Optimus Prime looks badass in these fake new Transformers posters

05.09.2011

From the looks of things, Optimus Prime has two new weapons in TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON and he's not afraid to use them. Two new banners for the film have hit the web and show off both his massive arm cannon as well as a golden blade you may have glimpsed in the trailers slicing and dicing through bad dudes.

I'm still extremely skeptical about TRANSFORMERS 3 but I've liked the look of everything we've seen so far. And that includes Optimus Prime sharing a dramatic moment with Frances McDormand. But I liked a good deal of what I saw on REVENGE OF THE FALLEN and that was a disaster. If DARK OF THE MOON fails, especially after all the, "We know PART 2 sucked so we're making it up to you with this one..." talk, it might be time to write off Michael Bay as a filmmaker. Take a look at the posters below and see what you think.

[UPDATE: As mentioned below in the comments, the first poster shown below is fake. A pretty good fake but the tipoff is that The Fallen, who is most certainly not returning for DARK OF THE MOON, is hiding in the background. The second poster does appear to be a real, international Imax poster for the film.]

[2ND UPDATE: Was a little skeptical about the second poster, did some digging and found out that it, too, is a fan creation.]

After those laughably awful Xmen First Class posters, I don't know what to believe anymore.

Past Time

"it might be time to write off Michael Bay as a filmmaker"

It's far past time. In fact, he never should have been written on as a director. He's never made a single good film. Everything he touches turns to shit. These posters looks retarded, but that's not the artist's fault. It's the fault that the source material is retarded and Van Gogh himself couldn't make it look good. Transformers sucked and Transformers 2 sucked harder. This will be no different. The fact that anyone eve gives any

In 20 years, this entire franchise will be regarded as one of the biggest embarrassments of the entire art/industry.

I have high hopes that this will be good and very entertaining.

It will be a fitting way to end the trilogy.

*sigh*

Anybody who uses Photoshop... and anybody with common sense can see that those were fakes. The fact that these were posted with such confidence is the reason I've started looking elsewhere for news. I miss the JoBlo 5 years ago.

Unfortunately, real movie posters these days are so shitty, I don't blame him for mistaking an amateur effort for the real thing.

FOREST BATTLE

Even though ROTF is a terrific mess, the Forest Battle is one of the greatest effects sequences ever put on film. You know this is true.

Hey say what you must about Transformers, but I simply cannot wait any longer for this flick. It looks fantastic. The second one didn't really suck. It was more like awesome garbage. Shitty storyline with phenomenal visuals. This one looks like all kinds of awesome. I can't help it. Bay knows how to garner an audience, and I'm a sucker for these films. Both the posters above look fake, though. Nice, but fake...maybe images from a toy line.

these look like they are fan made, especially the first one. You can clearly see the fallen in the background, and I'm sure hes not coming back for this installment.
