Why was the Teaser Trailer so much darker than the Theatrical one?

    Seriously, when the teaser came out a couple of months ago, the first thing I thought was "Oh, crap! This looks a lot more serious than the first one!"
    For some reason, that wasn't the case when I saw the new trailer. Don't get me wrong. ROTF still looks effin' incredible, and 10x better than the first movie. But, why the sudden change of tone between trailers?

    Care to explain? Looks pretty dark to me... let me guess, the first quarter of it with the humans, correct?

    its probably because the full trailer has daytime in it lol a teaser pretty much all at night would set a darker tone for me ha

    Because all the teaser did was show OMG DECEPTICONZ!?

    The final trailer however gives us both sides of the story.

    I'll have to admit, when I watched it with my eyes closed, it was WAY darker than when I watched them with them open.

    The music played a huge part in it. The teaser had this ominous, industrial style music in the backdrop, and the trailer had an almost upbeat, militaristic style song playing with it.

    Right on.

    The music really changes the whole tone between the two trailers.
