'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' Daytona 500 trailer: There's a NASCAR-bot?
A newish trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon debuted during the Daytona 500 on Sunday. The 30-second spot wasn’t hugely different from the Super Bowl trailer: Same Inception-y foghorn on the soundtrack, same apparent refusal to let new series star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley speak on camera. However, there are two noteworthy additions. First, a bit of expository dialogue from John Turturro, who says somberly, “Years from now they’re gonna ask us: Where were you when they took over the planet?” (Hmmm, sounds like full-scale global war between the Autobots and the Decepticons.) The second comes at about the 24-second mark, when we meet a new cast member: a Transformer designed to look exactly like a NASCAR auto. Check out the full trailer after the jump…
