Are you going to see Transformers 3? Of course you are! If all you care about is watching Michael Bay blow stuff up real good and getting a glimpse of the new Megan Fox (you know, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), read on. But if you want every moment to come as a complete surprise, think twice before continuing on to find what we found out about the movie's opening scene.

Since you're still here, that means you're not going to blame us if we spoil something for you, right?

According to Devin Faraci over at Chud, Transformers 3 will start off with a a robotic disturbance on the moon that's picked up by Earth scientists, who alert the government. The news makes it way to the White House, where men in black suits rush through the halls, burst into the Oval Office and tell the president (whose back is to the camera), "Sir, something's happened on the moon!"

The president turns around and (OK, here comes the spoiler)—

It's John F. Kennedy.

That's right. Transformers 3 won't begin in modern times, but rather back in 1961 or 1962, and deal with the Transformers' involvement in the space race, and why JFK was so insistent that the U.S. make it to the moon first.

If you've read this far, what do you think of the new direction for the Transformers franchise? Does it seem like a fun way to go?
