Paramount Pictures throws the promotional machine into high gear for Transformers: Dark of the Moon with this new 3D trailer for the third and final installment of Michael Bay’s action franchise.
Yes, the trailer is in 3D, but you apparently have to pick up a special viewing device — and possibly an app? — to get the full benefit? I don’t know, this new-fangled technology confuses me. But, hey, it still looks good in 2D.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which we now know opens on June 29, stars stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Patrick Dempsey, John Turturro, Frances McDormand, Peter Cullen and Tyrese Gibson.
The Autobots Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide and Sideswipe led by Optimus Prime, are back in action, taking on the evil Decepticons, who are determined to avenge their defeat in 2009′s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends. There’s new characters too, including a new villain in the form of Shockwave, a longtime Transformers character who rules Cybertron while the Autobots and Decepticons battle it out on Earth.
