Having a car that can transform into a fighting robot would be pretty great, apart for one thing.

New ‘Transformers: Dark Of The Moon’ Trailer Is Up!

Michael Bay doing what he does best: Making giant robots fight while Shia LaBeouf looks on helplessly. All hail our new robot overlords in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the third installment in the blockbuster franchise. Same song, different verse as Autobots and Decepticons battle it out in Chicago over humans lying to Optimus Prime about what the found on the moon 40 years ago. (Just nod and smile.) It's looking like the Transformers are raising hell in another downtown. Couldn't they find a nice farm or pasture to battle in? It would really cut down on the destruction they cause all the civilians. Other observations: Optimus Prime is a bit of a twirler Bumblebee has gotten pretty good at parkour Flying squirrel people are our last line of defense God help us all.


1st Clip From ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ Has 0 Transformers

Can Autobots turn into Patrick Dempsey now? When I think Michael Bay, I think "human drama." And my preconceived notions are nothing but confirmed as I watch this, the first clip from Transformers: The Dark of the Moon. Now you can watch it too, and imagine how awesome it would be with giant transforming robots beating the shit out of each other, and Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Patrick Dempsey. But, no matter how much you imagine it, there aren't any robots to be seen here. Just Patrick Dempsey vaguely being a dick to Shia LaBeouf. Which sounds cool on paper, but I dunno. I kind of wanted there to be robots. (Comingsoon)


Honest Trailers: 'Transformers'

Honesty is the best policy. Especially when talking about giant robots from space... Honest Trailers is back, and this time, it's personal. Well, not really. Michael Bay's Transformers is one of the most lucrative film franchises of all time. It's also one of the most idiotic. Don't get me wrong; hot chicks and robots are a great combo. But I'm not sure it's worth sitting through two-and-a-half hours of product placement and Shia LaBeouf. Don't take my word for it. Let this Honest Trailer speak for itself.


'Oz: The Great And Powerful' Trailer Gives Us An Origin Story, Mila Kunis

Really great, but only sorta powerful. This much-anticipated Sam Raimi film appears to be everything that we would like a Tim Burton film to be. It's got great effects that seem relevant to the story. It's got central characters that aren't played by Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. It's got a story, though somewhat familiar, that seems pretty damn crafty and fun. I don't want to get too gushy about a trailer, but Oz: The Great and Powerful looks as though it's oozing originality. And how could it not? It's got Franco!


See New 3D 'Transformers: Dark Of The Moon' Trailer, If You've Got The Tech

Finally, a 'Transformers' video with Transformers in it. Here's a new trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. "Hey, wait a minute, this isn't in 3D," you're saying to yourself. Well, of COURSE it isn't, unless you're a proud owner of a My 3D device from Hasbro. That's not a joke, it's a doohickey you attach to your iPhone, and in conjunction with a free My 3D app, it acts as a kind of 3D Viewmaster that will convert the trailer into 3D. It's 2011, people. The Future is here. Michael Bay must be giddy with excitement. As for the trailer itself, there doesn't appear to be a lot of new footage in it. But if you're excited about Transformers: Dark of the Moon, it might be worth a watch. And you're not alone, either, since this movie is somehow getting a lot of positive buzz. Maybe it's all a racket to get people to buy My 3D devices. (The Hollywood Reporter)


Transformers Selling Non-Transforming Chevys

Transformers and Chevy have teamed up to create an ad that will remind Super Bowl audiences that both Transformers and Chevy still exist. Score one for the little guy! Transformers and Chevy have teamed up to create an ad that will remind Super Bowl audiences that both Transformers and Chevy still exist and if you mess with either, they will chuck an adorable bear across a parking lot. What can be said of this little nugget of ephemera? It's inexplicably shot in verite style, as if the video could go viral then, millions of YouTube hits later, Chevy and Transformers 'fess up to having staged the whole thing; there actually wasn't a giant anthropomorphic automobile terrifying the streets of Anytown, USA. Whatever. I'm sure this will elicit an "Oh, heavens!" from the receptionist at your office Super Bowl party.
