On Friday, the fourth movie in the live-action Transformers series of films opens in theaters. This one is called ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction,’ and, like its predecessors, it’s poised to become one of the biggest films of the year, if not the biggest. What’s odd is that in the buildup for this movie, I haven’t heard Shia LaBeouf’s name once -- you know, the guy who was the star of the previous three ‘Transformers’ movies.

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.
