Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts First Clip Proves The Franchise Hasn't Dropped That Corny Dialogue

Michael Bay first lit the cinematic match of the "Transformers" franchise and sent it sky-high in 2007. The franchise built on warring robots hasn't gone without three essential ingredients since then: shape-shifting Cybertronians, spinning camera shots, and wince-inducing dialogue. We don't want to jump the gun, but by the looks of the brand new clip for "Transformers: Rise of the Beasts," the latter might well be out in full force. This is courtesy of a new leading Autobot, Mirage, voiced by Pete Davidson.

The new footage shows what looks to be the first clash between the Autobots, led by Peter Cullen's Optimus Prime, and the animal-imitating Maximals, led by Ron Perlman's Optimus Primal. While it's certainly a pretty cool sight to behold for fans of the franchise, it's the back and forth between these oversized Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em Robots that is pretty rusty. 

Hearing phrases like, "Stranger danger" yelled out by Autobots isn't something that fans might have expected, but that's just what we hear in the clip. And not to sound too disheartening, but we really don't think that "your boy's got this," after all.

Optimus Prime and Peter Cullen's classic voice save the day in Rise of the Beasts clip

Showing a longer preview of a snippet we've already seen in the second trailer for "Transformers: Rise of the Beasts," Noah Diaz (Anthony Ramos) and Elena (Dominique Fishback) are out in the wild when Perlman's silver-plated gorilla chest-thumps his way on the scene. From there, Mirage's effort to get the drop on "Donkey Kong" (yeesh) is quashed when Primal's other allies arrive, and things look like they're about to get very metal. Thankfully, the reassuring part is Peter Cullen dropping in with his legendary soothing tones to calm things down or fire things up, depending on which side of the oversized CGI cannon you're standing on.

We get it, though, okay? We get that when sitting down for a film about giant robots turning into other things that aren't robots, the film isn't going to be loaded with dialogue as sharp as a Bumblebee's shin guards. What we do hope is that the excessive amount of banging and clanging of metal heroes trying to stop a planet-munching terror will be enough to distract us when "Transformers: Rise of the Beasts" rolls out into theaters on June 9. And if it does? Well, that's just Prime.
