There is new drama regarding the 3D format of Michael Bay’s third entry in the Transformers franchise, entitled Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Yet another movie website recently ran a post claiming that Bay is having trouble working with 3D and that Transformers 3 is suffering as a result.

Bay has yet again responded via his own platforms, and is still maintaining that Transformers 3 was shot in cutting-edge 3D and will look amazing onscreen…as we will soon be able to see for ourselves.

For those with long memories, this Transformers 3 3D issue has popped up and been swatted down about a handful of times since production on the film began. We here at Screen Rant even managed to incur the wrath of Bay for a story we ran on the matter.

By now it’s pointless to continue tossing out conspiracy theories – and more to the point, why argue about this 3D issue when we can judge the first footage from the film within the next couple of weeks?

While swatting down the latest naysayer claims, Michael Bay let this little hint slip about a Transformers: Dark of the Moon teaser trailer:

“…I will give full details of my process and why I liked 3D in the next week right before the Transformers announcement piece comes out on Tron and Narnia.”

For those who aren’t movie buffs eager to see the two films Michael Bay referred to: the next installment in Fox’s Narnia series, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, will be in theaters on December 10th, while Disney’s sci-fi sequel TRON: Legacy will be packing 3D theaters on December 17th. If the Transformers: Dark of the Moon teaser trailer is to be released alongside those two films, we should expect it to debut online (albeit in 2D) anytime within 10 – 14 days from now – at least by my estimation.

Check out the early synopsis for Dark of the Moon below:

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.

There will supposedly be a lot of reveals in the film about the intertwined histories of humans and the robots from Cybertron, with the usual big battles and massive explosions you expect from Michael Bay.

Ironically enough, due to all this controversy over the 3D format, what might’ve otherwise been viewed as another lackluster sequel in a so-so franchise is now going to be a lightning rod for scrutiny. Expect hardcore movie fans and Blogosphere reporters alike to put this film under a hi-res microscope – and don’t be surprised when somebody posts a shot-for-shot analysis of the 2D teaser trailer to determine the potential quality of the 3D (or lack thereof) in every frame.

Look for the Transformers 3 teaser trailer in front of The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader on December 10th and TRON: Legacy on December 17th.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon will be in (3D) theaters on July 1, 2011.

  1. What about a teaser for harry potter? It should be with one of these. I hope the transformers teaser looks good.

    • Not for a few more months I’d have thought Rick, also remember, there were several parts from the second film in the part one trailers.

    • @ Rick: The teaser for Transformers 2 looked good… But it didn´t help the movie though.

      • Well then i hope its with the green hornet.

  2. i find it very ironic that he has an explanation as to why he likes 3D after earlier saying that this technology was not ready for his style of filmmaking, to me it was his way of downplaying that AVATAR kicked his movie’s arse. while the transformers name brings in the audiences, megan fox will be missed and since the robots look less and less like the original cartoon and more of a LONG GM commercial, this is nothing to be
    exicted about… i have not seen any stills, but iam willing to bet that the entire trailer of optimus prime will appear after the fans have been complaining about this for a while, WATCH…

    • There were already set photos released with optimus primes’ trailer.

    • There are some stills from thr set, and they do show Optimus with his trailer. Good call, dude. I am still not lookibg forward to this movie. Number 2 was the worst movie of all time..Maybe not, but I personally did enjoy it…

      • well the action sequences is what made the movie enjoyable, but i agree one of worst movies ever.. megatron having a boss was ridiculous, and iam tired of all of the transformers looking like insecticons.

  3. If I was making this movie based upon the original 80s version, I would change it to:

    “In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again Optimus Prime has to come to the aid of humanity.”

  4. I think it’s too soon for this and audiences could probably do with another year or two to fully erase memories of the 2nd film. I do like the fact it’s being shot in 3D and the concept of Transformers being shot this way should prove to be awesome on screen visually. However it could also work against the box office in the long run. I remember having severe headache at times from Revenge of the Fallen – partly due to the incoherent storytelling but also due to the frentic action which has hard to make out at times who was fighting who. This effect will be amplified even more in 3D and the film could recieve bad word of mouth because of it.

  5. We’ll probably just get A., a full 2 minutes of the stars names flashing across the screen, followed by their faces after their names probably looking up in horror, then we’ll get bumblebee in car form speeding down the road, optimus rolling around a corner in slo mo, then the release date, the insignia, the title, and mike bay’s name flashing across the screen. Or B., we will get mike blabbering on about 3D and how his movies are “AWESOME and Beautiful!!! Morons!”

  6. I was hoping that MAYBE Mr. Bay “got it” by the 3rd film, but it so far does NOT sound like it at all. “Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends.” ??? It should be the other way around, Bay!

    He still does not get it. The story is called “Transformers”, not “Annoying Humans and Alien Robots That Need Help.”

    Okay, the ‘bots have come to Earth. I get that. Humans are to be expected in some capacity. But the STORY, the SUBSTANCE, the FOCUS of the medium is SUPPOSED to be primarily about the alien robots.

    Oh well. Hollywood loves rebooting, so maybe the next incarnation will get it and not be riddled with ADHD.

  7. SPAM!

  8. this is gonna be awesome

  9. Awesome finally his Optimus Prime’s trailor is in the movie. I also hate the insecticon look of the Decepticons and also dont get why they ruined devistator. Or made Jazz a solstice and killed him off.

  10. They can release all the trailers they want for Transformers. They aint gettin my money.

  11. I wonder they’ll show premiere at 3rd December with release of Narnia in India. will they? the source says they’ll show the trailer with Narnia release at 10th December. According to their release date.
