Transformers 3 SuperBowl Teaser Is Here (Update 2)

The Superbowl ad for Transformers: Dark of the Moon has finally aired during the second quarter at the 11:01 mark in the game. It is pretty bad-a$@ with lots of robot action. As promised by MichaelBay.com has posted the ad, links below. For those who enjoy the game for the commercials, YouTube has the Adblitz channel for most of the Superbowl ads once they air. Thanks to NHLfan for the link.

Update:Here is a fantastic comparison shot from the beginning of the trailer with a picture that Jeff of Pixel Rally took when Transformers 3 was filming at the MPEA Busway in Chicago this summer. It shows what a great camera angle combined with color correction and CGI can produce.

Update 2: Here are 9 screenshots I gathered that show off moments on the Superbowl TV Spot. The first one is worth looking at just to see the destruction of the Chicago skyline with damaged, toppled and bent buildings. The next two show that Ironhide isn't colliding with one but both of the Suburban Dreads. The fourth shows more invasion destruction of Chicago. Fifth is a look at the worm thing. Sixth is Laserbeak complete with the homage to his G1 cassette look with turbines on his wings. The seventh pic shows Optimus Prime flying onto the scene (in front of Hotel 71) with Bumblebee and Ratchet on site. In the middle of that may be Soundwave but I think its just a drone that falls to Prime's blade in the next last two screenshots.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Pause at 26 seconds; you'll see a wide shot with the new-look Ratchet and a beige/brown Decepticon that looks VERY similar to Brawl! :O

    ReplyDelete
  31. I saw Ratchet in there :)
    Hopefully if Optimus dies, he will go out with a bang

    ReplyDelete
  32. Another well edited trailer, thanks MB.

    Looks like the tail thing of Shockwave at :22 and a great take of Laserbeak at :24

    Nice action scene for Optimus

    ReplyDelete
  33. At least this one isn't completely orange, the DP did his job by the looks of things. Also massively excited for laserbeak (whatever that was) and jet prime!

    ReplyDelete
  34. OH wow... Just wow and I hope its Swoop and not laserbeak...

    ReplyDelete
  35. In the Way Back of :27....Shockwave? He looks kinda Silver though...but you can make out a cyclops eye...

    ReplyDelete
  36. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. That kind of sucked.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Baysplosions!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I don't think that was Shockwave at the back at:27, it looked more like another version of Blackout or Grindor

    HOLY CRAP!!! EPIC!!! I JUST CRAPPED MY PANTS
    THE WHOLE EARTH IS GOING TO HELL
    ALL HAIL OPTIMUS PRIME!!! HE'S KICKING SOME SERIOUS ASS!!!
    All those spaceships, THAT SOUNDTRACK!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. When Prime is flying in, Shockwave is at to left of screen.

    ReplyDelete
  42. OH

    FUCKING

    GOD

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!

    SO HAPPY!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. EEEH!!! Looks epic and awesome! Did I see Lazerbeak? Can't wait!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Looks pretty good but so did ROTF and we all know how that turned out.

    ReplyDelete
  45. It's going to be a disappointment.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I seen Long Haul and the first Decepticon Optimus hits looks like Sideways!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. ironhide plz dont die!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I am so happy with this 30sec trailer. I can't wait to see Ironhide take on the Dreads, watching Soundwave come down to Earth (or him being thrown in battle)and just seeing all those ships attacking the city! Unfortunately, my only problem is that I saw a few Cons that should be dead (Brawl or whoever the character is and Long Haul). But I'll get over it! :D

    ReplyDelete
  49. Too much going on. Looks like Cybertron invades Earth? I wish we had an idea of what the hell the movie is about. Not really what I was hoping. How about a full trailer for heck sake?

    ReplyDelete
  50. OH and Michael Bay nice job using some annoying ass sound throughout the first 20 seconds of a 30 second teaser. idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I am sure Bay will recycle robots again, lets just hope he doesn't do it so much it makes the movie crappy like Revenge of the Fallen

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yup. An invasion is what it looked like to me. Need to see more!

