(Updated from yesterday with more images after the jump)

It's finally time for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen to make some noise, and while all of us slowly awake from our holiday daze, Empire Magazine has released the first official images from the film, while USA Todayhas a report from the set. Above, in a photo from Empire, Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox dodge explosions during what has to be some sort of snazzy robot battle.

From USA Today: This time, the story finds Sam and Mikaela under attack by the evil Decepticons because of something Sam has learned about the origins of the Transformers and their ancient history on Earth. To acquire this knowledge, the invading Decepticons need to capture Sam instead of kill him. Meanwhile, the U.S. military and an international coalition has united with the good-guy Autobots to fight back the villains' attack. Some of the most important newcomers are in the robot cast: Decepticons Soundwave, a fearsome communications expert, and Devastator, whose arms and legs are built out of other Transformers. And on the Autobots' side is Jetfire, a villain whose age and broken-down physicality leads him to help the Autobots."

Check out two more images below (one after the jump), then head on over to Empire for larger versions. Directed, once again, by Michael Bay, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters on June 26th, 2009.
