First Teaser Trailer and Poster for TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON

     December 8, 2010

Paramount has released the first teaser trailer for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon and it’s extremely well cut and a great teaser.  While many studios love to reveal too much in their trailers and sometimes even in their teaser trailers, this is a perfect example of how to sell your movie without giving it all away.  Also, I love the way it works in a huge moment from the late 60’s and makes it connect with the universe of Transformers.  I don’t want to spoil it…

In addition, I spent three hours yesterday with Michael Bay and he showed me (and a few other reporters) a ton of footage from the 3rd Transformers movie.  In fact, he probably showed us a lot more footage than anyone at the studio expected.  But because he lifted the veil on the story and some of the massive action set pieces, I can tell you with certainty the 3rd Transformers movie looks to be the biggest and possible the best of the trilogy.  He knows the second one wasn’t what it should’ve been and he’s aiming for a huge improvement in terms of story and action.  While he asked us not reveal any spoilers…I saw an action set piece that looks so fraking amazing, even with people firing guns at nothing and some shots just animatics, I was completely invested in the scene and I could follow exactly what they were trying to do.  I was blown away by the footage.  Trust me, the 3rd movie is going to be a huge improvement and you have never seen action on this scale.  It also has a story!  Hit the jump for the teaser, the first official image, and a promo poster:
