Michael Bay’s third Transformers film is underway, and entitled Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Shia LaBeouf once again reprises his starring role as Sam Witwicky. Returning cast members are Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro, and Ramon Rodriguez. Peter Cullen returns as the voice of Optimus Prime, with Hugo Weaving again voicing Megatron. Newcomer Rosie Huntington-Whiteley joins the cast as Sam’s love interest Carly.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon will be in 3D, utilizing the 3D cameras used in Avatar. Hopefully this means the action shots will pull back so the viewer can clearly see what’s going on.

The teaser trailer came out today; and it’s speculation that the transformer displayed in it is Alpha Trion, one of the original thirteen transformers.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon opens July 1, 2011.
