Transformers trailer!!

12.20.2006

UPDATE - Paramount reminds us that the trailer is now available in mind-blowing HD over at the US Yahoo site. Head here to have your jeans soiled.

OK, I gotta give it to Michael Bay. I didn't have much confidence in the fact that the new TRANSFORMERS trailer was "fucking awesome" as he described it. I was pretty sure he thought it was effin awesome but wasn't sure what I'd think. Well he was right. It's flippin awesome. It's not on the US version of Yahoo yet but has shown up on both the UK and French versions. Here is a link to a full-screen version using the Vividas player. Good quality but lacks the playback options of Quicktime (and wouldn't allow me to take screengrabs to put in this article. Click here to head directly to the trailer then come right back to Strike Back with your fellow schmoes. Liked it? Loved it? Hated it??

I'm a huge Transformers fan...always have been. There is nothing remotely "Transformers" about this movie and I'm deeply saddened by it's very existance. The trailer looks awful, Bay is worthless, the actors are worthless...save your nine bucks and stay home.

They look a lot like Bionicles.

That's some sweet CG though.

Not sure about the teenage love theme that seems to be surfacing in the movie.

The only way that would be cool, was if it went anime style and the kid tore out some transformer's brain, and piloted it like a mech, in order to save his girl.

Not too likely though, as far as I know.

Looks like loads of exploding fun though -- I'll see it for sure.

What's wit the idiots that have to state at the bottom of their critique that they liked the Island? As if that somehow adds weight to what you say.

I dug the trailer though. I would of enjoyed some good ol' transformers music but then again it might of sounded corny or maybe they are waiting to add that in later trailers.

Fuck the Island!!

Meh

I have never been into the whole "Transformers" thing. I do really like Michael Bay, though.

One thing i hated is the fact that sound on my Quicktime is not working, and the trailer choked more than Jenna Jameson when i played it in WMP format.

Overall, it looks alright, but not the most epic and spectacular film of 2007, like its being made to be.

*yawns* looks like a typical Bay action flick. I mean, I was a big fan of The Island and all, but this doesn't look that good at all. it looks "meh" at best.

wanted more

So visually that is pretty awesome, typical of Bay (who, after The Island, should be directing music videos).

But seriously, where was the music? Trailer had no momentum. Also, what's with Shia's "Strokes" shirt? Are we going to have to look at that the whole movie?

Am I alone?

I'm curious as to why everybody thinks this will rock so much? The trailer I just saw made it look pretty bad. I'm not a bay basher (I liked the island) but I want to know am I alone thinking this will most definetly suck?

Loved the trailer. Can't wait to see the movie. That being said, the trailer could have been even better. I wanted the music to queue the song we all know and love from our childhood. At least a techno version. Pump that in with just one cresendo instead of the few that were used. Kind of killed the trailer's momentum in some places.

I was weary of the movie because it seemed like it left so much out for the true cartoon I grew up with. Putting that aside, the movie's own

Holy cow, that didn't suck!

As a dedicated hater of the T-formers movie concept, I can honestly say that this not only didn't suck, but actually (gasp) looked kinda cool.

Ok, I'm in...just don't f*** it up later and make me eat my words.

Can I say that I agree 1000% to the "effing awesome" tag to this trailer? MY GOD. In under a minute, I saw and could name my favorites including the always sexy Hot Rod.

Thank you Spielburg and Bay. Thank you!

Yes, Bay really must know what he's doing since his last few films have shown a steady decrease in profit. Maybe people are getting sick of the same old movies in different wrappers. I'd be willing to bet that if this film didn't have the Transformers brand attached and was just some generic space-robot flick, it would tank massively. I suppose we'll see who is closer to correct when the film opens, eh?

Kick Ass

Yet again Bay does what he does best..leaves us wanting more after one of his trailer. I laugh at all these clowns saying "MEH" & That it as bad trailer. You didnt like it because Prime and MEgs arent fighting??Are you stupid, dont you want that for the big screen where we can appreciate it more?? If they would have shown them then you would be saying "WHY DID HE SHOW US THE GOOD STUFF??" What ever..I think the haters should drop dead..You dont want to see it..simple, dont..go see Die Hard

Since this is multiple choice, I LIKED IT. Didn't love it, didn't hate it but I wanna see more of the T-Formers. I agree with whoever said there were too many "fade in/out" cuts, but I see the purpose there.

I was looking forward to hearing "be ba boo boo beep"

Meh

Didn't do much anything to me. Granted the shots of the them transforming and the cgi in general is of pretty good quality, but appart from big robots the trailer's not very exiting at all. Expecially since we didn't get a shot of Optimus Prime and Megatron duking it out.

Pearl Harbor Indeed

This movie just looks completely vacant of content. Unless it somehow pulls off the ID4 phenomenon, Transforms will only be eye candy. (Coming from the guy who liked The Island)

Holy shit. The Tranformers were awesome in cartoon form when we were young, and it looks like it grew up with us. Although the trailer doesn't show much, it definitely got me uber excited for when the film comes out. Totally awesome!

Bay needs to be an assistant director

I'm not sold yet. Bay can definately direct an action scene, but he needs to stay away from directing any other type of scene, or entire movies. I'm still pissed at him for not letting Scarlett show her boobs.

Well, that was decidedly underwhelming. I think this movie has the potential to be even worse than Pearl Harbor, which I thought to be plainly impossible. Nice to see studios still throwing money away.
