    I'm normally not one to complain about movie stuff but COME ON!!!!

    I'm getting so sick of seeing Bumblebee and Prime all over everything, they've been promoted into the ground.

    There are tons of other characters as well, why not make a poster that features "all" of the main characters.

    I personally think Featuring the fallen overshadowing the main characters in the background with say DEVASTATOR standing atop a Pyramid with some Nest Vehicles, soldiers and jets would be epic as a Movie Poster.

    Bring back the gloomy motif from the first movie poster featuring Prime and megs on either side with mikaela and sam in the center. the colors were great and brought in a grungy feel.

    This poster and the other ones before it were just not up to par in terms of advertising the dark elements of this second movie It's called "REVENGE OF THE FALLEN" not "Revenge of the Lollypop Guild"

    Run Prime! Run 'Bee! Run Sam and Mikaela! Rays of Egyptian sunlight are coming to get yous!

    I guess i can understand why Prime and BB are the only bots getting promoted in all these posters: they're the most recognizable and memorable from the first movie and they're trying to draw in those people who saw the 1st movie. I do think it would provide an ominous teaser tho' if they could include the Fallen's optics overlooking our heroes; afterall, the Fallen is referenced in the title of this 2nd movie as well.

    It's a very nice looking poster. But if Optimus and Bumblebee need to get somewhere in a hurry, shouldn't they transform into cars?

    The poster says out everywhere 24th June, that either means:

    1) The info that was released saying UK gets the movie on the 19th was wrong

    or

    2) It just means that the film is out EVERYWHERE then, and doesn't care about individual release dates

    Otherwise I do like the poster :D

    The film is out on 19th June in the UK. It is a general 'international' poster, which doesn't necessary apply to every country, but most.

    I don't know why everyone is complaining about Optimus and Bumblebee being on the poster, like they're being "promoted into the ground" as one of you said...

    ... uh, aren't they the stars of the movie? Wouldn't you want them on the poster? If they weren't on there, I bet most of you would be complaining that they were absent.

    Usually the international poster is the final poster for everyone - they just switch the release date (and the language) depending on the country.

    The reason why Bumblebee and Prime are in the posters because they are the main Transformers characters. AKA, the stars of the robot cast. Why do you think other movie posters mainly show the stars (or at least main cast) of a movie?

    They're trying to keep The Fallen a surprise, since people who have some inkling of Transformers are expecting Megatron to return as the main villain. And even if they weren't keeping the Fallen a surprise, well, why show some obscure robot that hardly anybody outside of the TF fandom knows to advertise the movie? What would that achieve? The same goes for Devastator, really, because unless you as a layperson has been paying attention to ROTF news, you would probably not know the Constructicons combine into a larger robot.

    Geez, you dudes don't understand marketing.
