'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' Trailer: Where's Shia?!
Our one sentence opinion on the new "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" trailer? This looks dumb. Oh, you want us to elaborate? OK, we're here to please. 1. There's no Shia LaBeouf. 2. It's set completely in 1969 when the first man walked on the moon. 3. No Optimus Prime or Megatron.We get that there's a lot of conspiracies about the moon landing, but we don't understand what that has to do with our hero Sam Witwicky (LaBeouf). Maybe it's better to use the word teaser because that's what this trailer does. We're not sure what exactly the plot is, but it does have us wondering what on earth is going on.
On the plus side, we get to meet (kind of) a new transformer: Alpha Trion, who apparently has a beard/goatee. According to Wikipedia, Alpha Trion is one of the Original 13 Transformers and is "generally depicted as an ancient mechanoid with a link to Optimus Prime." We don't know what that means.
Also of note: New Transformer babe Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who replaces Megan Fox, is nowhere to be seen. We're guessing producers want to keep fan boys eagerly awaiting their first peek at Huntingwon-Whiteley. Smart move.
There is one positive about the trailer: Director Michael Bay resists showing something blow up for over two minutes! Baby steps, people.
