Forget That One-Sheet! Check Out This New TRANSFORMERS Trailer!

Wow. Guys, I know how much some of you are invested in hating this one, and who knows how it plays as a film? I know that people are starting to lay eyes on it this weekend, and I’m itching to see it myself. Especially when we see a trailer like this one, which several of you forwarded to me tonight. I don’t know nothin’ from nothin’ about the source material, but there are images we’re starting to see now that are going to create all-new fans, and if the whole movie delivers that type of mayhem, then count me in. And contrary to what talkbackers are saying below, it's not a dead link. I think we may be firebombing it right now, but try right-clicking "Save Link As," and you'll see that it will save as a QT movie for you. Be patient. It's a huge high-res version.

    trailer is AWESOME

    by x-oManowar

    okay I am officially excited now! I can't believe i just said that about a michael bay move that doesn't end in 'rock'...also sorry to spam but new Valiant Comics are better than posting first.

    by Mr Gorilla

    Michael Bay's action scenes really do knock your cocks off. (Although I wish he could get into the dying art of the Quiet Action Scene - i.e. the first T Rex attack in Jurassic, or Cruise upside down in Mission: Impossible. Not every action scene has to have that loud fucking music.) If Bay manages to play the story right, it could be so good. And no trailer can give us an idea about THAT.

  • June 15, 2007, 4:16 a.m. CST

    first, whoops

    by jonparrdotcom

    First post ever, (thoght i might be able to come first) but c'mon we all got to see this. Its not exactly the transformers we grew up with but damn they are being respectful to the essence. Beggers can't be choosers, as long as they are respectful I'm on board.

    a lot longer than 5 minutes to load. Geeze, you'd think Mori would do a mirror or something, you know?

    Geeze--how many stereotypes can you pack in a trailer?

    by moondoggy2u

    Other than trying to reach every demographic imaginable, (suburban white trash--check, mouthy black people--check, Patriotic soldier/yellow ribon types--check, oh, and some transformers) in less than 30 seconds. Color me impressed!

    "These robots are really distracting..."

  • June 15, 2007, 9:02 a.m. CST


    by just pillow talk

    The tusken decapitating admitting scene to padme was bad. He came across as a spoiled brat, not the menace known as Vader to be. And Padme was too quick to 'forgive' him too. I did enjoy the Fett/Kenobi fight, and of course the end fight. But it was the worst of the prequels I think. Yack is right, remove Jar Jar and maybe tweak a couple things here and there, and episode 1 would have been much better.

  • June 15, 2007, 9:11 a.m. CST

    Of course he will return

    by seagrass

    It's Transformers! Hopefully, the sequel will give us a plot involving Shockwave and Soundwave...perhaps they are able to resurrect him, but as a result he ends up getting permanently stuck in an earthly form, which causes him to hate the fleshlings even more.

  • June 15, 2007, 10:12 a.m. CST

    Favorite part os Episode 3


    was when the emperor was pretending to be in pain and pretending that Mace Windu was killing him, in order to gain sympathy from Anakin and thus have Anakin kill Windu. I loved how the emperor was just whining like no tomorrow and hell he kinda looked like Ozzy osborne! How awesome is that!<p><p>Second favorite part: "I do it because I love you, No, its because *I* love you!"

  • June 15, 2007, 10:14 a.m. CST

    noone will feel silly, weve all said it will be a good


    we all thought it would. but it should have been more faithful to the original. just cause it becomes a sellout blockbuster doesn't change that there were unnecessary changes that have pissed a lot of people off.

    unnecessary changes?

    by skynetbauxi

    I tend to believe that creative geniuses (and you don't become a Michael Bay without being a creative genius) do think long and hard about how to best transfer their source material to the screen. and I REALLY don't think they make any unnecessary changes. I'm SURE they have their reasons. like Peter Jackson had his reasons (and VERY GOOD reasons, as you'll understand if you watch all the extras on the extended DVDs). what many people don't seem to get is, a great story doesn't automatically work completely unaltered in a different medium than the one it was originally presented in. sure, you could probably "transform" a book or tv show word-by-word into a movie, and a lot of fans of the source material might even like the result... but in the end, a filmmaker wants to make a GOOD MOVIE, and a good movie usually doesn't mean a word-by-word transfer of the source material to the big screen.

