    Think about it: dotm comes out July 1. Harry potter comes out July 12. Captain America comes out a day before HP. It'll be a competition at the box office, so should bay push the date forward a little or back after HP, so as to avoid a clash with what will probably two of the best summer films? I think so.

    Nope, because it's done well against Potter before. It also shows a lack of confidence in your movie, this giving a signal to the world that it's not good enough to hold its own against the other two.

    It'll be fine. If anything, Captain America might want to move as it's going up against two high earning established franchises.

    I think the date is fine, there seems to be no rush in the production. Bay seems to be so determined to write the wrongs of ROTF, has the sequel hurt micheal bay personaly I am so excited for the third film.

    That's plenty of time for it to make a nice profit before HP comes out.

    You don't want a movie to be rushed, it likely won't be that good if it is.

    Considering that in 3 days rotf made 160 million I think dotm will be just fine where it is.

    FYI - Captain America comes out July 22. TF3 has almost 2 weeks before HP to dominate the box office. I think it will be just fine (even in this insanely crowded summer movie season)

    TF3 also has the benefit of the holiday weekend.

    Is this really the second topic about this in a week?

    Transformers does not have to worry about competition. It'll do fine.

    Transformers 3 has a good release date. If anything, the other movies that premiere before it may have to worry bc they come out a week after one another.

    Personally, who gives two shits about the rest of the films this summer. One shall stand, and that's DOTM.

    There is no reason to, DOTM has nothing to fear. It will do fine, not to be a jerk but these type of threads are so pointless...

    HP isn't going to affect this film, because they're different types of films and the fans of each will go to see them no matter when they come out.

    Captain America on the other hand could lose out to an established franchise like Transformers. DOTM won't be affected by Captain America, that's for sure.

    Why? People will see what they want to see. I'll be seeing DOTM several times, and HP7-2 none.

    I think this will be the case if anything happens. DOTM will still beat HP.
