    Dinobots transforming? Lockdown vs Optimus? With all these spots they're spoiling all the action that's going to happen. Judgement was a good last trailer for me to hype up the film. I'm determined to stay far away from any more TV spots. I feel like I've seen the whole film now.

    Lol what. We have see a total of like 5 minutes of 2 and a half hours. Chill out. You saw one sloppy, epileptic transformation of grimmy on a bridge and you think it has spoiled all of his action? LOL

    Clearly, you haven't. They always show just the right amount of stuff to get you hyped, and leave the bigger deal to the movie itself.

    And I've determined to stay away from any more new spots, but I'll most likely end up watching them.

    Geezus people, I don't mean I have literally seen 2 1/2 hours of movie from 5 minutes of trailers; it's called hyperbole.

    What I mean is that I think these spots have shown so much and I want to save some of the surprise for the film. So is anyone doing the same or are people happy to see what new footage gets released?

    Can't wait to see dinobots transform!

    That "Villain" spot scared the crap out of me. Lockdown in the swamp, Lockdown talking, Lockdown's henchmen or are those his allies. I found it disturbing that there are 4 more creatures like him on the ship. 5 total, could they be the Bayverse Quintessons?

    I get the idea behind this

    We've seen enough of a majority of the scenes to spoil when they happen in the film and why they happen. Those who are conscious about the plot of the film when watching the trailers will easily be able to piece together the parts that remain unseen to a high degree of accuracy.

    Personally I feel its ruined a lot of the moments that I would have enjoyed seeing first-hand in the cinema - such as the Optimus capture/torture scene and a majority of the Dinobots action scenes.

    Even if they were spoiling a shitload of the movie, which they aren't, Transformers isn't exactly high-teir film that I'm so concerned about being spoiled.

    I'm with you Shizuka . It seems like we went from having nothing but the Super Bowl trailer to all of a sudden there are 4 trailers and 15 tv spots (yes, an exaggeration lol). I was excited to see new stuff, but now I don't want to get too spoiled; especially with the movie only 2 weeks away. I haven't watched the spots related to the dinobots' transformation or Lockdown talking for that reason. It may not spoil everything, but there are things I want to see for the first time on the big screen.

    I understand they need to ramp up the marketing, but I wasn't expecting this "onslaught". I hope their strategy works and gets people to the theater, but I will avoid watching any new footage until after I've seen the movie at least once :D

    I'll probably forget everything what happened in the trailers and tv spots when I'll watch the movie.
