This movie could be as sucktastic as #2 was but the Paramount marketing machine is gving me more reasons to see the movie than not. Take yesterday's Dayton 500 for example. I had not been paying much attention to TF3. So when I saw Josh Duhamel, Michael Bay & Rosie Huntington-Whiteley standing in front of a #88 Transformer and giving the command to start engines, I was paying attention then!
I was clueless to the fact that the NASCAR 'Wreckers' were in TF3 much less the big name stars (and cars) they were using. THEN, I saw them in the new trailer and being driven around the track too! I geeked a liitle bit and maybe even squealed like a little girl. They were awesome - I hope they have some nice die cast versions for sale soon!
I also like the trailer a lot. I like the mood it's trying to set, I like the vehicles they are showing, and I like that they aren't giving away the whole story before you even see the movie. Of course, there may not be any story given the debacle of TF2. We'll see.
