One year ago today, Transformers: Dark of the Moon was released in select theaters at 9pm while others got to see it three hours later. So in honor of that day, I want you guys to comment below and tell your DOTM story. What happened when you saw the movie for the first time and how excited were you? I remember that I went to an 8:40pm 3D showing on June 28th with a couple friends. The anticipation was killing me and while driving to the theater, I could not believe that I was about to see the movie. One and my friends and I got there about 20 minutes before the movie started. (We had all gotten our tickets earlier that day) My other friend that was attending though was running late and just barely got there on time. The theater was a little more than half full, but I expected that because not too many people knew about this early showing. It wasn't packed, but it was one of the best audiences I've seen a movie with. Every funny part was laughed at and everyone applauded at the end. I even remember that at the beginning of the movie when Carly was walking up the staircase, a guy in front of me leaned over to his kid and said, "Now that's the kind of Transformer I like to see," which got a good laugh out of the people around us. After watching the amazing movie, my friends and I went out to the lobby to find a very, very long line for the midnight showing of DOTM. One of my friends walked up to a guy standing in line and asked, "What movie are you guys seeing?" The guy almost instantaneously shouted, "Mr. Popper's Penguins!" My friend then had a funny expression realizing that was a stupid question. I really had trouble sleeping that night because I just couldn't stop thinking about how awesome that movie was.
So what's your story? Comment below about how your DOTM experience was and if there are enough stories, I'm going to compile them into an upcoming post!
