seems apropriate.

Anyhow, its just a title. In the big sceme of things its not that big a deal. people will watch the movie regardless if its called "Transformers- Picnic in the Park".

It does make sense that there would be something on the other side of the moon, and how easy Frenzy and Blackout hacked into top secret files and may have fund out about mining on the moon for Helium3 makes a cgreat energon source. Its also much closer to strike at Sam and the Allspark... ;)