But friggin-a I do get irritated by that big "MICHAEL BAY" over the title screen. like the property itself could NEVER sell this movie. Oh no... it's from the director of Pearl Harbor and that movie nobody saw last year. THAT'S what will get the butts in the seats. Speilberg has that gravitas, not you Bay.

    This movie will still be terrible

    by CaptainGilgore

    Here's the thing about Lucas. He just wanted to give the audience what they wanted (aka, lightsaber duel in part 1, pod race in 1, yoda fighting in 2, obi-wan fighting anakin in 3) but was too lazy to do the rest of the work (actually create a story behind it). The funny thing is, those parts I listed - the whole reason he made the films, HE DIDN'T EVEN WRITE THOSE PARTS OUT! He just wrote *fight scene here* and *the two fight here* and *the pod race* and then let his technical people figure it out. That means he not only didn't put any time into the story, he didn't put any time into the action scenes. What the fuck did George Lucas actually do??? ------ As for this movie, we can learn a little bit from Episode 1, which I think had one of the best trailers ever in the history of the world. Unfortunately I learned a lesson with that trailer that forever changed the way I anticipate movies. Trailers are NOT MADE BY THE DIRECTOR. They are made by someone else way more talented who knows how to create a story in 2 minutes (or one, or 30 seconds). It has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on if the movie is going to be good AT ALL. Cause you're not seeing that long stupid scene where Shia LaBeoufowitz talks to his girlfriend about his dream to be a racer. Or that ridiculous exposition scene where they actually try and explain why aliens have decided to take the form of cars. Go watch The Island and Pearl Harbor back to back and tell me that Bay has any ability whatsoever to create a story. (and don't bring up The Rock either. That was back when people still told him what to do)

    by Big Dumb Ape

    It's only a commercial, which I've been trying to stay away from to not ruin too much of the movie for me, but it was kick ass all the same.<p>This may not be the cartoon EXACTLY...this may not be the toys realized onscreen EXACTLY...but frankly I don't care. I'm old enough to remember the Transformers show/toys, but I have to say I also expected Hollywood to change and tweak things for a live action movie. And the whole "flames on Optimus" just seems silly at this point and really way too bottom of the barrel fanboy-ish in terms of whining.<p>Bottom line: this looks bad ass and really looks like the first "geek" film this summer to actually come through delivering the goods. Plus I just think the combo of Bay AND Spielberg will be the right chemistry to juice both of them into creating a real uber geek experience.

    thats not the case at all. I hope the movie does well, I KNOW IT WILL DO WELL. AND score the years most amount of MONEY.<p><p>But I know just from the designs that they never really got Transformers...Bay even admits he wasn't a fan when he came on to this film so its not hard to believe. Knowing Bay do you really think he understands sci-fi / fantasy as a genre? What it takes to breathe life into creatures? To me it's obvious by looking at the faces of the characters that he does not understand. Hes just a 40 something action film director, he doesn't get this shit. Hes just doing it cause Speilberg bitch slapped him and told him so.

    Does anyone truly believe that this will fail

    by HeWhoCannotBeNamed

    at the box office? Regardless of your stance, I cannot fathom this film failing. It's new in the since that it has giant robots i.e. something not seen to this degree on the big screen. The ads do their job well. Word of mouth doesn't really hurt SFX Spectacle films, does it? I don't pay attention to the financials of films, I just see what appeals to me, but I think this movie is going to be very profitable. I wouldn't be surprised if parts 2 & 3 got greenlit after opening weekend. I'm sure the target audience are bugging the shit out of their parents to take them to it. Perhaps I am naive.

