Transformers: Dark of the Moon Getting Early Release

Deadline reports that Paramount has made the decision to release Transformers: Dark of the Moon two days early. Instead of coming out on July 1st, the movie will now come out on Wednesday, June 29th. This matches the release date of many international locations around the world. "Early response to footage, especially the 3D footage, has been great so we want to get the word out that this film is as good or better than the first and much better than the last," an insider just told [Deadline]. Except for China (July 8) and Japan (July 29) the rest of the world will have the film in theaters by July 1st. The news isn't really a surprise as the previous two Transformers films were released early as the studios often bump films up during the summer.

Speaking of DOTM, Counterpunch confirms that the 3D trailer is essentially identical to the 2D except for minor differences:
Yesterday I went to watch Pirates of the Caribbean 4 and before it started saw the trailer to DOTM in 3D here in Melbourne, Australia. Wow.... guess what? It's the same as the last official trailer released worldwide except for 3 major changes. a) We get to see Optimus and Ratchet walking in the Ark observing all the statis Autobots b) Shows more of the Dweller as it tears down the building Sam and Carly are in c) We get to see Optimus on flying mode shooting at the mouth of the Dweller in mid-sky. Really, really awesome!

    In the Netherlands the official date is june 30th, but that'll probably be june 29th. These big blockbusters in the Netherlands always get out the day before the official date.
    That was also the case with the 2 previous TF-films