    ReplyDelete
  53. OMG! This movie is going is awsome. Thank you bay!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I cazptured an image from the scene where Prime flies in, There is a beige colored robot, and he indeed does have Brawls head.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ok lets recap what we saw. First we are shown Chicago pretty destroyed, people evacuating and sam in an older car driving towards the city. next we see what i think is a skydiver jumping from an exploding V-22 osprey. Also in the background you can see buildings on fire and lean a little bit at the top. Next we see Ironhide crashing head on into a dread and then transforming in midair. The we see Bublebee looking very scared and or stressed out as, what I think, decepticon ships are flying overhead. Then we see decpticon ships firing on buildings at night. This is basically the footage we saw of explosions on rooftops during filming. Next we see something VERY BIG transforming on a street. Then we see a flying transformers, could be swoop but i'm going with Laserbeak on this one. The we see Sam and Epps lying down on the ground (probably taking cover) with, what i think, an Autobot standing in the background. Then we see Carly standing in front of a car flipping and exploding. And finally we see the autobots engaging decepticons while Optimus transforms from his flying mode and kills a couple of cons. Great trailer

    ReplyDelete
  56. But here is the thing it can't be a real big invasion I mean there are only like 12 autobots. What could they do against a decepticon army? Nothing... So the autobots better get some real big reinforcements like dinobots or something real. Ultra Magnus and the Wreckers can't do anything to stop a decepticon army...

    ReplyDelete
  57. "ITS GOING TO BE A DISSAPOINTMENT", shut your mouth boy, that was 1000% pure epikness! and Prime with a jetpack, Michael, I think you did it this time!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I saw Sideways! Maybe they will give him some redemption in this Movie! Characters I have spotted so far:
    Optimus, Bumblebee, Ironhide, Ratchet, The Dreads, Long Haul, Sideways, (I think I saw Megatron, but unsure), Laserbeak(Or even possibly swoop),and Shockwave(I think)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh I forgot Brawl, too.

    ReplyDelete
  60. That was NOT sideways... THAT WAS BARRICADE!!!!! OMG OMG OMG

    ReplyDelete
  61. Why didn't they ever bring Jazz back and what autobots do you think are going to get killed? Maybe some of the new ones? Michael Bay may be releasing limited amounts of the film because it blows

    ReplyDelete
  62. best teaser ever!!!! cant wait

    ReplyDelete
  63. All the characters from the previous movies could be in it. After all. this movie is about redemption from ROTF

    ReplyDelete
  64. If your jaw isn´t in the floor you´re officially dead inside

    ReplyDelete
  65. I gotta say, I'm sooo terribly excited for Bot-con this year! Gonna bring out my Bumblebee one last time and got a whole buncha of buds as OP, Ironhide, Jazz, Arcee and more!

    I need to stop watching this trailer! arruugghhhhhhhh hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  66. The green bot was not Ratchet, I think it is one of the wreckers, the green Wrecker, That green Wrecker also blows away a con while Optimus flies in. As for the worm thing tearing up the street, I think it's shockwave, The thing at the end of the tentacles looks the same as the shockwave toy.

    ReplyDelete
  67. you guys are seeing 2 SUVs colliding with Ironhide, not 1, right?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Like the whole apocalyptic feel they seem to be going with. Laserbeak kicks ass. Just tone down the comedy and it might actually work.

    ReplyDelete
  69. TRANSFORMERS BLOG OWNER!

    IRONHIDE CRASHES INTO BOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SUVS! NOT JUST ONE BUT BOTH

    ReplyDelete
  70. Ironhide take on two dreads

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yeah it looks like two suvs from the photo above.

    ReplyDelete
  72. ANOTHER THING YOU GUYS AREN'T SEEING IS.. THAT IS A FLYINNG TRANSFORMER ON OPTIMUS BACK WHEN HE IS FLYING IN AS YOU SEE HE DETACHES FROM OPTIMUS WHEN THEY LAND MUST BE AN ARIELBOT..

    ReplyDelete
  73. OMG who changed the video??!?!? WTH

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hopefully we will FINALLY get to see Ironhide be more than in the background in a fight. Other than him shooting and missing at Davastator in TF1 he is never more than simply "present" for any battle scenes. We've been looking at those huge cannons on his arms for two full movies so far. Just once, I'd like to see him fire those things straight into a decepticon and blow it up.....just once.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh man, Optimus flying in, ditching his jetpack, spinning around in slow motion whilst kicking @$$ with explosions going off in the background was just about the coolest thing I have ever seen.
    Ever.
    SERIOUSLY.

    ReplyDelete
  76. people look at this screenshot i took from the trailer. it's Long Haul. we all know there were 2 of him in ROTF, which was bad. are they recycling again, or did they just recycle for the trailer?

  77. Just realized made cut and paste error putting the Super 8 trailer up instead of my channel's copy of it. Just finished correcting it and verified now displays in HD (at 720p) but can go to 1080p.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Thanks to the people who noticed Ironhide taking on 2 dreads, I completely missed that the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  79. A few things I noticed. If you freeze it at the :15 mark you can see several small craft below the larger craft, and they look a LOT like that spaceship prop that we saw a lot of still photos of from the photos of filming in Chicago.

