Transformers: Dark of the Moon Daytona 500 TV Spot (Updated)

It turns out while Michael Bay, the Wreckers and others were at the Daytona 500, a new TV spot aired for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. It is about half identical to the Super Bowl commercial and half of new scenes. Starscream transforming and landing in front of Sam and Carly, Optimus Prime walking as cartridge pops out of gun toward screen, Sam & Carly moment, a voiceover (probably John Turturro) saying "...years from now they’re gonna ask where were you when they took over the planet", Epps yelling "Run!", Bumblebee in weapon mode, and the Wreckers. If you want to see a little footage of the Transformers crew at Daytona click here. Thanks to Ryan, Sahara, John, Kris, Rakeen and others for the heads-up.

Update: Added above image Pixel Rally's Jeff that show one of the images he photographed with what was shown in the trailer. The image is part of the filming that occured at a Wabash and Lake parking deck in Chicago. Safe to say that bus going boom sequence involves Starscream trying to get Sam. The magic of Hollywood in action.

  11. Rosie is uber ugly with the big lips... Odette Yustman or Lizzy Caplan would've been better subs for Megan Fox.

  12. The Wreckers look badass!

  13. This movie is going to be ridiculous! And I don't wanna hear no more on how people feel Rosie is ugly or pretty! She's in the movie and there's nothing you can do about it. Let's just focus on the actual movie and not the female lead!

    BTW, Prime's blaster looks sick! It's about time!

  14. They would have cast you Rebecca but you're too sexy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I only have one word to say. EPIC!

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Spencer "This movie is going to be ridiculous!"--Yeah, it's going to be silly.. And Rosie on screen looks even sillier indeed. Watching her you don't know if she is a female doll, male doll or both.

  17. Awsome! Can't wait for the movie! This makes you wonder why micheal Bay is not making another movie. He still could do with make megatron into Galvatron. have them build a space bridge to Cyberton. But this movie looks really really good.

  18. Oh no... that nose and lips again.... just ruin it

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Anonymous 2/21/2011 7:39 AM: yeah.. Rosie looks like a badly shaped mannequin.

  20. was there a new trailer with I'm number 4 this weekend?

  21. Oh, come on. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is not ugly, and you all know it. OK, so maybe she's not your type, and you think Megan Fox or some other actress/model is much more beautiful. I have no problem understanding that. I'm not a Rosie fan myself, but to say that she is ugly is just plain stupid. And there is nothing wrong with her nose. Now, of course if these posts are coming from females, we all know what that is about.

  22. Hang on, hang on, hang on !!!

    This is a TRANSFORMERS movie about TRANSFORMING ROBOTS ! Humans are only in the damned thing to reduce costs - 2.5 hrs of pure CGI 'bot action would probably have cost triple the budget. Actors/actresses with low demands were cast so more could be spent on CGI and big-bangs - shouldn't we all be happy about that ?!

    We got treated to Megan Fox in the first 2 movies (not integral to the story, eye-candy nonetheless) who is, for one reason or another, not in this movie - reason irrelevant.

    There now is a replacement for Megan - a lingerie model for one of the most famous lingerie brands ever known. Yet all you folk go on about is "Rosie's ugly, Rosie's rubbish, Rosie can't act", blah blah blah... WHO GIVES A $H!T ?!

    A) she doesn't need to act - just be present as an attractive female as god only knows what you'd all say if there was no female lead/stunner (what would you all you have said if Kathy Bates had got the lead female role ?!)

    B) she's a PANTY model with the likes of Adriana Lima. She ISN'T ugly, go and watch Bay's VS promos on Vimeo... THEN try saying she's ugly. If she was running round Chicago with f##k all on except B&P then I bet you wouldn't be commenting on her in the same way.

    FFS grow-up, accept that we're getting a THIRD live-action film from the franchise we always prayed we would get at least ONE film from !!

    Isn't that enough for all you numbnuts ?!?!

    Just stick to making RELEVANT comments with valid purpose that those of us who use this blog constructively might actually give a **** about and read one day.

    Personally, come 01-Jul, I think any doubters will all be eating their words - simply leaving it at 'holy shit'. Though no doubt there'll be those of you out there insisting Unicron should have been in and would have made it better, blah blah blah - not everyone's going to 100% happy, deal with it.

    And for those who still insist on wasting our time - try http://rosiecantactandisuglyashell.blogspot.com/

  23. Well, Simbatron. You certainly wasted my time.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Starscream looks effed up

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Simbatron: are you on drugs or what? Transformers since G1 had plenty of main human characters. Even just thinking that humans are there just to reduce cost it's plain dumb but dumber is thinking that the Transformers franchise doesn't involve any humans and shouldn't have humans in it. Did you ever watch any Transformers series or did you just play with toys like a little kids not understanding anything about plot and characters,uh?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Simbatron...I agree 100%

    ReplyDelete
  27. Rosie IS fugly. Period. Simbatron you don't know what a pretty lady is.

