According (once again) to plot points discovered hiding in Amazon product descriptions, the next Transformers film will find the Autobots and Decepticons “involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia,” one that does not take place in the 1950s and '60s, when there actually was a space race between the U.S. and Russia, but rather in the here and now, where there are Shia LaBeoufs and Strokes T-shirts and all the other things that make the present so fucking awesome. But then, this “space race” will presumably concern the Dark Of The Moon promised by the title, which is the place on the moon where the world’s billionaires now own the secret moon bases founded by the Nazis way back in 1945. Duh, everyone knows that. Also, Shockwave will be in it. There, we think we’re just about done with Transformers updates now. [/Film]
