After debuting an atmospheric and conspiracy-tinged initial trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon in December, Paramount Pictures went with all-out action for the Super Bowl ad for director Michael Bay’s sequel. I much prefer the first one but, hey, 30 seconds’ worth of explosions was probably the way to go for Sunday’s TV spot.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which stars Shia LeBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, John Malkovich and John Turturro, opens in 3D on July 1.
