The children's toy gone big screen, 'Transformers 3' is set to be released July 1, 2011, ahead of director Michael Bay's projected release date.
Numerous leaks have come out concerning the third and final installment of the financially successful Transformers series. The first is that the final movie will be released on July 1, 2011 and director Michael Bay thought it would be released in 2012, not 2011.
Bay was quoted as saying, "I said I was taking off a year from Transformers. Paramount made a mistake in dating Transformers 3—they asked me on the phone—I said yes to July 1—but for 2012—whoops! Not 2011! That would mean I would have to start prep in September. No way. My brain needs a break from fighting robots."
Filming has begun in Indiana, as well as Chicago where they will use the Michigan Avenue bridge, LaSalle Street, and scenes from around the Sears Tower. The July 1, 2011 release date is currently set for IMAX theatres first.
Still, one of the biggest surprises has been the leak of the opening scene itself. This is a bit of a spoiler so if you are just dying to see it in the movie theatre stop reading here.
That said the website "WorstPreviews.com" is reporting that the opening seen takes place on the moon and there is a disturbance in which we see that it is a robot. Then it flashes to the White House with men running down the halls towards the Oval Office. Upon entering the Oval Office the President is sitting with his back to the door looking out the windows and when he turns around the it John F. Kennedy. That leads views into the understanding that the United States knew about these robots back in the 1960's as there was a speed race to get to the moon, not just between the United States and Soviet Union but also being in a third party the Transformers. According to "WorstPreviews.com" Steven Spielberg himself revealed this opening set-up.
