Here’s the awesome Transformers trailer that aired during the American Idol finale. In this one we get to hear Bumblebee speak (highly cool), check it out:
I saw this new Transformers trailer when I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean last night. I’m drooling over this movie more and more.
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:
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.
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.
Two new posters have been released for the sweet new Transformers Movie due out in 2007.
On another note, the voice of Optimus Prime will be done by Peter Cullen, the original voice for Transformers: Ironhide, Optimus Prime, Slugslinger, Streetwise, Wingspan and Nightstick. (and oddly enough, the voice actor for Eeyore in Winnie the Pooh as well as a shlew of other animated shows/movies). Awesome…just freaking awesome.
The Transformers Exclusive Teaser has been announced! w00t! (I first heard about it at Rated-M) You can head on over to the Official Transformers Movie Site and see it for yourself. Sexy stuff…but its definately a teaser. The sweet new movie is due out July 4, 2007.
