Update: Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Director Michael Bay has confirmed that the poster is not legitimate. "Total fake poster," he posts on his official Shoot For the Edit
website. "The story logline is also a misdirect."
Thanks to Bru No, we have what appears to be a poster for the third and final installment of the giant robot series for Director Michael Bay and company, Transformers: The Dark of the Moon
The poster shows off the iconic head of Shockwave peeking over the moon, which has the Decepticon symbol visible on the surface.
The bottom of the poster reads, "Be Afraid of the Dark," with the release date of the film July 1, 2011 underneath the tagline.
While we cannot independently verify the authenticity of this poster, this poster is very similar to the teaser poster
for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
, which depicted just The Fallen with the tagline, "Revenge is Coming."
The text for the tagline and date is also very similar in both posters.
The poster was sighted on an easel and what looks like a conference room within a hotel building.
This is the second teaser poster we have seen for the film, the first
being a full-body shot of Optimus Prime with just "TF3" written on the bottom of the poster.
However, the argument can be made that the Prime poster was just for placeholder purposes and is not the actual teaser poster for the film. The same poster was sighted as the cover page of Director Michael Bay's binder while he was shooting in Chicago, IL.
