Transformers Dark of The Moon Premieres In New York

New York is filled with Transformers carnival as on June 28, 2011, the city celebrates “Transformers” Day in New York City, as announced at Tuesday night’s red-carpet premiere of “Dark of the Moon,” the third installment in Michael Bay’s robot-mayhem, record-obliterating blockbuster trilogy.

On one hand, it was an event packed with more excitement and enthusiasm than a downtown Chicago brawl between Optimus Prime and his Decepticon rivals. On the other, it was bittersweet.

“It feels like graduation day, you know?” Shia LaBeouf told MTV News about his feelings on the night of the premiere. “I never went to college. I spent all of my college years on the set. This is my graduation. I wish I could have worn one of those funny hats, dude.”

But even LaBeouf was able to make light of the situation. Asked what he’d wear underneath his graduation gown, he laughed: “Nothing. A unitard. A leopard unitard and a graduation hat.”


For Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the Victoria’s Secret model making her acting debut and replacing former leading lady Megan Fox in the process, this was the crowning achievement of an already-breathtaking experience.

“It’s blowing my mind to be here right now,” she said of the premiere, which took place in a packed stretch of New York’s famous Times Square. “I’ll never, ever forget the last couple of weeks. It’s been a dream come true. You see all of your hard work paying off. Look at all of these amazing people that [came out to] support this movie. It’s really humbling.”
