Marc Bernardin sifts through the best, or at least most interesting, of this week’s DVD and Blu-ray releases, including Nicholas Winding Refn’s Drive, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Star Trek: The Next Generation – Next Level and Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody.
Last weekend’s most successful movie in American theaters? Real Steel. Transformers: Dark of the Moon now the fourth most successful movie of all time? There’s only one thing we can take from these seemingly-freak occurrences: America loves robots. Maybe the movie industry should capitalize on this newfound fad.

If rumors – not to mention anonymous sources talking to various industry news sites, which should probably cast some doubt on the veracity of the rumors right there – are to be believed, the real reason that Paramount moved the release date of the new Transformers movie is because it’s just so damn good that the world deserves to see it a few days early. The only problem is, after the mess that was the last Transformers movie, will audiences believe that, even if it is the truth?
Paramount Pictures has released the third trailer — and the first in 3D — for the final installment of Michael Bay’s action franchise. Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which opens on June 29, stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Josh Duhamel.
The studio will premiere the third and final installment of Michael Bay’s action franchise two days early, on June 29 instead of July 1. Paramount also released a second clip from the movie featuring Josh Duhamel as Major Lennox.
