Transformers Live Action Movie Director - Michael Bay has confirmed the official release date for the next installment. In the Official Michael Bay Forum, the director posted a message to announce this wonderful news:

"Well its official: We have a great Transformers 3 story. The release date is now July 1st 2011. Not 2012.

Today is Day One. This morning started with an ILM meeting for five hours in San Francisco. Currently I'm flying with writer Ehren Kruger to Rhode Island to talk to Hasbro about new characters.

P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back. I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture. Please consult your Physician when working under my direction because some side effects can occur, such as mild dizziness, intense nausea, suicidal tendencies, depression, minor chest hair growth, random internal hemorrhaging and inability to sleep. As some directors may be hazardous to your health, please consult your Doctor to determine if this is right for you.

Pain and Gain is right after shooting of Trans 3.

Michael

Hmm... Interesting news. I hope they'll take some of the criticism on RotF to heart, but I'm still game; I mean, TF III can't really conceivably be any worse than RotF was !
His Megan Fox quips are actually pretty funny, though. Good luck to her, I'd say: Michael Bay will probably put in some EXTRA nasty parts for her (plot calling for her to be stuck in a vat full of toxic waste for entire movie, for example).

Interesting guess he didn't need as big of break for TF then originally suggested. Though it should be noted that he promised no harm to Megan during production from alien robots he made no such promise for her character however. :twisted:

I am going to keep my fingers crossed. Not ton of time has elapsed since the last film it makes me leery of the 'great' story they supposedly have.

Things I hope they do: (just my personal opinion take it or leave it)

1.You've proven concept the film will make a lot money. Push to have story that centers around Transformers and their interaction with humans, not the other way around. (After all it is called Transformers)

2.(As much as people want all their personal favorite characters involved..I still have to say this.) Limit the amount of new characters introduced, you are already drowning in them. Reduce the human character count and give that screen time to already introduced Transformer characters.

3.Megatron made some strides in this last film away from slobbering metal monster man who repeated his name way to much. Keep that up, and Keep him moving more toward the 'Lex luthrian' in style villain. Lex packing giant fusion cannons that is...

4. Keep the great effects but the fight scenes need better choreographing they to often lose the audience. While real combat is chaos. Chaos in filming general starts to put people off a movie if every fight scene is chaotic.

5. Please watch out for story continuity issues!

I'd consider it victory and much improved if any two of those above issues are addressed.

So while I am really dying for a new movie I am not sure this pushed up release date thrills me greatly.

Classy

Yup excited about this! Let's hope for no writer's strikes this time... Bay should keep his hands off the script and stick to what he knows best... action, explosions and making sure our giant alien robots get more screen time!! (Ok he does need to work on that last part). ;)

Looks like there's a new writer involved too?

Sounds promising!!

The good news I guess is that, after July 2011, we can hopefully leave Bay's interpretation of Transformers behind, and hope it hasn't poisoned the well for what is to come after.

Let the slaughter begin. God be with us all.

I like Michael Bay's movies. I like Transformers. I do not like Michael Bay helming Transformers, because he has NO respect for the mythology. But, I am happy to see that at least the Visual Style will remain the same, and our characters will most likely duke it out for keeps at the end. Maybe we'll even get to see Cybertron? Anyway, I just hope it's less vulgar than ROTF. And that Tuturro comes back. I'm excited.

First, I'm excited about the 3rd installment of the Transformers film franchise. I hope that the absence of a writers strike will make TF3 a better film all around.

Second, I have to admit that I was hoping for the 2012 date. I could use a year break from movie madness as the owner of this site. I'm getting married next year, which will be a crazy year and movie years are always nuts as well.

I've been inundated with movie madness now for 6 years. I could've used a year break. Here we go again ...

(Wonders if I should program a new countdown timer like I had for the first film)

Proving once again 'radix malorum est cupiditas' (greed is the root of all evil). Money seems to have overcome all of Mr Bay's previous qualms--he needed a break, he was tired of robots, he was waaaaay tired of Megan Fox (oh, aren't we all...though she'd better set the countdown clock on her 15 minutes of fame--I suspect she'll be way old news by 2011) and her, ummm, pleasant work demeanor.

Problem is this: ROTF which sucked, let's be honest, so bad it sucked things that have never been sucked before, made scads of money. The message? Suck = money. Incentive to do exactly what they did for ROTF, only moreso (cruder humor, bigger explosions, more fart jokes, more vomitrocious spinny cam), 100%. Incentive to change? Zero.

