It just wouldn’t be a “Transformers” movie without a song by Linkin Park, now would it? I happen to really like the band, so I’m always down for a new ditty in a big-budget Hollywood summer blockbuster. And I gotta say — this one’s pretty badass. Does that make me a weird, unruly geek? Probably, but you’re just gonna have to deal with that. Anyway, for those of you who aren’t fans of Linkin Park, the appeal is this: Buried within the video you’re about to watch is new footage from the latest installment of the “Transformers” franchise. If you serioiusly dislike the band — and if you do, there’s no need to tell me about it — feel free to mute the sound until said footage has arrived.
“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, which stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Kevin Dunn, Julie White, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Patrick Dempsey, Alan Tudyk, John Turturro and Leonard Nimoy, opens on June 29th, 2010. And remember: It’s “Dark of the Moon”, not “Darkside of the Moon”. If you get it wrong, small children will ridicule you. Trust me. They will.
