Teaser trailer

The images on this page are taken from the first teaser trailer, available at the official Transformers movie website,

The teaser trailer was published on the official Transformers movie website on June 29. It is set on Mars, but according to director Michael Bay none of the content in the teaser trailer will actually be used in the film, and no parts of the film will take place on Mars. The teaser trailer will be shown in North American theatres starting July 7. Will it be shown in Scandinavian theatres too? We don't know at the moment, but there's no reason why it shouldn't be shown eventually.
