    Movie buffs have NEVER seen cgi actors perform like the Transformers will...this IS cinemainc history! Rejoice!

    This is the first movie in history that I can recall that you root for the cgi guys......PIXAR does not count! Any fan should see this AT LEAST 3 times!

    If spiderboy can go at least 3 movies...we can do 9?

    I won't have time to see the movie three times, but I might buy extra tickets just to inflate the numbers. Let's beat Spidey!

    Planning to go to the June 27th showing. Then I'll see it in IMAX on the 4th. Not sure about after that.

    Yeah, cause Star Wars was all live actors.

    I believe he's talking about the main characters, of which in Star Wars were real people. There really haven't been any full CG main heros that I can think of in any major motion picture, just a lot of actors who have all their action scenes done in CG.

    umm, Yoda, the Gungans, Clone Troopers....It's gonna be cool and all, but I challenge the claim that these are the first CGI heroes on film. Either way, I'm gonna see it at least three times opening day.

    I never once rooted for Gungans or Clone Troopers, and the the Yoda battle scene in Episode II was only that way because it was the best scene in one of the worst movies ever made.

    Anyway, back on topic...I'm excited.

    Not that UK box office will matter when it comes to 'opening weekend', but I'm going twice!

    Was going to say King Kong but he wasn't exactly the hero.

    I disagree.

    Gollum. Pivotal character. Plenty of screen time. Had to look 'organically real' too next to living breathing performers. Had to really, REALLY 'act' as well.

    THAT was movie history!
