Release Date for Transformers: Dark of the Moon Moves Up Two Days

Posted May 20th, 2011 at 4:30 am

In what represents a huge showing of confidence Paramount is moving up the release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon to June 29th from its original July 1st date. Deadline reports positive reaction to screenings has prompted the studio to shift the release to Wednesday.

Typically films that are worried over poor word of mouth will avoid Wednesday releases as the bad buzz would spread before the weekend. Coming off Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which most found to be a disappointment, the studio and director Michael Bay have been making a big effort to prove the final entry in the trilogy will deliver. The early positive reports and the release date move should be nothing but encouraging for fans.
