The New Transformers Teaser Up

Not much to see here, but I can definitely see the direction Michael Bay is trying to go with this franchise. This looks to me a darker, more sinister Transformers. You cant really emulate the kitschy elements of the cartoon into the movie and be taken seriously. I kinda like the Mars rover angle. Obviously it was done to ground the concept in to the audience's collective consciousness that we may be invaded by giant robots that transform into trucks, camaros and F 15s.

That's a pretty tough thing to do.

Click here for the site and to view the trailer in Quicktime.

And speaking of camaros, here's a pic I snagged from a site. It was pulled out of the site afterwards so it's special. Its a shot of a robot in earth. Shh, let this be our little secret.

RC. Thanks for your comment. But i have to politely disagree.

Transformers has a fanbase of almost all males in their mid 20s to mid 30s. These are mostly familymen who will take their kids to the theater along with thm opning night. Fans + Kids = big bucks
