Transformers 2 Has A Release Date

Mark down June 26, 2009 on your calendars as Paramount and DreamWorks have already announced the date as when they expect the sequel to this summer’s hit Transformers to land in theatres.

The first film starring Shia LaBeouf brought in almost $700 million worldwide and has given DreamWorks its first live-action franchise. Director Michael Bay is expected back to helm the sequel. If Bay is to return, many expect LaBeouf to come back as well.

Due to some tension mounting between Paramount and DreamWorks, the June 26 date is not set in stone, but it is what they are aiming for. If all the wrinkles can be ironed out and everything can be settled then that date is when the studios hope the Autobots and Decepticons can once again crash the big screen.
