This week has been an excellent week for trailers, and Paramount finished it off in spectacular fashion by unveiling a brand new trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Director Michael Bay has been pretty honest about the failures of Revenge of the Fallen and, while this trailer is still big on robots and big on action, I have a feeling it will be an improvement.
Watch the trailer below:
Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and John Turturro will be back for the third outing, with Peter Cullen returning as the voice of Optimus Prime and Hugo Weaving returning as the voice of Megatron. Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will be replacing Megan Fox as the female lead, playing Sam Witwicky’s new love interest Carly.
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. LaBeouf, who admitted he wasn’t impressed with the second film, said “there’s going to be a lot of death, human death. This time, they’re targeting humans,” and says “It’s going to be the craziest action movie ever made, or we failed.”
