The first clip from Transformers: Dark of the Moon has gone online. Does it feature robots punching each other? Robots coming in from outer space? Robots punching each other as they come in from outer space? None of the above. Instead we see Carly (Rosie Huntingon-Whiteley) leading her boyfriend Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) around her “Starship Enterprise”-like workspace and introducing him to her boss (Patrick Dempsey). The boss shows off how successful he is, how handsome he is, Sam notices that Huntington-Whiteley is a supermodel, and promptly wets himself. Okay, that last part isn’t true, but you can smell his insecurity. You wonder why Sam just doesn’t say “Yeah, I saved the world a couple times with my giant robot friends, but those little trophies are nice.”
Hit the jump to check out the clip. The film also stars Josh Duhamel, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, John Turturro, Frances McDormand, Peter Cullen, and Tyrese Gibson. Transformers: Dark of the Moon opens in 3D on July 1st.
