First Transformers 3 Trailer Reveals 40 Year Old Secret

According to the new Transformers movie, the Apollo 11 mission was about a lot more than just landing on the Moon.

The first trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the third and final installment in the Transformers series, suggests that the whole Megatron/Hoover Dam thing from the first movie wasn't unique, and America actually has a plethora of Transformers related secrets it's been keeping.

The trailer opens as the Apollo 11 lander touches down on the surface of the Moon and we hear Neil Armstrong's iconic line, "it's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Mission control then cuts the video feed to allow the astronauts to investigate the real reason they're there, the downed alien spaceship on the titular dark side of the moon.

The ship is ruined, with no survivors - or so the astronauts think. As the trailer closes, a yellow-armored Transformer with a metal goatee beard wakes up. It's not known who this mysterious robot is, but there are rumors floating around that Sentinel Prime - the leader of the Autobots before Optimus - will be in the movie, so there's the possibility it could be him.

According to Collider, director Michael Bay is aware that Revenge of the Fallen had its problems, and wants Dark of the Moon to be a significant improvement in terms of story and action. There's not enough in the trailer to even hint at whether he's succeeded or not, but unfortunately, his track record with the franchise doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon hits theaters on July 1st, and Bay recommends that you watch it in 3D.

While I detested the second Transformers movie, and was very meh about the first, this one actually looks interesting, if they keep the human characters to professionals and stay the hell away from that damn kid and his girlfriend.

Side note, anyone else thinking Vector Sigma for the transformer at the end? And god I feel like such a nerd now.

I hope so much Unicron will be in this movie, but probably won't. I hope Bay wasn't lying about going deeper into the mythos because this looks more interesting compared to the first two.

That was actually my first thought, too.

Ahh, Transformers, with your sad attempts at alterna-history bullshit. Will I someday get the option to be as embarrassingly written as you?

When will they bring back the Bug transformers, which were shaped as bugs? 4th movie? 5th?

Both movies sucked so my $50 says that this one will suck too. Just look at that cheesy trailer, dear god!

Logan Westbrook:

Michael Bay: knows the art of "Grossly understating the fundamental suckage of his films"

OT: It looks.. interesting, but it's a Michael Bay film. I expect little story, lot's of Baysplosions! (TM), convoluted romantic dialogue, and horribly screwing up Transformer persona's.

I'll wait and see.

the third movie is the last one in the Transformers franchise.

I heard that the Autobots and the Decepticons were supposed to form a team to take out an enemy. Or was that just for the game?

Ok Bay used up all my good will towards the franchise to see the last two movies. I'm not making that mistake again. I'd only go see this for free.

Also what is up with that title? I get the film has something to do with the dark side of the moon, but why not just call it "Dark Side" than name it after one of the most famous albums of all time?

"Coming next fall Tron 3: OK Computer!"

Also if you're going to the dark side of the Moon (which is a misnomer since there is no "Dark Side") why land ON THE TOTALLY OTHER SIDE OF THE MOON!? Seriously. Did they take an Easyjet flight or something.

This series has done nothing but piss me off, and this movie has done it before the first trailer.

I don't like the other 2 Michael Bay Transformer movies, but this one looks interesting. At least the trailer does. I might check it out after all.

It says something when your 2 minute trailer is better than your 190 minute, 200 million dollar sci-fi action film...with giant robots.

Because the alien ship is crashed on the "dark side" and if they landed on it, it wouldve been televised across the globe and not been much of a secret?

It's probably one of the wierdist framing devices I've ever seen. I wonder how Mr.Armstrong feels about it.

Well, we went to ask Buzz Aldrin about it...

ALL of the transformers movies were excellent. This will be no exception.

Am I the only one who acualy enjoyed the other Transformers movies(-Megan Foxx)? But if he does actualy focus more on story,that would be VERY nice.

Well.. it has a degree of hope.

As for Vector Sigma seems fairly unlikely of a notion. Personally Im not really getting the connection to Vector sigma outside of the robot being the same color as the Arc in the 80s cartoon. Perhaps that it seems integrated into the structure, but its only a split second shot and the angle may be misleading.

Outside possibilities might indicate a setup of a battle between Omega Supreme and Trypticon with this yellow bot being Omega supreme, which I find a little more plausible than Vector sigma. But It seems more likely that they would do a little more focus on the gestalt transformers before going all the way into Omega/trypticon, or even Unicron.

Sentinel prime does seem more likely albeit a confliction of the story, which given that Michael Bay did butcher the lore in the last film,(WTF, The fallen? Seriously?) Sentinel prime and that confliction seem like an ideal likely candidate.

It´s Transformers : Dark of the Moon, not Dark Side of the Moon! I guess the Pink Floyd reference is cooler than the name they used...

