Wow, can I just say this is gonna blow your mind. Yeah, yeah, I know, you’re gonna say it’s gonna suck. I say who cares. The one thing with the Transformers movie is the story is a little lacking (or a lot for those who are critical). You know what though, you can’t deny that Michael Bay makes some really cool explosions and action scenes. I’m just hoping in this third film that the camera moves aren’t a mess.
Anyways, check out this pretty epic trailer. There are some pretty awesome sequences in there. For those who live in downtown Chicago and had to deal with the really bad traffic due to the filming of this film, reassured that just about every scene in this trailer is in Chicago. I’m kind of wrong to say this, but Chicago looks amazing being destroyed. What’s even amazing are the people behind it that did the special effects. It only too them around a year or so to do it. I wonder how many technicians and artist worked on this.
The trailer is pretty straight forward. The government shared the info of the transformers world. Mr Optimus Prime isn’t too pleased. Now there are aliens popping out of the moon and giving destruction to earth specifically Chicago. Anyways from the way Optimus was talking about it at the end of the trailer makes it look the Autobots have lost faith in the humans and were gonna leave earth. Will this be the final Transformer movie for next 6 or so years? We do know that this is Michael Bay’s last Transformer film. Who knows, but make sure to watch that trailer cause that’s all you’ll get til July 1.
I don’t know what happened to me. I’ve haven’t wrote on this blog in a while. So did anyone watch the trailer for the new Transformers while watching the super bowl? Well I was and I didn’t even noticed that this trailer. Maybe I didn’t care for the commercials because they were just not good. It seems a lot of these advertisers are just paying big bucks just the get on the spot and don’t support it with some great witty commercials. Super Bowl used to be not only about the game itself, but it was also about the commercials. Many non-sports fans watched only for the commercials, but this year it just wasn’t up to par.
Enough of that ramble, what I was trying to get at was the short teaser for Transformers 3. Can anybody say whoo hoo. More destruction and action. Surprised how quickly they got Chicago to look so damaged and have the autobots looking and moving great. Considering the film was just filmed last summer, kudos to the hard working artists for a great job. I’m sure the footage isn’t final, but man if those the last scenes, Chicago is going to be annialated to a pulp.
Oh yeah, anyone noticed how a lot of these trailers are doing the single beat thing and timing the video with it. I don’t know about you, but I believe Inception (I could be wrong) started this whole craze with trailers doing this to create some sort of mood, almost like a climax til the title is shown. It’s almost like a trend. Anyways, if you haven’t seen the new teaser trailer for Transformers 3 check it out below:
That’s right folks. Starting July 9, the filming of the 3rd Transformers will start in Chicago. Here’s the schedule if you want to snap up some pics (it wouldn’t matter though since all the transformers are in CG):
