The Transformers are Back, and they're gearing to fight

More Michael Bay-sized explosions are promised in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the third installment of the popular franchise. The movie takes the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing as its jumping off point for another interstellar war. After shooting her mouth off to the press, Megan Fox was replaced by Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as Shia LaBeouf's love interest. Leonard Nimoy (who is clearly having a hard time adhering to his retirement from sho-biz) voices Sentinel Prime, an alien object on the moon, while the star-studded cast also includes Josh Duhamel, John Turturro, John Malkovich and Frances McDormand. Parts of the film were filmed in D.C. -- remember the day Bumblebee got hit by a car? -- so it'll be fun to see what monuments they demolish. (Fingers crossed for Boehner's office.) Opens Friday, July 1. Area theaters. Visit
