Is this the first teaser poster for Transformers 3?

Dec. 7, 2010by:

I'm almost immediately skeptical of any poster sent in by a scooper, especially when it's for a film that's highly anticipated among the fanboy crowd (they're fond of Photoshopping stuff - who new?). But there are a couple of reasons why I think this TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON poster is the real deal.

First, it skips all the obvious hallmarks of fake posters. Most fake posters try to convince us they're real by overdoing it with poster-y kinda stuff like logos and fancy titling. What we have here is simple and not trying to convince anyone of anything. Also, most teaser posters try to disguise their poor Photoshop work in shadows but here we get a rather up close and personal look at Optimus Prime with a very Michael Bay-ish sun glare between his legs. Finally, the marketing campaign kicks off next week with the debut of the teaser trailer (with TRON: LEGACY) so the timing makes sense.

I've contacted Paramount to check on the authenticity of this poster so stay tuned as we learn more. For now, take a look and let me know what you think.

UPDATE - As vtxjosh points out in the comments below, this poster was seen in-person at the 2010 Licensing International Expo and this is an official version of that banner. Whether it will be something that hangs in your theater lobby remains to be seen. But it IS legit.

Don't Hate

It's a teaser for a reason. It makes you get excited not want to jump its bones.

I don't like the idea of saying TF3. It implies the movie's title is Trans Formers 3... There isn't a space inbetween.

LOL, haters hating on the most generic poster style there can be. The movie must MUST suck because of this poster.
Man, internet movie geek opinions are quickly becoming utterly redundant.

I'm indifferent to TF but at least this will complete the trilogy so Bay can move onto other, better things.

BTW, the poster is pretty lame and probably just a rush job that they needed to get done.

Words cannot describe how how awesome this is!! I love the first two Transformers, and I like all the Michael Bay movies! Never understand the hate for the man, but I guess haters will be haters.

According to AICN the trailer comes out tomorrow, so it seems feasible this could be the teaser poster.

at least it looks homemade. might be something slapped together in a rush for the expo vtxjosh linked to, but that might have been before they filmed and had any pictures so they just used old material.

Nice try.

No fucking way is that thing real. Wake-up, people. You think a 3D Tranformers extravaganza would use such a blah image to generate interest. You are retarded.

That poster is real, it's been out for months. It dates way back before the official title, that is why it is not on the poster [link] TFW2005.com posted it back in June.

i'd say this is probably a slapped together fan poster. it looks decent, if not boring, but the pyramid under Optimus is kind of a give away for the second movie.

Of course i could be wrong and this could be legit and we'll have to suffer for 2 more hours of Bay convincing us that Decepticons built the pyramids.
