    Personally I'm surprised it's #1.. I figured it'd be anticipated, but #1 still surprises me. I figured it'd just be in the Top 5

    But hey I guess the trailers and TV spots have impressed more then just the fandom :) 

    And this is the summer of three-quels, and when's the last time a Live Action Transformers movie has been seen on screen. So far Transformers is the most original movie at the moment this summer

    I think seeing a "2" or "3" after a movie title automatically suggests some repetition (even if only subconciously) to a lot of people. They may have been looking forward to the latest instalmens of SPIDER-MAN or POTC, but at the end of the day the look and feel of these movies will not be 'new' to them.

    TRANSFORMERS on the other hand is brand-spanking new, with an exciting and glossy trailer to back up the originality of the premise to boot. I'm glad it's hit the number one spot - I don't see how this movie can fail to be a 'hit' now; it's just a question of "how big"?

    its something that's never been done before (done WELL anyways)

    giant robots diriving, flying and running around blowing the crap out of everything, and it all looks completely real

    my brother and his friend went and saw pirates 3 last night, and the transformers trailer was playing, both of them are very anxious to see this movie, and they dont like anything about transformers.

    I have no doubt this is gonna be one of, if not, the biggest movie of the year.

    fuck spiderman! fuck harry potter, fuck pirates! Transformers FTW!!!

    Honestly. Transformers is the only summer movie I'm really looking foward to, after the disappointment that was Spider-Man 3 I'm kinda meh on the situation.

    Bratz #15? WTF? Seriously? They made a movie about those F'N things? Ridiculous. And it's beating 28 Weeks Later. :lol 

    Good to see interest is big in the film. Hope it lives up to the hype. Looking good to me so far.

    I like it when something I like is doing well.

    Fuck the rest, Transformers is the best!

    That's good news, no, huge news! This could make Transformers as well known as Starwars, only actually cool!

    i remember last year when superman returns was rated the number one anticipated movie of the summer, look how that turned out, and what big movies came out last year, POTC 2? barly any competion, but either way i think transformers is going to get it's money back no matter what, unless the movie just sucks and has a bad word of mouth, we'll see

    lol i'm sorry, but i think transformers will do alot better than superman, atleast with this movie we're going to have robots punching other robots and not just throwing giant rocks into outspace lol either way, i think this movie will make alot of money

    Agreed.

    After seeing Spiderman, I roughly knew what to expect out of the core cast in the 2nd and 3rd installment. Just as with POTC one would know what to expect out of the core cast for the 2nd and 3rd installment. And the same with Shrek

    But Transformers is an unknown, other then the few clips seen in TV spots and judging from Yahoo's ranking the looking of the trailers. No one knows what to expect with Transformers' core cast other then seeing robots bashing and getting bashed around. So there's the curiosity factor that might work in it's favour as the new kid on the block

    exactly right, i showed a mate of mine the lastest trailer today, he hasnt seen any of them, when i was watching it with him the hairs on my neck stood on end. ive seen it 20 times but when i realised what he was seeing it was mind blowing. this is going to be mental even if the story line was a little shallow (ihavent read it so i dont know, its just a comment) when people see the trailer they wont be able to not see it. my wife cant stand the cartoons but even when she saw it she said she would go!

    Everyone I've so shown the trailer to (who are not necessarily TF fans) have to totally been blown away and were surprized at what a good movie it looks like.
