Supposedly, the film picks up where Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen left off. We’re not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. We don’t want any remnants of the film to appear in this one. There has to be a significant shift in time because Sam appears to be in a new city and has a new girlfriend.

We’re not too invested in this movie, but we will admit that Optimus Prime’s new armor looks pretty amazing. That entire sequence of him spinning around while slicing and dicing Decepticons is great. What’s your favorite part of the TV spot? Do you think the movie will live up to the hype?

Transformers Dark of the Moon is scheduled to hit theaters on July 1, 2011.
