The new trailer for TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON has been unleashed and now we have the poster debut courtesy of Yahoo! Movies. The poster itself features Optimus Prime, Shia LeBeouf and Megan Fox’s eye candy replacement. The new Michael Bay directed sequel will hit theaters on July 1, 2011 in time for the 4th of July fireworks.
Honestly, the posters for all the TRANSFORMERS have been relatively underwhelming and DARK OF THE MOON’s first poster fits right in with the others. The films visual effects have all been incredibly impressive and I’ve yet to see them really capture that sense of wow on a single one sheet. I haven’t watched the newest trailer yet, but even from the Super Bowl ad I felt there were tons of impressive and ominous scenes to pull from to create a memorable poster rather than a single shot of Optimus Prime with Shia LeBeouf and the new Megan Fox supporting shocked looks at his feet. I still believe the film will be entertaining, but let down once again with the first poster. What do you guys think?
