    We get... a kickass movie! (In 6-1/2 months.)



    And a cookie.

    But just one, and we all have to share it.



    Anyway, I'm curious to know what the download tally is. (I know I'm responsible for at least 1,273 of them. :)  Wish there was a link to save it.)

    No. Not at all. Maybe on the theater screen that would have been worth it all by itself. (Why oh why couldn't it have been attached to Rocky Balboa?) But on a computer screen?

    Nope. Need more. I'm greedy. :)

    could the fan trailer mentioned have something to do with d. murphys post about tomorrows new trailer.

    If so, we are getting to different accounts as Don is saying it was changed due to the fans and for the fans, and the other says it is not an official change but just somethind done BY a fan.

    This just shows that the general movie going public HATE this film and want to puke all over it.

    But seriously folks, I am a bit suspicious about this "statistic." If it's true then that's hella tight.

    Maybe it will be later, but I just saw Rocky Balboa a couple hours ago and the only decent trailer was for Ghost Rider. Don't even remember the others.

    If the trailer turns up with a NEW recording of Cullen and is the only version hosted on the official site, it WILL be the official trailer.

    Nelson would then either misinformed or simply attempting to spin the change so it doesn't look like the fans had any influence.

    It doesn't show anything, either way. Other than the fact Transformers is a strong property that enough people remember to go and download a trailer to watch.

    But there's not much in the way of visable Transformers in it, and there's no way of knowing if the average reaction to what will be most people's first exposure to the film is good or bad.

    All it demostrates is that the general audience does seem to remember Transformers more than some people seem to think…

    I bet it broke the record on Yahoo or for the studio... but top overall? I kinda doubt it.
