Shia LaBeouf stars with returning castmates Tyrese Gibson and Josh Duhamel, welcoming franchise newbies Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Patrick Dempsey.

According to insiders, the film's release date was moved from the Friday slot to a Wednesday opening to build excitement ahead of the weekend in hopes of boosting the all-important first-weekend box office numbers.

The third installment of Transformers was the first film in the series to be shot in 3-D, which Michael Bay claims was "fun" to work with, but "not easy."

A new trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon set to be released Friday.