    Also, when Epps and Sam are lying on the ground, if you freeze it at that point, the bot behind them is CLEARLY Optimus.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hey, I saw your mother in that trailer...

    ReplyDelete
  81. What some people don't realize is that some cybertronians are classed based. there were a few constructicons in the last movie only a small select could change in to devastator. so there could another con that looks like brawl. just like grindor and black out with differances

    ReplyDelete
  82. A few other things.

    If you pause it at :22, which is right when it cuts to Optimus flying in. You can see Bee and Ratchet in the lower left corner. An earlier poster said it ws not Ratchet, but he/she is wrong, and you can tell by looking at the tires. They are SUV tires, not NASCAR tires. You can see another Grindor/Blackout clone in the top middle standing at the far end of the open area. I believe that he gets cut in half in thye last frames of the trailer that show Optimus' rampage, and I support that claim because the trailer plays the same sound effect that played in ROTF when Prime cut off Grindor's bladed hand during the forest fight. A clone of Devastator (Brawl) is also in plain view around the center-right. You can see the missile rack on his right shoulder, which is the same missile rack that Jazz twisted and kicked off in when he fought the TF1 version of Devastator (Brawl).

    ReplyDelete
  83. Regarding clones, I think is important to consider that when a new bot arrives on the planet's surface, there is not always a lot of time to seek out a suitable alt mode to scan. Since we have seen bots scan an alt mode and then take on its form, it's pretty easy to conclude that the data generated by the scan is just that.....data. It seems likely that such data is transferrable, and as such it makes a lot of sense to me for bots to "share" forms with each other. Such an idea is not too different than the outcome of multiple bots scanning the same alt mode vehicle.

  84. GO GREENBAY!

    ReplyDelete
  85. 1. what's whith all the haters?!! This should give anybody who ever had doubts evry bit of hope!
    2.to the speculation of jet-prime, if seen frame per frame, you can see that what's on optimus's back is a whole fighter jet, and within seconds it detaches, the most likely solution is areialbot.
    3. It's obviously Laserbeak! for one, if paused at the right time you can clearly see a bird, not a pterasaur, and two, why can't a giant robot produce a giant robot bird (as compared to regular birds) from the scene we see o him, he's either scouting or sending a message, not spying, so there would be no reason to have him be the size ofa regular bird, also from what it looks like laserbeak is based off a falcon or some other big bird of prey, which i think would be pretty easy to notice if it was following me around

    ReplyDelete
  86. the jetpack on Prime's back is his trailer, it falls of as he is spinning and "f"ing up cons...i knew prime having his trailer would be awesome...i wanted to see the red ferari* but i guess it can wait...

    ReplyDelete
  87. That jetpack is somewhat strangely simalar to the jet prop Shia and Rosie were filming on. I hope that's not an aerialbot, that would be almost a waste to use such great characters from the cartoons that could have such major potential as little pawns that just assist the major characters into battle and leave.

    ReplyDelete
  88. It's Prime with his jet pack. Check the left side of the screen at :06. You can see Prime flying in for battle.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Starscream822/06/2011 10:28 PM

    I really hope that's laserbeak, and I'm not a fan of cloned decepticon drones but if this wasn't a trailer and we all weren't so thirsty for any little trickle of CGI footage we probably wouldn't even notice them, I must say though, with this many robots and ships there's no way this movie is going to suck and I am praising god that its in a major city and not in some egyptian dessert for the big fight...that was super lame of bay in ROTF

    ReplyDelete
  90. In the 8th of the 9 still photos now posted, you can see parts of the "jetpack" still attached to Optimus. It is clearly NOT an aerialbot or separate autobot.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'm sorry, but Rosie's lips just look too wierd for me. When will they get a girl with natural (not distracting) lips?

    ReplyDelete
  92. if you think that is a Jetpack you are really blind...thats a whole plane people I'm pretty sure Optimus trailer is more than likely a hologram like mustache man ..a trailer of that size turning into a jetpack is ridiculous im surprised you guys would even think that...Im sure thats an arielbot that just flies him down there and detaches and gets back into the fight..

    ReplyDelete
  93. That's about as much bad-ass as you can pack into 30 seconds.

    ReplyDelete
  94. If you are sure that it is an aerialbot that drops Prime and flies off, why are parts of it (read:wings) still attached to him while he is still on the ground? See photo #8 above to see what I am talking about.

    ReplyDelete
  95. i looked at photo 8 and that just looks like Optimus arm and blade to me..the ship thing that we seen Shia and Rosie on in pics is what is on Optimus back it sure isn't a trailer I'm not believing that..

    ReplyDelete
  96. The thing on Optimus' back looks NOTHING like the ship thing we see Shia and Rosie standing on.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'm wondering if those ships belongs to the Quintessons?

