    I really hope it does end up being 3 hours long.

    I love epic, lengthy movies. They feel like a journey.

    And that's why I don't want it to be that long.

    AOE didn't pay off with that 165 minutes. Plus a shortening of time would be actually listening to one of the criticisms of the TF films.

    AOE is the worst movie among all TF movie, even it have lots of action but is just very bored and ordinary action sequences, if TF5 are as great as TF1, why not 3 hours?is totally worth the eye candy..now no more Ehren Kruger, it won't bore you again.

    I don't know why I'm surprised that you can't read.

    3 hours would be nightmarish, and I say this as a Bayformer diehard.

    If it's a 3 hour movie I'm definitely gonna have to dehydrate myself so I don't have to get up to pee

    Seriously though I'm sure it'll be around 2 and 1/2 hours

    Well, it's a good thing my college quarter ends that week, so I can see this without having to worry about assignments. :) 

    While I wouldn't put it past Bay to make this a three hour movie, it's more likely that it's in the two and a half area.

    Most people could barely stand AOE's 165 minute runtime. TLK being 3 hours would make sure to bury whatever was planned of the rest of this franchise into the dirt. That's a fact, regardless of what the critics think.

    Remember, the runtime works as an attractive/repelling trait to all movies, especially for the average moviegoer. While true that favorable franchises/cinematic universes could probably pull it off with one or two movies, it would be solely because of their favorability and popularly. Transformers definitively has the popularity. The favorability though is non existent with critics and is a mixed bag with audiences...with a good bit siding with the critics negative outlook. Doesn't really gear it up to release a 3 hour epic. And done by Michael Bay too? Talking dead on arrival.

    The thing is, I actually find this 3 hr rumor to be believable given how long AOE was and how much seems to be going on in TLK.

    Bottom line, if this movie ends up being longer than AOE than this movie will deserve whatever reviews it gets. How hard is it to aim for a freakin' 2 hr 20 min runtime?

    There is a early screening in China on the June 13, so we will find out the true duration of TLK in a couple of weeks

    Despite that AOE was 2hrs 45mins long it still did very well at the box office with a revenue of over $1 billion. I think that TLK will do well still at the box office even if it is going to be 3hrs 2mins long. I just checked on google now still saying the same 3hrs 2mins but still waiting for it to be confirmed on IMDb with there run time....

    Yeah 3 hours should be reserved for real epics such as the Lord of the Rings, Ben-Hur, etc. etc.

    Kids are able to sit more than 3 hours just to see their favourite robots.

    If it's 3 hours, critics won't even try. 0% Rotten Tomatoes. Will have horrible word of mouth. Will make less than one billion dollars.
