Official Transformers 3 Website Updated

The official website for the Transformers movies has updated its look to reflect the upcoming movie Transformers: Dark of the Moon which was officially revealed via Entertainment Tonight. As you can see, the new logo uses the same font as previous movies but with a sharper looking black and silver color scheme. Plus you may notice that the font is filled with the image of the moon. Another thing to note is the title of the movie is Transformers: Dark of the Moon, not Transformers: The Dark of the Moon as we know it before.

The official website is

P/s: Updated my blog header to reflect the new logo.
 Prime: Cool!

TF3 New Teaser Poster? (Updated)

A new image suggesting possible teaser poster for Transformers: The Dark of the Moon has been posted by The image was spotted in a hotel conference room and shows the head of the film's main villain, Shockwave behind the moon emblazed with the Decepticon logo.

It's quite hard to tell whether it's fake or not. From my point of view, I'd say it's fake because the level of detail of Shockwave's head is not up to the movie's standard plus it looks too organic (Transformers are made of metal!). However I do like of the poster's tagline, "Be Afraid of the Dark". It sounds cool to me.

Update: It seems that the poster is really a fake one. Michael Bay, the film director confirm this on his official forums, posting, "Total fake poster. The story logline is also a misdirect."

Prime: Interesting...

Transformers 3 Official Plot Summary

The official plot of Transformers: The Dark of the Moon has been revealed. Via TFW2005, it comes from Amazon as the official description of a book published by Reader's Digest, “Transformers 3 Push-Pops Board Book”. Below is the description:

The Autobots, led by Optimus Prime, are back in action, taking on the evil Decepticons, who are determined to avenge their defeat in 2009’s Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends. There's new characters too, including a new villain in the form of Shockwave, a longtime "Transformers" character who rules Cybertron while the Autobots and Decepticons battle it out on Earth.

Shockingly, it has reference to Transformers G1 (the Shockwave part). For those who didn't know, G1 or Generation One refers to the original Transformers cartoon series aired in the 1980s.

Transformers: The Dark of the Moon will be released on 1st of July, 2011.

Prime: Looking forward to it.

TF3 at Kennedy Space Center

Transformers The Dark of the Moon production is currently filming at Kennedy Space Center. So, if you read the spoiler in my previous post, it can be assumed that the spoiler is true as filming in Kennedy Space Center supports that spoiler details.

NASA Space Flight website reported that Discovery space shuttle on Launchpad may be filmed in Transformers 3.

...flashes and bangs of a different nature can be expected at the pad over the coming days, as movie crews film scenes for the Hollywood blockbuster Transformers 3, with Saturday processing information noting work to support filming should proceed as planned over this weekend.

Scenes are expected to be shot at Pad 39A on Wednesday – understood to be timed with Discovery being on show with the RSS retracted, meaning the Shuttle may gain herself some credits in the movie.

Hundreds of extras have received security clearance to be in the grounds of KSC during the filming, while Cape Canaveral sources noted Atlas and Delta resources will also be involved in some scenes. Director Michael Bay had previously filmed at KSC during the making of Armageddon – which involved scenes with Atlantis and Endeavour.

Below is various pictures taken from the set.

Prime: Nice!

Transformers 3 Official Title!

It seems that the official title of Transformers 3 has been leaked.


TFW2005 first discovered the title through the listing of some upcoming movie tie-in novels, “Transformers: The Dark of the Moon – Secret of the Autobots“, “Transformers: The Dark of the Moon – Autobots Betrayed!“, and “Transformers: The Dark of the Moon: Invasion of the Decepticons”, which are set to be released on May 17, 2011 (close to the movie release date - July 1, 2011).

This title seems would be coherent to the leaked opening scene of the movie:

(Hightlight the text below to see the spoiler)

"There's a disturbance on the Moon. A robot shaped disturbance. Scientists on Earth see this and the information gets passed up the chain of command. In the White House men in black suits are breathlessly running through the halls, and they burst into the Oval Office. The president is behind the desk, back turned to the door, looking out the window. One of the men tells the president, 'Sir, something's happened on the Moon!' The president turns around…"
And it's John F. Kennedy.

Chud has this info, which they describe as the opening scene of the film -- the sequence takes place in the early 1960s. The arc of the story involves the Transformers and how they played into the space race, "and this is the reason why John F. Kennedy was so hot to make sure America was first to the Moon."
