    I have heard a lot of people ( particularly on the Transformers Live Action Movie Blog, a blog where 99% of commenters act like rowdy children.) proclaiming that the movie will be a complete box office flop that can't be saved, simply because Megan Fox has been scrapped in favour of 'Rosie TopModel' as they call her. This of course is Bollocks, as I imagine there are more people in the world who want to see giant robots turning into sports cars as oppose to some lady with a nice ass.

    The loss of Megan Fox wont really matter becaue she couldn't carry Jennifer's Body

    Probably will outgross the first and the second TOGETHER, the movie is in 3D, after all..

    I think that on the worst possibility, it will match the second movie.

    I know. It's like they can't get over it. Anyways, I think it will be a success. How much of a success, time will tell. I think the superbowl spot did a good job of pumping the crowd up. The anticipation is certainly high.

    Ya' know, a lot of people try to place a lot of the first two movie's financial success on Bay, or on Labeouf, Fox, etc. The truth is, people see these movies because it's Transformers. It's a brand name that they recognize from their childhood.

    Financially it'll probably due quite well. It'll at least be on-par with the first two. Though that'll be due to the action scenes, and it being released in 3D (faaaaad). The "story" (or lack of) itself will most likely be on-par with RotF, if not worse. Personally not what I would call a "success", but to each their own...

    For reception from the critics I think it will probably be on par with the first one or at the least I'd say better than ROTF. BUT...I don't care too much about what the critics have to say anyway. It only bothers me that the movies that I like a lot are blasted by the critics so much and then used as a comparison for bad movies (EX - "....it wasn't as bad as the piece of crap that Transformers was" etc.)

    Financially I think it will outperform ROTF, but that will probably be mainly because of 3D ticket prices. Overall attendance might suffer due to fallout from ROTF and the very competitive summer movie schedule.

    i think its gonna be great! action wise.... but something tells me theyre gonna bash it because MOST of the movie is basically focused on chicago, when its titled "dark of the moon". cuz in the teasers theyre saying "earth goes dark". i hope we get an epic moon battle, not just some dumb mission to go up to get sentinel and bring him back down to kick some ass.plus the Cons have to invade chicago FOR A REASON...and i dont think theyre invading the whole planet this time.

    Guaranteed it will not flop even if it doesn't make as much as rotf, it will actually make more because of the 3D

    Lol. The brand name is a big part of it, and so is Bay. All of Bay's movies, save The Island have been blockbuster successes.


    Together they equal blockbuster. Add in 3d and I think the money will at least match ROTF.

    I think it'll make a little less than the second one. The first one was very popular and that made people want to come and see the second one. ROTF wasn't as popular with audiences as the first one was though, so I think less people will watch the third. I say it makes about 500,000,000 worldwide. I think ROTF made 700,000,000 worldwide.

    It's gonna be huge, but the final Harry Potter is gonna bite into it (and everything else, for that matter).

    The second one was actually pretty popular with audiences, it was only hated by critics.

    And I doubt that it will gross less than ROTF, it's on 3-D for God's sake! It's a movie with big giant robots and it's in 3D, of course it will outgross ROTF!

    Most everybody I spoke to thought it was unwatchable, and none of them are professional critics. Not all critics are snobbish, art-house types who look down on popcorn movies. Most are just like you and me, except they watch a lot more movies than us.

    Keep in mind, most critics lower their standards depending on the genre. They aren't going to grade The King's Speech with the same eye as they would, say, Zombieland. They know when they're watching an artsy-fartsy flick, and they know when they're watching a popcorn flick.

    Let's not forget the most notable critic who gave ROTF a harsh review: Michael Bay. That guy has been apologizing up and down for ROTF. He too realized the movie was unwatchable, and has basically said that DOTM will be his apology for everyone who hated ROTF.

    I'm expecting it to get better reviews than ROTF, but not as good as TFTM 07. And I am not sure about the gross - I'd automatically say less than ROTF and about the same as TFTM 07, but the 3D and IMAX tickets will inflate sales, while the large number of other movies being shown in the same formats may hold that down. So moneywise I'll randomly guess it'll make more than TFTM 07 but less than ROTF.