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Simbatron: Comparing Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to Adriana Lima is really absurd as much as silly. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was born in UK while Adriana Lima is from Brazil. They have nothing in common.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Simbatron...

    I agree with your post. Seems many people here insist on having the last word, no matter how delicately it was put to them. That's another thing we have to accept & deal with :-P

  30. After waiting for 17 months we have finally gotten to see a minute or so of DOTM footage and it’s awesome; Prime in flight and fighting, Bumblebee’s Mech-Tech weapon, Starsceam looking amazing, Chicago being decimated and what looks to be Ironhide’s lONG OVERDUE hero moment and yet people are so preoccupied with Rosie Huntington-Whitely’s looks. When Rosie was cast people said she was too hot to be Sam's new love interest, that he's a nerd and could never land a women so beautiful...now people are calling a Victoria's Secret Angel "fugly". Really?
    Me, I'm focused on the bad-ass robot action of these teasers, the looks of the human cast.

    ReplyDelete
  31. To all the fucking ladies that complain about Rosie, why dont you post some pics of yourselfs so all of us can see if your hot or not. All these girls that complain are probably bigger than a cow. End of story.

    ReplyDelete
  32. -Ep-
    Too many ppl complaining.. seriously if u don't like what you see don't waste your time coming in here to complain and don't bother watching the movie...been a fan since the cartoons g1..I've enjoyed the last two movies tf1 was a great intro to the franchise imo tf2 could of been better but I still enjoyed it tf 3 has me hyped up with all this darker feel to it...just hoping it would be a great conclusion to the franchise...

  33. @Simbatron
    Rosie is not there for her acts, ok I can understand that, is obvious, she is there for to be the "eye candy" and that's exactly the problem: she can't act and she can not be the "eye candy" because she is ugly, and don't tell me "she is a victoria's secret model", she is a model for her body not for her face, there are a lot of models who have hot bodys but ugly faces and Rosie is an example.
    Rosie is the perfect butterface ever.
    There are a lot of womens with pretty faces but they can't be models because they are not tall enough. For example,Scarlett Johansson, she is prettier than Rosie, but she can't be a victoria's secret model because she is small, so? that's makes Rosie more beautiful than Scarlett, no right? and when I say Scarlett Johansson I can say Jessica Alba,Natalie Portman and of course Megan Fox, they are smaller than Rosie, but prettier

  35. Most used sentence on this blog:
    "Are you on drugs?"
    Really. You guys keep fighting about the same thing over and over, post after post. It's getting ridiculous now. You sound like a bunch of kids fighting over the dumbest things. GET OVER IT.
    Transformers is and always has been about robots, not people, not women, not "sex symbols", or horny teenage boys. I'm seeing this movie to see the Autobots kick some serious Decepticon ass, not to complain about it.
    That's all I'm going to say, grow up, shut up, and quit fighting over the irrelevant stuff.

  36. The more everyone calls Rosie ugly, the more I find her attractive

    ReplyDelete
  37. Rosie is a hottie and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Get over it overweight girls and guys who wouldn't have a chance in hell. Lizzy and Odette? They have lame resumes, someone new is much better. Bay would never cast them. Rosie got the role time to accept the facts and stop complaining. If you don't like it don't watch it, simple. Rebecca let's see your big ugly ass and thin lips.

    ReplyDelete
  38. @Katrina: if people don't like Rosie and don't watch the movie then it will just flop. More won't watch it worse it will flop.
    @Anonymous 2/21/2011 1:55 PM: you tell others to grow up and you reply like a 5 years old telling that the franchise would have been only about robots with no humans.. geez! You didn't even understand the G1 series then. Did you ever watch anything or did you just focus on robots forgetting plot and characters like a little kid (not that smart little kid maybe) would do?

    ReplyDelete
  39. ^^Oh God, are you never gonna stop with this nonsense?
    Get a life, dude. Move on. You're living in a fantasy.

  40. Guys, if you remember from the first movie, she was a quote, "evil jock concubine." She did nothing but look slutty for the camera. Give it a rest guys, the movie hasn't even come out yet, so you can't judge her until you've seen it, which is still months away. Wait until it's released, and THEN you can be a sissy.

    Don't worry, I got your back ;)

  41. Wow...I didn't know movies about toys could bring out the beast wars in blog posters. At any rate, I sincerely wish the cars had been called the Stunticons, rather than the Wreckers. Even though they can't combine (do they even transform into bots?) I do miss my gestalts.... :-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Did a culling, think got all the Megan Fox comments out. As said before the replacing of Megan Fox is a dead horse. Tired of reading about it.

    However, did leave in the pro and con Rosie comments as they are on topic. To love her or hate her based purely on a few second visuals in two TV spots seems a bit premature to me but each their own.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ok Rosie may have some big lips but she is still attractive and will probably be better at acting than Megan Fox

  44. sam wants to shag her
