The Autobots Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide and Sideswipe led by Optimus Prime, are back in action, taking on the evil Decepticons, who are determined to avenge their defeat in 2009's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends. There's new characters too, including a new villain in the form of Shockwave, a longtime "Transformers" character who rules Cybertron while the Autobots and Decepticons battle it out on Earth.
If you thought sitting through the nearly three hour sequel Transformers: Dark of the Moon was rough, it was downright excruciating for star Shia LaBeouf. It's unclear if the actor had ever seen the movie until earlier this week. But it proved to be one of the most painful experiences for the young actor as he relived every single one of his films. Lets just say it was no Even Stevens movie. And some enterprising fans have captured the agonized facial expressions that LaBeouf dropped while trying to bare the weight of his final Transformers installment.
Shia LaBeouf is finally at home, resting up after a grueling three day movie marathon. In an act of artistic rebellion, the kid decided to watch every single one of his films, and he allowed the public to watch via a streaming video. You can re-watch HERE if you missed it. Things kicked off this past Tuesday. He greeted his full catalogue of work with varying degrees of acceptance. Some he seemed to love, some he seemed to tolerate. And then there was the occasional movie, like Transformers: Dark of the Moon, that had him groaning through his teeth. And at times, he had to cover his face in embarrassment.Read More

An unconfirmed rumor has surfaced that reveals potential spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
According to unidentified sources, the director plans on bringing back the Dinobots from the 1980s Transformers animated series, including Grimlock. The report also indicates that one of the main villains will be a character named Lockdown, who possesses a ship full of decommissioned Transformers, including the Dinobots, who are reactivated by Optimus Prime. Both Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will reportedly ride the Dinobots Grimlock and a Pterandon (possibly Swoop) into battle in Hong Kong, which falls in line with the news from last month that the sequel will be partially shot in China.Read More
