DOTM Trailer Coming "mid/late April"

Nelson has posted that the first theatrical trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon "...will come around mid/late April." Various unconfirmed rumors has placed the release with Sucker Punch this Friday but the lack of online stories and Entertainment Tonight not advertising one of their sneak peeks pretty much killed that idea. About the only films coming in April that would be a good fit for the trailer is Scream 4 (4/15) and Fast Five (4/29). It seems the best move would be to release with Scream 4 and push theaters to also attach it to Fast Five and Thor (5/6) to maximize audience awareness.

  4. This doesn't surprise me. People seem to forget that the post-production process of editing a film, as well as trying to cut trailers for it at the same time (especially for a film that is as EFFECTS-INTENSIVE as this one), is a TIME-CONSUMING process. Hell, with all the work Bay & Co. have left to do, I wouldn't expect a theatrical trailer until May.

    It all comes down to this : even with all the behind-the-scenes documentaries and magazine articles and interviews available with a simple keystroke, many people STILL don't have a clue of all the different elements involved in film production. They just want things when they want things with no regards for the long hours or armies of production personnel involved.

  5. Im fine with waiting. I dont want all the good stuff shown in the trailers while I wait months and months for the movie, only to realize I've seen most of it already with the trailers.

  6. I just want to see a teaser with humans

  7. I saw the post and he never admitted that the "teaser trailer" was a false statement. It still can be true, I just hope it is.... B-)

  8. what's the point of pushing back the trailer? for that case don't release any trailer until the movie and that's it. captain america's trailer is going to be release later this days and theres is no mistery with that... so what is the mistery with TF3? if they are sure with the product what's the problem of showing it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. To the previous poster: slow down for a second and THINK: is Captain America as effects-intensive as our beloved transforming alien robots franchise? NO. It is not. Comparing the post-production time of Captain America and TFDOTM is like comparing a Lamborghini Murcielago to a Pinto, expecting both of them to run a mile in the same amount of time, and then complaining when you see that the Pinto is losing, when it should have been obvious from the beginning who the likely winner would be (unless the Pinto was souped up, but that's completely beside the point). Think on that.

    What's the point of pushing back the trailer? There hasn't been a official confirmation that the teaser trailer would go international on March 25th... Nothing is being pushed back. We just gotta have some patience.

  11. I'm fine without a trailer... the less I see the more surprises await as I watch the movie. as a matter of fact release the damn movie already

  12. If Bay & Co. (Michael bay & company.. Just so the retards understand what I mean) Don't release a trailer I will shoot myself. I can not wait

    What did Nelson do to you? His just an admin of Bays forum.

  14. I have a hard time believing its a post-production issue...after all Bay showed a chunk of footage to the collectors club at the toy fair. I have a hard time believing they dont have 2 minutes of finished, teaser worthy footage. My guess would be that its a marketing issue.

  15. ^^ I agree with Winton Ray on this one ^^

    I'm, like tf3 above posted, also fine without a trailer. The less you see, the more surprises there are.

    And that's probably the biggest thing. We were spoiled far to much for ROTF with all the different teasers, trailers and tv-spots.

    Bay's own opinion always was, show as litte as you can, to not give away to much, otherwise it can spoil to much. Well, he doesn't want to make the same mistake as with ROTF, I think that's what he's doing now, fine by me.

    But also I agree, it takes rather long for them to release the theatrical trailer.

  17. I'm confident a teaser WILL be coming to us this Friday (25th March). It's been on the cards for a long time now and maybe it's the trailer that was due in May which will be being pushed back a few weeks to some time in April. At least I hope so. Cometh Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  18. If Friday comes and goes without a teaser trailer (really, is that too much to ask?), I guess I'll have to be content with keeping the Nascar and Super Bowl TV spots on loop.

  19. Another confirmation that Transformers3 production is in huge trouble.
    First Michael Bay fired his lead actress that he himself created as the franchise sex-symbol, then he replaced her with a topmodel that is not and can't act a little bit, achieving the destruction of the trilogy at plot and main characters continuity and consistency levels.
    Then Michael Bay sold out to useless 3D gimmick as Paramount CEO told him to.
    Without the 3D they wouldn't have been having so much trouble completing CGI on time. Due to 3D now at ILM they are in a huge mess.
    All of this is going to spell death for the movie. It doesn't look good at all.

  27. BTW, just because Nelson said the trailer will come out April, he could be talking about the thearetical trailer... but i'm not gonna get upset even if he isn't because Bay said theyy are working extra hard on this movie, and it probably isn't the 3D that's taking them a long time to edit, theyy probably want to make sure this movie is perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. My friend @ 3/23/2011 4:56pm...I hope you feel better because he certainly won't stop. He will now accuse you of being a Bay or Paramount employee. If you had responded in a calm, intelligent manner he would've insulted you. He's been doing this for 10 months now; cutting and pasting the same comments regardless of the posted topic. Inciting rage has been his sole contribution to our beloved blog.

