Well if you were hoping to get something new and exciting out of Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, you just may be out of luck. A new trailer for the upcoming summer movie hit the web last night, and it looks to deliver the exact same giant robot action, with the only difference being that this time they’re a little more giant. There’s the obligatory shots of Shia LaBeouf screaming “Optimus!”, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looking even less expressive than Megan Fox, and lots of anonymous mechanical contraptions doing slow-mo pirouettes through sparks and smoke. Hey, if you liked Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, you’re going to love this.
To add to the feeling of deja vu, the trailer is also making use of a musical score very reminiscent of Inception, which only makes it like the 100th trailer this year to rip off Hans Zimmer. It seems like a cheap ploy even for Michael Bay. I guess one of the selling points this time around is the appearance of Shockwave, but just like all of the other robots, he seems virtually unrecognizable as the character I once knew. I’m still somewhat curious to see if Michael Bay brings anything new in terms of 3-D effects, but other than that I’m bored already. Transformers: Dark of the Moon hits theatres on July 1st; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
