This would probably be better of in General Discussion.
Anyway, in one of the trailers they even point out that this film is from the creators of Transformers. By that, they mean the producers. When I saw the first trailer, I immediately thought, "so this is what they did with the leftover TF footage." I hated it. Then I saw the 2nd trailer and hated it a bit less. And not because it's very similar to TF, but because I was looking forward to this movie being about Earth and humans fighting each other, not aliens. It's been a while since I've seen a movie with an awesome naval battle, and considering the title and nature of the game it's based on, this should have been the best ever.
I think that the whole "invading aliens" concept is getting worn out as it has saturated Hollywood in the last 6-7 years, probably beginning with the first TF movie. It was fine to have that, and even RoTF (as shitty as it was) and obviously DotM was a monster hit. But, they had Cowboys and Aliens (which was pretty good), Predators (also fun), Skyline (f**king LAME) and the upcoming Prometheus (not being a fan of the Alien franchise, I could not care less about it). There were a few others that I can't think of, but, personally, I've had enough of aliens for a while. Let's get back to kicking other humans' asses. For this reason, I'm very happy to see Stallone and Ahnuld making a comeback. 80s-90s action FTW.