  • June 15, 2007, 4:09 p.m. CST


    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    That depends on the source material you are referring to. The intent of this movie was to have it BASED mostly on G1. Yet, as some people seem to forget, G1 is not the only incarnation of Transformers and it's not the only incarnation that has fans. While G1 remains the most iconic (because of the age group of its initial fanbase), the producers of this movie chose to incorporate references from all the other versions, too.<P>And according to Bay, after Spielberg convinced him to direct (and make no mistake - Spielberg WANTED Bay on this project), he immediately went to "Transformers School" with execs from Hasbro. The first thing they all appeared to want and agree upon was to start the franchise over fresh. That included the designs.<P>Now, whether these designs "suck" is a matter of personal opinion and nothing more. But I think one would have to be in total denial if they can't bring themselves to admit that these designs are phenomenal in complexity and execution. The bottom line is they shot for more with these designs = more realism and more flexibility.

  • June 15, 2007, 4:39 p.m. CST


    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    We all know Murphy is also an idiot. But read his own quotes again. If you say you are largely basing it on G1, of course you're going to say:<P>"Using the characters, using the mythology we all know and love".<P>"The Decepticons and the Autobots are characters. They are discernable individual things." - That statement is an incredible example of the "Art of Bullshitting".<P>Pointing towards the big statue of Optimus and saying that its your inspiration for what they want in the movie is a given. There are many different incarnations of Prime (some with lips!!!). But the one they wanted to pay homage to was G1. Duh.<P>As much as I dislike DM, I have to say that nowhere in your list of quotes/evidence does he say that they promised or guaranteed a complete duplication of the G1 look and mythos.

    michael bay's track record

    by mrdinky

    BAD BOYS was great fun and had nothing whatever to do with michael bay. it was a buddy comedy. hell, brett frackin' ratner can do a buddy comedy. THE ROCK was completely blown out of proportion and unreal (typical of bruckheimer and bay), but in comparison with his later "films," well composed and not completely stupifying. ARMAGEDDON was atrocious. I'm not sure it's bay's fault that the script is more shallow than my niece's inflatable pool, but the impossibly poor editing (i.e., putting together scenes that supposedly tell a story) is something a director should be held accountable for. the less said about PEARL HARBOR, the better. but I do love that kate beckinsale. BAD BOYS 2 was BAD BOYS bigger, louder, and uncut...and also less funny and more tired. THE ISLAND was michael freakin' bay's best movie by a long shot. He's still an incredibly overblown action director, but you can at least see him struggling with the possibility of a script with substance. it's a stock theme for sci-fi, but it's good to see him out from under the wing of herr bruckheimer. which brings us to TRANSFORMERS. I loved Transformers. But get real. a movie based on a tv & comics series designed to sell toys and directed by michael bay? get real. you might as well ask paul anderson to direct HALO. or give uwe boll...anything. there's no chance of getting a complete movie here. no chance. so of course people are focusing on the big bot battles. it's GOT to be better than those stv MECHWARRIOR knockoffs from the L80s and 90s.

    transformers scanned earth

    by huggerorange

    transformers scanned earth vehicles. I d say thats enough reason for bumblebee to have a real engine- If you notice-. When meagan opens the hood, (BB in his old camaro version),his engine is high tech compared to what a car like that would normally have. So its not totally just a regular old camaro. Another thing is when she says nice headers,"youve got a high rise double pump carburetor pretty impressive"...the engine clearly doesnt have a carburetor...its fuel injected,you cant have a carb and fuel injection-its one or the other. Even if what you see in that scene is not a functional engine its what the design team or whomever made it to resemble. So meagans dialogue, on top of it being badly played is totally B.S...- the only thing she got right was the headers. When shes shaking the distributor cause she says "it may be loose", the distributor cap is at the back of the engine on this car..shed have to crawl inside the car to even touch it from where shes standing. It looks like shes shaking the radiator cap instead-lol. Not only does meagan fox not know shit about cars, her character in the the movie doesnt know shit either. Meagans still hot though, who cares. In trying to defend bumble bees design and correct superninja, Ive made more points to hate the movies dialogue and make me cringe.
