If the clip of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Transformers: Dark of the Moon didn't tickle your fancy, perhaps it's time for an oldie but goodie? A second clip has been released, and it features Josh Duhamel's character, Lt. Colonel William Lennox. It's time to go to war, boys!

We're not sure what the context of this clip is, but we're pretty sure the Decepticons have something to do with it. Lennox tries to rally the troops, who may or may not come home after embarking on their new mission. It's very Independence Day—less effective but ID4 nonetheless.

The clip shows us the typical all-or-nothing mentality that we often see in military movies. But with all of this going on, we have one question. Where's Tyrese Gibson? Lennox and Epps are like Bert and Ernie, the Captain and Tennille, Bananas in Pajamas—you get the point.

Even though this clip doesn't have any real tension, the scene of the soldiers jumping out of the plane looks pretty cool. The camera angles make you feel like you're floating in the air with them.

It's great that they're releasing new footage from the movie, but when are we going to see the Transformers themselves in action? Scratch that. We'd settle for a conversation between the Autobots. Just give us something!
