Transformers: Age of Extinction
Decepticons, beware! Optimus and his Autobot warriors are back, newly rebooted and with some heavy artillery they know how to wield -- and should come in handy against those Dinobots. The latest batch of 'Transformers 4' pics get up close with these sort-of familiar faces (as we just said, they got a rebooted design) and tease some serious action to come, as well as an "all is lost moment."
Hot on the heels of Mark Wahlberg receiving his achievement award at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards last night, Paramount unveiled the first official TV spot for 'Transformers 4,' ushering in a new era of 'Transformers' ... with Dinobots! We've also got a few new pics featuring Wahlberg striking some serious action poses.
'Transformers 4' has newly designed autobots, a whole new human cast and some pretty badass-looking dinobots, but according to director Michael Bay, all of that is just the tip of the iceberg. Ahead of the June 27 premiere, Bay revealed that 'Transformers 5' and 'Transformers 6' aren't as far off as we think, as 'Age of Extinction' will kickstart an all-new trilogy. Plus, the man with a penchant for explosions dropped a few new tidbits about the forthcoming dinobot-filled extravaganza.
The 'Transformers' films have operated under director Michael Bay with one basic credo: "Giant F---ing Robots." (It's true! We actually have a cast and crew t-shirt with that printed on the back.) This new 'Transformers 4' poster certainly lives up to that motto as stars Mark Wahlberg and Nicola Peltz beat foot to avoid - what else? - a giant f---ing robot.
The 'Transformers 4' posters have been out in full force, providing us with closer looks at the human cast -- made up of Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor -- and the newly redesigned Optimus Prime. But those folks take a backseat as the latest one-sheet for 'Age of Extinction' points to the arrival of the Decepticons.
'Transformers 4' is not a reboot, but it has done away with the human cast you may have been familiar with after the first three movies. Taking over for Shia LaBeouf is Mark Wahlberg, who's role in this movie is to be the father of a really beautiful girl (Nicola Peltz, taking over for Megan Fox). Presumably he has something else to do because in this new 'Transformers 4' poster, he's got a really, really big alien gun. And he's ready to use it.
'Star Wars: Episode 7' is scheduled to begin filming in May (just about two-and-a-half months from now), so you'd think casting announcements are imminent. So far, we've heard precious little information about who will actually be starring in the new 'Star Wars' films (aside from Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and others from the original trilogy), but is that about to change? The latest rumor has it that the star of one of this year's biggest movies - 'Transformers 4' - will be the star of one of next year's biggest movies, 'Star Wars: Episode 7'.
