DOTM News: Possible Running Time, Iridescent Release Date & Boom

Three quick stories around Transformers: Dark of the Moon about estimated running time, release date for Iridescent single and video from Chicago set that I don't recall seeing before.

Dutch website Pathe Cinema's page on DOTM put the movie's running time at 1 hour and 49 minutes. However, Nelson later debunked that writing, "False. It's over 2 hours." For Hollywood, 2 hours or less is the sweet spot with going past 2 and half hours only for good reasons. Guess we will find out soon where DOTM falls in that range. (via TFW2005, thanks to Sahara for the link)

It seems that the first single from the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack will officially be the remix of Linkin Park's Iridescent. No surprise. It also seems that release is coming up soon as Amazon UK lists the release date as May 16th, while iTunes has it at May 22nd and Amazon US shows a date of May 17th. So what we learned is the single may or may not be out sometime in the next two weeks.

So you know that scene in the trailer where Prime comes in swooping in and tears through the Decepticon ranks? Pretty sure the video below from Chicago last year is when that scene was filmed. Thanks to Jeff of Pixel Rally for the link.
Update: Thanks to Ian here is a little confirmation as he took a still from the trailer that matches the car flip at about the 49 second point in the video below.


  1. Hope that the running time is more than two hours!

  2. I really hope it stays between two and two and half hours.

  3. ROTF was almost 2.5hrs I think, and we see how well that did. I'd say for something like this, two hours would be the longest it can be before you start to lose people.

  4. More and more details pointing to this movie being cheap and so messed up. They didn't even pay Linkin Park for a new song, a dumb remix instead.. cheap. And movie running time is going to be shorter because the movie is lame and 3D costs too much.

  5. Hi all,
    New teaser with Dempsey and Malkovitch ;)

  6. UGH...The trolling,YUCK!!!!!
