Monday 23 May 2011 00:00

Another new trailer for the sci-fi action film Transformers: Dark of the Moon was released May 19 online in 2D - and it can also be viewed in 3D.

Slide an iPhone or iPad Touch into the My 3D device from Hasbro to view the trailer in 3D after downloading a free app. The goggles are a US$35 stereoscopic viewer and can also be used for motion sensitive games and viewing 360-degree virtual worlds.

The latest trailer for the third sequel in the ‘Transformers' franchise opens with US astronauts discovering Cybertronian on the moon, a secret kept from even the Autobots who learn about the crashed spacecraft lying on the moon.

The Decepticons emerge and reanimate, proceeding to destroy Chicago in a battle with the Optimus crew but the Transformers alone may not be able to save the Earth.

This final chapter in the story, Transformers 3, is directed by Michael Bay. Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson return in Dark of Moon, which also brings on John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, Patrick Dempsey, model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, plus the voices of Hugo Weaving and Leonard Nimoy.

The film hits theaters on June 29 - moved up three days to the Wednesday before the Fourth of July US holiday weekend, and to coincide with the worldwide release. Some international markets will remain with the original July 1 date and Japan debuts the film on July 29.
