Holy conspiracy! The first trailer for Michael Bay's Transformers: Dark of the Moon is here, and while it isn't full of the director's trademark explodey touch, that title is starting to make a bit more sense.

Get ready for everything you thought you knew about the moon landing to be thrown out the window!

According to this first look, the moon landing not only happened for real, it was part of a supercovert mission to explore a Transformer's spacecraft that had crashed on the, you guessed it, dark side of the moon!

(Though we have to say, the hilarious irony of this moon landing actually being filmed on a soundstage wasn't lost on us.)

With vintage news footage from 1969 woven in—Hi, Mr. Kronkite!—Bay does a great job of setting up some suspense and mystery...a much better intro to the flick than things blowing up left and right.

We don't get any time with stars Shia LaBeouf or not Megan Fox Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, but the trailer does a great job of sucking us in and making us genuinely excited for more.

Check it out and tell us what you think. Excited for this third installment?

Transformers: Dark of the Moon hits theaters July 1, 2011.
