More ‘Transformers 3′ Plot Details Emerge

We learned the official title of the third Transformers movie, Transformers: The Dark of the Moon, earlier this month. Now we have a bit more information about just what the plot of the film will be.

Amazon has posted a description of the Transformers 3 Push-Pops Board Book (it’s for the kids) and it contains a brief synopsis that seems to fit we what we already know about the threequel. Sort of.

Reports that the third Transformers movie would reveal that the alien robots played a role in the Cold War space race between the Soviet Union and the U.S. began to surface last June. A leaked description of the opening scene for Transformers 3 lent further support to this idea – as does the film’s subtitle, of course. The tie-in book synopsis suggests that the Autobots and Decepticons will be engaging in space-set warfare in the film, but not necessarily only in flashbacks to the 20th century.

Read on for the Transformers: The Dark of the Moon book description and see what we mean:

“The Autobots Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide and Sideswipe 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 (Shia LaBeouf)  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.”

So – there will be a modern-day space race between Russia and the U.S.? Michael Bay does know that the Cold War ended a while ago, right?

The most deadly member of the Decepticons, revealed at last.

The story for Transformers 3 does have promise and it’s been comforting to hear both LaBeouf and Bay finally admit that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was, well, not very good. Production on the third giant robots flick didn’t exactly get off to a stellar start, what with Megan Fox getting the boot and Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley being brought onboard, but Bay has assembled an otherwise solid (human) supporting cast for the film.

There’s no doubt that the third Transformers will be a box office hit – we’re all just hoping that it features a coherent story to go along with the CG robots wreaking havoc. A trailer for the film should be on the horizon soon and will hopefully help us maintain our semi-optimistic outlook for now.

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

  1. cold war?

      Actually, we are standing at the start of another COld War, so it is rather relavent to this period of time. Its been all over the news.

  2. This is the first time a Transformers movie sounded interesting to me .
    DONT MESS IT UP MICHAEL BAY!

    • BAHAHAHA!!! /snort AAAHHAHAHAHAHA!!!

      Whew! Sorry… you may as well have asked William Shatner not to overact.

      I smell a big stinky Unicron tie-in. He’s the moon, folks. And it will defy all logic and sense and you will walk out much more stupid that you walked in the theater when it releases. Just accept it.

      • hahahahaha!
        nicely said Nautius…

      • Nautius
        “I smell a big stinky Unicron tie-in. He’s the moon, folks. And it will defy all logic and sense and you will walk out much more stupid that you walked in the theater when it releases. Just accept it.”

        Paha unicorn was the moon of cybertron.Wow you know a load on Transformers.Besides this new plot is folling a story of the transformers armada, With megatron and shockwave based on the moon, with the backdrop of the space race between RUSSIA and USA.

        However saying all this i do belive in some way or another unicron will be draged into this movie(either be it the’war’ is dragged back to cybertron) or in the future in later film. :)

        • ähm okaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy you shut up :)

  3. Should it matter if he messes up if its last the Transformers film? I wonder if Bay even thought about having Omega Supreme in the film since it seems to be about a space race etc.

  4. Doesn’t matter what I read on here til ScreenRant post a review…. A review saying that it is good. Otherwise I won’t be seeing this one at all. I;m not going to let the hype get to me. Only good reviews from real people will make me consider this film.

  5. So we will finally get to go to the moon for real this time…….. :D

    • No, you dont, it is just a moon made using CGI.

  6. But they faked the moon landing :) haha

  7. So that IS the official title….oh brother.

  8. Considering the last film, this one could give new meaning to the concept that “The moon is made of cheeze…”

  9. did u mean the dark side of the moon?

    as for the cold war thing and how sam is going to help them out, when the cold war ended along time ago? do they go back in time in this one? either they do, or bay has no idea what hes doing…

  11. Hmm sounds interesting , but they couldn’t really call it dark side of the moon without paying royalties to pink cloud I don’t think ha ha

    But I really hope bays learned a few lessons from fallen, like less crappy human storylines and more bot drama and if ur gonna have a team of autobots/decepticons that merge into another I wanna see the robots transform then merge like the cartoon, and into a giant bot not some dog like thing with nuts,

    • His name was ravage and was originally one of Soundwave’s tapes on the original show.

  12. Sam should go into space and do a moonwalk, until his lungs explode.
    I guess after this trilogy, the studios are gonna push for a reboot like Spiderman. New Actors, new robots…

    • I don know how unicron would fit in if he’s at cybertron I think spelled that wrong but any way I takes a long to to get from. Crberton my spelling is horrible so contineing unicron just does not fit so I guess well find out when the movie comes out srry for the spelling guys ;) ;) ;( ;)

  13. It’s official THIS MOVIE IS GOING TO SUCK!!!!!! Thanks Mr. Bays for destroying the Transformers movie franchise( Thank god for the 1986 really movie is the Best!!!!!!!)

  14. I think Bay is planning on having Omega supreme in the film but renaming him “the Great Space Coaster” with theme song in tow,sung by Wierd al Yankovic.

  15. Maybe Skylynx will be in this one. lol

  16. “Star Wars” and “Transformers” are much alike. They were both created to entertain children and young teens. If “Transformers” takes on a kiddies atmosphere, I understand that it is not being made for my age group. Sure, it will be fun to watch them in a theater, but I don’t take these 80s cartoon franchises seriously.

    If you are an adult between the ages of 20 and 35, don’t expect these movies to do much on an intellectual level. It is all about entertaining a new generation of kids.

  17. The bot in the moon is Alpha Trion which will explain why both sides are racing for the moon. He is the founder of the autobots and would most likely hold the key to their destruction. Soundwave can’t be the main villain as long as Megatron is in it. If Unicron is in the movie he will not be Earths moon (don’t think M.Bay is that stupid) since without the Moon the Earth would be destroyed. Maybe as a Moon of Cybertron tho. The addition of Carly and Fairborne show that Bay is going to use some story from the Gen 1 series so I have a little hope for this flick!

  18. why does that bot dude look like zeus?did he transform into an idol of him when he visited earth?

  19. They effed up from the first one! I want Hotshot, not Bee.

  20. What ever happens just seeing the trailer I think the film will be awesome the others were mint

  21. I like the idea of Carly being the film, but why use a young attractive model? Honestly i would of gone with a girl who would look more down to earth as the character is. Thats’s just my opinion.
