We auto enthusiasts have an obsession with the upcoming Michael Bay bonanza that is Transformers, the live action film. The first trailer for the movie that opens in July didn't show much, in fact all we got was the sillouhette of a Decepticon on the planet Mars about to snuff out the life of a poor Exploration Rover. The new second trailer has just arrived, however, and does a much better job of delivering on the goods. While not revealing too much from the film, Bay allows us to see what amount to more than passing glances of not only Bumblebee while he's in Saleen Camaro mode and transformed, but also the big man himself, Optimus Prime. A little bit of fair warning, if you're eager to see this movie you can kiss an afternoon of productivity goodbye. We're on replay No. 7 and counting.

      The "look" I can deal with, even though they do look very "Evangelionish" (skeletal, anorexic, etc.). As long as the tone reminds me of the original from my childhood (or one of the dozens of reincarnations since?) then I'll be halfway there. What will the bots' voices sound like? Will they incorporate original melodies? Etc...

      Well spank my ass and call me Betty.

      Saleen's going to do Camaros? Did he decide there weren't enough people out there screwing them up or something?

      Excited doesn't say enough. I hope they make some cool toys to go along with the movie.

      Oh Man i can't wait. I grew up watching them. The 2nd trailer is better than the 1st one.

      I really don't like those robot models. One of my favorite parts of the old-school transformers (and the best of the new-school ones) were when you could see body panels artfully integrated into the robot's look.

      A car turning inside out into a generic robot is boring. A car turning into a cool car-themed robot is cool.

      It's Megatron, dude. not Magnetron. ;)

      Eh. It looks like a new, generic terminator movie crossed with the awful Alien vs Predator. The robots look generic, the plot seems generic, and it looks like the Transformers license is just slapped on. Sure they will have an Optimus Prime and a Bumble Bee and a Magnetron and so forth and sure the things will transform, but it won't feel like transformers. Somehow seeing CNN report of a big explosion and mysterious robots running around doesn't seem like Transformers.

      I don't know, the trailer just looked boring and generic.

      Before I get flamed, yes I grew up in the 80s with all of the Transformer toys and TV shows. They are dear to me, but I have no desire to watch this blahness.
