Not to be outdone by G.I. Joe (although I doubt such a thing is possible), a new trailer for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen also went online today over at Yahoo!. People have been chomping at the bit for this… there were even a bunch of special theatrical screenings held in major cities yesterday just to watch it. With all the hype you’d think this was going to be the best trailer ever cut in the history of movies. So yeah, call me crazy, but I just didn’t think it was all that mind-blowing.
The last Transformers 2 trailer was far more effective in terms of generating excitement, but I suppose you can’t give away all the action and destruction ahead of time. Here we also get a few character moments, some humour and some bits and pieces of the story as well. I do like the mystery of the symbols, and I hope that it will create some suspense and intrigue, but I have a feeling it may just be a 5 minute backdrop to the robot wrestling. Seeing Optimus Prime fighting with the blades was kind of cool… does anyone else get the feeling he’s going to die in this one? I’m already getting choked up. Anyway, I don’t know what else to say… you either want to love it or you want to hate it, and there’s not much middle ground. Check out the trailer below and sound off in the comments below. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theatres on June 24th.
