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.

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?

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.

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.
