Transformers 3 Trailer Released

That's right.  The third Transformers movie is comoing out July 1, 2011 and the trailer is out.  This time we learn that the Apollo 11 mission found a Transformers space ship that crashed on the moon.  At one point they stop transmitting to Earth and are told my mission control that their mission is a go and they have 21 minutes.  As the astronauts explore the wreckage, you see dead or de-activated Transformers in the ship, but you don't know if they're Autobots or Decepticons. 

The best hint is at the end when the camera zooms in on an old Transformer who looks like he has a mustache (why a robot would have a mustache is beyond me).  Zoom in on his eye and it starts to glow blue.  That makes me think it's an Autobot, since that was how their eyes looked (Decepticons had red eyes - maybe they need Clear Eyes).

I looked at the trailer a second time, pausing on the old Transformer.  Then it hit me.  I think this is Alpha Trion.  Those who remember the 80s cartoon might remember Alpha Trion as Optimus Prime's mentor.  But, that doesn't mean the ship is Autobot.  Perhaps the ship crashed when Decepticons tried to take it over?  Maybe the Autobots raided it.  Anyway, we'll have to wait until July 1, 2011 until the release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

I just hope it isn't the disaster that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was.  I mean if you just wanted an action-packed blast-fest, it was adequately entertaining, but for story?  Well...let's see.

  1. What was the deal with the Fallen?  Megatron was the leader of the Decepticons.  End of story!
  2. This weapon in the pyramid built by the Primes and the Fallen to destroy a sun.  If they weren't supposed to use it on a star supporting life, why did they even build it here?  There are so many stars with no life, that the premise was just ridiculous.
  3. Only a Prime could kill the Fallen, but all the other Primes combined couldn't do it.
  4. In the first Transformers movie, Optimus Prime and Megatron fight it out and Megatron actually beats Optimus.  But in the second, Optimus not only slaps Megatron around, but he's beating two other big Decepticons also!  The only reason Megatron stabbed Optimus is because Optimus stopped to look for Sam.
I could go on, but you get the idea.  Now if you want another take on how the second Transformers movie should have gone, here's a link to a friend's fanfic Transformers Reboot

Anyway, let's hope for the best and

Write On.
