Transformers 3 trailer online

Prepare for plot!

Transformers 3

The first trailer for Michael Bay’s 3D threequel Transformers: Dark Of The Moon has gone online.

And, well, it’s actually not that bad. In fact, it's a little bit good.

After the disastrously overbloated Transformers 2, it looks like director Bay might make good on his promise to get back to a decent story with this third, and possibly final, robotic smash-up.

This new trailer gifts Transformers 3 with a context and a basic plot, cleverly tying real history in with a story about, yuhuh, big, giant robots.

Check out the trailer below…

So, no sign of any of the main cast, no giant scraps, no rapturous explosions. Just slow, teasing, dread-building images that set up TF3’s basic premise.

Michael Bay definitely seems to be making a point with his first trailer, scrapping basically everything we know about Transformers and instead pairing slick visuals with an intriguingly nifty concept.

Transformers 3 just upped the stakes – and boy are we ready for whatever Bay’s got in store.

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
opens on 1 July, 2011.

      perhaps the entire film should be exempt from the main cast? i might go see it then.

      Let's face it, the first two were c**p and this will probably follow suit.... Enjoyable c**p to a degree

      Maybe instead of unicron being planet sized he could be a planet conqueror?

      Personally, I'm thinking that the mystery Robot could possibly be Alpha Trion. But the close up of the eyes and the mechanism inside was too menacing. So I'm having doubts with my own theory.

      nacho unicron did consume cybertrons two moons, so planet conqueror could work

      For me Michael Bay can't do annything right, he's just such a arrogant fellow, and , for me, one of the worst directors ever.

      First one was good second was an absoulute mess. Takes the pee when two months after the second one came out the actors and director say, yeah maybe it was a load of c**p. Well thanks for telling me two months to late. High hopes for this. Think I'll wait two months after it's out just to make sure I ain't being screwed out of my cash again, which we all probably will be.
