So here’s one you won’t hear everyday, a children’s book titled Transformers 3: The Dark of the Moon popped up on Amazon this week and it apparently gives away the movie’s plot.
The books description reads as follows (Major Spoiler in the block quote):
“The Autobots Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide and Sideswipe led by Optimus Prime, are back in action, taking on the evil Decepticons, who are determined to avenge their defeat in 2009′s Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends. There’s new characters too, including a new villain in the form of Shockwave, a longtime “Transformers” character who rules Cybertron while the Autobots and Decepticons battle it out on Earth.”
I’m almost positive larger spoilers will come forward, but it’s kind of funny that a child’s pop up book is the first to come about. (Via /Film)

First it was an extra being injured on the set of Transformers 3 and today it’s a police officer who drove through the movie’s perimeter before colliding with one of the films stars….Bumblebee!
According to TMZ:
A nearby shop owner says was a lot of police activity in the area right at the time of the accident due to a bomb scare. It is unclear if the cop car involved in the accident was part of that investigation.

Gabriella Cedillo, The ‘Transformers 3‘ extra who was injured on the set of the movie is suing Paramount Pictures. Adolfo Romo, the victims brother, told RadarOnline.com that she is suing after becoming paralyzed on the left side of her body.
“We filed a case this morning in Chicago and made a request for a jury trial,” Todd A. Smith, the attorney for Cedillo told RadarOnline.com.
According to her attorney she is paralyzed on her left side, can’t speak and has partial loss of vision in her left eye. To prevent paralysis issues with her eye, doctors have chosen to sew it shut to keep the eye from drying out.
The lawsuit states that Cedillo is a “disabled person” because of the accident and that she “assumed no risk of injury in performing her duties as an extra on the Transformers 3 movie set.”

An “extra” on the set of Transformers 3 was injured and then promptly hospitalized in Indiana when a stunt went wrong during shooting earlier this week. The extra, Garbriela Cedillo is listed in critical condition.
According to PopCrunch:
Authorities in the Chicago suburb of Hammond, Indiana say the crew was filming scenes in Lake County late Wednesday using several vehicles and drivers when something went awry and an object went sailing through the windshield of one of the vehicles, striking the driver, Gabriela Cedillo, 24.
Cedillo is said to have suffered serious head injuries when she was hit during a stunt that included several vehicles. The car hit a barrier made of concrete and was then dragged for a short distance before coming to a stop.
“The cable between the two vehicles broke,” another extra told Chicago ABC affiliate WLS-TV while adding “It whipped around and sliced through the woman’s car and sliced through her skull, apparently.”
Our thoughts go out to Cedillo’s family.
