Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Transformers: Dark of the Moonis the third and final film in theTransformersfilm series , directed by Michael Bay and produced by Steven Spielberg . It is the sequel toTransformersandTransformers: Revenge of the Fallenand is scheduled for release on June 29 in selected locationsand July 1, 2011 in the US. The film will be presented in regular 2D, Real D 3D and IMAX ,featuring Dolby Surround 7.1 sound.

Shia LaBeouf , Josh Duhamel , Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro are set to reprise their starring roles, with Peter Cullen returning as the voice of Optimus Prime . Ehren Kruger , who collaborated in the writing of the second film, was again involved in the writing. Despite having initially been confirmed for the film,and with the film already into principal photography, it was announced that Megan Fox would not be reprising her role from the previous two films. With Fox's character Mikaela being dropped, Sam was assigned a new love interest, who will be played by English model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley . Also, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman , having written the first two films, did not return for the third installment in the series,which Orci had earlier somewhat anticipated, fearing the duo would "risk getting stale".Bay has stated this would be his last installment in the series.

The Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft on the Moon and must race against the Decepticons to find it and learn its secrets, which could turn the tide in the Transformers ' final battle.

Production

As a preemptive measure, Michael Lucchi and Paramount announced a July 1, 2011 release date in IMAX 3-D for a thirdTransformersfilm before completion ofRevenge of the Fallen. Director Michael Bay responded, "I said I was taking off a year fromTransformers. Paramount made a mistake in datingTransformers 3—they asked me on the phone—I said yes to July 1—but for 2012—whoops! Not 2011! That would mean I would have to start prep in September. No way. My brain needs a break from fighting robots."

On October 1, 2009, Bay revealed thatTransformers: Dark of the Moonhad already gone into pre-production, and its planned release was back to its originally intended date of July 1, 2011 rather than 2012.Filming started in May 2010, with shooting locations including Chicago, Florida, and Moscow.Due to the revived interest in 3-D technology brought in by the success ofAvatar,talks between Paramount, Industrial Light & Magic and Bay had considered the possibility of the next Transformers film to be filmed in 3-D. Testing has been performed in bringing the technology into Bay's work.Michael Bay was reluctant to film with 3-D cameras since in test he'd found them to be too cumbersome for his filming style, but he didn't want to implement the technology in post production either since he was not pleased with the results.

In a hidden extra for the Blu-ray version ofRevenge of the Fallen, Bay expressed his intention to makeTransformers 3not necessarily larger thanRevenge of the Fallen, but instead go deeper into the mythos, give it more character development, and make it darker and more emotional.Shortly after the release ofRevenge of the Fallen, Orci said he would like to introduce Unicron "for scale's sake",and Unicron is briefly shown in a secretTransformers 3preview feature in theRevenge of the FallenBlu-ray disc, but no comment is made on the subject.

Having been calledTransformers 3up to that point, the film's final title was revealed to beDark of the Moonin October 2010.

Despite Michael Bay's original denial of their return, Skids and Mudflap were once intended to appear in the film, restyled to both transform into black Chevrolet Sparks with green and orange stripes respectively.Scenes were even shot for them, but they have allegedly been dropped from the film's final cut.
