Transformers: Dark of the Moon's Moscow World Premiere (Updated)

Today, Transformers: Dark of the Moon premiered in Moscow. The film opens the Moscow International Film Festival. As with all premieres, you get your usual red green carpet images of the stars and director. Linkin Park was also on hand with a free concert. With it comes a press conference and shorter one-on-one interviews. No press conference video yet available but below are links to galleries and video embeds of interviews with the cast. I will likely add links and whatever else that pops up as more news from the premiere hits the web. Thanks to Eanetdude for some links and Tamar for Moscow pics.

Update: Added more links to galleries and a new video from Paramount that summarizes the day's festivities with a tilt (of course) to promote the movie.

  1. So why do the russians get it first?

  2. "So why do the russians get it first?"

    Because it was really USA who lost the cold war, and history books lies.

  3. Because ShockWave was in Russia.

  4. *duh* I forgot

  5. Actually he was in Tchenobill, wich is not in Russia but the Ukraine. XD

  6. If they ever do a 4th Transformers movie. It should be about Sam Witwicky's son. In the old cartoon, Spike and Carly had a son name Daniel.

  7. Any reviews come out of it?

  8. Because that way it can get pirated and sent here before it releases
