    Hope not.

    That being said, if the Classification is true, this is the 2nd shortest first trailer for a Transformers movie:
    • Transformers 2007 - 1:48
    • Revenge Of The Fallen - 2:17
    • Dark Of The Moon - 2:29
    • Age Of Extinction - 2:34
    • The Last Knight - 2:01

    Nope. Other than the Teaser Trailer for Transformers 2007, all other Transformers Movie Teaser Trailers were well over 2 minutes long. See my post above. :)

    I'm expecting a lot of human shots, explosions, cars flipping in the air, but few Transformers. Seriously though, I hope I'm wrong on the last one.

    Huh, that's interesting! DotM's was really that long? Dang!

    I'm expecting a DOTM style trailer. The opening will make the film seem like a straight forward medieval flick. A group of Knights will be charging towards a threat over a hill. Over the hill it's revealed the threat is a bot, possibly the main villain of the film. After the title pops cut to a quick shot of Optimus on Cybertron or something.

    Haha, I can just imagine people's reactions to that when it comes up in the theater.

    Used to be that way, yeah. But pop culture has muddled the definition of what a "teaser" trailer is so much, that it's basically just a popular way to refer to any first trailer, regardless of length.

    But back in the day, an actual teaser trailer was 15-30 seconds.

    Trailers that catch the audience off guard are always the best.

    I just hope they don't post small teasers of the actual trailer on social media a couple days before the trailer comes out, like they did once or twice back in 2014. Does Hollywood still do that? I haven't seen that happen here recently, now that I think about it.

    Yeah now that I think about it, but I really feel like I've seen a thirty second teaser recently. Or I'm just getting old. I just hope they don't, in the trailers following this one, that they don't show the whole film. Beat for beat. So many films have been diminished in surprise factor when all the good bits get shown in the trailers. And before any says, "Well you don't have to watch them", but trailers have always been vehicles to get people excited for the film, not show a cliff note version of the film.

    Well, Isabella wouldn't have Paramount's permission to post the TF:TLK trailer as that would be the same as breaking the NDA she signed with Paramount. Forgot about the classification process-figured they may have started editing while filming. Bay, though I have my issues, doesn't mess around.

    I assume the trailer will come out on Transformers Tuesday or they'll have an announcent for Transformers Tuesday. Either way we are getting the trailer next week.
