I just recieved a pleasant note from Paramount asking for the "2" to be removed from the title of the sequel to Transformers. Names and contact info removed to protect the innocent:
Hi There!So there you go, the title isn't "Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen" but "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" In bold because why not bold it. I guess this goes along with the streak lately in Hollywood to avoid adding a number to sequels (Incredible Hulk, Dark Knight, and many others).
I handle the online publicity for Paramount / Dreamworks and I am working on the new Transformers film. Would you mind correcting your information on the site as the title of the film is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (please take out the 2). Thank you so much! We appreciate your help.
Also this works with what "Peter_Porker" found as a new domain registered by Hasbro that will probably be used to help promote the film and toyline.
Domain Name: TRANSFORMERSREVENGEOFTHEFALLEN.COMOut of pure laziness, I will probably continue to use shorthand of TF2 or Transformers 2 or whatever else pops in my mind.

Update: Should remark that the address is legit and a quick google search confirmed that use by Paramount and Hasbro.
Update 2: A member of the TF2 writing triumvirate, Roberto Orci, posted on TFW2005 "No, it's true. No 2 in the title."
