    From michaelbay.com:

    The director of the first two films posted official word of a third installment of the franchise on his website recently.

    According to Mr. Bay,the film should be in theaters July 1,2011.

    He also posted a P.S. note to Megan Fox on his blog,along with the announcement of the film. :sure:

    Wow...you know the funny thing is, a lot of people like his movies. I am not going to count the days but I am sure I will see it when it comes out.

    Michael Bay himself is indeed a piece of work....but like many creative people...has a big ego and also great talent....a rocky combination. :D

    On standby to get #2 on Blu Ray when it comes out soon....

    Wondering how he could possibly top what he's done in #1 and #2, in terms of either plot and/or special effects. Those two are amazing.

    I never have a problem remembering that. I wouldn't hire him to direct a music video, much less a movie. I'd rather watch most commercials than a Michael Bay movie; they're often better done.

    You mean they like explosions, not they like any sort of meaningful stories, because that would mean plot holes as big as transformers.

    A chance to see Megan Fox regardless of the Director is fine by me. :p But I liked 1 and 2 so I would be happy to pay and watch 3.

    If I want plot, I'll watch Gone with the Wind, Casablanca or Old Yeller. If I want to see lots of action and stuff getting blown to bits (by giant robots), then a Bay film it is. :D

    Why not also bring on the reality shows, Jerry Springer, or any other non-intelligent show? Anyways I'm sure the majority of the jerry springer redneck crowd rushed to see a movie with balls, sex jokes, ethnic stereotypes, testicles, and oh yeah, explosions!

    Going to a movie just to see giant robots fight for an hour and big boobs is a highly bad to do things. Nicely done action scenes like the Die Hard movies is better then that. Hell, Mortal Kombat Annihilation and Street Fighter the movie kept my attention better.

    At this rate Uwe Boll will be making better films.

    Obviously you're priorities are in the wrong place. :lol:

    I guaranty you that if you watched Transformers 1 or 2 in my Home Theater on a 116" HD screen with 2650 watts of 7.1 surround....you'd get psyched too.
    :D

    +1. Feels like you are watching them actually fight 20 feet away.

    Bigger screens with better audio make even average action movies better. ;)

    Whether you like the story or not, a 100+ inch screen that you are 10-15 feet from will give you a whole new outlook on an action movie or any movie with so many moving parts and details. You can literally get lost watching something going on in the background of the picture that you never would have seen on a smaller screen or in a theater where you are so far away.

    Might be the same "dumb" movie, but seeing the details you missed before keeps me coming back.

    ...and many millions of others by the looks of things with the first 2 movies...

    They sold a ton of Blu Rays of the first movie, and Transformers 2 has been in the Amazon top 100 now for 76 days (prior to its release on 10/20) - currently sits at #5.

    I think much of the appeal of Transformers rests with those who played with them as toys. Those of us who paid for those toys over the years, not so much.
