With the approaching release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, images from the film are starting to get out into the wild. It seems like there are certain requirements for any Transformers stills that don’t feature robots: they’ve got to have explosions, Shia LaBeouf running, or characters appearing to cautiously move through a location. And now we’ve got an image to cover each one of those bases for the third film. Check ’em out after the break. And, sorry, no robots. Read More »
As expected, Kevin Dunn and Julie White have officially signed on to reprise their roles as Ron and Judy Witwicky, the parents of Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) in Michael Bay’s Transformers 3.

A couple new Transformers 2 updates. First up, Megan Fox tells MTV that Transformers sequel will be ten times bigger and talks about the rewrites created by the writers strike.
“As big as the first movie was, this is 10 times as big, 10 times as many set pieces, explosions, and acrobatic stunts,” Fox told MTV. “You know, we’ve been having script meetings, and we’ve been reworking the script, because they wrote it fast because of the writer’s strike. And, we’ve just been going through and trying to do some character stuff for Shia and myself in the middle of this crazy world that they’re in. I can tell you that we’re on locations in some really exotic places. It’s just going to be a badass movie. It’s just going to be a popcorn-visual-spectacle, summer film.”
