As promised, Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the third and final installment of the Michael Bay-directed action series. The studio also released a new quasi-synopsis that actually tells you less about the movie than the previous description:
Shia LaBeouf returns as Sam Witwicky in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. When a mysterious event from Earth's past erupts into the present day it threatens to bring a war to Earth so big that the Transformers alone will not be able to save us.
See? Starring Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Malkovich and John Turturro, the movie centers on a race between the Autobots and Decepticons to find a Cybertronian on the moon.
Check out the new trailer below, or in HD at Apple. Transformers: Dark of the Moon opens in 3D on July 1.
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.
