Transformers: Dark of the Moon

(2011)

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.

Will ‘Transformers 4’ Include Grimlock and the Dinobots?

Will ‘Transformers 4’ Include Grimlock and the Dinobots?

We already know that director Michael Bay is revamping the franchise with Transformers 4, bringing in a whole new cast including Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, and Bingbing Li. 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.

‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ Tops Blu-ray and DVD Sales Charts

Michael Bay's 3D sequel Transformers: Dark of the Moon destroyed its competition on the Blu-ray and DVD shelves in its first few days of release. It made a clean sweep topping the Blu-ray sales charts, DVD sales charts, and DVD rental charts, for the week ending October 2.

The home video sweep is even more impressive since Transformers: Dark of the Moon was released on September 30, a Friday, as opposed to the normal Tuesday release. Basically, it sold more units in three days than any other title amassed in the full week. The new release surpassed Bridesmaids, last week's top seller, which dropped to second place in Blu-ray and DVD sales. Transformers: Dark of the Moon knocked last week's top rental, Thor, down to second place.