I really liked the first Transformers movie.

The second was definitely lacking in something - I think they introduced too many new Autobots and should have just stuck with the ones from the first film (maybe with the addition of Sideswipe because he was awesome). Jolt, for example, was absolutely redundant until his 1 scene at the end...and it goes without saying how much hatred I have for Skidz and Mudflap. Seriously, what? There was way too much comic relief in that film. Way too much.
Additionally, I thought the Fallen was a total pussy and died way too easily.

I'm not sure how I feel about this new one. If I remember correctly, Bay said it would focus on human relationships moreso...despite the film being about the eponymous Transformers.
Also, now Megan Fox is out, we have some new girl who more than likely can't act, and who, with the aid from CGI, is unrealistically hot.

I hope in this one, also, that Starscream kills Megatron. That would be wonderful.

EDIT: Also, this

My god this is brilliant...

I did sort of enjoy the first two. Whenever the humans weren't on screen, or they were just running from Transformers. Either one.
I'm sold on this one simply because it's called Dark Side Of The Moon. And I'll probably go see it in the cinema cause what's the use of watching giant robots beating the shit out of each other if it's not surround sound and a massive screen.

marcogodinho:

Oh... Damn. Well that's just boring. I suppose it's still giant robots beating the shit out of each other.

Oh damn. Can't we just get rid of this all together?

Please?

well ill watch this on the Big Screen as i have with all the Others. you cant appreciate the mindless BAYSPLOSIONS on the small screen! XD

They arent gonna win any awards for their story but i'd be lying if i say i didnt like Baysplosions. hehe

plus i always love it when they Tie real historical events with fiction!

Whoops! Well spotted. I've corrected that.

This is kinda silly. I'm just gonna wait until it runs on TV sometime in the future, like I did with the other two movies.

I'm cautiously optimistic. I mean, he might make a good film... It could possibly happen, right?

This made my day. Fuck Bart Sibrel.

I dont blame you. The title seems to be missing a word in my opinion, heh.

That's...infuriating, actually. Apollo 11 being given a secret mission when the world thought they were beyond radio contact is an incredible premise. And it's being squandered on Michael Bay's Transformers. It'll probably be pretty shabbily cobbled into the trilogy's timeline, too.

Given that Megan Fox and her bland acting are officially absent from the third film, the trailer has not one single explosion or action scene in it, and the fact that the writers from the first two films are gone, I am actually expecting this one to be good. At least as far as Bay's transformers film go.

If the downed Transformer is on the dark side of the moon, why is that area perfectly lit? The whole point of the moon having a dark side is that sunlight never--oh, forget it.

EDIT: Seems I forgot how tidally locked planetary bodies work. :) Sorry!

I'm wondering if Bay can avoid his style of comedy for this third one. Bumblebee 'urinating' on someone, offensive racial stereotype-bots and 'the enemy scrotum' can take a break. That is dork humour and more cringeworthy than remotely funny. Wouldn't mind a break from the blatant product placement too. Maybe some good cinematography would be nice.

May as well ask for a lifetime supply of ice cream while I'm at it. Mr. Bay I want you to include a lifetime supply of ice cream with this movie.

Seriously though, saw the first one, good enough for one superficial viewing. Saw it a second time and saw how truly awful it was. Only saw bits of the second one. From what I saw it was embarrassingly bad. I doubt Michael Bay has learned enough from his many many mistakes to make a good third movie, (or a good movie full stop,) but something at least watchable would be cool.

I smell Unicron in the next movie. It seems obvious of the uninspired franchise anyway. Hasn't Michael Bay killed Transformers enough? I'm boycotting the movie like I did the second one and I'm going to get as many of my friends as possible to join me.

The trailer look cool. Am I the only one who think that transformers near the end is Alpha Trion? (only because of the beard) and also by the movie title I saw Unicron well in planet mode as well.

Kwatsu:
If the downed Transformer is on the dark side of the moon, why is the place they're exploring perfectly lit? The whole point of the moon having a dark side is--oh, forget it.

Well, it's "dark" to us, as in "we never see it". The moon is tidally locked, always showing the same face towards us, but still rotates around the Earth. The dark side gets as much sun as the side facing us.

Unless you were sarcastic and making fun of the trailer. Sorry! It's hard to tell. It's worth making fun of.

Especially the part where the astronauts have TWENTY MINUTES to get to the other side of the Moon. It isn't a freakin' park, it's 1700 km wide! How fast can you move when you're just hopping around like a stoned bunny?! Even if they landed on the edge of the dark side and the crashed ship was just over the hill, you don't get to do shit on the Moon in 20 minutes.

Wait, how did that transformer reactivate... I thought transformers weakness was extreme cold, and they're in space...??

Honestly Michael Bay, can't you even follow your own retarded science? :P
