Paramount has released their first teaser-trailer for Michael Bay's Transformers: Dark of the Moon, courtesy of Apple. Not so sure I like that title, it's too close to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. This will be the third installment in Hasbro's epic franchise, which left many unsatisfied two years ago with the release of Revenge of the Fallen. I actually enjoyed the film, but there was just too many things going on at once to love it. Someone needs to remind Bay how important simplicity really is. Even though I'm annoyed they are not bringing back my girl-crush, Megan Fox, they are adding a couple more cool peeps to the mix - John Malkovich and Patrick Dempsey. The new female lead will be Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. I have to wonder why they fashioned this teaser-trailer after the first movie's teaser back in 2007. Couldn't they think of something new, something better? I'm not that impressed with it, but I'm sure hoping the movie will be. I'm a huge fan of the franchise. Take a look!
The Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) must help his robot friends defeat enemies like Shockwave.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon is again directed by everyone's favorite explosive director, Michael Bay, of the previous two Transformers movies as well as Bad Boys I and II, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and The Island. The screenplay was written by Ehren Kruger, who co-wrote the Revenge of the Fallen script but went solo this time, and also worked on The Ring, The Skeleton Key and Brothers Grimm screenplays. Paramount is releasing this bound to be a huge blockbuster movie to theaters everywhere in 3D (that could actually be pretty sweet) starting July 1st, 2011. Next summer it's starting too look pretty good.
