Let’s face it, the super bowl ad was very little to get people worked up about the new film. Today a full 2 minute plus trailer was released and we finally get a backstory and plot outline for the film. “A mechanic and his daughter make a discovery that brings down Autobots and Decepticons – and a paranoid government official – on them.” What does the trailer tell us? Mark Wahlberg’s character finds another junk truck to fix up but finds out in fact its Optimus Prime. Soon after everyone on all sides come down on him. The trailer suggests the timeline is set several years later and the transformers are no longer needed and are long forgotten.
The departure of our normal lead character Sam Witwicky played by Shia Labouf, have left many to speculate that this is a reboot, despite Michael Bay’s comments stating otherwise. For fans of the franchise long before the movies, the Dinobots are by far the most exciting and worrisome addition to the films. Many have stated they are afraid that Michael Bay will mess things up and ruin something they have dreamed about since they were kids.
Checkout the trailer and photos below and you be the judge. Sound off in the comments and tell us are they doing it right or did they mess things up?
