Transformers 3 Title and Shia LaBeouf Calls it Quits

“Transformers 3: The Dark Of The Moon” is apparently the official title for Michael Bay’s “Transformers 3″. That’s according to the boys over at Seibertron, who discovered three movie tie-in novels currently being offered by Amazon.com, each one with “Dark Side of the Moon” as part of their title. That’s, um, sorta evidence, right?

The title does make sense, since we already know that the moon will figure into the third film (for more SPOILER INFO on that read here).

In other “Transformers 3″ news, Shia LaBeouf, who returns for his third outing as Sam Witwicky, makes some bold proclamations about the third film being the best one yet. He also declares it will be his last “Transformers” movie. He tells MTV:

This is, and I’m not just BS-ing you, it’s the best movie we’ve made of the three by far. The script is the best script we’ve had. The second movie, we were in the middle of a writers’ strike, writing on the go. The first movie, we had the discovery, and this movie really is the fruition of the rhythm we’ve created out of five years working together. I’m super proud of this movie…

There’s no more for me, at least. I’m never going to do it again. This is the last one, so it’s balls-out. This is the best movie we’ve made, period, and that’s a unanimous decision by everybody. The sizzle reel that [Bay] has been showing everybody on set, it’s so outrageous. I’m very, very, very, very proud of it.

As you’ll recall, LaBeouf famously apologized for “Transformers 2″, which many people did not like. I though it was just fine, and did what it was supposed to do, but apparently lots of people out there really expected more from a sequel about giant fighting robots from outer space. Go figure.

      Damn Straight!! As long as they give us some actual characters and not cannon fodder I’ll be happy. The introducing bots and doing noting with them thing has to stop. They intro’d Sideswipe, made him cool with the swords and wheeled feet and then concentrated on the twins? Well that was stupid.

      I think the title is fine, It’s better then having a title beginning with Revenge which many movies have had.

    The IMAX scenes (forest fight and Devastator scenes) on the Walmart “Big Screen Edition” of “Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen” are breath-taking in 1080p. I thought the film did what it was suppose to do: media hype and soaring box office results. The female “terminator” transformer scene was a little cheesy and too much like the T-X from “Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines”; even though the scene delivered. I had no problem with the film even with the terrible stereotypes.

    I loved revenge of the fallen. I wish they would bringk warpath, air raid, and silve bolt though. But i loved sideswipe, and maybe they should make iron hide as kool as bumblebee (he’s way kooler than bumblebee).

      See thats what I’m talking about. They introduced Sideswipe and did nothing with him. I’d love Warpath but he HAS to say make sounds when he fires. Baaam!! And Pow!!!
