A few months back, a DH regular scooper came upon a German release schedule which had a third “Transformers” film slotted in for release in Germany on the week of June 29th 2011.
With a film this size, day-and-date international releases are almost mandatory which meant a US release would likely be penciled in for sometime between June 29th-July 3rd 2011. Yet at the time no other domestic or foreign schedule had locked in such a date.
Cut to today and Paramount has officially scheduled a third “Transformers” film to open on July 1st 2011 in the US, the only release currently set for the Independence Day Holiday weekend.
The first sequel, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” is set for wide release this June 24th.
