Nope, this isn’t the Superbowl ad, this is the brand new Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen trailer that premiered attached to Friday the 13th.
I was not a fan of the first film, not by a longshot, but I guess there’s always hope. Michael Bay has stated that Transformers 2 will be a lot darker than the first one, and personally I welcome that. I hated the stupid humor bits from that film and will be pleased if they’re missing from this one.
One thing I also disliked from the previous film was the insane complexity of the robots and the fact that the shots were so close-in and quick cut that it was hard to tell what the heck was going on. I’m not sure if that has been addressed here, but I have a feeling it’ll be more of the same when it comes to the robot action sequences: Too close-in and too many quick-cuts.
Having said that, I’ll admit this trailer does get my interest up for this film. Check it out:
You can get HD versions over at Yahoo! Movies.
So what do you think? If you’re already stoked for this, I’m sure it only adds fuel to the fire… but if you weren’t a fan of the first one does this trailer make you want to see the sequel?
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opens on June 24th, 2009.