    ReplyDelete
  98. If you watch the video in slow motion you can see that Primes jet packs are painted the same as him with flames when he lands and spins around.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Now that we know that the main new bad guy is Shockwave, I doubt that the Quintessons are going to be brought into the mix. That said, one does wonder where the hell all those ships were back when The Fallen was trying to conquer Earth in the last film. In hindsight, it may have been useful to have brought them along.

    ReplyDelete
  100. hopefully BB can talk in this one

    ReplyDelete
  101. I am 100% with you regarding BB talking. That radio sound clip crap is getting old.

    Also, I noticed that in the still photo of Lazerbeak, the right side of the photo depicts an old lookinbg ferris wheel, which I found quite odd for it's randomness.

    Also, we've been told that the Chicago mega-battle is the climax of the movie. The photos show that all those ships are bombing the city either just before sunrise or just after sunset since it is dark but not night. So, the battle scenes with the Osprey's and Prime etc. are likely the next day (or later that same day if the ships arrived before sunrise). Thus, it seems that Prime, BB, and Ratchet survive at least until the end of the movie. That said, the scene of Ironhide and the Dreads contains no ships, no damage, and no smoke in the air. So, either those three fight off on their own, or that fight takes place at a different time in the movie than the mega-battle. I'm thinking that the loser (or losers) of that fight doesn't live to see the mega-battle.

  102. wow, Brawl's back.

    ReplyDelete
  103. if u look close, its longhaul and barricade that optimus attacks in his mech suit, slow it down n ull see it

    ReplyDelete
  104. "The "dark of the moon" is defined as a phase (approximately three days) when the light of the moon is obscured, and thus absent (i.e. a no-moon time), and precedes the new moon and the beginning of a new lunar cycle. Symbolically, it represents a time of inner stillness and contemplation, and preparedness for a new beginning."

    I found that from IMDB but it makes sense to me.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I AGREE WITH Tyrant Lizard King !!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Regarding who Optimus attacks in his mech suit, the first one is definately a Long Haul clone. A still shot of the second one is not so clear. While it appears that the right hand/wrist is at least partially composed of a car tire a la Barricade, the rest of the model does not look much like him, especially the color scheme. Now, if Barricade has a new alt mode, then I'm with you that it is indeed Barricade. I still theink that the last bot that Optimus attacks in that clip is a Grindor/Blackout clone based on the accompanying sounds, but it is hard to tell if the actual robot model supports my theory since it is blurry and you can only see part of it.

    ReplyDelete
  107. -ep-86-
    Laserbeak is attacking Simmons u can clearly see that white car with the sunroof right before the end of that shot..this teaser got me hyped even more..Sam is riding with Epps in that old school muscle car when they are entering the city...

    ReplyDelete
  108. ok that jetpack on Prime is another transformer because that thing drops of his back n i think i saw it moving. So im going to say its silverbolt. But this movie is about to rock the summer Hands down.

    ReplyDelete
  109. that isn't another transformers on prime's back. it u pause it about 0:23 or just watch his spinning in slo mo, u can see the prime's red and blue flames on the jet pack

    ReplyDelete
  110. Ummm I could be wrong on this but I'm pretty positive that the spinning armed thing is Soundwave. The arms are the tenticles you see in ROTF. As is the body if you compare it to the scene when he attachs himself to the satalite or releases Ravage.

    The "Lazerbeak" character looks like the Cybertron series Lazerbeak with fans in wings. Pretty cool.

    I'm guessing that the "jetpack" is still the parts from Jetfire, which he keeps where....? In his trailer. I think this idea has already been out there and I like it. The trailer its self probably doesnt transform I'd imagine, but who knows.

    The idea of clones makes sense don't get me wrong, but like many i am not a fan. I would not mind if the movie was centered around the Transformers, like it is in the rest of the Transformer universe, but its not. The movies are about Sam, other humans,and then some aliens with minimal character developement or dialog. Because of this you just have a bunch of nameless robots really that we get stupid one liners from.

    Why are the movies weak in general to me? Awesome robot action that is NOT backed up with awesome character dialog or developement. This movie will probably break records and be entertaining to watch but as far as continueing to develope or push forward in a good way the characters we love or even respecting the characters we love....it will fail like the first two in my opinion. Im not a hater. I love these films and the rest of the TF universe but story and respect for the character wise its how i see it.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Excuse me, but do any of you have an extra pair of underwear?

    I just watched the trailer for the 30th time and I believe I finally splooged a moundful of manly testicle juice all over my insides.

