Transformers: The IMAX Experience will be released on Sept 21 and will include new footage. [thumbsup]

They had to come up with something since that Rolling Stones film fell through. Can't see this doing much business in September, though. I don't think I want to see it again.

I'll just wait for BEOWULF.

Of course, the added footage cost may help to expedite IMAX's fall to financial ruin, driving the final nail in the coffin before they abandon film.

Sounds like a back handed way to claim the summer boxoffice crown from Spidey 3.

I second that, I've seen the film 3 times already. I will be there on opening night in IMAX if it opens in one close to me.

The action sequences were way to fast! I hope they put some extra footage in some of the fights... the fight of Bumblebee with the police car (the first fight) wasn't shown really good, so I hope to see more of those action sequences...but....

I will also wait for Beowulf, because a film in IMAX with Angelina Jolie!!! WOW... I'm not entirely sure who is hotter... Megan Fox or Angelina Jolie.
Maybe it's a good idea if Megan is making a movie with Angelina in IMAX format... [Eek!]

I guess we'll find out what a real Michael Bay seizure-cam epic looks like on an IMAX screen. It's possible this movie will make more than a few people throw up.

Where is any of this documented? I've seen a handful of 'speculation' statements - but one would think that with a short 4 weeks until this supposed release, IMAX & Dreamworks/Paramount would be hyping the crap out of an IMAX presentation. Yet neither web site has any mention of an IMAX release.

Comingsoon.net has a release about it. I would think that Mr. Olpin might have heard something since hes working in an IMAX booth?
