    It been over a day now since the first teaser trailer for the latest movie dropped. Once again it delivered the usual amount of M.Bay kinda stuff - explosions, key moments from the movie, main cast, etc. Undoubtedly it was a great experience. The cinematography, the narration, the music and everything was exceptionally well put together. If I have to summarize the overall reactions I'll have to use this picture

    What is your opinion on the trailer? Did you like it or not, and what exactly/which aspects of it.
    Me personally it got me by surprise a little bit. I have to admit that the highlight (biggest of them) was Optimus fighting Bumblebee, which irritated some fans and pleased others. I've watched a lot of other reactions to the trailer as well and many people actually feel a little more confident, even some of the critics kinda feel "in the middle", like not totally unimpressed.
    If I have to be completely honest I'd give it a 7.5/10. As I said before it is a good sign that it felt connected to the previous movies and while it all might still turn out to be bull shit, I have hope that this time it will be different, in a positive way!

    What about you guys? What are your expectations after this trailer - low, medium, high?

    At this point i do not expect that much different besides maybe a more coherent story. We're five movies in, we should know what to expect, take it or leave it I guess.
