    No, I'm bellpeppers.

    If we do get anything new, it'll be just a little bit mixed in what we have already seen. The previous trailer was 3 minutes long. This SB ad is only 30 seconds. Do we really expect anything new?

    They paid so much money for the same footage that was shown already 3 times?(or were there more tv spots than that?)That's just dumb already.

    Well, we'll see.
    I'll either be right or wrong.

    I...I don't see your logic here. We've always gotten something new and I don't understand why you might think otherwise.

    I feel the same with the people who thought there wasn't going to be a Superbowl spot. Nothing has changed this time around (well, besides the new writers): we still have Bay, Paramount, Bay-plosions, annoying camera angles, Bee, etc.

    I haven't given a reason.
    I just don't predict anything new in a 30 second add, that's all. If there is, it'll probably be just a little bit.

    And I'm either right, or wrong. We'll know game day.

    Is it really that big a deal?

    That's a good point. I'm not going to say there will be no new footage but I am not expecting anything mind blowing from 30 seconds.

    I dunno, I damn near shat myself when Grimlock showed up in the AoE TV spot.
    But yeah, I'm sure none of it will be AS mind-blowing as the next full trailer will surely be.

    It's the Superbowl, of course there'll be something new. I bet they didn't want to show anything new until. ;)

    I'd understand your statement if it had a basis. We're expecting mostly new footage as foretold by history. A lot of money goes into these ads to waste it on previously seen footage.

    All is relative to your definition of "mind blowing", but these trailers are made to persuade the general audience into watching the films, and the Superbowl is the most prominent way to get exposure. Expect at least something interesting, especially considering the competition they have this year.

    I'm in the uk Super Bowl ain't much of a thing here.... so it's waiting for the update it's online for viewing for me!! Not expecting vastly huge plot defining points to appear in a 30sec spot, but there will be some crazy special shizzle going on that's for sure.....it's all gotta feed the super bowl hype machine hasn't it!!??? So it's not going to be anything less than EPIC!

    Really?

    2007- the 1st Transformers trailer WAS the Super Bowl trailer.

    2009- The 1st ROTF trailer WAS the Super Bowl trailer.

    Dec 10 2010- the 1st trailer for DotM @ 2:29 long.


    2011 Super Bowl trailer @ 32 seconds long:


    2014- it looks like the Super Bowl was once again the 1st trailer @ 42 seconds long.

    Now it's true that for DotM both trailers showed drastically different footage... but it's not as if the 1st trailer showed a whole lot.

    So here we are just before game day with a 30 second spot ahead of us, a whopping 3 minute trailer that showed quit a bit, and a couple tv spots that more or less recycled the same footage.

    So no- I'm not expecting a whole lot of new; and if anything not much.

    I'll be happy to be wrong, but as of now I'm not expecting anything- except a couple "WHONG, WHONG" sound effects with black backgrounds

    The announcement trailer.
    Seriously. That's what they called it.
    Forgot about that really. And based on that I'm gonna have to say....




    ... I still don't think we'll see anything new. And if we do it won't be much. But I'll be happy to be wrong.

    That doesn't make any sense but whatever. They're not stupid enough to spend 5 million dollars on already-seen footage.

    ^ Okay that one was pretty good lol.

    It really surprises me that there are people who think it's gonna be mostly the same footage. Yeah a small portion of the 30 seconds will hold already seen footage, most of it will be dominated by new footage. And these movies aren't the only ones with new-footage superbowl spots.

    Seriously, just because the last 3 tv spots have been reused trailer footage does not mean suddenly the superbowl spot will do the exact same thing. And if we're being realistic here, it actually means they've been saving using new footage just for this occasion.
