    The running time for DOTM has been confirmed as 1 hour and 49 minutes.

    The battle in Chicago has also been confirmed as lasting 1 hour.

    Is there really only going to be 49 minutes of building the story, telling jokes, Sam getting a new job, introducing all the new characters and technology and flying to the Moon and back?

    nelson confirmed the film too be over 2 hrs.... this was reported last week!
    just because the a website states the film for a 1 hr 49 min run tim dosent mean anything really.

    The film will mostlikely be close to length of the other films an i believe all ran for over 2 hrs.

    A big hint is the review by Aint it Cool News when they wrote the final hour. There has to be a first hour for there to be a final hour.

    At this stage, I don't really believe anything Bay or Nelson says.

    Yeah, because the runtime of the movie is clearly something they'd lie about.

    Actually it depends on how a battle is done. Some movie battles are just a mess of things happening just to happen like Revenge of the Fallen, some of them are just something to look cool, and in some films you've got story, character and all that rolled in with the battle.

    Take a film like Saving Private Ryan. Most of the movie's run time is taken up with battles yet it still advances a story nicely while bullets are flying around. Battles make for nice tense moments in a film and great film makers know how to make battles an important part of the story instead of just a way to get rid of the bad guys because you didn't have any other ideas.

    well with it under 2 hours, that actually may mean there is no room for error. Means we have developed all the characters, so bay maybe thinking the film does not need to be dragged out, with more pointless explanations just get on with it.

    Nelson confirmed the film will run over 2 hours on SFTE and he has no reason to lie about that since it contains no spoilers ,DOTM will most likely run about the same length as the first 2 films, so about 2 hours 30 minutes.

    Why wouldn't they lie? They lie about pretty much everything else, so why not wind the fans up even more the the run time? I wouldn't be suprised if Bay said tomorrow that Megatron isn't in this film either.

    I think they would have more important things to do than to wind fans up about the run time of the film.

    The spoilers are out for the movie, there won't be many more character surprises, that's as much as I'll say so I don't ruin it for the people that don't know.


    As for "why wouldn't they lie" about the run time? Because that's a stupid thing to lie about. They've certainly succeeded in making you super paranoid though.

    I think your username should be Breakdown 2010. Certainly fits your excessive paranoia about this whole thing.
