Originally popularized by Alfred Hitchcock, the term "MacGuffin" refers to an object, person or location that drives the plot of story, with characters generally struggling to obtain said object, person or location before the opposition. Over the decades, the word has mutated and its exact meaning is often the subject of debate, but it's still, at the core, the same thing. The MacGuffin is that special something at the center of a movie that makes everything happen.
Although many movies have a MacGuffin of some kind (with some being more obvious than others), we're not here to talk about the best or the most well-used. Today, we're going to talk about the stupidest MacGuffins. When we say stupid, we mean that in both a harsh and loving way. Some of the MacGuffins on this list are so dumb that they're simply amazing. Others are so idiotic that they make us shake our heads. In any case, there's no arguing that they're all pretty unforgettable.

As you may remember, 'Transformers 3' (dubbed 'Dark of the Moon') climaxed with a massive battle between warring robots that essentially leveled the city of Chicago. We expect nothing less from director Michael Bay, so we didn't bat an eye at that iconic skyline crumbling into a million pieces. However, Bay has shared a new image from the set of 'Transformers 4' that suggests that this massive action set piece has had a lasting impact on the world.

Michael Bay is currently hard at work on 'Transformers 4' that will effectively reboot the franchise while remaining true to the three films that came before it. In order to forge a connection between the original and new trilogy, it looks like Bay will bring back at least one castmember from the first movies. And it sure isn't Shia!

So much of the scuttlebutt around movies is usually half-truths. Three weeks ago we reported that Mark Wahlberg might be up for 'Transformers 4.' The next day it was denied. But now it looks like Wahlberg has been confirmed for the movie by the director himself.

Michael Bay played footsies for a while with doing more 'Transformers' movies, but has signed up for a fourth film, because... well, money. Lots and lots of it. Bay earned $80 Million from the first film (which is the lowest grossing film of the franchise), and gets 8% of the merchandising money, so it's safe to assume that he makes over $100 Million a sequel. But it looks like he's bringing in a new lead.

Michael Bay, much like Michael Corleone, thought he was out. But they pulled him back in. (And that, we promise, is the last time we’ll link Bay to ‘The Godfather’ movies. Ever.) His third ‘Transformers’ movie was going to be his last, but he’s returning for an as-yet-untitled 'Transformers 4,' and in a recent interview, Bay dropped a few hints as to what fans can expect.
