New “Transformers” poster as tickets go on sale
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Paramount Pictures says tickets now are on sale for the anticipated “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” even though the Michael Bay-directed sequel doesn’t open until June 29. Get them while they are lukewarm but sure to heat up. Eventually.
I’m kidding. There’s no doubt Bay’s blockbuster is going to be huge, even if it only delivers half of what its two robot-crunching predecessors brought to the bank. The film stars Shia LaBeouf as Sam, the courageous hero who helps the Autobots defeat the Decepticons in a battle that, based on previews, decimates our planet.
In celebration of the pre-ticket sale, Paramount also released a cool new Optimus Prime poster, which we’re pasting below.
“Transformers: Dark of the Moon” concludes Bay’s robot trilogy. It opens everywhere June 29, and should dominate the July 4 box office weekend.
