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.

Perhaps emboldened by the amazing success of Marvel's take on a shared continuity for its increasingly numerous movies and now TV projects, Hasbro has made known their plans to try this approach with the Transformers movie series. But what can we expect from this direction, and how might it affect Transformers 5? Keep reading for some thoughts.
In what may be remembered as the least surprising news of 2015, it sounds like Michael Bay will be returning again for the next installment in the Transformers film series. At CinemaCon, Vice Chairman of Paramount Rob Moore was said to have "promised" theatre owners attending the event that Bay was already in the process of developing the next Transformers movie. It was previously reported that Bay had opted to take on a different project which would keep him from directing a fifth Transformers movie. Keep reading for more!
Entertainment Weekly confirms that Hasbro has hired writer Akiva Goldsman to head up the writing team that will work on expanding the Transformers movie world into a broader cinematic franchise. CEO Brian Goldner revealed this in Hasbro's quarterly earnings conference call yesterday, and added that Transformers 5 is expected in 2017. A director is not mentioned, and while Michael Bay was named in connection with the project in rumors it's entirely logical that the financially successful director would be consulted on what "his" franchise would do next.

The TransformersAsia Facebook page has posted a wealth of images of the new Ultimate Optimus Prime, showing off what almost has to be the definitive version of Optimus as he appeared in Transformers (2007), Revenge Of The Fallen, and Dark Of the Moon.
