Transformers 33 New Transformers 3 Behind The Scenes Clips [Update]

[Update: Check out the full set visit clip for Transformers 3!]

The third entry in Michael Bay’s giant robot franchise is officially titled Transformers: Dark of the Moon (no “the” or “side” is involved, apparently) and will involve a space race between the U.S. and Russia – one that the Autobots, Decepticons, and average Joe Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) get mixed up in as well.

Production on the third Transformers flick moved from Chicago down to Florida recently (see the Kennedy Space Center set photos), but Entertainment Tonight was able to visit the Windy City set before that and chat with Bay, LaBeouf, and several other members of the film’s crew.

Transformers 3 will feature franchise players Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson back in action as military men William Lennox and Robert Epps, respectively, while newcomer Rosie Huntington-Whitely will play Sam’s new love interest (who may be his future wife, Carla). They will be joined by numerous top-notch performers like Alan Tudyk as a Sector 7 agent, Oscar-winner Frances McDormand, and even John Malkovich as Sam’s boss (that could be entertaining).

Two clips from ET‘s behind-the-scenes look at Transformers: Dark of the Moon have made their way online and provide a glimpse at the production, which seems to feature (naturally) plenty of explosions and “Bayhem.” LaBeouf is sticking with his “‘Transformers 3‘ is good” line and praises the pic’s set pieces and screenplay as being the best in the franchise so far. Here’s to hoping that he’s not just humoring us.

Check out the ET clips below:

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen undoubtedly did suffer from the WGA strike in 2007-2008, though that doesn’t change the fact that, in terms of plot, it was a convoluted mess. We could go on about how obnoxious The Twins were (and we have) or that the jokes involving Sam’s mom getting high or a Transformer’s, um, “wrecking balls” were lame, but nowadays even moviegoers that enjoyed the second Transformers don’t deny that it could have been better.

Will Transformers 3 end the trilogy of CG robots battling one another on a high note? The story sounds better and the visual FX will look impressive as ever – plus (not to beat a dead horse or anything), the franchise doesn’t really have anywhere to go but up, right?

Transformers: Dark of the Moon arrives in 2D and 3D on July 1st, 2011.

  1. man that chick seemed nervous its funny how they all know the last movies blew

  2. So Michael Bay is crazy… haha

    • No, Michael Bay is just a one note director. All of his movies are based on his first movie Bad Boys (1. Lots of actions/explosions, and 2. hot chick)

  3. After all the talk of “DarkSIDE of the Moon,” “Dark of the Moon” sounds a bit odd.

  4. Dark of the Moon? No that won’t work at all. Please I hope they don’t have unicron in this. Please don’t taint anymore! why do I care?

  5. Its called “Dork of the Moon”

  6. I really didn’t mind the part where sam’s mom gets high, i thought it was the best comedy of the whole movie ;). But really we all go to these movies for three things: giant transforming robots that battle and change in to badass vehicles, hot women and nostalgia :).

  7. Dark of The Moon?? REALLY!? Why not call it Transformers 3: Bark at the Moon? lol. Seriously though it sounds to close to Darkside of the Moon by Pink Floyd. Transformers 3: No More Megan Fox movie career. You know what, I’d be content with JUST Transformers 3! No lame subtitle. Failing THAT, Transformers 3:Rise of Galvatron. Also Get rid of Hugo Weaving as the voice of Megatron, for me there is only ONE voice of Megatron and that is Frank Welker just as Peter Cullen is the voice of Optimus Prime. Just saying.

    • I just have a question?? does any one know
      when the shoots in chicago for Transformer’s
      3,was taken??date-month and days???
      Thank you if any one knows????

      • I forget when they started, but it was done mid-September.

  8. @Marcus HAHAhaha, Thats funny HAHA! *sarcasticaly*
    well the title is better than all the crap ya’ll have come up with, and besidesi dont watch a movie and judge it by the title.

  9. I just have a question,does anyone know when the shoots
    for the Tansformers 3 was taken in Chicago.The dates.
    ( month and days )???
    Thank you if anyone knows???

  10. NO WAY hugo weaving makes megatron way more badass than frank welker sorry, yes I’m an original transformers fan but if you truly compare welker to weaving, weaving does a far better megatron.

    oh and ummm WHAT HAPPENED TO RACHAEL TAYLOR!!!!!!!!!!!
    why wasnt she cameoed in the last movie and why isnt she in this movie?
    it would make sense if she was.

  11. Check out this clip from Transformers 3. Michael Bay cut the budget on this scene so he had more for a crazy fight scene.

    (This video is in no way related to the film “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”. It is just to provide a laugh)

  12. Haven’t they realized by now that we don’t give a damn about Sam or any of the other useless humans……? I like the movies for what they are, a way to get childhood movies to life, and I do not think there would be any other way for it to happen live action. More robots, less bs. And more Optimus kicking ass.