    It's kinda stinky, sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  112. It's got like, you know, a diesel-ly tinge to it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  113. so this is my third attempt at posting .... i think you guys are a bit over anxious, ya the trailer was fun to watch but so was the last one. And the last movie stunk. I am still hoping the space shuttle and its docking will become omega supreme! I hope this one has a real story and plot. The days of explosions only pleasing the crowd are over.

    ReplyDelete
  114. How i saw the last clip...

    Prime flying. Bee to the left. Ratchet is shooting a drone. Devestator/brawl clone. More clones. And int the back left corner it does look like to me to be Shockwave but it could be Blackout/Grinder clone, a drone, or anyone else.

    When prime lands I see a Brawl/Devestator body on ground, Longhaul in back, he shoots a drone, then punch/shoots a Sideways clone blowing it up, and the swords another bot I cant make out.

    What my eyes saw at least

    ReplyDelete
  115. THIS MOVIE IS GONNA ROCK YOUR WORLD!!! IF THIS MOVIE IS NOT THE MOVIE OF THE YEAR THEN THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS WORLD!!


    EPIC EPIC AND MORE EPIC.


    The autobots are going to need all Airealbots to take down that army. Wonder how many Decepticons are inside those ships.

    ReplyDelete
  116. if you freeze it right after optimus lands, you can see long haul (the big green dump truck from rotf) or some type of constructicon of the same nature and optimus ripping on him with his trailer jet

    ReplyDelete
  117. This movie is a Battle Of Los Angeles ripoff. Bay thought he was doing "Battle Of Chicago" and went thru with it... and the Rosie girl is pathetic enough on that single shot,really what was Bay telling her there? Perhaps "you have to look like Megan Fox"? Well, she doesn't and it shows.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Yup, definitely 'Long Haul', 'Barricade' and 'Blackout' that Prime pwns !!!

    As a UK fan our Super Bowl coverage doesn't include the US commercials. Thank god for the internet. Did/do the commercials air on the Jerry/Jumbo-tron in Dallas during Super Bowl? That TF spot would have looked amazing on a screen bigger than IMAX. They should show movies there...

    ReplyDelete
  119. D***! S***! F***'n FANTASTIC! CAN NOT WAIT! Brawl is back?, Shockwave, Fallen is back?, Laserbeak, Longhaul,? does that mean Devastator back?, & was that Omega Supreme too? I thought Jetfire died and his most to all his parts got destroyed after Jet prime fought Megatron on TF2? If the bring back some old bots they need to bring back Barricade, Sideswipe and Arcee, Jazz. I think this might be the big one, the War Begins! Bring in EVERYONE! Bring in dead TF back, and bring the TF that are still alive and bring in all the TF that are not on the big screen yet.

    ReplyDelete
  120. After 30 sec of teaser all I can think is, WHAT THE HELL is wrong with Rosie's lips and nose? She just ruined the teaser

    ReplyDelete
  121. 5:20 AM, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha just ignore her

    ReplyDelete
  122. i see barricade or sideways i dont no but i see

    ReplyDelete
  123. The Quintessons are sinister robotic creatures with five sided heads, each side with a different face, including the face of death. These tentacled beings, who travel on beams of energy, are cruel and emotionless, and the creators of all the Transformers on Cybertron millions of years ago...those ships have tentacles

    Oh no.... Not another scene of Prime using a jetpack ala Revenge of the Fallen.... :(

    ReplyDelete
  127. @Dilma: as some people that played extra on set in Chicago confirmed, Rosie is a disgrace to the movie, she can't act and she is not hot.
    Bay should have cast a real actress since he is out of shape and can't cast a girl hotter than Megan Fox.
    He did a terrible mistake when he fired her.
    And worse is that Rosie is playing new Sam Witwicky girlfriend.. which is enough to break continuity and characters development from the first two movies completely.

  128. Those strange looking ships certainly have a Quintesson-like feel about them. And the smaller ones look very much like the ship Shia and Rosie were climbing around on.

    I don't think that tentacled robot in the street is Soundwave. If you pause it at the right moment, you can see a huge fanged mouth at the centre of it. To me it looks like some large robotic burrowing animal. Also, Soundwave was dark in color, but this one looks more silver colored.

    And then it's the clones. I guess they've kind of made a statement with the identical looking dreads (black SUV's), saying that decepticon clones are a natural concept in these movies. The practical reason is of course to reduce budget and time constraints in the production.
    What I can't understand is why they don't change the clones colors. That should be fairly easy to do from a technical viewpoint, and it would underline the fact that they are clones, and not former dead characters returning for no reason.

