Transformers DOTM To Destroy Earth 2 Days Earlier

Michael Bay and the Paramount folks were so happy with their recent showing of 3D footage from “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” to journalists (with Bay and James Cameron present to talk up the 3D, natch), that they’ve decided to move the release date up two days, so “DOTM” will now open June 29th on Wednesday instead of the original July 1st on Friday.

An insider told Deadline:

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.

That means everyone will get the film on Wednesday except China and Japan.
