LOVE them or hate them, the Trans­form­ers have taken over the big screen and the box of­fice.

AC­TION: A scene from the new Dark of the Moon movie. The first film, re­leased in 2007, was the world’s high­est gross­ing non-se­quel movie of the year and a re­sound­ing hit with crit­ics. The se­quel, Re­venge Of The Fallen, was shown two years later and, de­spite mas­sively neg­a­tive re­views, be­came the sec­ond most suc­cess­ful film of the year, beaten only by Avatar. Hopes are clearly rid­ing high for the third in­stal­ment, Dark

Of The Moon, with Michael Bay again at the helm and Steven Spiel­berg as co-pro­ducer. Teaser trail­ers, which boasted of record down­loads within 24 hours, show footage of ro­bots caus­ing chaos on earth but re­veal lit­tle more. Along with ac­tion-packed ad­ven­tures fea­tur­ing those gi­gan­tic crea­tures, with a few new­com­ers – and this time in glo­ri­ous 3D – there’s sure to be plenty of thrills, spills and ex­plo­sions thrown in for good mea­sure. And the film’s star Shia LaBeouf, repris­ing his role as Sam Witwicky, was far out of the three,” he said. “The third one is darker and it has the ac­tion you have in the first two films but this time it’s even bet­ter. I can’t tell you more be­cause that would spoil it for the au­di­ence, but be­lieve me it’s in­cred­i­ble.” What we do know is that the De­cep­ti­cons and the Au­to­bots battle each other, with hu­mans caught in the mid­dle, as both try to dis­cover se­crets from a Cy­bertro­n­ian space­craft that had been found on the moon in the 1960s. Join­ing LaBeouf on the adrenalin-fu­elled jour­ney is Devon-born model Rosie Hunt­ing­ton-Whiteley, who steps into the sexy shoes pre­vi­ously filled by Me­gan Fox as Sam’s girl­friend, Carly.
