    I went to see Green Lantern the other night at the United Artists theater in my neighborhood. Instead of the giant cardboard cutout of Optimus Prime that most theaters have, this one painted the glass doors with the Transformers logo, faction symbols, and artwork of Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron, and Starscream.

    The character art was copied from the older movie posters or DVD covers. The split faction symbol reminds me of Armada Sideways.

    Has anyone else seen this type of stuff promoting the Transformers films at their local theater?

    At the theater in the nearby mall, there are giant cardboard posters for the new and upcoming movies. The ones in 3D are layered and have characters and objects sticking out (think of a pop-up book). The one for DOTM is by far the most elaborate. Prime has all these layers and sticks out about 5 feet from the background. It's really crazy awesome.

    My theater is promoting it by deleaying the release until July 1st... which is Canada day so at least I'll have a day off. Other than a few posters and a cardboard mockup I havn't seen anything out of the ordinary.

    I went to the regal 18 in north brunswick new jersey on sunday, brought my 3 year old to see cars 2, there was not one DOTM sign or promo up, most of the stuff that was up was harry potter crap, pictures of all those ugly british characters, it really pissed me off, made me think that the regal manager was a michael bay hater, seriously, how could they not have one picture up for transformers? I should make a complaint

    They aren't. The IMAX picked "Cars 2" instead.

    My theater did a hilariously bad temporary painting of the autobot symbol on their doors that looked like frodo for ROTF, but I'm going to bring my Nintendo 3DS to the theater tonight to take pics if they have anything else for DOTM.
