Speaking of Optimus and his gun, I wonder if he will use his weapons more in the sequel, seeing as he thought it best to not use them much in the first movie and instead get the beat down from Megatron. If that happens again, my vote goes to Ironhide to lead the group from now on…
In other news, a brand new poster for Transformers 2 was just released thanks to Empire and it’s not that impressive. It again only shows the two robots and the two actors they seem to overly display everywhere. I wished they’d show off a bunch of the other robots or at least some of the new characters – Anything different would be good, really.
Is it just me or does this look incredibly fake, almost unprofessional photoshopped? It just doesn’t fit right and it’s not of the same quality we’ve seen from the previous official posters.
The sound effects, music and visuals that are presented are insanely cool for this movie from everything seen so far and I’m psyched to see it opening weekend – I know I’m not the only one either as according to Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood, sources from rival studios are expecting a possible $175M grab for its 5-day opening. That period includes opening day, Wednesday, June 24 to the end of the weekend, Sunday, June 28. The comparison is to Spider-Man 2 which earned $152 in its 5-day Wednesday to Sunday opening back in 2004 around the same time in June.
What do you think of the spots and are you excited to see this?
