    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Seeing Ticket Sales Surge at Fandango

    LOS ANGELES, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- With less than two weeks to go before its June 24 release date, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is already seeing brisk ticket sales on Fandango, the nation's leading moviegoer destination. Currently, the film represents 21% of ticket sales on Fandango (as of June 11 at 9 am PT).

    According to an ongoing Fandango survey of moviegoers planning to see Transformers 2:

    * 81% of respondents say Megan Fox is the one star they're most excited to see in the new movie.
    * 76% say they are fans of director Michael Bay.
    * 72% say the IMAX presentation of Transformers 2 will be an important part of their moviegoing experience.
    * 71% of respondents are 18-34 years old; 68% are male.

    "Fans are already scooping up tickets for Transformers 2's opening week showtimes, especially for the IMAX screens," says Ted Hong, Chief Marketing Officer for Fandango. "The movie is garnering some great Internet buzz, and filmgoers are clearly ready for another action-packed summer popcorn movie. With Transformers 2, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Ice Age 3, Public Enemies, Bruno, G.I. Joe and other highly-anticipated movies opening within a few weeks of each other, it looks like a banner year for the movies."

    I got my two tickets for the Madison area IMAX theater last weekend for the 27th. I plan to take my sister with me to catch the flick. This will be our first IMAX experience and a fitting movie to see it.

    This is ridiculous. I still can't buy advance tickets for my market, not even at the theater, let alone on Fandango. If the local area waits until opening day to allow ticket sales, it's gonna be a slaughterhouse in the theaters. People are gonna be completely insane.

    Those statistics are depressing. There are plenty of attractive women in this world, and we don't need one that can't act to save her life.

    But hell, I can excuse that to hormones, but admitting to being a fan of Bay? Who the hell would even consider being a fan of his work? Geez.

    And here I thought Transformers didn't need Bay, Bay needed Transformers after his dismal ticket sales for The Island. That's certainly depressing; I guess Bay isn't going anywhere.

    Not hating on the movies, by the way, I liked plenty about them. I just don't like Bay's directing style, it does nothing for me.
