Well they certainly made the actual Transformers look pretty cool. As for the story? We will see. The trailer did make me somewhat excited to see the movie now though.

The part I liked most was at the end when a robot came out of the swimming pool. The close up on the mechanics of its foot as it stepped was really neat and incorporates a lot of current robotics, as opposed to the clunkyness I was expecting. I watched that part in slo-mo a few times before I thought about anything else.

The trailer as a whole was ok. Nothing that gets me more excited about the movie, but it certainly doesn't make me not want to see it. About what I'd expect. I wonder how well the robots' personalities will come through. And also how much the human protagonists will bring the movie down.

Holy Crap! That looks fantastic!

I wasn't really jazzed to see this, but after that trailer, I am there!

I think the idea of a live action Transformers movie is a stupid one. I think the idea of a live action Transformers movie directed by Michael Bay is a horrible, terrible asinine idea!

Call me a bitter fanboy if you must, but I'm going to cling to my 20th Anniversary Edition Transformers the Movie DVD and pretend this new film doesn't exist.

The whole horror/disaster/"The robots are coming to KILL YOU" angle is the wrong direction. Was it so hard to make a sci-fi/adventure/fantasy where the Transformers are the central characters instead of the b-list celebrity humans?

But...Aaron Pierce! Yay!

No, thank you. I didn't really get anything from it. It didn't capture my imagination...but then again, I haven't been entirely excited about this movie to begin with.

It is obvious this movie is totally redoing the history. Ok. I can live with that. I will have to brainwash myself not to expect any original G1 stuff. Then I can and will like this.
Because I am sure the effects will look cool and the robots are gonna rock. At least based on this trailer.

I like how the trailer doesn't focus too much on the TFs but that is obvious so they don't have to show too much footage of them yet.

Well, it doesn't fubar the concept it seems to look good.

I can see it going to be chalked full of action, some kind love intrest story between boy and girl shown, and other basics which seem to be in almost every movie nowadays.

I've been excited since it got the green light but this just adds to me now wanting to see it on 7.4.7

I'm still not totally high on that paint job for Prime. Ugh, damn that Machine Wars Prime toy.

I just do not get it. Maybe I'm too old, because I thought the original Transformers was ridiculous. Add to the mix Michael Bay, the absolute worst director EVER! I most likely will not be seeing this movie.

Now, now, let's not jump to conclusions; after all it could've been directed by Uwe Boll.

Nope. Uwe Boll would have been better. I'm not saying good, but anyone would be better than Michael Bay.
