Heads up! Transformers: Dark of the Moon


Shia Labeouf, Director Michael Bay on set of Transformers 3

While HBO’s playing, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, I came across googling the third installment of the successful film franchise about robots fighting here on earth.  The next movie will be Transformers: Dark of the Moon – and the title itself is really brain-itching.

With the help of Wikipedia, here’s some notables about the upcoming movie:

– Megan Fox won’t be part of it anymore – TOO SAD! damn!

– Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will be Sam’s new love interest who I found to be equally pretty and equally hot.. 🙂 but I still go for Megan.. hehe

– Patrick Dempsey will be joining the team – yep! the Grey’s Anatomy star.

– That the film’s director, Michael Bay decided to release the movie by July 1, 2012 – not 2011! – so there’s quite a misunderstanding there. 😛

– That the shoot is ongoing already.  An extra was seriously injured while filming.  According to Wikipedia, The accident happened when a steel cable snapped from a car being towed, due to a failed welding, hitting the extra’s car and eventually her skull. The extra, identified as Gabriella Cedillo, had to undergo brain surgery. The injury has left her permanently brain-damaged, paralyzed on her left side and her left eye stitched shut. As a result, Paramount took responsibility for the accident and decided to cover all medical costs incurred by Cedillo. In spite of this, on October 5, Cedillo’s family filed a lawsuit, which cites seven counts of negligence against Paramount, D.W. Studios and several other defendants (not including Bay), with total damages sought in excess of US$350,000. The outcome of the lawsuit ultimately cleared the studio from responsibility since all safety precautions were in place, and deemed the accident as unforeseeable.

– Then, on October 11, while filming a chase scene at 3rd Street and Maryland Avenue, SW, a Washington DC Metropolitan Police K9 Unit SUV struck the Camaro that portrays Bumblebee in the film. The area had been closed off by the DC police, and it is not clear why the SUV got in it. Both drivers were uninjured, but the Camaro was severely damaged. – And this gotta hurt Chevrolet because I found out that it’s the only CAMARO made and the sole purpose of it is for the film only – but this I got to still confirm.

– That Ramon Rodriguez is reprising his role once again.  Too bad for him he was not recognized as the comic relief of the second part.  I think his character should make a mark on the upcoming film – because he could have given it more.  Every lead role has a sidekick!

The movie’s out on July 1, 2011 in conventional and IMAX theaters.  Screenings also depend on certain areas and some information might still change, besides there’s still a lot of time ahead.
