Flash Mob: Skip TRANSFORMERS this weekend.

Let's see how much power the audience has. This weekend has been set aside for TRANSFORMERS 2... no other major releases will open. In limited release we have Katheryn Bigelow's HURT LOCKER which looks great... and I think she's a great director who deserves a big break. If you are interested in that film, and you live in one of the cities where it's playing, why not see HURT LOCKER instead of TRANSFORMERS 2?

If you don't live in one of those cities, why not skip TRANSFORMERS and see UP or HANGOVER or PROPOSAL again? Or whatever movie that's slipped past in the glut of summer movies and may be on its way out of cinemas? If you're going to see a movie this weekend, why does it have to be the new one?

Michael Bay got paid $80 million for the first TRANSFORMERS, let's see if we can make him sweat a little?

Pass it on... It will be a fun little game for all of us to play - and be sure to tell anyone you know in Hollywood's coveted 15-25 year old demographic to play along. See something *other than* TRANSFORMERS 2 this weekend and see what happens. Let's see if we can make it #2 instead of #1! Now *that* would be messing with Hollywood!

I take it you don't care for the Transformer's franchise

Or even see STAR TREK if you've been resistant to it. There's a reason it's still number 7 after a month and a half of release.

The wife and I have seen it 5 times, though. I'd really like to see UP soon.

You know, if one person, just one person does it they may think he's really sick and they won't take him. And if two people, two people do it, in harmony, they may think they're both gay and they won't take either of them. And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking in refusing to see Transformers and walking out. They may think it's an organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day,I said fifty people a day walking in refusing to see Transformers. And friends they may thinks it's a movement.
