Transformers Release Date Moved Up

Fans will get to see DreamWorks/Paramount’s Transformers a day earlier than was originally planned. The studio has moved up director Michael Bay’s sci-fi action-adventure a day, from July 4 to July 3.

Just a few days ago, Warner Bros. moved Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix up two days from July 13 to July 11. Now Transformers gets the additional Tuesday to rake in more sales before the popular J.K. Rowling franchise returns to theaters.

On the other hand, the July 3rd release cuts into Fox’s Live Free or Die Hard, which is set to open on June 27, just six days before Transformers.
