Universal Studios Hollywood has released a short snippet of a trailer for Transformers: The Ride - 3D, with the full version set to air during the Super Bowl on February 5, 2012.
The clip, embedded below, features Transformers hero Optimus Prime delivering a warning message to viewers. The full version is expected to point fans to the Prepare for Battle website, which hosts a variety of videos designed to build anticipation for Transformers: The Ride -3D's debut in May 2012.
Transformers: The Ride - 3D will retain the look-and-feel of the Transformers movie trilogy. A version of the attraction has already opened at Universal Studios Singapore, with the Hollywood installation expected to be largely identical.
The ride will reuse technology from the Amazing Adventures of Spiderman attraction at Universal Orlando's Islands of Adventure, combining 3D animation, animatronics and flight-simulator elements. It will replace the closed Backdraft and Special Effects Soundstages attractions in the Universal Studios Hollywood's Lower Lot, with construction having begun in Fall 2009.
