Ever since the Super Bowl commercial there hasn’t been much in the way of new footage for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. That changed today with the release of theatrical trailer. All the main characters are back for the final entry in the trilogy though Rosie Huntington-Whiteley replaces Megan Fox as the love interest. Transformers: Dark of the Moon is being filmed in 3D for a July 1st release date.

The Autobots, led by Optimus Prime, are back in action, taking on the evil Decepticons, who are determined to avenge their defeat in 2009’s Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends. There’s new characters too, including a new villain in the form of Shockwave, a longtime “Transformers” character who rules Cybertron while the Autobots and Decepticons battle it out on Earth.
