There is a new trailer out for Transformers (see it here) and it really makes me look forward to it, especially because it is sure to be a Michael Bay effects extravaganza, and on a hot day in July, that's just what I am looking for. Plus when they show Optimus Prime transforming, there is that mechanical noise from the cartoon. Perfect.

In the preview we see some classic Bay archetypes:

  • Explosions
  • Exploding vehicles in motion
  • Soldiers/Patriotic Feelings
  • Asteroids hitting stuff
  • Explosions

And I'm not saying any of that is bad. On the contrary, for the July 4th opening it is perfect. I will be at the beach with the fam, reliving other pivotal July moments like Armageddon, Independence Day, and Men In Black. With Will Smith and/or Michael Bay around we have nothing to fear (but enormous human-hating robots).