  129. 1st Off...The Sandworm Thing Was Scorpiknok & I Screamed When I Saw Lazerbeak, My Buds Called Me A Nerd But I Didn't Give A Damn....GREAT TRAILER #1. Would Love It More If The Yellow Guy In The Teaser Was Unicron & If Ultra Magnus &/Or Blaster Was ALSO In It! BTW...Is Silverbolt Still In The Roster For This Film? Thanks...ZaZu!

  130. The ROTF superbowl spottv also blow my mind the first time when i saw it (demolisher ...and other things) but i was extremly desapointed with the movie so i prefer to wait and see other trailer (in april i think?) and not be so exited because yes the disatre who was ROTF learned me a lot !

    ReplyDelete
  131. @2/07/2011 7:51 AM
    how can the giant burrowing thing even possibly be scorpinok, it's tentacles/arms/whatever-the-fuck-they-are seem to bee three times the size of him, plus he got crushed by jetfire at the end of ROTF
    also, yes jetfire is till more than likely in the movie
    but guys, just bcause silverbolt has been the only one announced, due to being voiced by uncle phil, doesn't mean there isn't more airealbots than just him, also why couldn't an airealbot's (only one out of the entire movie) sole purpose be to drop off optimus in battle then go fight offscreen. Also to whoever says they see blue and flame red on the jet, your just seeing either optimus, the flames around optimus, or both. He is spinning at very great speed rate, so it's a litle difficult to see everything in the frame, especially with everything going on.

  132. okay i accidently fluked in my comment, i'm in a hurry, and i really hate my computer
    i meant silverbolt is still more than likely in the movie

    if u download the trailer and watch it frame by frame u can clearly see the prime's flames on the jets. i downloaded it from appletrailers (1080p version) and used quicktime. trust me, u can clearly see the red & blue flames on the jet pack

    okay taking a second look at high resolution frame-per-frame, i do see a little red on the jet, i don't however see any blue in any frame, and from what i could see the red was not in optimus's flame pattern, it very well could have been in a flame pattern, but it wasn't optimus's
    and also why would the jet be the same color pattern as optimus anyways, even if it was just a jet pack, he has no need to look stylish in battle

  138. I just went frame by frame and I honestly do see the blue paint/flames on parts that are not actually optimus's body, but on his "jetpack" thing.

    Also, if you pause it at 21 seconds, I noticed another decepticon laying on the ground after "Ratchet" shoots him down.

    And if you pause at 22 seconds, you see Optimus landing ontop of Brawl.

  139. I love the way everyone is complaining about 'recycling' bots... Look at the original G1 toys!! Or even your newer toylines for TF... how many repaints/recycles were there representing different TF's? Yet, for the films, everyone bitches? I suppose some people just have to find something to bitch about...
    For the record, I loved the 1st film, hated the 2nd, but have high hopes for this one...
    Also, I've been a fan of TF since the beginning (I was a kid during the G1 era)... Love my G1, and don't mind the bayhem either.

  140. Is Laserbeak confirmed or just speculation based on the trailer? Could be a Bay-version of Sky Lynx (used to transform into a shuttle and the form vaguely resembles him). Swoop would be interesting. I think that the dinobots could work in Chicago since the largest T-Rex skeleton is on display at the museum of natural history in the immediate area where the fight takes place. Would be interesting to see a autobot crash through the building, scan the t-rex images-bones, and become Grimlock. Fanboy speculation... but fun.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Anyone else notice that the Skyline of Chicago is mirrored in the background of the scene with the jumpers and the Osprey.

    And yes, Rosie looks a little odd.

    However, still this is possibly the most GANGBANG'NISTIC trailer ever.

    That is an awesome idea for Grimlock... I had been wracking my brain for a way they could do him and make sense. And that makes PERFECT sense!!!

  144. 1.I'm wondering if the Tentacles is a Machine brought by Shockwave to harvest Energon, or it could be a Squid from the planet of Junk? (TF:TM still best Movie yet)
    2. Prime's Jetpack is Removable. Deal with it. It May have been Upgraded a little so it may look a little different.
    3.Bringing in "Carli" is not Ruining continuity, it's how it should have always been. Megan CAN'T ACT. She is about 45% of what was wrong with the last two films.
    4. If MB was to have every single Decepticon a different ALT mode, the Film would cost Trillions, Save money, use what you got. Most drones Look the same anyway. Heavy Units get to be Tanks and Construction Equip Smaller Units are Cars. Yes, Changing Colors would be nice, but remember that Rampage was Yellow till Release date?
    5.New Autobots shown: 0
    6.New Decpicons shown: Besides "Laserbeak" and as I'm gonna refer to till more info "The Squid" all that was shown was the SUV's "Crankcase,Dreads" and Multiple Clones
    7. There is No 7
    8.You Can't bring back the Dead. No Jazz, No Fallen, No Jetfire (Just Jet-Prime)As We know, "Arcee" not be dead. We Only saw two Of her "Minds" attacked. Rachet could have fixed them up and her "Mind" from the surviving one could have rebooted them. After all, this Movie must take place a few years later. Barricade was killed At the Freeway, It was stated sometime ago that the Movie Adaptation Comics are "Canon" to the Film as it was written from the script.

