There was no telling where the Transformers franchise was going to go after Revenge of the Fallen, and it looks like the only answer was the destruction of everything we know.
The first trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon feels like it gives away a lot, so be warned, but it also gives away a giant metal set of tentacles ravaging a skyscraper, the utter despair of losing the world to an alien race, and a whole hell of a lot of explosions.

That’s really the only word for it. No matter how the film turns out or what moronic thing they have Sam’s mom do, or what kind of racist robots pop up to question where Obama’s birth certificate is, this trailer is huge.
