According to a new facebook posting, a new American Movie poster has June 21st on it, so it looks like their release date has been brought forward by two days... which isn't the first time Paramount has done a late change to a Transformers movie.

Now it means that we don't get to see it before America, as our release date is still June 22nd.

Now it looks like some IMAX theatres in America are having a 7pm session on June 20th (according to their website which is now selling tickets), the day before it officially opens in America.

Also at some Event Cinemas... and I was expecting some of the IMAX cinemas would as well, but nothing listed at this time.

More release dates have been added to the IMDB website, and a few date changes... and I've added or updated the more significant ones, and the countries in our region.

I've also added the current known running times of the regular and IMAX versions of the Movie, which are yet to be confirmed from an official source.

If these times end up being true, the regular cinema version will be 2 hours and 28 minutes, while the IMAX version will have an extra 4 minutes, at 2 hours and 32 minutes.

The British Board of Film Classifications has the regular version of the Movie clocking in at 2 hours, 28 minutes, and 53 seconds. It is also rated as having moderate action violence and moderate bad language, and lists all the naughty words used in this movie. (it could make for a fun "bingo" game, to see if you can find them all )

I've noted the running time in the first post, rounding to the nearest minute.

Still no official word on the IMAX length, but since the movie was filmed with IMAX cameras, there probably isn't any reason to have too much exclusive content, especially if it might impact on the cut (story) of the rest of the movie.

The movie has only been out for two weeks, and now that Spiderman is out, the sessions for TFs have been cut significantly in cinemas.

Interestingly, I've seen two TV commercials for it in the last two days after seeing none since the movie started, so Paramount must be desperately trying to get people to see it during the last weekend of the school holidays up here.

The commercials are noting the 3D version... did anyone here see it in 3D?
Was it worth it, and did you see the 2D version to see what the extra 4 minutes were?

And did anyone see it at any of the four IMAX cinemas in Australia (one in Sydney, two in Melbourne, one in Perth)?
If it was, I didn't expect that it would be off already, after just two weeks.
It ruins my run of seeing all of the Transformers movies on IMAX.

On a side note, explains why the front of store display shelves at ToysRUs no longer stock Tranformers toys (or reduced shelf space) but now full of Spidey & friends.

Just saw another two TV commercials for TF5 since I posted above half an hour ago.
Four times in one night... that's more times than I saw in a single day leading up to the release of the movie.
They must really want people to see it instead of Spiderman.
