Transformers Extended Trailer

An extended Transformers Trailer was released a couple of days ago…2.5 minutes of awesome transforming bliss. Here’s the trailer from YouTube:

The poster of the video on YouTube writes:

New 2.5 minute trailer for the Transformers movie, includes plenty of transforms (including a number of fancy manoeuvres by Starscream), although no TF voices.

This video was converted from a large resolution high-def video file, not from a screen capture which some people have posted. (BTW, feel free to blog/link this anywhere, it’s the best trailer yet).

Gives a little more insight to the storyline, including Earth’s reaction to their arrival, and it appears that Bumblebee is not going to have a particularly easy time of it.

A lot of footage we’ve seen before, but plenty we haven’t. This ain’t no cartoon, kids. Looks like we’re talking Transformers with a body-count and major property damage (not just a few dings in a couple of buildings, or a shootout confined entirely to the desert).

Note the arrival of the protoform Transformers (the “asteroids” crashing to Earth) and the use of the classic transform sound (!!) in Optimus Prime’s transformation.

I like the “it’s probably Japanese” crack.

Transformers Movie Trailer

Lately I’ve noticed increased traffic to my Transformers Teaser Trailer post and became extremely excited. Could this mean another trailer? I spoke with Zach last night and he found it over at Yahoo!

Zach writes:

There seems to be a pretty strong human component to this film which is important to me. Additionally, the trailer indicates a good strong amount of action. This is expected and welcome in a Michael Bay film (see Bad Boys). Finally, I really like how the transformers look. The special effects are spot on.

I find myself convulsing from the sheer excitement I have for this movie. I was a huge Transformers cartoon fan when I was little (remember way back then?) and the toys are still awesome. Causing particular excitement is this (somewhat blurry) shot of Bumblebee…he looks simply awesome:

In the trailer, the lines: “Some have come to save us. Most have come to destroy us.” make me super-giddy. The trailer was ballsy and I’m definitely counting down the days till opening night (July 4th, 2007)!

Note: the Decepticon at the top of the post is Blackout.
