“Transformers – Dark of the Moon”; A new trailer, a new hope?

See what I did there? Huh? Righteous!

Yes, there’s a new trailer for Michael Bay’s third “Transformers” film and you can find it over at Apple’s trailer hub.

Bay’s eye for huge spectacle is present and correct, as is the meme-worthy sight of Shia LeBeouf yelling his little lungs out for Optimus to come save his butt. Metropolitan property is destroyed with cavalier abandon, Peter Mullan has the best voice ever and, best of all, those dreaded ‘Twins’ are nowhere to be seen.

Michael Bay in the thick of it.

Though I hated “Revenge of the Fallen” with a passion (it’s one of only two movies that I’ve ever walked out of), something tells me that I will be seeing this film in a theatre, which is a serious recommendation. In this age of Blu-Ray and excellent home cinema presentation, it takes a film which demands to be seen on a big screen to motivate me to brave my local GooglyPlex – though the jury is still out on 3D presentation for me.

Intriguingly, Bay’s synonymous hyper-kinetic visual style has been anecdotally reigned in by the limitations of the 3D cameras that he worked with here – perhaps this might be the first Bay movie which doesn’t induce tension headaches in the audience and has some semblance of a downer ending.

To whet your proverbial whistle, Comic Book Movie have a YouTubed host of the trailer and some screengrabs for your perusal.

Doesn't look good for Chicago...
