Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen - click above for high-res gallery

We may have found this summer's blockbuster, Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen to be heavy on the sizzle and lean on the meat, but that doesn't mean we've written off the series – after all, it's hard to dismiss excellent CG work, the childhood toys of our youth... to say nothing of that siren Megan Fox.

Thankfully, director Michael Bay informs us via his official website that the next installment is already in the works, and it's been assigned a release date – July 1 of 2011. That's a long time from now, granted, but Bay intimates in his blog post that Megan Fox has already signed on for the TF3 project, and hopefully Shia LaBeouf will make the scene too. Bay is already meeting with Hasbro to discuss new characters, so we'd expect a few new transforming automobiles to show up as well.

Here's hoping that they have enough time to craft a script that lives up to the special effects.

      I'm tired of Megan Fox and her toe thumbs. Lets get a new hotty. Also when is Hollywoodgoing to learn how to meke a movie in a year rather than two? This way we can have more episodes and the cast doesn't get too geriatric by the final film. Look at Harry Potter, those kids are ready to have kids of their own and are walking around with 5'oclock shadows.

      If Bay has someone else write the script and it actually has a decent (have to start somewhere) story I may see it and watch it at night instead of a 2pm Matinee. Bay should realize via movies like Ironman and Spiderman you can have a decent story and still have your special effect PLUS keep try to the origin of the characters.

      Wouldn't July 4th be more appropriate?
        • 5 Years Ago
        July 1 is a Friday. July 4 is a Monday.

      Although Transformers2 was a financial success, it was one of the WORST movies of the summer. The movie was one giant GM commercial. The "human" acting was pathetic and the "robots" acted like humans. I won't even talk about the story/plot, action scenes, the lack of dialog between the "robots", no Ultra Magnus, no Dinobots, no Rodimus etc etc etc etc. This movie left me so angry that it was a good thing I didn't bring my friend LOUISVILLE to the movie, I would have reduced the projector to tiny little pieces. Next time I will pay more attention the movie critics.

      This is why we recycle kids, garbage stays around a lot longer than you'd wish it to.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Well, Bay recycled props, ideas, and locations from the first movie for the second, so he's doing his part ;)

        And for him to sign up for a third outing on an even tighter timeline than the last two, they must have recycled his check and just added a zero.

        Maybe #3 will just be unused footage shot for the first 2 -- I think Bay shot over two hundred hours of footage for the first one alone. "Shoot for the edit" indeed. Now if only he'd hire script doctors to proofread for the plot...

        Bay's Transformers is for simpletons like yourself
      • 5 Years Ago
      Oh Boy...
        • 5 Years Ago
        So will this movie be called "Revenge of the Saturns"?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Isn't it cheaper to rent some Lambo's, Ferraris, Bugattis and have Megan Fox wash them in a bikini.
      • 5 Years Ago
      The lack of actual car action in TF1 made me ignore TF2; and I think I'll stick to that...
      Plus I'm kinda old for ***ing-off due hot chick in the movie/theatre.
