THIS.


THIS x2. The acting in this movie was way better than the first 2. You see what happens when you exterminate the one blight? Everything becomes better.


THIS x3
I asked a lot of people at my school why they would not see it and its because of Fox. to me this movie had the perfect balance of humans and TFs. better than the first and ROTF combined.

People at school said "did you know Megan Fox is out, I'm not watching DOTM because of that crap". PPFFT. People at school even said, "the old transformers is gay, new one is better 'cause of it's live-action". BULLCRAP! I can't force them change their minds, but hey, it's personal preference.


Close-minded f***wits.

Megan Fox is indeed Foxy, but once I saw who had replaced her, I didn't miss her. Rosey handled herself very well, I think. I like DOTM better than ROTF, but all three movies were good, to me. It's great to see this movie rule the box office, but it really didn't have any real competition :BOT: .

Transformers: Dark of the Moon continues to break records and drain wallets. Financial analysis site The Motley Fool is reporting that Michael Bay's third live action movie, and the first filmed specifically for IMAX 3D has made a massive impact in that niche.

The Motley Fool wrote:IMAX showings generated $23.1 million in global ticket sales over the holiday weekend, ringing up $14 million domestically through 146 screens and an additional $9.1 million on 105 international locations.


This comes just over a week after the film's record breaking holiday launch and impressive global earnings.

It was bound to happen, but Transformers Dark of the Moon was usurped as king of the box office by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. If nothing else our beloved Transformers were taken down by a worthy adversary, considering the latest and final installment in the Potter franchise earned $168.55 million and smashed several box office records including highest-grossing opening weekend ever.

But enough about the wizard, we've got our own impressive numbers to talk about! Transformers Dark of the Moon raked in another $21.5 million over the weekend, and became the first film of 2011 to cross the $300 million mark. After only 19 days Transformers Dark of the Moon has earned $302.8 million domestically and $460 million in foreign markets for a total of $762.8 million.

Domestic: $302,800,000 39.7%
+ Foreign: $460,000,000 60.3%
= Worldwide: $762,800,000

Wow. It's bound to crack a billion. The studio must be bonkers over the revenue. By the way, wasn't it supposed to be the last Hairy Potter movie a couple of movies back?

No, I'm fairly certain they had always intended on turning all the books into movies, and the Deathly Hallows was the last book, though they did divide it into two films.

They're good films, and I would have probably went to watch this weekend along with everyone else had I not missed a couple of the previous Potter films. I borrowed all of them on blu-ray from my in-laws to watch over the week so I can see it this weekend.

Just as I suspected. There is no justice in the world. I said that if Harry Potter makes anywhere near as close as much money that DOTM made; there's no justice in the world. I was right. We roam the earth like it's ours and never pay for our crimes, not in the least.

The only G1 problem I have is my used G1 Prime's hands being so loose that they fall out of the sockets. Other than that, I'm happy with the cartoons, movies, comics, whatever. It isn't a "versus" thing for me. The movie is going to crack a billion. I'm with all of it.

Paramount Pictures' Transformers: Dark of the Moon Posts IMAX Launch Record in China for a U.S. Movie


July 25, 2011 8:16 PM ET

LOS ANGELES, July 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX) (TSX:IMX), and Paramount Pictures announced today that Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the highly anticipated third film in the blockbuster Transformers franchise, surged to an IMAX opening launch record for a U.S. movie in The People's Republic of China, garnering approximately $3.7 million on 31 screens over the four-day opening, for a per-screen average of $120,000. This represents IMAX's widest release in China to date, and surpasses the previous IMAX opening weekend record of $97,400 per screen for Avatar.

Since its launch on June 29, Transformers: Dark of the Moon has grossed $45.5 million globally in IMAX® theatres, surpassing the $44 million of gross box office generated by Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen:The IMAX Experience.

"We're extremely pleased with such record results for an IMAX DMR film in China," said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. "Chinese audiences are clearly seeking out The IMAX Experience® through U.S. blockbusters and numbers like these illustrate why China presents an exciting – and growing – opportunity for IMAX. By year-end, we anticipate having 85 theatres operating in Greater China, more than double the 40 theatres we had open at the end of 2010."

"These fantastic box office results are a testament to all of our great partners in China," said Greg Foster, IMAX Chairman and President of Filmed Entertainment. "In addition, Michael Bay and Paramount Pictures have delivered a fan favorite and moviegoers around the world continue to come out in force to see this latest installment of the Transformers franchise in IMAX."

What are you talking about? You didn't honestly believe the finale of an eight-movie-long genre defining epic that mostly everyone around the age of 20 have grown up with would ever lose to a Michael Bay action flick? Did you?

I can never tell if you're joking or not...

Begin with the Autobots on Cybertron. They're under heavy fire from the Decepticons. They retreat to the Ark, and blast off from Cybertron. They originally planned to go to another part of the planet, but the Decepticons followed them, and blasted them. The Ark crashes on Earth. The Decepticons follow to make sure that the Autobots are dead, and are hit by an asteroid in the process. They crash as well.

When the Decepticons land on earth, a little kid (10 or 11)named Daniel Witwicky goes to see what happened. He discovers the Decepticon ship. As he is exploring, Starscream sneaks up behind him, and attempts to kill him. Before he can, Bumblebee tackles Starscream. He beats starscream down enough to be able to get out of the Nemesis with Daniel. Daniel then meets the Autobots.

Either something like that, or they should make a straight remake of the best episodes of G1.


They may not reboot just carry on with Megatron`s remains or dust drifting off into the air then space and becoming Galvatron he then he creates the sweeps. Soundblaster and maybe the Stunticons and Combaticons
