Plus: The latest for 'X-Men: First Class,' 'Green Lantern' and 'Transformers'
'Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon'
Lowdown: Third time's hopefully a charm for the blockbuster franchise that no one really seems to like all that much.
Grade: B It really does look like director Michael Bay will make up for the crapburger that was "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." This trailer seems to promise a leaner, meaner (and, hopefully, more sensical) film, with some inspired line reading and Frances McDormand's brief presence promising good things. Plus, that shot of Bumblebee scaling the building is pretty amazing.
It's interesting to note that both this film (in referencing the space race) and "X-Men: First Class" (the Cuban Missile Crisis) revise 1960s U.S. history by involving these familiar pop culture icons. Maybe we'll get too see Superman at Woodstock.
Release date: July 1
