Michael Bay sure knows how to blow things up.
The newest trailer for 'Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon' was unveiled in a Super Bowl ad on Sunday, and offered plenty of bang per minute -- much more than the actual game on the field. Shia LeBeouf is back, this time using his transforming robot friends to help in a plot spurred by a space race between the United States and the Russians, perhaps a throwback to the era of the original TV series.
LeBeouf, who was openly critical of the second film -- 'Revenge of the Fallen' was a commercial, but not critical success -- said in July that "There's going to be a lot of death, human death. This time, they're targeting humans. It's going to be the craziest action movie ever made, or we failed."
There's definitely one major change: LeBeouf will be joined by a new female co-star, Rosie Huntington Whitely. She takes the place of Megan Fox, who was either fired or decided herself not to do the third film, depending on whom you believe.