Classy's right in all she said--especially the maybe this time no plot holes? And maybe we could try to keep SOME continuity across the Bayverse movies?

Congrats on the upcoming wedding, Seibertron! It's always chaos, with or without movie madness. In time, you'll probably come to think of the movie insanity as a welcome distraction from the horrific panic-tron that is wedding planning.

HK, do NOT kill Starscream. (growl)

Like my dad tells me, the first movie is great, the second one not so much, and then the third brings back the AWESOME! But we'll see, while Optimus was awesome in Revenge of The Fallen, I was a bit disappointed in it. I'm hoping they'll make Starscream tough in TF3 like he was in the first, and I'm hoping that he might backstab Megatron too. :wink:

totally agree with the, no need for vulagarity. Thought it was completely pointless and humourless. ROTF definitely sucked....at first watch...I am going to give it another shot with a second viewing...hopefully soon. definitely need to bring back the awesome and focus on the TF's. Unfortunately, suck can equal money(was that hellkitty who said that?)...so you just never know if they will ever get it! :-?

Yeah, because G1 is the only Transformers story to exist ever. Let's just forget that Beast Wars, Beast Machines, RiD and the Unicron Trilogy, et all ever happened. Sarcasm for the uniniated.


I really hope he tries with this. Less of the crude humour would work wonders. The lad has enthusiasm, which could help. Clearly he cares about telling a movie story, he should, but strays aside from the main point.

But at least he gives it a go.

I love the fact that the first post of the first official TF3 movie thread said "it can't get any worse."

Of course it can. Bay is involved.

"Mikaela, we need you to put this suit on. You are going to be Binary-bonded to an Autobot who suffered severe cerebral damage."

I think I made my point and kept the thread out of the NSFW category.

I'm just as thrilled as anyone else about the release date, but MB is going to speak to Hasbro about new characters and i think Bay and hasbro needs to bring back some G1 characters and I'm sure everyone would agree. I know they can't fit or include every character we want to see on the big screen, but here are a few i just thought of:

Autobots: Dinobots, cliffjumper, even bring back Jazz, Wheeljack, mirage would be an awesome character to have, Hound, Blaster, Gears, powerglide.

Decepticons: Stunticons, More of soundwave, shockwave, skywarp, thundercracker, even the cone heads, maybe the combaticons, astrotrain and blitzwing would be really cool, cyclonus.


here are just a few i think Bay and hasbro can use in TF III

Gotta agree with you here, boss. I'm growing weary of the movie-verse, it would be nice to have a break. I was kind of tired of it after the first one, but ROTF renewed my enthusiasm shortly. I think maybe I'm just tired of all the overblown hype, countdowns to release dates, etc. Man, sucks when your favorite hobby is a worldwide hit, eh? :lol: Nah, I just want to see something different for awhile is all. Like Animated was, but maybe a little less short-lived.

Well, here's hoping number 3 turns out a little better. They could do without all the lowbrow humor, and a little more character development. And less throwaway characters with 30 second appearances. Maybe ditch Megan Fox too. :lol:

Posted by Convotron on October 1st, 2009 @ 3:11pm CDT
I agree with ClassyNX01's points. Point 4 especially because the one thing guaranteed is that there will be action scenes. Make the action part of the narrative, make each action scene mean something more to the story. I think Bay had good intent with the action in RotF, which was more of a "let's make it real and dirty" approach. Chaos and brutality were there as well as showing the "mortality" of characters. Well done action, however, can have elements of realism and dramatic exaggeration.

I'm going to be optimistic about TF3. I'd rather hope that it be good than predict that it'll be terrible. Even when the plot details come out, the final theatrical cut we see in theatres in 2011 is what I'm concerned with.

I wonder if they'll use any of my ideas... :lol:

But please, Bay, give the film a decent subtitle! I'm sick to death of these bloody 'of the' movies; where's the imagination? Half of the Star Wars saga is guilty of the cliche-crime ('Return of the Jedi', 'Attack of the Clones', 'Revenge of the Sith'), we had 'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines' and 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy must be the worst offending films (I know the books were written ages ago, but it, and the subtitles of the 1st and 3rd instalments, still add up)! Then we had 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'...oh yes, very original... (:|

OK, I have to say something because its becoming utterly ridiculous. Those of you who are holding Michael Bay utterly responsible for how bad you think the Transformers film franchise to be need to just shut up.