    ReplyDelete
  145. If you look extremely closely at the tentacle thing, for a split second it looks like there were fins or something that looks reminisent to a missile head. But then again I could only see a split second of it, not sure.

  146. And I'm not Saying that the First movie was Bad. Could have used a little bit more, but For the Most Part it was Great. ROTF Though, Great On-Scene things happening. but Very Very Poor Script. (I understand Writers Strike)I Would have waited a few Months for a decent Script to be written. But In Transformers, WE DON'T NEED TO SEE MEGAN'S BOOBS. We Came to see Cars Turn to Robots and Fight. Not Slutty Poor Actress. So Lets hope MB doesn't overdo it with Rosie, Use her as an Actress, not as Something to look at. And If you Do, Then Just Slap on some Skin tight jeans to Shia, and make him run around in a wife beater. (Not Meant in a Gay way, just as a statement)

    actually in the commentary for ROTF the writers said they killed of all three arcees

    ReplyDelete
  148. Hopefully in this movie, Rosie will stay out of the way so the scenes can move along, unlike Megan Fox slowing Sam down. Besides, didn't you notice her holding Lennox's hand in ROTF? and the way she looked at him in slow-mo over Sam's body? Mikaela obviously would leave Sam so I would understand the part of the plot. SHE IS A SLUT and I'm glad she's gone. I totally agree with you James2170.
    I was getting tired of seeing enourmous cleavage, mutated lips, and a bad tan with robots who just so happened to be at war in the background. Admitedly,Rosie's lips are distracting, but she couldn't be any worse than Megan Fox was. At least she has her parts covered.

    ReplyDelete
  149. @Anonymous 2/07/2011 9:39 AM: you have some serious issues and you didn't understand anything about characters of the first two movies. Mikaela Banes with Lennox? What drugs did you get? Did you have a dream? Do you like fat ugly girls and you hate both the actress and the character?
    You need help, seriously. Nothing of what you said ever happened on the first two Transformers movies and official novels.

    ReplyDelete
  150. I am interested to find out the reasoning behind Chicago being the Decepticons point of attack. As you can tell from the trailer, the attack takes places over a relatively lengthy period of time as there is footage at both night and day. I wonder what happens to cause it to be Chicago?

    ReplyDelete
  151. I agree with everyone who thinks the Quintessons will play a major part in this story. All the ships with tentacles seem to give them away as part of it. As for the "squid" with fangs I think that might be "The Dweller" which predates the Transformers themselves. It was a creation of the Quintessons before they created other mechanical life. If it is the Dweller that is one real baddie...

    No. The Tenticle on Shockwave is only one. And from what the Figure shows is that it's used to power his gun or something. also, Shockwave only has one. (and it may not be a big kicker, but those are silver, figure is black)

    ReplyDelete
  154. i mean why would robotic ships have tentacles? it is the quint for sure i would guess...they want to kill all transformers if you read the origi, etc

    ReplyDelete
  155. The "dweller" is a very good call, I just read about it, you can see a transformer type ship above bumblebee opposed to the tentacled ships of the quint...so maybe the transformer ships etc take on the quint who sent the dweller down to the earth.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Doubt there are Quintessons. If there are Quintessons then there is Unicron too.
    And what Autobots got to fight them back? Only Optimus Prime in supercharged mode with Jetfire pieces? He would get easily destroyed by Decepticons and Quintessons all alone.
    We know there is Silverbolt so at least Superion and all the Aerialbots must be in the movie otherwise Autobots got no chance to win and unfortunately it's unlikely that Bay would go with a tragic ending with Earth taken by Decepticons and 80% of the population either killed or enslaved and all Autobots destroyed.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Then what were all the tentacled ships? Dont forget the ship on the moon....that could turn out to be a big part of everything...like being rejuvinated with all the top autobots coming back at the end of the movie...I dont know...but tentacled ships is a clear giveaway....im not ognna change my mind...and that thing looks just like the "dweller" would look like...to me anyway

  163. All the haters need to take a deep breath and realize this was only a TEASER trailer. saying this movie's going to be a disappointment just because the last one was is stupid logic. Bay's already made it clear he's well aware the last movie failed on several levels, and by the looks of it he's trying his hardest to leave the memory of it in the dust (and debris).... so give him a break! If you can make a better movie, DO IT! Put away the keypad, get up off your lazy butt and go create something... then let other slackers mindlessly slash it on a blog someplace. Until then, SHUT UP!

