Age of Extinction
Is This the Transformers Dark of the Moon Teaser Poster?

By bwbm on Wednesday, October 27, 2010



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."

Original Post:
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.

Really I think it's the roundness of it that's throwing me off.

The head design of the original Generation 1 Shockwave toy and animation model features a number of iconic elements that have been transferred to subsequent incarnations and re-imaginings of the character. In no particular order, these are: 1. A cycloptic eye, generally rendered in a purple-compli... read more

Probably like they work in the purple touches in Barricade or other touches like nearly the entire first run of Beast Wars toys.. Its quite easy to have a car/truck of one colour and add in a blooming rainbow of a body. I dont know why but I have the weird feeling this was a Media Studies students ... read more

All I can say is they better fix that other Decepticon's head too so he looks as much like Starscream as this one looks like Shockwave So unfair...So so SO unfair...

I like Shocky's head design a lot. But although the purple is all geewunny and stuff, its a bit hard to swallow. Im guessing that Mad Max style rig is him, so how are they gonna work in a purple head?

I suppose I should have caveated the post in that the third and final installment for this team. They could attempt to reboot or carry on with a new team/actors, but it's definitely been stated that these actors and crew would want to move on.

More Age of Extinction News
Olivus Prime of the TFW2005 Forums was able to sit down with Mark Ryan recently and talk Transformers movies. Ryan is the voice behind Revenge of the Fallen's Jetfire and Age of Extinction's Lockdown, and spoke of his inspiration for Jetfire, the amount of his own acting that was put into Lockdown... and perhaps most interestingly, a hint at the direction of Transformers 5 and the Transformers Cinematic Universe at large. Read on to see what he had to say!
Get your views in on the Transformers movies listed on Netflix as they will be removed from the listing at the end of September. Transformers: Age of Extinction and a number of other films such as the Hunger Games, World War Z that are part of the Epix distribution deal, have not been renewed at this time. We've been here before, where the deal was done only to be re-done at the zero-hour. Read on to see the quote from Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix.
Empire Online has posted a ranking of the 100 greatest characters to feature in a movie, as selected by their readership. And Optimus Prime managed to make the list! Just barely avoiding falling in to dead last place, Optimus Prime ranks 98 out of 100. We're not entirely sure on what criteria people made their choices, but the bullet points on Empire's list might have you believe it's due to Optimus riding a dinosaur. We can but wonder if he wouldn't have ranked higher had he not murdered Frasier a short time later. Click through to get a link to the full list.
Following the long slow run up to Transformers 5 and the Cinematic Universe. We have some new insights from Daredevil writer Steven Dekinght. He's been part of the writers room sessions and gives us his take how things are unfolding. Paramount are "pulling all the stops" including a visit from Steven Spielberg himself. While no word on what the new Transformers 5 movie being worked on now by Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner, we do get a sense the new blood may actually produce a movie a story in it. Read on for more.
If you like busts and statues, then you're in business! Prime 1 Studios had pieces on display from Age of Extinction at Wonderfest this weekend. Busts of Optimus Prime and Galvatron, replicating the heads and upper bodies of the characters in painstaking detail, plus a full statue of Lockdown with one of his "hunting dogs". It's probably the best merchandise representation of Lockdown that will ever exist, and the price tag is sure to reflect that! Click through to check them out.
