'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' Teaser Trailer Storms Online
The first teaser trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon has arrived online, and right away you can tell that this installment feels different (maybe more serious?) from the previous two. It's a teaser, yes, but it's a two-and-a-half-minute teaser that recreates Neil Armstrong's iconic moon landing in 1969, but instead makes it seem as if NASA had ulterior motives that included heading to the dark side of the moon to inspect an alien spacecraft.
Upon scoping out the spacecraft, we can briefly see what looks to be Transformers inside, and as the camera moves around we eventually find our way to the face of a new Transformer who may or may not be Alpha Trion, one of the original 13 Transformers, and apparently a father-figure to Optimus Prime. In some versions of Transformers, he is the appointed guardian of Cybertron, which basically means he's like a Transformers God.
Assuming it is Trion, then we should expect this Transformers movie to really delve into the mythology of the Transformers moreso than before. In a recent interview with Collider, director Michael Bay admits this is definitely his last Transformers film, but says he leaves the story open for others to delve in. "I think this has gotta be it. I think someone else will take the torch from here." … "There's a couple of things that are left open. I think you'll see some finality to this, you know we've made it very clear that when things die they die now. They're not magically being brought back." … "The nice thing about Transformers is that you've got so many stories to tell, you've got Cybertron. It's just that I don't think you could do it again with Shia and everybody, I think it's time to move on."
Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think. Transformers: Dark of the Moon hits theaters on July 1st, 2011.
