With the recent release of the DOTM trailer, I've been thinking a lot about the title and what it could mean. To sum it up quickly, I do not think the title is referring to this bit we are seeing about the alien ship crashed on the moon. My reasoning is as follows: First of all, the "dark side of the moon" is the side that is always facing away from Earth. The moon doesn't rotate; you and I have never seen this side of the moon, unless it was a picture taken behind the moon from orbit. The Apollo 11 mission landed in the Sea of Tranquility, which is on the near side of the moon. Even if they had landed on the far side, they wouldn't be able to communicate with ground control because, well, the moon would block transmissions. And I'm sure we're not expected to accept that Buzz and Neil hopped halfway around the moon in 21 minutes. Plus, you can clearly see Earth in the shot of the crashed ship. Thus, I think we can confirm that the crashed ship is not located on the far side of the moon. Now, the phrase "dark side of the moon" can have another definition. It can also refer to the part of the moon cast in shadow by the earth. This "side" of the moon is constantly shifting, giving us our moon phases. I can't think of any significance this definition could hold for DOTM. If you can, please tell. Now, since the alien ship is not located on the far side of the moon, I can only conclude that: A.) There is something else on the dark side of the moon B.) The subtitle has another meaning that won't "click" until partway through the film, as it was with Revenge of the Fallen. There's something "dark" belonging to/caused by the "moon". First thing that comes to my mind is dark energon/Unicron, though it's unlikely the new film would play so closely to Prime. So, since it's not the secret of this ship [unless it's a cross between metaphorical (dark) and literal (moon)], what do you guys think?