  30. I've got an inkling that theatres will erupt in cheers come Friday - Nelson never did write "teaser trailer." ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Does anyone find it weird that we still dont know who is the red ferrari or blue mercedez? We only have a couple more months to go and I am positive we knew everyone in ROTF and how they looked like back in March 2009. This is kinda stupid but also kinda cool at the same time.

    On a side note, enough with the teases. Just give us a trailer already.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think that the teaser trailer will be this Friday. We still need the teaser first before the theatrical trailer (the only one we have is the announcement trailer which is not the same, and the TV spots).

    It says that the theatrical is coming mid-April, so I definitely think the teaser is this Friday.

  33. @Winton Ray: if you and others here had any clue you would have found out that there are more people that don't agree with your childish insults and feel the trilogy being ruined, it's not just a single enemy for you .. and you being paid to insult others trying to silence them it's highly likely otherwise you wouldn't go around insulting anyone in the first place if you got nothing to gain.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @3/23/2011 4:56 PM: So Paramount is paying you to insult people on the 'net,uh? That is a very smart way to promote a movie that is going to ruin the whole trilogy. The 3D gimmick and having fired the lead actress is enough to destroy any franchise, Transformers is no exception and Spielberg doesn't care anymore, he moved on to other projects already.

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Anonymous 3/23/2011 9:37PM...I make no insults and I speak no lies. If, as you say I have "more than single enemy" then that makes at least two people in the world that have too much time on their hands. My friend, I'll make you a gentlemen's bet of $1.00 that when DOTM comes out you'll love it. I know that's a hefty sum to wager but I've been picking up loose change.

    like the movies or not...this "franchise" as you put it, is making a killing and is on FIRE!! Do you have any idea the collective money making power these movies and toy lines have??? pull your head out of your ass young wanker!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. just because the trailer is in april the franchise is dying?
    Oh, let me guess, it's because megan fox is not in the movie?

    What are you talking about?
    please go back to your cave with your Conspiracy theories.

    just to make that clear: megan fox does not belong to this franchise, she was misplaced in the first place, and she wasn't a maincharacter, the maincharacters are still the transformers and the transformers are also "the franchise", not megan fox. killing/fireing her does not destroy the franchise, because she doesn't belong to this franchise.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think Bay has a whole surprise attack planned for the teaser trailer Nelson never denied. People won't know what hit them.

    ReplyDelete
  39. @NHLfan: Megan Fox was misplaced what? So you are telling that Michael Bay that selected and wanted and promoted Megan Fox as the franchise sex symbol on the first two movies was wrong,uh?
    That is a pretty childish naive nonsense statement of yours there. Really, you don't know what the heck you are talking about.
    Obviously you don't like Michael Bay too other than Megan Fox.

    Guys, guys, don't spend anymore of your valuable time reacting to this fool.
    You will never win, he will go on and on until he is dead. That's his only purpose, to raise chaos on sites en everybody getting angry over him.
    According to him, we all are on the paylist of Bay/Paramount and I think that according to him the franchise was dead even before the movies were made. LOL!!!!!!
    If we all together stop reacting to his posts, he'll eventually leave us, hopefully.

    I'll probably get a reaction from him on this and I will not react to that.

  48. How are they going to explain Megan's departure? Any theories? Carly's character looks so much classier than Megan's did. I wonder if she will have the same persona what do you guys think. What if she is a pretender like Alice?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Guys... teaser trailer will be out tomorrow and the theatrical trailer will be in April.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm a huge tf fan but I wish if they introduce a bot or con, they keep them in all the movies until they die. With that being said, once a robot is dead, keep them dead. There are tons of transformers they could use so I don't see the point of raising the dead. Example-long haul should be yellow or red and given a new name in the third instead of having the same color and name.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would LOVE to know the "real" story of what actually went on as to why Megan left. LOL being holywood an all...im sure a lot of crazy sH!t went down...saddly we will probably never know the whole entire truth about it all.

    anyway...enough of that stuff...C'mon with the teaser..or trailer...or somethin !!! Can't wait :D !!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I don't think she left, I truely believe she was fired but I'd love to know the story as well.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Only time will tell what happens with Carly.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I can understand Long Haul being alive, though. Even if his "twin" died in the explosion, his Devastator component still lives. Long Haul makes up Devastators leg, and Devastator was hit ONLY in the chest, so therefore some of the constructicons may still live.

  55. Well todays the day people...will we see a trailer????????

  56. i belive go be a trailer today 25/03 please bay do this for us
