Just in case there wasn’t enough testosterone coursing through Super Bowl XLV, the preview trailer for “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” should have done the trick.
The new 30-second trailer for the third “Transformers” installment brought with it a bevy of battling robots, concerned-looking humans (the movie’s stars Shia LaBeouf, Tyrese Gibson, and Megan Fox’s replacement, Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), and the general destruction director Michael Bay tends to bring along with any project.
Unlike the movie’s first trailer , which has already hit theaters and features Neil Armstrong’s journey to the moon in 1969 turning out a little differently (apparently in Bay’s world, one small step for man was one giant step for sneaky robots), this spot was short, and for “Transformers” fans, pretty sweet.
With a tagline that warns “On 7/1/11 Earth Will Go Dark” spliced in with all the action (and that’s really all there is, as not a single line of dialogue is uttered in the spot), viewers only saw blips of what can be expected on the big screen this summer.
The preview for the not-yet-rated flick featured scenes of disarray and panic on the streets (at times looking awfully reminiscent of another summer blockbuster with a Super Bowl ad: “Battle: Los Angeles”), burning cities, helicopter collisions and a car crash, which transforms into, well, Transformers. And, of course, there’s the return of both Bumblebee and Optimus Prime.
All this in the span of about 30 seconds, America!
