Transformers Vault Dark of the Moon Description

The current edition of Transformers Vault book has provided a concise description of the upcoming Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie. The Vault book is a pictorial look at the history of Transformers and the various collectibles that have been made over the years around the franchise. Thanks to emptygalaxies here is the books description of the movie that he was able to transcribe from a picture he took of the page. Question marks denote that image was to blurry to determine the word.

Spoiler Warning (but not as nearly bad as adaptation info)
Shooting for the Moon

The third movie builds upon surprising connections in human and Cybertronian history. It turns out that the race to the moon launched by President Kennedy was prompted to investigate Transformer activity. Optimus Prime's predecessor, Sentinel Prime, had developed a dangerously powerful weapon. Rather than risk it falling into Decepticon hands, Sentinel fled the battlefield only to crash his ship, the Ark, into Earth's moon. In Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Optimus and the Autobots are briefed on this history by a firsthand witness -- Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin makes an appearance as himself in the movie.

The Decepticons and Autobots race to claim this lunar weapon, known as the Space Bridge, but a treacherous Sentinel Prime emerges alive, corrupted with visions of conquest. Optimus and Megatron must team up to defeat the ??????? before he can use the Bridge's powers of teleportation to transport Cybertron into Earth's orbit: the move would destroy Earth, releasing a massive wave of energy that Sentinel Prime plans to use to save Cybertron. The film's climax includes multiple battles with the largest cast of robot characters yet. Even Sam Witwicky acquits himself well in combat, as a shape-shifting ??????? built by the Autobots gives him some much-needed defensive firepower against the Decepticons.

The third Transformers feature -- shot and released in 3-D -- ends with an air of finality, and Michael Bay has stated it will be his last directorial effort in the franchise. The Transformers, however, will likely forge ahead in a medium that has proved so successful for them. What shape any future films may take, however, is anyone's guess.

  4. Im confused, why this new technology(Sentinel Prime's Spacebridge) why not use the All Spark? I understand it was jettisoned into space and crashed on earth. Just confused, another plot hole I guess.

  6. At the guy above me. Not really. He is bad but for good reasons. You'll find out when you see the movie.

  7. You might want to emphasise the spoiler warning a bit more...I found these quite big spoilers :/ I wish I hadn't looked now (I'm not having a go, I'm just saying...)

  8. In the original Transformers, the humans did have suits that were created by the auto bots to fight along side them so will Sam