  167. Last anonymous, learn what a teaser trailer is before you comment on it. It aired during the Super Bowl for a reason, and it shows battle scenes for a reason. Would you like to see 30 seconds of some poetic dialogue, perhaps? Maybe some sunsets or birds chirping or a hot dog vendor making smalltalk with a customer? Duh, it's Transformers, and the story involves MASSIVE battles, so it makes sense to me that the teaser shows only that. In 30 seconds, there's not lots of time for anything else.

    And the slut comment? Classy.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Mcat,

    I'm not saying this next movie WILL be better, just that pre-judging it based on the last movie or a 30-second Super Bowl trailer is ridiculous. Having seen firsthand some of the CRAZY amount of work that's gone into making TF3, and now seeing a glimpse of what the final product will look like, I won't be surprised at all if this one's better. Really, my whole point is that if anyone out there can pick up a megaphone, direct hundreds of people in the busiest part of one of the world's largest cities for weeks on end, and end up with something even CLOSE to what Bay does, then they should quit ragging on his achievement and PROVE they can do better. I agree with you that Bay saying it's better doesn't automatically make it better... TF2 was a mess, but there were still some gems underneath all the crap. The scene of Devastator assembling itself, or the forest fight with Optimus vs. Megatron, are amazing accomplishments on their own. The Chicago battle scenes look incredible already, and we've only seen a few seconds of them.

    Pros
    -Epic battles (this one will most likely not disappoint).
    -Awesome CGI (pretty amazing visuals in general)
    -Peter Cullin as OP
    -Cool cars and other vehicles

    Cons
    -Very little respect for character developement of bots
    -Very little respect to building a repectable story
    -Acting or scripts are terrible
    -Clones and drones (at least the way they are introduced)

  178. To Anonymous above at 2:38PM, just because someone has an opinion different than yours, that automatically makes them affiliated with the movie? I agreed with Pixel that it's ridiculous to judge a movie based on a 30 second trailer. Granted the second movie's trailer looked good also, but you can't make the same assumption that the movie will be bad. The only way to know if it is bad is to watch it when it comes out.

    Could this be Ironhide?? ( based on the above clip, it certainly could be) Lord knows we have been waiting for him to do more then just look good for 2 movies now...and if it is him...will it be an ultimate sacrifice or will he live another day?

  190. Here is an observation, I knew I recognized part of this.

    The part around 22 seconds in the trailer is this scene below, note the flipping red car. You can actually see the truck with the camera rig on it that filmed this scene (assuming they didn't re-shoot)
    http://www.youtube.com/user/CRT708#p/a/u/1/ujv2g18203c

    On the second video here, you can see the base jumpers landing right next to that same red car.

    ReplyDelete
  193. You know, looking at it closer it looks like there are two camera rigs in the video, one on the truck and one on a dolly of some sorts.

    If you watch the trailer closely, pay attention to the red car, the trailer shifts back in time slightly at the 26 second mark with the rolling red car spinning again and a slightly wider angle on the shot. It probably the two cameras.

    ReplyDelete
  194. Those spinning arm things someone posted about is not shockwave but the drillbot!

  195. @Natalie: she is in the movie because Michael Bay really screwed it up this time. She is his worst lead female casting to date. She always got hot girls that male viewers would die for and female viewers would kill to look like them... BUT this Rosie.. geez.. what the heck was Michael Bay thinking? He really can't see that she just doesn't work in front of a camera? She is a topmodel all they want and she did commercials and fashion shows BUT being the female lead character in a movie like this replacing really hot Megan Fox sex symbol and even playing new Sam Witwicky girlfriend... WELL, it's something that she doesn't have the looks to achieve in the first place, and she can't even act a little bit... which makes her a real disgrace.
    Michael Bay didn't think at all.

    ReplyDelete
  196. Megan Fox as a sex symbol... HA!!!
    But really, I'm getting sick of hearing about the actresses and how Rosie sucks, blah blah blah. From the looks of it, Sam won't even be with her for most of the movie. She's probably only introduced, split up, then Sam finds her at the end. Most likely not as much screen time as Mikaela, but that will be a good thing.

    ReplyDelete
  197. Hahaha, this is a completely awesome trailer, I could care less whether Megan or Rosie is whatever blah blah, giant robots fighting and transforming amidst destruction beats all. Ready to watch the first two, see it in 3D, see it in 2D, then have it on Blu-Ray. Then play Mass Effect 3 until the Avengers comes out.
