The highly anticipated second sequel to Michael Bay's 'Transformers,' 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon,' opens July 1, and Paramount/DreamWorks has released a brand new trailer.

The film stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Patrick Dempsey, Tyrese Gibson, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, John Turturro, Kevin Dunn and Julie White.

This time round the Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the Moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it and learn its secrets. Naturally, the Earth (well, at least Chicago) sees the brunt of the fighting -- and destruction.

Watch the trailer after the jump.
