Transformers debuts new footage with Daytona 500 TV spot

Feb. 21, 2011by:

Yesterday in Daytona, Florida, TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON stars Josh Duhamel and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and director Michael Bay served as honorary grand marshals for the Daytona 500. So it's no surprise that during the race, Paramount ran a new :30 TV spot for the film that showed off some new footage and some new robots.

Most of the footage we're seeing from the film at this point centers around the destruction of a major city (it was filmed in Chicago but I'm not sure what city it's supposed to be in the movie). What new stuff we get in this trailer is our first look at the Stunticons, three Nascar-themed Transformers (one red, one blue and one green). They're traditionally Decepticons and were named Motormaster, Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown and Wild Rider but it's unclear if any of those names or their affiliation will carry over to the film.

Check out the new TV spot for TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON below.

this must take place in another dimension

i wonder how they will replace megan fox's character with rosie's. it's funny b/c the part when Sam is telling her "youre gonna be fine" she's interchangable with megan fox.

i mean wasn't that exact same shot/scene in the both of the earlier ones?

Correction Mike

Those three NASCAR bots are called the Wreckers. I think this movie is going to be amazing! I can't wait to watch it on the 80 foot IMAX screen in my city!

I know TF2 wasn't the greatest film out of the two, but I had fun, and I think that's all it matter for these films, so I'm proud to say I'm excited to see this

wow are you guys serious?

This is the SAME as the TF2 trailer. ONLY showing action shots, slow mo, and "cool" transformer shit.

Are we forgetting the horrid story, acting, and FUCKING TERRIBLE comic relief that is attached to these heaping shit bombs? This movie will be JUST like the 2nd one, if not worse. Michael Bay doesn't know how to "tone" down sequels.

Looks pretty good.

@rcgpeake

Um... You DO know that Optimus Prime has had lips in other Transformers media outside of this?

From the G1 comics, to Beast Wars (possibly the best Transformers show to date). He even has lips behind his mouth plate on the 25th Anniversary figure if you remove it (because... he has them).

So, giving Prime a mouth in Bays flicks is nothing new.

Anyway, I'll see this. I liked the first, hated the 2nd but 3 seems pretty cool.

Beast Wars the best? Interesting you say that, an old friend of mine said the same thing. Maybe I should go back and watch the whole series. I only watched a couple episodes and didn't give it a chance. I assume you mean the storyline is intriguing.

Lips

Everysince i heard the were making TF1 i could harly wait, but then Optimus Prime had a mouth it killed it for me, I dont need a new idea remake the cartoon movie or pick a couple of the feature length episodes with the dino bots and make them. I love transformers but this has no appeal to me and Im VERY SAD to say that.

I cant wait cus in about 10yrs they may reboot TF and make them good.

i don't know what ya'll are thinking

but i think TF3 is looking pretty badass from all the footage we've seen thus far. Nothing looks disappointing at all. i'm still very confident that this will be the best from the trilogy. i'll be there opening night in imax :)

No thank you. Visual FX and pyrotechnics rarely wow me anymore plus Shia's "acting" is getting old and annoying.
