On Gear Live: Apple Changes the Mac Forever, iOS 14, and more w/ Guest Mark Gurman!

First Look: Transformers 3 Teaser Trailer


I assure you – even though this trailer does not include any glimpses of Shia LaBeouf, a Michael Bay babe (a.k.a. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) or dizzying action, it is indeed for a Transformers film.

So where will Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon take us? Well, as the title suggests, to the actual moon -- with the crew of Apollo 11.

Maybe if President Obama gets a chance to watch the film next year, he’ll reconsider his position on sending more astronauts back there?

Transformers 3 will launch July 1, 2011.

Megan Fox Not a Part of Transformers 3

Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox and Michael Bay

UPDATE: Megan Fox is now claiming that she chose not to come back to the franchise.

It looks like a little bad-mouthing can go a long way.

Megan Fox may have compared Michael Bay to Hitler well over a year ago (and even made a “genuine” apology last fall), but it appears the sting from her comments has not yet subsided.

Although it was believed the dark-haired beauty would return to Transformers 3, it’s just been announced that the role of Mikaela Banes has been cut. Sources say the search for a new love interest for Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) has now begun.
