Dark of the Moon, the third installment of the Transformers motion picture series, is full of attention-grabbing action, with magnificent special effects that show major improvements on the previous two films. And despite a plot with logic gaps and other wanting elements, the consequence is a fun romp. Hey, it’s a popcorn movie after all!
Dark of the Moon picks up where Revenge of the Fallen left off. Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) has moved on in life – now graduated from university, he lives with new girlfriend Carly Spencer (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) while looking for his first major job. Despite the progress forward, he suffers an inner turmoil after having been central to the trials of the battles between the Autobots and Decepticons, feeling that his future is substandard and matters less than his efforts fighting the good fight with allies Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) and Bumblebee.
Michael Bay will put the cast of the first three Transformers films behind him and pave a new future for the franchise by casting fresh faces for Transformers 4. With all the cast confirmed not to return for a fourth appearance, Bay started off by casting his Pain & Gain star Mark Wahlberg as the lead. No details have been provided about the character, but Bay took the time to talk to TMZ about when the film will take place, the character, and a new release date.
The director told the gossip site that Transformers 4 will take place four years after the events of Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
