Transformers: Dark of the Moon gets a teaser.

This is a pure tease, with only a token amount of Transformers footage at the very end. Ironically, as I've mentioned before, when I saw the first Transformers on opening night, I was sure that what turned out to be the Cloverfield teaser was in fact an early tease for Star Trek. This teaser uses a similar 'we're in the real world until we're not' ploy, and it's usually pretty effective. Up until the onscreen credits appear for Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg, the only hint is the low-key version of the franchise theme music (which I rarely like). Michael Bay swears that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was a victim of the writer's strike and he arguably has something to prove for the first time in awhile. We can likely expect a teaser with actual giant robots to premiere with the Super Bowl like last time. For now, we can enjoy this little bit of tease, with only the oddly F. Murray Abraham-looking robot at the end offering any evidence that this is in fact a Transformers film. This will premiere in theaters this weekend with The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
