Transformers: Dark of the Moon hits theaters June 28, but the film premiered in Moscow a couple days ago, with director Michael Bay and stars Shia LaBeouf, John Malkovich, Tyrese Gibson, Jush Duhamel, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in attendance. We will have our review online shortly, but until then, Paramount has sent us a video of Linkin Park playing at the premiere. Check it out…


Mali and I saw the film last night. For those who liked the first and despised the second, this is somewhere in the middle. If you’re looking for robots to smash stuff and for Michael Bay’s action insanity, the film delivers that in the film’s third act – which is an hour long battle in the middle of Chicago. For those looking for strongly drawn characters, or a plot that is all that involving, look elsewhere.

Regardless, the film hits theaters for the fourth of July weekend and it seems critic-proof. Michael Bay has done a good job trying to sell the film’s 3-D as more in line with James Cameron than the relentless stream of indifferently dimensional titles that have been hitting theaters since Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland. This summer may kill the 3-D boom, one that started with films being post-converted into the format. We may yet see 3-D films post-converted into 2-D.

Are you looking forward to the Bayhem?
