Posted on Mar 17, 2009

Nelson here, according to Variety Tranformers 3 gets a release date of 2011:

Paramount and DreamWorks are forging ahead with “Transformers 3,” dating the movie for release on July 1, 2011.

But Michael just posted this on the forums:

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 4 – 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. — Michael

Okay cat is out of the bag. Megatron is back —- but you will only get to see him from the long lost past. We go way back in time as this movie explains the mythology of the Primes. He is not a tank like everyone suggests, but an alien vehicle. But sadly he does not have much screen time.
