Here's the thing about Michael Bay's Transformer films: from what I've seen, there's not much plot involved. With this new trailer I was hoping we'd get some semblance of plotNew Transformers trailer is nice but...

2012 has an impressive line-up of films. Time travel, mutation, gods, monsters, hobbits, technology, and sheer awesomeness all combine to create an almost inescapable desire to just set up an7 movies my mother has to worry about (and a bunch more)
