Transformers: Dark of the Moon Trailer

Optimus is back! Paramount has debuted the theatrical trailer on Apple for Michael Bay's Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the third and final movie in the epic sci-fi/action franchise based on Hasbro's toys. After teasing us with a glimpse at Transformers on the moon last year, Bay has finally unleashed a full-on two minute look at what we can expect and it looks awesome! Tons of action, gigantic robots (bigger than Devastator) and no Skids and Mudflap anywhere to be seen. Shia LaBeouf stars with supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and more, including John Malkovich and Patrick Dempsey. Turn up your volume!

Watch the full theatrical trailer for Michael Bay's Transformers: Dark of the Moon:

You can watch the Transformers: Dark of the Moon trailer in High Def on Apple

In this movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky must help his robot friends defeat enemies like Shockwave.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is again directed by everyone's favorite explosive director, Michael Bay, of the previous two Transformers movies as well as Bad Boys I and II, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and The Island. The screenplay was written by Ehren Kruger, who co-wrote the Revenge of the Fallen script but went solo this time, and also worked on The Ring, The Skeleton Key and Brothers Grimm screenplays. Paramount is bringing Transformers 3 to theaters everywhere in 3D starting July 1st. Bring on summer!

I'm preying this redeems Michael Bay for that piece of trash, Revenge of the Fallen. I already watched this trailer three times in HD and at the very least it will be orgasmic, visually, in Imax3D.

It definitely gave me goosebumps the first time through, maybe it was the music, but this may be the transformers movie we've been waiting for since the first one.

same here. I've been a big defender of ROTF, yet even so, I concede it was a pretty poorly constructed movie. I hope that DOTM manages to deliver

Was no fan of ROTF, but Christ, the venom that was sent Bay's way was too much. I mean, from most people's comments you would swear that Bay committed genocide or something. We'll see how DOTM works out.

"Tons of action, gigantic robots (bigger than Devastator) and no Skids and Mudflap anywhere to be seen." Actually no... Skids and Mudflap ARE seen in the trailer. They're in the back of the convoy of Autobots.

Did anyone noticed the guy that was on the wheelchair at the almost end of the trailer, i think that's Simmons!, looks like we they're really gonna sacrifice a lot in this one, Looks great, but didn't Michael Bay said this one was gonna be more about emotion then going big with the explosions?, well, he outdone himself, he went world big, hope the story line and plot is better then the visuals, looks cool though, midnight premiere all the way!

Frances Mcdormand, John Turturro and John Malkovich, whu? Did the Coen's ghost direct this, would explain why it looks so good. The Big LeBoeufski....no that's a terrible idea.

SDotKillsALot on Apr 28, 2011

It will be. These Transformers trailers always look so "epic" and completely convince the potential theater audience that they will be witnessing the greatest display of action drama in history, and then don't deliver. I'll admit that Michael Bay has a bit of a flair for stylish, dramatic action, but he ignores all the other aspects, and he has never, ever directed what could be considered a good movie. Now, sure, I liked his movies like Independence Day and Bad Boys when I was a kid, but going back and taking a second look always induces riotous laughter. Let's just face the inevitable, here. These trailers induce the greatest thrills you are likely to get from this movie.

JL on Apr 30, 2011

41

Sad but probably true. And by the way... Michael Bay DID NOT direct Independence Day! That was Roland Emmerich.

John Doe on Apr 30, 2011

42

Oops. It could very easily have been done by Bay, though. They both suck.

JL on May 2, 2011

43

Sorry JL, but that is garbage. Mr. Bay is the great director of our time. Movies dont gross 700-800million dollars if they are not amazing and loved. You low-gross loving, think you're creative and deep, wannabe-critics need to go eat shit. Bay entertains the masses and I willingly give my money to his films. So go watch Black Swan or whatever...

She may look mildly retarded, but then again Megan Fox didn't do much to come across as intelligent either.

Phillip Gockel on Apr 29, 2011

they haven't even let her speak in any of the trailers. so far all she's done is stand, fall, or look... curiously inflated. although that does fulfill all aspects of a Michael Bay film female character arc!

NO MATTER if this film sucks balls like TF2: Revenge of the Fallen (which my opinion it will not) will still rake in $1,000,000,000 in global ticket sales. Yes, I guarantee it will make a billion! Story seems epic, and will end up likely the best of the three. MICHAEL BAY and STEVEN will have redeemed themselves. THE MOVIE OF THE SUMMER.... Bigger than Potter, Thor, or Captain America!

