First ‘Transformers 4′ Trailer Coming at the 2014 Super Bowl; Michael Bay Chastises Media
It's a wrap, folks! 'Transformers 4' (officially titled 'Transformers: Age of Extinction') has finished production, director Michael Bay announced today. So when will we be getting our first trailer? Like anything as grandiose as live-action dinobots, Bay needs a big stage, so the 2014 Super Bowl is perfect.
"... Yes, I’m very excited about this new movie," wrote Bay in a statement on his official website revealing both the update on production and the first 'Transformers 4' trailer premiere date.
... we have completed our five and half month shoot. We got back from a month long shoot in China. My crew and I had a fantastic time shooting in Hong Kong and Mainland China. It was an amazing experience, and I love the country. My cast was absolutely fantastic, and a very fun group to work with. We are working hard cutting the movie right now. I think the first piece comes out for the Super Bowl and a teaser right after that.
'Transformers 4' stars Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz in a newly rebooted installment featuring all-new versions of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and the rest of the gang. Plus, as the title 'Age of Extinction' suggests, there will be dinobots!
Of course, he also had something to say about the report going around, claiming Bay stated all the other 'Transformers' movies were goofy and that he made a public apology to the world for making them. His rebuttal:
It is a drag talking to reporters on sets. Why? Because often times they take your words and skew things to their liking? Then the crazy, lazy game of reporting on what other writers story’s reported me saying and then suddenly it becomes skewed Internet truth. So I waste my time to restate exactly what I did say, again.
No I did not ‘apologize’ for any Transformers movies. I did not say I shot the last three movies “less cool” then the new fourth installment. I was talking specifically about camera style and tone, of the first movie compared to how I shot the new installment with a very big scale, cinematic style. I was very specific in saying the first Transformers was shot in a ‘generic suburbia’ area, not trying to be cool with any cinematic flashes. I wanted it to feel like this could happen in any backyard in the United States.
'Transformers 4' is scheduled for release on June 27, 2014.