Point of fact, regardless of whether you like Michael Bay's directorial style or not ... his job is to take the script that the WRITERS have created, to take the concept art that ARTISTS have created and try to make it all work together. But the biggest thing that needs to be remembered is that everything has to meet HASBRO'S approval first and foremost, not the director's, not the producer's ... HASBRO owns the rights and licenses for anything and everything associated with the Transformers line.

The reason that there was so much crude humor and what not was because they're also aiming at a younger audience. I mean look at HALF the shows on Cartoon Network, they're loaded with fart jokes and utter stupidity and other nonsense because THATS the target audience they're aiming out. So that's why they threw in the bits and pieces here and there to entertain the kids that went to see it. I'm not saying that Transformers RofT was great, but it wasn't the worst thing thats come across the silver screen either. But yes, lets hope that TF III has more Transformers and less long-distance relationships that take near death experiences to say "I love you."

I *KNEW* it!

As soon as I heard 2012, it was pure bullcrap.

Geez. Can any one of them just get the story straight and stick with it?

And I for one am glad that 3's coming in 2 years, because I (and many others) will grow tired of waiting for the next part of the story to come along. And so on, and so on.

Not to mention, we'll fall in love with a line like Universe or Animated, or whatever's coming, and they'll pull the rug out from under us again. (And I say this as a Bayverse fan!)

I loved ROTF, I really did, but let's get this over with so we can get the speculation, rumors, an fandom polarizing out of the way.

I have to agree, I think waiting until 2012 instead of rushing to 2011 would have been a better idea. I know Paramount wants to strike while the iron is hot, but really, but seriously, between Star Trek and Transformers alone, you'd think even they'd need a break.

Okay, I think we should write an OFFICIAL Letter/forum DIRECTLY to them. I mean, seibertron's a pretty powerful source now ain't it? I know there's tons of what ifs and ideas and character lists, but we should make something that they could communicate with us Useful things, and not hate messages and stuff. Now's the time everything is getting set. It's the chance to speak up I think. Post some designs for Tidal wave, plot ideas that make sense and stuff, you know? I just don't want to see this series go down badly. If they had the tf fans at their disposal, then we'd get what we wanted. Especially since nothing is yet set in stone. The story could completely change like it did from the whole skorponok reviving Megatron and stuff.

So we know what this means. More T and A, d*ck and fart jokes, military love fests, robots with rendered testicles, and absolutely zero plot with hardly any focus on the Transformers which is ironic cuz these "films" are called Transformers. I think I'll wait til 3 is out on DVD before I suffer through more disappointment.

okay so heres how it is...
the bayverse is okay. its gathering a new fanbase.

great.

but really isnt it getting a little... well bad? the second movie was great, i saw it twice, and i liked the humor but the whole devastator balls crack was a bit too much.

anyway, bring back animated. well not exactly animated, cuz that story was great and epic and all and should be expanded but the haste that they closed the story in filled in too many unanswered questions to continue. get a series going thats animated, more... manly looking (cuz lets face it, as cool as animated was, the robots looked GAY), and keeps the robot-centered story that it had.

if that doesnt get announced soon... well you can count on ol Autobot 13 rolling out the fanfiction series. Expect the first installment... say first saturday in november? i think thats the seventh. if nothings announced i will publish a chapter a week on my Heavy metal war page. feel free to continue to comment with any story ideas or character ideas... i want this to be as fan-involved as possible. send me a personal message if you want.

cya guys later.

Wow, so many ridiculous bay haters. First of all, Michael Bay doesn't care what anyone thinks, it is all about the money, and he'll do whatever he wants to do. Most of the stuff that happens on the scene is directed by him. The rest; The script, the designs, they're approved by Bay, but they're made by generically everyone else. If you're hating on Bay, you're hating on every Transformer fan that's worked to design the 2007 Movie as well as Revenge of the Fallen.

I'm tired of hearing this disenchanted crap. If all you are doing is complaining, then just don't bother showing up here. It isn't going to change and being hopeful for a 'better' movie in 2011 is nonsense, because it's directed by the same person, it will be in the same dimensions!

Put G1 in? How about this. G1's dead. It died a good 20 years ago. Bringing it back into the live film is like redoing Star Wars. This is what it is, a Transformers Universe on it's own. If you think Bay's giving Transformers a bad name, then you clearly have a short sense of time and memory. Transformers has existed for over 25 years, we've had good series, some bad series, yet all in all it brings fans, new and old, together to celebrate something that they enjoy.