Yeah this trailer changed my excitement to another level. However I think pirates ... On stranger tides will surprise every one as well remember that dmc has made over a billion with no 3d ticket sales which is more than any of the potters has made...

Nah your totally right, everyone had the exact same reaction for the 2nd one....and yeeeah we all know how that turned out.

Cody W. on Apr 28, 2011

66

Agreed, Brandon. For anyone who was excited about TF2 and then felt completely let down and vowed to not see TF3... did that trailer seriously win you over? There was nothing special about it at all. I mean, we all look for different things in movies and I can respect that. If you like big, loud, action movies, that's great. I hope this movie is exactly what you're looking for. Personally, I'll pass. I already saw this movie 2 years ago.

As I always said .. Transformers is all about CGI ... Forget the plot .. screenplay and acting ... Such movies have no place for these stuff .. specially when it is directed by Michael Bay who is for me a great action Director .. But this ability is making a bigger problem for him .. that he can't direct other than Action !! And as I mentioned before : His background as a short musical clip director made him think and direct his movies the same way ... and I believe it is the reason that Transformers doesn't took an Oscar for best Visual Effects until now !!! However.. It is a big opportunity now that Both Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) and Digital Domain win the Oscar .. as most of the other movies with their trilogies did before : Matrix .. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest .. Spider-Man 2 .. Lord of the Rings 1-2-3 .. Jurassic Park .. Terminator 2: Judgment Day .. etc .. No one can judge from the trailer and tell how good the CGI are !! ... But I just I believe it is time for that Oscar .. ! πŸ˜‰ If not then it is another big lost on the face of Michael Bay and both companies ILM and Digital Domain ... !!!

shero on Apr 28, 2011

86

Unfortunately, Shero, when Bay did try to step out of his zone, the result was box-office failure (THE ISLAND). If all he can do is action, well, that's just his own cross to bear. I don't expect him to be directing something from Merchant and Ivory anytime soon. (Although McG surprised the hell out of me with WE ARE MARSHALL. Damned good film.)

Those many explosions I dunno where to look. A lot of fanboys just totally wet the bed. Did look pretty decent in the HD version though. I reckon if your brain is removed at the door and your just looking at the visuals it may actually be ok, the speed of the machines was a bit slower looking which is better than before. I've always though Transformers is a B-Movie, but with a ridiculous budget and attention to detail, but it could still be plums.

Crapola on Apr 28, 2011

93

"I reckon if your brain is removed at the door and your just looking at the visuals it may actually be ok..." That's pretty much the bottom line. I mean...it's giant robots beating each other up, not CASABLANCA or CITIZEN KANE; a series of movies based on a series of toys. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. I'm not looking for the meaning of life here--just a good time at the movies. (However, I still did not like TF2. But if others did, hey, no sweat. They saw something in the film that I did not.)

OK, so the trailer didn't show any real story other than there's Bots on the moon, and now they're attacking earth. The movie is going to open up with the Bots being featured (either the scenes from the moon, or the Autobots waxing poetic about how their planet was destroyed, yada yada yada). Yeah sure, we can all relate to the perils of sentient machines. Just throw some more balls in my face, Bay.

Looks like everyone involved really stepped it up a notch in this one. Maybe the third time will be a charm and Michael Bay finally gets its right. $1,000,000,000 in worldwide boxoffice is a real possibility.

Kidgamer on Apr 28, 2011

102

It's highly unlikely that this movie can manage to go anything beyond $500-$600million at best. They screwed it up completely. It's a real mess. It's not a trilogy anymore. They should have released this movie in 2012 and think dozen times before firing Megan Fox, most stupid thing ever done by a director on his first trilogy.

Chojin996 on Apr 29, 2011

You're completely correct... Replacing Katie Holmes clearly ruined the Batman trilogy, Christopher Nolan's first trilogy... How about you just go and hate somewhere else?

Katie Holmes is NO Megan Fox. And neither is that pug-faced troll they replaced her with. I'm sorry, but HOW many times has that chick been smashed in the face with a shovel? Her nose is flat and as wide as her puffed up mouth! Fugly as I've ever seen!

Wow. That trailer was put together incredibly well. Big time props. But I'm sorry to say that I won't see it (didn't see Revenge, either). I swore to myself years back that I'd never pay to see a Bay film. And I know your suppose to "turn your brain off" at the door... but come on. I will say that I am actually really excited to see if Bay can mix his amazing visuals with a good story/characters for once. I'll be checking in to see the results in July.

