Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Poster Shows More Than Meets the Eye .. But Only a Little More

I think it’s hard to argue against the poster campaign for the first Transformers. In hindsight I think it wasn’t all that inspired or original, but it did use the movie’s main assets (GIANT ROBOTS!) very well and got the job done. Maybe it could have been better artistically, but from a marketing perspective it was great.

And the poster campaign for the second movie seems to be following in the footsteps of the original. The teaser shows very little, but enough of it is new to make us take notice and to get people speculating. The giant metal monsters are apparently still very cool. And just as a piece of imagery I even find this more interesting than any of the posters for the first movie.

The poster even managed to spark some internet discussion about the apparent similarity of this to the Decepticons’ original logo. It’s always good to see a poster for a major franchise like this that manages to be engaging to both causal and more hardcore fans.

In a somewhat related note, the guys over at Transformers Live Action Movie Blog have an enhanced version of the image that reveals … well, not all that much. Still worth taking a look though:

    At least this isn’t as gay as the GI JOE poster. Its not half bad if its part of a larger set of marketing material that includes posters that have actual meaningful images on them. As is, this looks like some sort of modern art.

    [...] hate it in any way, but it just failed completely to pick up my interest. The sole exception was the first poster, which was a pretty decent teaser and got me to read a lot about the film, something a hadn’t [...]
