Japanese Movie Update from the Tokyo International Gift Show

Tformers is reporting some details coming out of the Tokyo International Gift Show about the Japanese release of the Transformers movie.  Here are the highlights:

The movie will be released in Japan in August, which is about a month later than its US release.

The promotional material for the movie in Japan does not show the robots themselves, which could be an attempt to make the look of the robots more of a surprise for the Japanese audience.

There will be something called a "Road Show", which sounds like a sneak preview showing, in Japan on August 4th.

For more information and the flyer from the show, you can see the original TFormers report here.  For discussion, feel free to drop by the Allspark thread started by Weremole on the subject here.
