Fans of big dopey 3D action movies can prepare to get giddy, because new images have been released for Transformers: Dark Of The Moon and The Three Musketeers, offering up tantalizing stills of their drug of choice. The films of course come from two of Hollywood’s living legends of dumb entertainment: directors Michael Bay (Bad Boys II) and Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat). It’s unlikely that either of these movies will require any mental effort from their audiences, but it’s also very likely those audiences will be distracted by lots of flashing lights and pretty colors.

Hit the jump to thrill at the site of big CGI robots smashing things and pretty Hollywood actors fightin’ n’ posin’ in expensive period costumes. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, John Malkovich, Tyrese Gibson, Frances McDormand, Ken Jeong, Alan Tudyk, John Turturro, and a bunch of robots. The film opens in 3D on July 1st. The Three Musketeers stars Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Logan Lerman, Orlando Bloom, and Christoph Waltz and will be released in 3D on October 14th

Here’s the official synopsis for The Three Musketeers:

The hot-headed young D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) joins forces with three rogue Musketeers (Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson) in this reboot of Alexandre Dumas’ story. They must stop the evil Richlieu (Christoph Waltz) and face off with Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) and the treacherous Milady (Milla Jovovich). The action adventure is given a state of the art update in 3-D.

    Oh Phil, you’re a card.

    Anyone else think that picture from Transformers 3 looks like a giant dung beetle?

    Why do you sound so pretentious in this write up? You come off as a jealous tool who makes far less money than Bay, thinks he can do what Bay does better than Bay and just doesn’t have the jewels to stop making assumptions from behind a computer and start that career in filmmaking you’ve always wanted to do. Far as I’m concerned, unless you can do what Bay does (which according to you shouldn’t be too difficult) keep your mouth shut until after you see the movie otherwise you become less credible than an online journalist already is. Boom.

      … And you sound like a wanna-be movie critic who is pissed off that he works at Rally’s gas station.

      so it all evens out.

    “It’s unlikely that either of these movies will require any mental effort from their audiences”

    so that’s the definition of a good movie eh.
    I thought it was being entertained!

    In 20 years people may say the same about stand up comedy…won’t make it any more true

    Michael Bay should be Transformed, to make him stop doing movies.
