Transformers: Dark of the Moon – Superbowl Trailer teases fans once again

Previews Pop Culture News Movies

Anyone familiar with the’ Transformers’ series will undoubtedly be excited at the prospect of another full length feature to hit the cinemas. In late 2010, an official trailer for the next movie was released, and quickly circulated around the internet. On February 6th 2011, Paramount Pictures revealed to the world a short 30 second teaser trailer for the third instalment of the live action Transformers series, directed by Michael Bay. Delivered in the form of a short TV spot during the Superbowl, the people of the world were told: “On July 1st, Earth goes Dark.”

From what can be seen in the trailer, it looks as though the antagonist Decepticons have finally gotten their metallic rears in gear. After their last two butt-kickings at the hands of the Autobots, it appears that the Decepticons have chosen to launch an all-out invasion of Earth. Apparently the time for subtlety is over. With only a handful of Autobots stationed on Earth, will Optimus Prime be able to lead his troops against an entire Decepticon army? And where did this Decepticon army come from?

How this ties in with the previous announcement trailer regarding the moon landing in 1969 is still up for speculation. Was the crashed ship a Deception sleeper cell holding the army Megatron needs to crush the humans? Or does it hold a secret the Autobots might use to once again save the day? And what of the humans? With Shia LaBeouf’s appearance in the trailer, will humanity yet again play a role in the War of Cybertron? Will Bumblebee ever get his voice unit fixed? Of course, there’s only one way to answer these questions for yourselves.

Regardless of whether you are a fan of the Transformers or not, this film is likely to be one of the must-see films this year for any action genre junkie. Previous instalments have always boasted fantastic visual effects, engaging soundtracks, and as always, a storyline that has more than meets the eye. From the teasers we’ve been given, its looks like the third movie will be of a very similar calibre. Transformers: Dark of the Moon will hit cinemas on July 1st this year in 3D, so prepare to once again see the Autobots and Decepticons clash in a battle that will determine the fate of two worlds. One shall stand, one shall fall.

    I fell asleep halfway through the first transformers movie.
    My friends that are big Transformers fans really hate the movies. Not trough enough to the original series for them I guess.

    There are rumors that Megan Fox gets killed off in the beginning. So that might be cool at least. XD

      not sure if she gets killed off but she’s definitely not in the movie and they’re bring in a new love interest. always seem wrong to say that in what is essentially an action movie. :p

  • HAHAHAHAHA I’d go and watch it too to see Megan get killed off !! 🙂 haha

    • Cellophane Girl

      We are all hoping that she just gets “accidentally” stepped on by Prime. 😉

      • v8hilux

        lol that would be hilarious, i did like that in the first movie when they were treading all over the garden. it should be a hi five moment with prime n she gets blasted into the atmosphere… my bad… you guys!!!

  • v8hilux

    the trailer looks pretty cool from what there is of it. always been some what of a transformers fan and think the movies have done it justice so far. though miss the tech us old humans got exposed too, bring back the transforer suits from the cartoon!!

    I do not know about you, but I wanted the decepticons to win and take over. If I wanted to watch a movie with humans I would watch any other movie. I also wanted Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox to die since the first movies. I do not want either of them to have dramatic deaths either it should be they both died from radiation+ a bomb exploding on them. In actuality she should die from a pot falling on her head and a piano falling and making him dead.

    • Cellophane Girl

      Bumblebee should just transform back into a robot from a car with both of them in it.

      Squishing them and making bumblebee the hero of the day. 🙂

    • v8hilux

      they never let the bad guys win come on it’s hollywood after all :p

  • blakehu

    Well no film made from comics are as good as the original, but lets look it like an alternatív version 😛

    • Cellophane Girl

      Or video games, or books.
      Usually the live action movie of anything is worse than the original.
      Alternate versions are almost how you HAVE to look at them. Though sometimes when you are really attached to one version of something the other doesn’t really live up to expectations.

    • v8hilux

      thats mainly cause the directors, writers etc wana put their own twist on things where as most people love the origianl and don’t wana see it messed with.
