The theatrical trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon has landed online. We see some pretty fantastic looking footage on the moon, followed by some really impressive stuff back on Earth. We’re talking full-on invasion this time around. We get our first look at Frances McDormand as well. However, as we all know from the second flick Revenge of the Fallen, simply watching robots fight for 2+ hours does not a good movie make (understatement). This one has to be better thanRevenge of the Fallen, right? Hitting 3D theaters on July 1st, Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, Tyrese Gibson, Patrick Dempsey, and voice work from Hugo Weaving, Peter Cullen, and Leonard Nimoy.
Here’s the first synopsis for Transformers: Dark of the Moon:
When a mysterious event from Earth’s past erupts into the present day it threatens to bring a war to Earth so big that the Transformers alone will not be able to save us. The movie stars Shia LaBeouf, John Turturro, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Patrick Dempsey, Kevin Dunn, with John Malkovich and Frances McDormand.
Paramount aired an awesome spot for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon during the Super Bowl. If you’ve been waiting to see some actual footage from the movie, you need to hit the jump. I don’t want to spoil what Optimus Prime does in the footage, but let’s just say it involves a sword and him cutting up some decepticons.
Ah, the Super Bowl. An event like no other. It’s uniqueness lies in the fact that you don’t really even have to care about the teams that are playing because there’s so much more to savor. Whether it be those silly Budweiser ads, the whacked-out, over the top halftime shows that typically star musical icons many presumed dead; or, most importantly, the movie trailers.
Among those included are Paramount’s Super 8 and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. For the complete list, as well as a look at the trailers that will debut during the pre-game festivities, hit the jump.
