The news that the knockout figure of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley does not appear in the new Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon trailer is temporarily disappointing. But she’ll be in the next one (fact). Of more immediate concern / excitement is the enormous robot-sized cover-up that does feature.

In the trailer, the Apollo 11 mission discovers a crashed alien spaceship in what, for an astronaut already wrestling with the gravity - yes, that is the right word - of his lunar triumph, represents a real whopper of a ‘Holy cow!’ moment.


On slide: Rosie Huntington Whiteley replaces Megan Fox in the movie


Stinker: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was not a critical success

How excited are you about this film? As excited as this kid?

NO CHANCE. You see, he’s young enough not to have witnessed Megan Fox’s 100 Sexiest winning debut in the 2007 original. He wasn’t there. He didn’t even have eyes. Everything is fresh and new and exciting. The first time he goes to the cinema, it’ll be to see Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in 3D. Sweet mercy. The first time FHM went to the cinema it was to see He-Man. In Woking.
