    Were edging ever so closely to Sunday, and still no word on the situation exactly. Usually we get an internet release first before it airs on T.V., so I'm doubting it even more so. I mean come on, Wolverine and T4 both have Trailers out, and they are being released around the same time as TF: RotF, so why are they dragging their feet?

    It's to build up the hype. The Super Bowl is a huge event that millions of people will be watching, and to have the first-ever teaser trailer for the sequel to an awesome summer action flick that smashed the box office placed smack-dab in the middle of this event is a great marketing move (plus, I imagine that at least 80% of the people watching are the kind who would love a movie involving explosions and battling robots). Premiered this way, it will draw a lot of interest and be seen by a whole bunch of people and a wide audience. Unlike an online premier, which would attract mainly fans.
    The trailer will undoubtedly be officially released online soon after the Super Bowl, if not on the same day.

    I personally don't think they'll be releasing the trailer anytime before the game. If anything we might get it online either sometime during, or afterwords. I might actually sit down and watch it, though I'll probably just wait and watch the trailer when it gets released online. That way I can do something worth the time, instead of sitting there waiting to see one commercial.

    It's not unusual for a trailer/commercial to be worked on up to the day that it's to be broadcast. The crew at ILM/DD have no doubt been doing some all nighters to get the particular scenes up to standard for the trailer.

    That's the problem with trailers, the teams need to take a break from the final work just to get the trailer footage final and at a point where it looks "finished".

    why would there be any "word" about a 30 second commercial?

    There word is that there is gonna be one during Superbowl. How much more word do you need than that?

    why pay $3 million for 30 seconds when you're just gonna post the ad online? Bit of a waste dontcha think? Obviously they'd rather it be seen on the television when all of America is watching (which is a larger demographic) than all the TF fans on the internet community. It'll show up later online after the game and will be the most downloaded movie ad in history.

    Look at how much hype Bay has built up. I don't think anyone else seems to care about any of the other ads as much as ROTF

    What?!
    30 seconds?!!

    What are they going to show in 30"?
    It's mainly sufficient to tell the name of the movie.

    I'm afraid it'll be like the 1st TF teaser or maybe less.

    I hope they're going the release an HD trailer very soon, because the hype needs more than 5 miserable months.

    About 90% of the people I work with have said to me "They're making another Transformer movie?" in the past few months. Not a lot of hype around here, so where's all the suspense Bay is trying to build? Mainly in the fandom is my guess.
    Also, I'd be willing to bet that the GIJoe trailer draws the attention of more football fans than the TF trailer. After all, there's ninjas in GIJoe.

    I've been thinking alot about the trailer lately, and I think that there will be plenty of action footage in it, or even shots from newly added Transformers. Why? Because millions of people watch the SuperBowl. It is indeed one of the best ways to attract great attention. Man, I can't wait. Saturday I'm going to see and support my football club FC Groningen in an away match in The Hague here in the Netherlands, and then the next day, finally the TROTF trailer. Can't freaking wait. But to answer your question: I think it's safe to say that the trailer is finished, yes.

    No, it's the superbowl. Way more people will be watching than would take the time to seek out a transformers ad on the web--and many of those football fans are specifically paying attention to the commercials, as the superbowl has gained the reputation for high-budget/interesting/funny commercials.

    It wouldn't be a waste of money at all. Suppose it was released on the internet first. Would that prevent people from watching it when it's on the superbowl? The primary aim behind showing the ad during that mega-expensive event is to reach as many people as possible, and that's not the same thing as broadcasting during the mega-expensive event in order to premiere it there only.
