Transformers 3 Coming July of . . . Some Year


Transformers fans were all a-flutter earlier this week with the news that Paramount has set the date for the third movie: July 1, 2011. Though neither Shia LaBeouf nor director Michael Bay was confirmed for the third movie (and there's still no writer), apparently "Paramount insiders . . . said the studio wanted to claim the date before a competitor did, considering that the 2011 summer release calendar is filling up."

But if you ask Michael Bay, there's no need to worry about 2011 competition — Transformers 3 won't be ready by then! Bay has responded to the release date news with the following:

Wait a minute! I said I was taking off a year from Transformers. Paramount made a mistake in dating Transformers 3 — they asked me on the phone — I said yes to July 4 — but for 2012 — whoops! Not 2011!!! That would mean I would have to start prep in September. No way. My brain needs a break from fighting robots.

There's something a little bit satisfying about Michael Bay getting somewhat punked by his own studio. But I digress. It's probably best for Transformers 3 to avoid the Summer of 2011, as Thor, The First Avenger: Captain America, and Spider-Man 4 are all scheduled to release then. And for now we still have to get through the second Transformers movie, opening this June 26, which many of you are totally stoked to see.

in a post yesterday about Megan Fox they said 2012 - so i'm confused by this too. i can totally understand how Bay would want to take a break and do something different, but the flip side is that then people may lose interest in the franchise briefly (yes i know that we're talking about transformers so it's not likely)
