According to Twitter rumours, the studio version of new Mercy is going to be on the Transformers 3 soundtrack. This is not officially confirmed yet.

As much as I dislike new Mercy, I do hope it's not relegated to this soundtrack. How is a song about complicated love going to fit in a mindless action movie?

Fighting Robots, explosion, more fighting robots, explosion, cliche action romance scene, explosion, fighting robots, end.

Yeah... U2 shouldn't be relegated to such mediocrity.

might not be heard in the movie at all. or could be on the radio during a Shia make out scene? like when Bumblebee changes teh stations all around when Shia and Megan Fox are riding around?

Ahhh disappointing. I don't care if it soundtracks Saw 12, just so long as it's released!! Man I want to hear it.

Apparently the song  is played in the movie itself, though.

That could actually be fun: people will wonder who wrote that. I'm pretty sure no-one will get it's U2.
And if it is played, we'll see if they play the "Rare and Remaster" version or a new studio version.

By studio version, do you mean the original version that was  left of HTDAAB?

Not the watered down version that U2 have played live during the 360 Tour...right?  ;)

Good news: Mercy in a movie
Bad news: The movie is Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon.

I think it'll probably be recognised; Mercy is pretty 'classic U2' sound. I doubt it'll be the old version, they definitely seem to have (thankfully) abandoned that.

Transformers is the biggest piece of crap ever put on film. I hope U2 have nothing at all to do with it.
