Things I Learned From The New "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" Trailer

The trailer for the upcoming Transformers: Age Of Extinction debuted today, and was met with much indifference by me.

I thought the first Transformers movie was probably as good as a movie about giant transforming robots is ever likely to be. The second one was an incomprehensible collection of set pieces crudely edited together and I didn't even bother seeing the third one. 

So far this one looks like more of the same. But hey, it's got giant robots fighting giant mechanical dinosaurs, so it's got that going for itself.

While watching the trailer I couldn't help but notice this:

It's kind of tough to see in a still image, but at one point Optimal Primus (or whoever this is) roars with rage at something and you can actually see his breath in the cool morning air. So apparently robots breathe and exhale hot air when they yell. Got it.

I have a nagging feeling that that's the least stupid thing in this film.

As a bonus, here's one of the character postesr from the film. Because this is a Michael Bay movie, by law it has to feature the American flag flying proudly in the background (see pretty much every scene in Armageddon). Even if I didn't know this was a Transformers poster I'd be able to identify it as a Bay film!
