OK, I am quite surprised to be writing this, but this trailer is effing amazing. Really, it is. I think a lot of it is due to the music which blew me away — I hope you have good speakers. And the other reason is the shots are extended, Michael Bay is learning. We want to actually see the Transformers, we want to see them change, we don’t want ten million edits per second. And here we even get some shots in slow-mo. I really hope that isn’t just for the trailer; but this extended shot of Bumblee changing, running up a wall and grabbing some army dudes, is thrilling. Since Michael Bay has all but admitted Transformers 2 was shit, I have hope for this one. Click here to watch on apple or hit the jump for a stream.
