Transformers 2: teaser Poster, Sideswipe

The poster looks very obscure, not really recognizable as anything Transformers. For the casual theater goer it could look like Underworld or any horror film

Re: Transformers 2: teaser Poster, Sideswipe

I dunno. The edges of those evil eyes are easily recognizable as metallic. Not many movies hitting theaters nowadays with big robots and that distinctive angular design aesthetic.

Two things:
1) Transformers the movie made an impact its highly likely most people would see the face and think Transformers.
2) For those not able to gasp a connection simply based on the slightly obscured image there is always the 'Transformersthemovie.com' tag right below and in plain sight of the tag line "Revenge is Coming".

Re: Transformers 2: teaser Poster, Sideswipe

there's more to the poster than meets the eye

i saved the poster myself and fiddled with the saturation, contrast and shit and it really is like that.

You sure it's Sideswipe? Could be the Fallen for all we know.

Re: Transformers 2: teaser Poster, Sideswipe

he's referring to the second image linked which is a shot of the toy Sideswipe from a catalogue or something.

the character on the poster probably is the Fallen.

Other than the "transformersmovie.com" web address at the bottom.

I might not like the poster, but I can't wait for the film.

Neat! Those horizontal line details on the sides of the head are very reminscent of Egyptian design, something that is a part of the film (so much so it will be reflected in the toy packaging itself).

Re: Transformers 2: teaser Poster, Sideswipe

If it's as lame as the first one I'll pass. Half of a city is destroyed by huge robots, and yet no one talked and the aliens are kept secret? Give me a break. Dozens of people are most likely dead, and no one talked about giant robots?
