Well, it’s always been all-out robot war in the “Transformers” franchise, I guess, but it sure looks like it’s REALLY all-out robot war this time. And as always, those annoying humans are in the way and making terrible, terrible decisions when it comes to Optimus Prime and company. It’s a good thing ol Optimus is extremely patient with them, cause if I was him, I’d go all Megatron on their asses, but maybe that’s just me.

Check out the latest trailer for Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction.” It looks insane. Dumb as a rock, of course, but insane if you’re in this for the action. More action. And even more action. One ticket, please!

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION is the fourth film in director Michael Bay’s global blockbuster franchise. 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.

Starring Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Sophia Myles, Bingbing Li, Titus Welliver, and TJ Miller.

The robots return this June 27th.

  • schnydz

    More of the same. But hey it’s summer!

  • Lexavi80

    And here I thought Michael Bay couldn’t be more crazy after Transformers 3.

      Gotta up the ante somehow right?

    k….I’m in because of the Dinobots.

    A day may come when Michael Bay’s movies flop. Where we forsake his idiocy and stop giving him all our hard earned cash. But it is not this day. An hour of intelligence and ground breaking storylines when the age of dumbed down movies comes crashing down.
    But it is not this day! This summer the world pays!

      LMAO!!! Oh my God that was good man!! I But yeah not as long as America dumbs down things period. We have and always will love our big dumb action movies. And that’s not going away anytime soon. As long as people want to see big explosions and mindless action, there will always be the summer blockbuster. There will always be Michael Bay, or someone to take his place.
      In the meantime if you want a thought provoking action movie, well, I dunno, you may just be SOL for a bit. Unless Days of Future Past counts.

      • Aegon the Conqueror

        Well Winter Soldier was thought provoking, very much so. The movie had an enormous undercurrent of a debate on the ethics of security.

        • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

          Indeed it was. Marvel movies (though not all of them) tend to be more thought provoking. Hell CBMs period for the most part. But then again those NEED good stories in order to survive. Those movies live and die on story and character. Transformers, unless you’re telling the story of the Transformers themselves, which these really aren’t about, the story kind of becomes muddled with the human factor, and they haven’t really had that many worth while human characters, and haven’t given the transformers enough character. So it gets boiled down to action bears strung together by a thin plot. Such is the way of the summer blockbuster. Not all will like, but that’s okay. Things will explode, people will watch, and money will be made. All I’m saying is not everything has to be of the Winter Soldier’s caliber to be a fun entertaining movie. Not every action movie has to make you connect dots, and follow a twisty plot, and keep you guessing the whole time. Like I said sometimes people just want to watch things go boom!

            But why are my beloved childhood franchises caught up in this vicious cycle! That’s my problem. I don’t have a problem with Jason Statham movies cause it’s not harming anyone and if people enjoy them who am I to judge? But Michael Bay is messing with my childhood here man! If he touches Redwall I’m gonna fucking murder him!

            Simply put, and I like you dude, You’re holding on to the nostalgia of your childhood. You ever go back and watch some of the stuff we grew up with. It really doesn’t hold up today. Don’t get me wrong I love my childhood, and my memories of those shows are still near and dear to me. But the reality is that the stories then weren’t that good (with some exceptions obviously). There are gems among the show but for the most part the stories were Decepticons hatch plan to get energon, take over the planet, destroy the Autobots, find McGuffin, etc., and Autobots stop them, repeat. And if you look at the films they’re pretty much hour and a half long episodes. The comics were better at telling stories, and the resurgence of the popularity have allowed even more to be told in comics now, and as I said on Prime. But my point is that the shows really weren’t that well written. You’re getting updated versions of the show lol. People by nature dislike change, and any change to something beloved is always going to be met with resistance, but don’t resist out of blind loyalty to nostalgia. So again if you want a cinematic experience with the Transformers that brings back your childhood I’d suggest TF Prime and the games War for and Fall of Cybertron.

            Yeah man I know you are right. But like I said, we aren’t children anymore. Do what Tolkien did, he wrote the Hobbit for kids and later when he wrote Lord of the Rings he wrote it for the same group of fans who had now grown up.
            But yeah you are right, after the Power Rangers announcement I started watching some old episodes and man it is painful.

            SEE!!! Bay and the writers are doing what they can for a short amount of time (1hr 45min-2hr). But you get too deep with something like TF and you lose the fun. I still say better stories could’ve been told, but its what we got, so hopefully moving forward this will be better stuff.

          • Aegon the Conqueror

            Maybe it’s just cause I hate Michael Bay and now he’s in charge of two things I love.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            LOL Feels good to get that off your chest doesn’t it? Let’s just wait and see what happens with TMNT. Bay is only a producer, it’s his money not him in control.

          • Aegon the Conqueror

            Well his money did make em look like Jar Jar Binks.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            LOL!!! OH STOP!!! He didn’t come up with that design. And DOnnie is the only one to me that really looks awkward and its cause of the glasses.

            You’re getting that. Did you not see him in the trailer? You’re getting all upset over one scene. They’re not going to be walking around maskless the whole time.

          • Aegon the Conqueror

            Wait fuck, I embedded the wrong link. That’s not the one I was talking about, that’s the one with the human lips and teeth that freak me out.

          • Aegon the Conqueror

            Yeah. no. I can’t get behind that. If you want that look watch TMNT. But bringing it into a real world with real people, I will stick with what we’re getting. Humanoid turtles. Because other than them walking upright and growing fingers there was nothing remotely human about them physically. And turtles DO have nostrils. Like I said it’s that one scene. Leo looks completely badass, as does Raph. You should really wait til the movie to make a judgment because the few shots we’ve scene were pretty dammed dark and quick. And Images never do anything justice.

    Optimus Prime rides a T-Rex, the internet jizzes in it’s pants.
