Guns! Robots! Explosions! Robots! Megan Fox! Robots!

You guessed it, Michael Bay and this summer’s super blockbuster, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen are coming at you fast and furious and we have two new TV spots to show you.

About a week and a half ago, Screen Rant reported on the five new Transformers 2 TV spots at that time and one of them showed a pile of new footage ending with Optimus pointing his big gun at the viewer to finish off an enemy. That one spot was pretty exciting and hinted at what we’ll be seeing this time around from Michael Bay.

Before that, we saw a pair of new images for the movie with Optimus fighting two giant Decepticons while dual-wielding a pair of his arm-sword-things, something that strangely appeared only once for a brief scene in the first film.

Today’s two teasers up the ante a little more and we see Optimus not only showing off his gun again, but having TWO of them. This guy is crazy and I love it!

I suppose when you think about it, Optimus is the biggest Autobot (that we know of…) and the majority of the bad guys are bigger than him so he needs something to balance it out – Two swords and two guns are his way of doing that.

Watch and enjoy:

There’s definitely more action to be had this time around and these most recent TV spots get me pumped for the flick. If you need to get more of your Transformers fix, check out Screen Rant’s other post today on Wheelie and Soundwave (featuring a new clip from the movie!)

What do you think of the star of this film, Optimus Prime?

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters on June 24, 2009.

  1. Now that’s what I’m talking about!

  2. A lot of stuff blowin’ up REAL good….I’m there.

  3. Hey “hater” haters – these clips actually look GOOD to me, OK? 8)

    I like how Bay has pulled back the camera on the fight scenes and I pray that the dumb-assed humor only rears its ugly head once or twice during this film. I’d love to see a balls to the wall kick-ass movie this time.


  4. Doesn’t look any better to me than any of Bay’s previous movies. Looks like the same old, boring routine.

    Probably a good thing I’m planning to wait for the DVD.

  5. Two blades was awesome. Two guns made it more awesomer (yeah, I don’t care if that’s a word :P). Thanks for the heads up. Just only a few more weeks.

  6. Is it just me, or at the end of the 2nd teaser, does it look like Megatron impales Prime with his right hand / claw?

  7. Vic, glad to see you still have some taste! :D

    These trailers look awesome. They did a good job showing a few Optimus scenes to get people interested – he really is the heart and soul of the Transformers franchise.

  8. @peeps
    I thought I saw it the other way around with prime and starscream but I could have missed it.

  9. @vic
    Don’t get your hopes up with the kiddy humor – it’s not going away and it won’t be just a couple scenes.

  10. Liked both of them…..I’m sure the humor will be more juvenile as the first film.

  11. I don’t know why you people keep complaining abut the “kiddy humor”. Remember this is based on a kids cartoon series and toys. I can’t wait to see it in all its glory and “kiddy humor.” And see Optimus Prime die.

  12. Hey, Did Optimus spitout a tooth? awsome

  13. I don’t look at authors of these articles much, but is there generally a difference of opinion with Transformers 2 amongst the screen rant team as each article seems to change from the film being brilliant to sin against God.

  14. @ EnglishGavz,

    lol, partly. Vic was not a big fan of the first at all, but myself, Kofi, Ross and a few of the newest members of the team enjoyed it.

    I don’t like a few elements of the movies and I think they can be easily improved but I am still very excited to see them.

  15. Complain complain blah blah blah. If you don’t like transformers then don’t see it. Simple as that.

  16. Looks cool. Far better than anything else released this year in the genre (except Trek of course)

    Now get Bay to make Superman please

  17. Wonderful. From that review (non-spoiler):

    “Here’s the thing. Revenge Of The Fallen is a kids’ movie; the secret to enjoying it as an adult is to unlock the ten-year-old within. It is, in common parlance, completely and utterly retarded. The juxtaposition between hardcore military war movie and s***** Saturday morning cartoon feels downright bizarre at times.”

    And that is from a glowing, positive review of them film.

    Oh well… not that I’m terribly surprised, but I was hopeful.


  18. Lets hope Prime is not a pussy in this one..

  19. Lets hope Prime is not such a pu$$y in this one..I wanna see him unleashed..

  20. @ greenknight333,


  21. Wait, a positive review of the movie called it “completely and utterly retarded”???? Um… lol? Yep, got high hopes for this one… :-D

  22. ken J wft u on bout seriously ?
    personally i recon they cud hve left out the stupid one lined jokes, and the whole bumblebee buisness

  23. Damn, I did go on and on and on there didn’t I?? lol :-D

  24. i don’t put a lot of stock into reviews on action movies. all i want to see is special effects of robots fighting each other. i don’t an award winning script or acting. just kick ass robot action. all the trailers seem to give me that.

  25. @vic

    lol… hey man maybe it was a message to mcg about the whole “measuring contest” that they had with each other… then again maybe it is juvenile but when you wrote that i couldn’t help but to laugh. Great now i’m going to be looking for Decepticon testicles on the big screen…lol. Vic i just have to ask you one thing… do you have to go out and see this movie? i mean why don’t you let rob or kofi see it and do the review. That way you don’t have to argue on a 200+ thread on why you didn’t like the humor and all of this… you could simple say you didn’t see and you don’t care to see it… but maybe thats just me. Same goes for the people that are not going to see it but will comment on the review thread and that somehow they were “dragged” to the theater to go see it.

  26. Are you guys serious? They are not testicles, they’re tentacles – lol.
