I know this earns me the sneering derision of film snobs everywhere, but fuck, sorry movie nerds. I can't help it. I've got like a Pavlovian response to Bayhem that cannot be helped, that cannot be denied. And Transformers 3 looks to be the Bayhemiest flick Bay has ever hemmed.

Here's the new trailer. Shia shouts a lot. Robots smash a city's worth of shit. Optimus Prime gets pissy, 'cause he's essentially Walter Matthau in Grumpy Old Men at this point. Bumbebee does some parkour, because if alien robots love doing one thing, it's parkourin'. It all looks even more batshit crazy than Transformers 2, for whatever that's worth. HD here.
