It started as a legend…
I am seriously more excited for this Transformers movie than I have been for any in the franchise. The lore woven in to this installment is the most intriguing by far, and I think it could rival the first one for best film of the franchise. Say what you want about Bay as a director, but he knows how to get butts in the seats…especially my butt.
Also, did you catch that little Easter egg on the moon at 0:56? I believe that was Sentinal’s ship from “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” getting torn up by Unicron. Pretty cool little throwback. Just further showing that Michael Bay doesn’t piece these stories together with hot glue. They are all well thought out installments into a bigger tale.
As a side note, this trailer will get replayed during the 2nd quarter of the Super Bowl with added footage.
At this point in the Transformers franchise do we even need humans? They are as about as useful as a screen door on a submarine (Not my joke, but i’ll use it as such). The only reason Spike was of use to the Autobots in the 1986 movie was because he had a damn exoskeleton. And don’t get me started on that pussy Daniel. Get rid of the humans and give me more Transformers, please and thank you.
What does this trailer say about the movie? It means one thing, Optimus is going down and it’s Hot Rod’s time to shine. I couldn’t be happier. Optimus dies, passes on the Matrix of Leadership straight to Hot Rod (FUCK Ultra Magnus) and he takes this franchise in a new direction.
ONE SMALL REQUEST. More 80s music in the movies to come…
I like! I like! I’m not sure how you can go wrong with William Fichtner as Shredder. That dude is made to play the villain role. He was a total DICK in ‘Elysium’.
HEROS IN A HALF SHELL…TURTLE POWER!
PS- I personally would have casted Kate Upton as April O’Neil, but I guess i’ll just have to stare at Megan fox for 2+ hours. Ho hum.
PSS- Need this brought back!