Michael Bay has fooled me twice before...I'm not falling for his FX orgy a 3rd time. This trailer shows why directors like Christopher Nolan are brilliant and why Michael Bay is a glorified director of action porn. This is the cinematic equivalent of a Happy Meal. Your brain checks out after the 9 billionth explosion two minutes into the movie. Please let this one flop....please!

The trailer looks just fine. My question is... Are we gonna have 2 hours of meaninless faces looking to each other, meanwhile the entire world is cutted into pieces by robots? or actually we are going to have some plot too? I'm just asking, because, for 2 minutes and a half this looked great... but you have to put something else to make a good movie. (Yeah, I still recall last Transformers flick)

Manuel on Apr 29, 2011

when Bay said there was gonna be emotion for this one, he sure was right...the trailer certainly seemed to make it feel a lot darker than any of the other movies and it helps to have a massive robot invasion mixed in and was it just me or did it sound almost like optimus and the autobots were abandoning the humans when he's talking to sam which looks like it could very well be one of the last scenes of the movie???

cooper on Apr 29, 2011

126

Inception much!? Still not buying it. Bay can try to plagiarize from better filmmakers and still turn out complete and utter garbage. The one and only good film he's made was The Rock. Since then, it's been one long parade of amazingly stupefying films. At this point, it seems as if he is virtually incapable of making a coherent film. Spielberg should just take him aside and teach him some filmmaking 101. I honestly hope Bay has some sense left in him to make a decent film.

maybe it's my untrained eye, but i still don't get why people hated part 2 so much. Was it bad CGI, bad writing? enlighten me. I mean this looks about the same - big production with little story, and great background music again.

Guest on Apr 29, 2011

131

could it be a case where everyone jumped on a band wagon, yet didn't have an opinion on why t was bad. I admit, i watched it thought it was good, but then my mind started changing based on what i heard in the public. I stopped, because i didn't know why i was hating it.

Guest on Apr 29, 2011

132

They hated it because of the 2 "racist" robots (which imo were only mildly annoying at best; didn't bug me as much as they bugged everyone else), the storyline (which I thought was fine), and some twiddly-bits here and there, such as transformer girl (I'll admit it, I didn't like that plot point), high mother on campus (meh, neither hit or fail for me), the computer wiz (yes, he was annoying and should never have been given that much of a role in the movie, give me back the black guy from the first movie anyday), the robot testicles (...), Sam's resurrection (to be honest, I should be annoyed at that plot detail, but for some reason I'm not; I just went with it), among other things. That said, I enjoyed the 2nd movie a lot, more so than the first movie, despite its faults, which I really think people are blowing out of proportion. They complain about a storyline based from a line of toys? Who the hell are we kidding? I'd say the storylines are pretty frikkin good considering. I mainly watch them for the action, and it is delivered wonderfully, more so in the 2nd one than in the 1st one (I still like the 1st one, for the record). And I really don't know why all this hate gets stuck up in people's craw. They have to have some other reason besides RotF to hate Bay for all this. Probably expectation let-down or the fact that it made more money than other movies they enjoyed more during that time. Either way, I'm taking this movie for what it is, a nice popcorn action flick. I mean, it delivers all the action anyone could hope for in an action movie. It's sole purpose is to do that, nothing less, though I'd be lying if I didn't think there were times that it didn't strive for something more, which I have a feeling they're trying to do with this 3rd one. I, for one, am going to see it. I came out with a smile on my face from the first 2, I'm expecting to do the same for the 3rd one. There can't be that many haters for Bay in existence. Otherwise, why else would the movies be so successful?

Gex, while I wasn't too thrilled with the second film, I never got the vitriol that was sent Bay's way. I mean, there are people who liked it (check the box office), and I did dig some parts of it. Never understood the alleged racism (and I'm a black guy), but I also like the fact that the college stuff was filmed in Princeton. "And I really don't know why all this hate gets stuck up in people's craw. They have to have some other reason besides RotF to hate Bay for all this." Some of it seems like Bay committed a crime against humanity or that he's a war criminal. I don't get it myself . If you even can get through some of the spew on AICN's talkbacks about DOTM, it's enough to make you wonder if some people really need therapy. Bay does his own type of movie, and does it well. He makes popcorn films bursting with action. This is in no way sucking him off--it's just stating what he does, and has been doing, for most of his directorial career. The TF films are action-adventures, based on toys and a cartoon series. There's no raping of childhoods here (and whoever came up with that line is, pardon my language, a f**king a$$hole). Plus, no one is holding a gun to your head to watch these films. If people don't like Bay and his films, fine. They're entitled to that. I just wish they wouldn't make it personal.

