We're four movies into Michael Bay's 'Transformers' series and the redesigned robots are still a sore point for many fans. Hasbro knows this as well as anyone, and they're going to use that to make sure you drop some serious dough on new toys! The company revealed its new Comic-Con 2014 special edition toys, which should punch you right in the nostalgia box: it's the original Dinobots in their original animated series designs!
Transformers: Age of Extinction
It seems the "super ticket" is the way of the future, and 'Transformers 4' is the latest blockbuster release to get in on the action, partnering with Regal Entertainment to give fans more bang for their bucks ... at an additional fee, of course.
We're just a little over a week away from the release of 'Transformers: Age of Extinction,' the latest in Michael Bay's action-packed robot saga, and we've got a whole set of new photos and TV spots to hold you over until then -- featuring your favorite Transformers, some puny humans (except for Mark Wahlberg, who is anything but puny), and yes, a really awesome Dinobot.
According to Uber's official site, this extremely limited event will allow certain lucky users to meet Optimus Prime for a ride (in his truck form, of course). All you have to do is be in the right city at the right time
In just a couple of weeks, we'll get to see the fourth installment in Michael Bay's 'Transformers' saga when 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' hits theaters, and today we've got the new IMAX poster featuring Mark Wahlberg, Optimus Prime and one very awesome-looking Dinobot.
If the new 'Transformers 4' TV spot is any indication, this is going to be one crazy-ass movie. We state that knowing just how bizarre and brain-shattering (in a good or bad way) the previous film got. Look at it this way: 'Transformers 4' will be the only 2014 release to feature Mark Wahlberg giving a giant, transforming, Dinobot-riding robot a pep talk.
'Transformers 4' is purportedly a soft reboot of the franchise, setting up an entirely new set of adventures and carrying on with a mostly new human cast. However, director Michael Bay is still at the helm, so it's no surprise it still, for better or worse, feels like the same thing. You already know if that delights or horrifies you, and the latest TV spots aren't going to change your mind.
With the movie out in a month, the viral marketing for 'Transformers 4' has entered full swing and the results are certainly dramatic. Like the best online marketing gimmicks, a new series of videos and posters treat the world of 'Transformers' as actual reality and present themselves as anti-machine propaganda. A new teaser is actually a video asking humanity to never forget the invasion of Chicago by alien robots (as seen in 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon') and the new posters are propaganda signs, rallying people to "keep Earth human."
Could this be the summer of Kelsey Grammer? The 'Cheers' and 'Fraiser' star has made attempts at the big screen before (he played Beast in 'X-Men: The Last Stand'), but this year he stars in two of the summer's bigger sequels: 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' and 'The Expendables 3.' And now Grammer gets the spotlight in the latest TV spots for 'Transformers 4.'
'Transformers: Age of Extinction' has just debuted a new trailer, and it's been released just in time to play before this weekend's 'Godzilla.' It's as if Michael Bay and company are saying "yeah, you've may have a fire breathing gigantic lizard, but we've got fire breathing gigantic dinobots. Check. Mate."
