I’m not afraid to admit it, I enjoyed the first Tranformers movie. I can’t stand Michael Bay or his over use of explosions, but the first Tranformers movie was a fun ride. Now, just because I enjoyed the first movie didn’t mean I would be first in line to see the second one. In fact, I still haven’t even seen Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen after seeing the trailer for it because it looked like a typical Michael Bay movie on steroids. (The fact that it won a Razzie for Worst Picture AND Worst Director of 2010 didn’t help its case either.)
Keeping this mind, I am flabbergasted to say that I am actually looking forward to the next installment in the Tranformers franchise. I’ve included the reveal trailer after the break, but it looks different than the other films (especially Revenge of the Fallen.) I know it’s just astronauts on the moon looking through some wreckage, but that’s it exactly, it’s astronauts on the moon looking through some wreckage! There’s no Michael Bay explosions! Take a look at the trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.
Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on July 1, the third installment stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Kevin Dunn, Julie White, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Patrick Dempsey, Alan Tudyk and John Turturro.
That’s Alpha Trion at the end of the trailer, right? The color scheme makes it look like Unicron.
