We still haven’t seen an actual trailer for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon yet, just some awesome TV spots, but thanks to a reveal of some info over on TrailerAddict, we know a teaser is coming in a few weeks. In the meantime, Empire debuted a new cover featuring an Autobot called Sentinel Prime, who’s a “big brother and mentor to Optimus Prime.” Obviously he’s going to have to come in and help out. Other news from the mag is that TF3 won’t have “dorky humor” or “sand”, but they will give “weight” to the bots again: “when robots die, they’re really going to die and we’re gonna show that.”
Bay describes this third installment as “kind of like a spy movie.” Bay also reveals the Ferrari is a Decepticon named Dreadbox, and there’s a bot that “the scale on one of them is jawdropping.” Can’t wait for more! Transformers Dark of the Moon is 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 bringing Transformers 3 to theaters everywhere in 3D starting July 1st, 2011 this summer!

The first trailer for next summer’s blockbuster sequel Transformers: Dark of the Moon is supposed to hit sometime tomorrow, but a new promo poster, maybe even an official teaser poster, has surfaced already. JoBlo got ahold of the image, and it’s actually just a better quality version of a poster at the 2010 Licensing International Expo earlier this year. It’s a simple, and not entirely unexpected image of Optimus Prime standing triumphantly with lots of orange embers flying about, likely from one of Michael Bay’s trademark explosions. It’s not too amazing, but this will surely have people getting excited and complaining all at once.
Though the plot is still under wraps (with the exception of some spoiler-filled tidbits that have surfaced online), Transformers: Dark of the Moon will employ all new giant robots fighting for supremacy and survival. Franchise stars like Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel and John Tuturro are all returning for the sequel and will be joined by new cast members like Patrick Dempsey, Alan Tudyk, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, Ken Jeong and a fancy new Ferrari autobot. Stay tuned for the first official look at this anticipated sequel with the debut of the first trailer sometime tomorrow.