I agree 100%, it's strictly hyper- entertainment filled with "fantasy characters, science fiction, and Super Heros we all love. MB has played a huge part in bringing us some great movies. Geez, give the man his due.

I have a tiny insight into this Scopedog... Maybe the people who hate these kind of movies didn't leave their parent's basements in times past. Unfortunately, since the rise in use of the internet, these people now can have a voice and project their hatred of the world via online guises. Furthermore, they can download the movies they vow "never to pay for" so that they can remain anonymous to the world. It's a shame, these people should see some kind of therapist because it feels like pure evil coming from the words of the few. It almost feels like they were raped as children, down by the bay, by a chap called Michael - it's THAT obscure. For the record, I prefer the first movie to the second, only because of the plot holes that were forced into the second from having a story too large for the length of movie it was to fill. The action was much better in the second, and the story would have been better had it been delivered in the correct pacing. At least, to give MB credit, he came out and acknowledged that RotF wasn't his best work, and that there were many things that they all were disappointed in. He stood by his guns and removed Megan Fox from the picture when she wouldn't back down on his creative opinion on what he wanted in his movie (one less Diva being paid millions). He took the criticism from the second movie on board, and HOPEFULLY we shall see the fruits on that labour in this movie. Anyway, I'm going to get back to work now. All of you haters should just go, take a chill pill and try and correct your miserable lives before imposing it on others. The world will be a much happier place.

Its been a long time but I thought Prime had a mean streak even in the comics when he needed it? In transformers the Movie he sure as hell didnt hold back the firepower when he got to earth.

Get Ready For Shia LeBeouf -a - Thon III, with 30% More Shia LeBeouf And None Of That Megan Fox To Get In The Way.

Everything looks good except that new chick. Im sorry but she is dead ugly and not only in that trailer but in other pictures I have seen of her. Could they not find anyone better ?

PyroDark on Apr 29, 2011

This movie is a major disappointment. When Michael Bay fired Megan Fox he screwed it completely. Then he cast this Rosie topmodel that looks pretty ugly and can't act a little bit. Then even dumber he decided to destroy characters plot continuity and consistency from the first two movies by having Sam Witwicky with a new girlfriend Carly played by this Rosie. Big fail. Huge fail. And then they came up with what they think is going to be a funny idea to get rid of Mikaela Banes character that of telling that she dumped Sam Witwicky and she was only interested in Autobots... WHAT? I mean.. WHAT? They are just plain stupid. Is the most stupid thing ever done to a blockbuster franchise, ever.

Can't lie, that was a badass trailer. My only complaint is Whiteley, they should have just done without a love interest entirely, I feel it's going to be one of the anchors that bring the movie down a notch.

They better give Chicago some credit. Filmmakers love to use Chicago for its awesome skyscrapers, but somehow it's never actually mentioned in the movie.

Anonymous on Apr 29, 2011

Nope, you're not wrong, ross. Prime would certainly bring the pain in the comics (only against the Decepticons, though). And there were times in the comics when he had doubts about whether the Autobots could ever really co-exist with humans.

If I remember rightly everyone went nuts for the trailer of the last film "Revenge Of The Fallen". I don't trust trailers anymore. I will wait until the second week and hear what people have to say about it before trusting in Bay again...

Looks terrible. I hate this Bionicle Bayformers crap. I'd rather watch a Go-Bots movie than this garbage. Shockwave does look amazingly cool, though! Too bad Bay already ruined Soundwave by changing his voice, so I'm sure he's ruined Shockwave, too. He already ruined the Optimus Prime-Megatron focus, the Megatron-Starscream relationship and don't get me started on Skids and Mudflap. Seriously. Bay, I hate you.

Okay, all you fanboys that think this is the best year ever, need I remind you about a few years ago when we thought it was the best year ever? We had Transformers 2, GI Joe, Wolverine, new Terminator, new Underworld, Dragonball and Street Fighter. How'd that work out for us? Other than Star Trek, NOT TOO GOOD!
