Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Say what you will about the last entry into the TRANSFORMERS film franchise, based solely around all of the footage we’ve seen from the upcoming third entry, DARK OF THE MOON, we are in for something quite different.

The latest trailer for the film has hit (via Apple) and while it should go without saying that for a film built around robots beating the hell out of each other, trailers should not be an issue, this one looks really quite shocking. The film sees the cast and crew return here, for one more battle between robots here on Earth, and this time, we are dealing with something on a much bigger scope, and on a level that sees director Michael Bay returning to what makes him his money. Explosions. Lots, and lots, and lots of explosions.

Personally, while it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, I do adore this trailer. I think the action looks amazingly shot and choreographed, particularly the moments involving Optimus Prime and Bumblebee near the end. Sure, we haven’t heard a peep out of Megan Fox replacement Rosie Huntington Whiteley, but then again, when you have a building being eaten by a robot, there are a few things you can forgive.

It may not be a franchise I give a damn about, but if you want to get my attention, this is how you do it.

Here's the synopsis:

"The Autobots, 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."
