    Thanks for those links to that website that tells us, what happens in those scenes shown during the credits. Unforunately though, the third link you posted didn't work, meaning the one for Tranformers: Dark of the Moon.

          @themoviefanatic if the first two films had a scene after the credits were over then what are they? Because The first film showed Sam's parents being interviewed and it showed Starscream leaving earth which happened during the credits. In Revenge of the Fallen, during the credits, it showed Sam returning to class at college and it also had Sam and Mikaela riding on a motorcycle kissing eachother...that was it. So I don't what you saw, but all I got to see when the credits were over was a Paramount/DreamWorks logos for all three movies.

              No, it was not after the credits though , so it wasn't an after credits scene. Transformers 1 and Transformers 2 both 2 had one, so i was kind of shocked to see that there was not one after the credits for Transformers 3. I didn't mean the scene that is shown during the credits, i ment anything from when after the credits are finished.

                @themoviefanatic It did, it was the scene with Simmons during the credits, not after the credits.

                              Just seen it. Really shocked at times. I don't want to spoile anything but f*ck you....... !!!!

                              and the most surprising thing about this movie : it's not the typical Bay movie, he's trying new things, The girl her is muuuch better than the fox, the two little bots are - surprise - not annoying !!! So the whole movies have surprises for the audience. Bays best movie I think, definitely a good one !!!

                                  Bring on the weekend! Wondering if this should be my next 3D film? Has anybody seen the 3D version yet? Haven't seen one since Tron: Legacy and I really enjoyed it.

                                          This will post lower numbers than TF2 did as far as opening. But I think it will have better longevity since the word of mouth is very good.
