Linkin Park Track Featured In Next Transformers Movie

Linkin Park's "Iridescent" will be featured in the upcoming Transformers movie. The band had contributed songs to the previous two films in the franchise, "What I've Done" and "New Divide."
New DivideTransformers: Dark Of The Moon, the third in the live-action Transformers series, will be released July 1.
Michael Bay, director of the movie, says he believes the new song, which appears on Linkin Park's album A Thousand Suns, will be a hit.
"The first two songs were huge hits and I have no doubt that this new song will be equally as successful," Bay said.
Meanwhile, the band had this to say about the inclusion of the track in the movie: "'Iridescent' has always been a fan-favorite when we play live, so we're thrilled that Michael Bay decided to feature it in his thirdTransformers movie."

New Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Image Suggests That The Movie Is A Pink Floyd Rock Opera

Transformers: Dark of the MoonPrepare, Michael Bay fans. The first theatrical trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon is almost here. For the past few days we've been posting images from the movie, including the new Decepticon known as Shockwave, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Bumblebee, but today's image is a bit of a mystery. 

Apple has released the new still from the film and...holy shit I just figured it out. The title of the movie is Dark of the Moon? They release an image of a Great Gig In The Sky? Transformers 3 is actually a rock opera featuring the music of Pink Floyd. I'm also going to wager a guess that the first song they sing will be "Brain Damage" - it's the perfect note to get things started on after the noisy trainwreck that was Transformers 2. 

Check out the image below and see it in high res over on Apple.
