Transformers: Age of Extinction

Transformers 4 trailer

‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ is the sequel/reboot to the massively successful ‘Transformers’ franchise. Though director Michael Bay is returning, the majority of the characters from the original trilogy, namely Shia LaBeouf, are gone and have been replaced by a new set of characters, led by Mark Wahlberg. Also new are the ‘Transformers 4′ robots, which are promised to have an all-new look and all-new lineup. The film begins after an epic battle that left a great city torn, but with the world saved. As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history… while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs. With help from a new cast of humans, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen) and the Autobots rise to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. In an incredible adventure, they are swept up in a war of good and evil, ultimately leading to a climactic battle across the world.

  • Director: Michael Bay
  • Written By: Ehren Kruger

Paramount
Paramount

You'll be hard-pressed to find many people who actually liked 'Transformers: Age of Extinction.' But unlike the previous three movies in this franchise, the box office actually reflected that. With the film currently struggling to hit $250 million at the domestic box office (despite doing great numbers overseas), it isn't that surprising that director Michael Bay is jumping ship on 'Transformers 5'.

The ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Reboot is Really Just a ‘Transformers’ Remake

Paramount
Paramount

If something seems strangely familiar about the new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot opening Friday, that’s not too surprising, since Jonathan Liebesman’s film is little more than a thinly veiled remake of the 'Transformers' movies. Sure, the nominal source material for this latest ninja-turtles adventure is Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s 1980s comic books, as well as the cartoon series and three live-action films from the early ‘90s, all of which led to a merchandising bonanza built around the characters’ good-natured valor, love of pizza, and fondness for exclamations like “gnarly!”, “radical!” and “cowabunga!” Yet a closer inspection of Liebesman’s adaptation reveals that, far more than those predecessors, the real inspiration for this wannabe-blockbuster is its producer Michael Bay’s four robot-centric extravaganzas. As proof, here’s a rundown of the many clues that 'TMNT' is nothing but 'Transformers' in a half shell.

PARIS, TX — Local seemingly well-liked mechanic is killed by Transformer death bomb.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Makes About as Much Money as You’d Expect

Look, everyone knows that it's your obligation as a human being to go see a new 'Transfomrers' movie when it comes out whether you want to or not.

How In The World Is ‘Snowpiercer’ An Art House Movie?

Snowpiercer
The Weinstein Co.

It’s a strange time we live in where two of the non-‘Transformers’ movies released this weekend are considered small indie films, yet one is a romantic comedy (sort of) staring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler and the other - 'Snowpiercer' - is an action movie starring the guy who plays Captain America.

Trying to Understand the ‘Transformers’ Franchise: What Is the Meaning of All This?

Transformers 4 explosion
Paramount Pictures

After watching the first three ‘Transformers’ films and sitting through the fourth -- ‘Age of Extinction’ -- it becomes less and less clear who these films are really made for and what Bay’s grand cinematic purpose is beyond cashing in on brand recognition. The films are too mature and crude for children, yet too infantile for adults.