Bay doesn't acknowledge Transformers lore? What? There's rules now? Like honestly, when the hell did that happen? If there were to be any rules in Transformers, Bay has acknowledged them all. Transformers transform. They interact with humans. They come from Cybertron. There are Autobots and Decepticons and they fight each other. Bay's representation of Transformers is as genuine as Animated's representation of the characters or Energon's representation of the characters. It is what it is, T-R-A-N-S-F-O-R-M-E-R-S.

Hate isn't going to get anywhere here. Michael Bay is still making Transformers 3, he'll make hundreds of millons, and Transformers will continue on in series after series. The best that can be done for you haters is not seeing the movie, and leaving news like this for people who enjoy Bay's work.

I for one, look forward to Transformers 3. Every bit of the universe that revolves around the Live Movies is an exciting change compared to the 2D characters we've seen for the past decades.

Hate isn't going to get anywhere here. Michael Bay is still making Transformers 3, he'll make hundreds of millons, and Transformers will continue on in series after series. The best that can be done for you haters is not seeing the movie, and leaving news like this for people who enjoy Bay's work.

I for one, look forward to Transformers 3. Every bit of the universe that revolves around the Live Movies is an exciting change compared to the 2D characters we've seen for the past decades.


So, what your saying is that you're free to voice your opinion for the film franchise as long as it's blind, uncondition love for it. While everyone else with even the smallest shred of disappointment in the series needs to STFU and GTFO.

You sir are the supreme voice of fairness, aren't you? :roll:

nooooo..... Not the same pace as the first film. Egads that's a snore fest.

A mix between TF 1, and ROTF (which was a bit too fast in many a scene) would be perfect, in terms of pacing.

Fortunately, the jumpcuts that ruined the first film weren't present in the second, and I hope they remain out of the picture for the 3rd one. Blargh.

I thought Bay wanted a rest before starting TF 3 hence the 2012 release, he must be a glutton for pushing himself to the limit or something. Oh well as long Welker is back in TF 3 as Soundwave I don't care.

Most of the stuff that happens on the scene is directed by him. The rest; The script, the designs, they're approved by Bay, but they're made by generically everyone else. If you're hating on Bay, you're hating on every Transformer fan that's worked to design the 2007 Movie as well as Revenge of the Fallen.

I'm tired of hearing this disenchanted crap. If all you are doing is complaining, then just don't bother showing up here. It isn't going to change and being hopeful for a 'better' movie in 2011 is nonsense, because it's directed by the same person, it will be in the same dimensions!

Put G1 in? How about this. G1's dead. It died a good 20 years ago. Bringing it back into the live film is like redoing Star Wars. This is what it is, a Transformers Universe on it's own. If you think Bay's giving Transformers a bad name, then you clearly have a short sense of time and memory. Transformers has existed for over 25 years, we've had good series, some bad series, yet all in all it brings fans, new and old, together to celebrate something that they enjoy.

Bay doesn't acknowledge Transformers lore? What? There's rules now? Like honestly, when the hell did that happen? If there were to be any rules in Transformers, Bay has acknowledged them all. Transformers transform. They interact with humans. They come from Cybertron. There are Autobots and Decepticons and they fight each other. Bay's representation of Transformers is as genuine as Animated's representation of the characters or Energon's representation of the characters. It is what it is, T-R-A-N-S-F-O-R-M-E-R-S.

I am sooo quoting this.
I do agree, it's a different take but it's still Transformers. There are people who say Armada sucked and there are people say that it was one of the best TF series (I really enjoyed it).
Besides, if you "need" g1, get the dvd's?

I for one look forward to TF3 but this also means that I have to NOT visit this and any other transformers website for the coming 1,5 years since THERE ARE TO MANY BLOODY SPOILERS ALL THE FRIGGIN TIME WHICH I TOTALLY HATE!!!
Images on the news page with under it a small line that says "warning spoilers".
This time I don't want to get hyped over a "Totally Awesome Devastator" which in the movie gets slagged by 1 human weapon.

peace :wink:

I'm quite sure he was going to take that break. My guess is that Paramount offered him a lot of incentive to get the film out sooner. Whether it was the promise of more dough, offering to squash him like a bug (career wise), etc. We may never know. But we do know whatever it was, it worked.

7-1-2011, it is.
