This makes no sense what so ever! It's an anime convention, not a film festival or a TF gathering of some sort! Yes, I know there fans of TF that go to those things (myself included), but this just cuts more ticket sales and cheapens the Botcon screening (even though it's still earlier) even more. Plus Botcon is a TRANSFORMERS convention, not a cover-all Sci-Fi or Anime convention, so it made sense and was special because of that. What's next, a screening of the TF movie at a My Little Pony Convention or a gun show?

The latest transformer series (armada, energon etc) are all pretty much anime. So in a way it makes sense.

Yes, but the movie isn't animated. Plus, it seems to feature more concepts and characters from the G1 series, which really isn't anime. Again, don't get me wrong, I do like anime.

All that aside, I just don't like the prescreening being done at another convention (in the US) besides Botcon. With the number of prescreenings going on, the Botcon one (which was one of the first announced) keeps seeming less "exclusive." Yes, it's before this one takes place, but it just seems cheapened to me.

If the July 2nd Opening is only for select locations, alot less people should feel upset about the integrity of opening day being the 4th.

Isn't it that there are July 2nd showing's at 8PM? I don't see why an anime convention should get shafted from the fun.

Alot of people go to AX. Heck, thousands, with AX presumebly the biggest anime convention in the US. And people do go there. It makes sense to show the movie there because for example, you don't want half the people attending AX and half attending the movie showing, it would hurt both theaters and AX to not have a TF showing in AX.

Think about it this way, both AX and TF marketing win, rather than marketing get bloated and AX lose.

Good move by marketing (or whoever orchestrated this) :-P

Nah, I actually knew about the July 2 release date. I just didn't put 2 and 2 together (or really pay close attention to what date this screening was :P ). Oh well, teaches me to read and respond to a story at 1 AM! :oops:

Speaking of AX, I wonder how do they plan to accommodate all the attendants. Hope it isn't like a drive-thru theater :lol:
