Transformers Age of Extinction (2014) Movie Banner Image

They’re back and from the looks of it, they’re ready for battle.

Check out three new images from Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” featuring everyone’s favorite transforming robot sidekick Bumblebee (so, can he talk now, or what?) and the biggest and baddest Autobot of them all, Optimus Prime doing what he does best: which is, yes, looking all big and badass.

An automobile mechanic and his daughter make a discovery that brings down the Autobots and Decepticons – and a paranoid government official – on them.

Starring Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng, Titus Welliver, Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, John Goodman, and Ken Watanabe.

Bumblebee does his thing this June 27th.

    I really want this movie to tank so Michael Bay will leave my childhood alone, but I know it’s not gonna happen.

      Can I ask you what is it that you want out of a Transformers movie? What is it that you want from a TMNT movie? Hell what is it you want from a Masters of The Universe movie?(I know that has nothing to do with Bay, and at this point has fallen further into development hell, but I’d love to hear what you come up with.
      The reason I ask is that Bay’s movies have actually helped revitalize the franchise. People can hate all they want but before Bay came along all we were getting were lame, kiddie cartoons. Then Bay came along and a few years later we get the amazing “Transformers Prime” show that took everything we loved about the G! years, mixed in some of the Bay stuff, and even threw in some nods to other shows. Also got the new games as well. All because Bay’s movies put them back in the spotlight.
      Now look at GIJoe. The first film was laughable. But it still did well enough to warrant a sequel. To top it off, Hasbro’s channel the Hub debuted a GIjoe cartoon the same year as Prime, and it was well received. “GIJoe: Renegades” took the status quo and turned it on it’s head. It too made nods to the original show, had a ton of characters show up (albeit in different versions) but didn’t do nearly as well. The sequel to the movie did a bit better, and was a better film by leaps and bounds, even making me like Channing Tatum as Duke. But Even the Rock couldn’t make the film a true hit.
      My point is don’t blame Bay. As much as I think the man makes spectacles instead of films, he makes fun spectacles (for the most part) and you can’t fault the man, he does have a flair for spectacles. He makes popcorn flicks, plain and simple. That said after AoE I wouldn’t mind a story that takes place back on Cybertron, and not even connected to the Bay films. Give me full on versions of what we saw in War for Cybertron and the sequel Fall of Cybertron.

        Well Masters of the Universe was a bit before my time (I was born in ’91).
        When Transformers and TMNT came out we were kids, yes this is true, but we are not kids anymore and no matter how much we would want to be kids again we can’t be. I guess I want a story that doesn’t require me to shut of my brain entirely. I hate it when a movie makes the audience out to be morons. It’s the main reason why I’ve never enjoyed the Expendables or any of Jason Statham’s movies.
        I want the story to drive the effects, not the other way round. I want actual believable characters played by decent actors. The only two people whose acting I felt was on par in the Transformers movies was Peter Weller and Hugo Weaving and they didn’t even appear on screen.
        Think the Clone Wars, yes they are there for kids, but adults can still enjoy them. The emphasis is more on telling good stories than it is on making things explode.

          Where were you watching these? When I grew up, Transformers and He-Man were on about the same time, year wise. Turtles was actually the late one. I get what you’re saying but the thing is the franchise isn’t exactly made for thought provoking stories. At least not in the limited time they have and with the little bit of character development they do. Like I said they’re popcorn movies. They’re made to be dumb fun. NOT every movie SHOULD have or even NEEDS a deep plot. And sometimes trying to add too much plot can backfire. TF to me while its on earth should be kept simple. If they want to go deep, go back to Cybertron and get into the politics and philosophy of that war.
          But I like a dumb action movie every now and again. Hollywood tries to get to pretentious with their action films sometimes. You mentioned Expendables and Statham films. They do well BECAUSE of that style. They’re throwbacks to 80’s flicks where shit was unbelievable but you didn’t question it, you took it with a grain of salt, laughed and watched things go boom. Some movies should just be enjoyed in the manner you don’t seem to enjoy. I mean if you knit picked every movie none of them would really stand up. At least with Bay flicks you know what you’re getting ahead of time. Don’t like em, don’t watch em. But You can’t really fault the man for putting out dumb fun movies.

            Lol dude South Africa always got things later. Transformers and TMNT didn’t reach our shores till 96-97.
            See I’m not from the 80s I can’t watch movies like that. Never could.
            I’d much rather have someone like JJ Abrahams handle a TF movie. Non thought provoking stories were fine when I was six, I’m not anymore though.

            Ah gotcha. See I have a soft spot for dumb action flicks. sure I like to think when watching a movie, and the best movies have you discussing things LONG after you watched it. But not EVERY movie has to be like that. That’s like saying every book should be serious. The mediums are different so they require different things. Books REQUIRE a strong plot because it’s a literary medium. the plot moves the descriptions of everything along. Movies are a visual medium, plot is good, and necessary but if the movie is just trying to be fun, and over the top or silly or action packed, etc the plot is just there to move from one action set piece to the next. Dredd is a good example of this. Thin straightforward plot, with lots of action. The Raid is as well, and even moreso the Raid 2 shows what you can do when you put in a good plot with the amazing action. Then you have movies like Gladiator, and Braveheart that are dramatic films with action. A different beast altogether.

            JJ Abrams on a TF movie actually wouldn’t be bad. Be he’s just the director. If that’s the case may as well go with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, Abrams (and Hollywood’s ) go to writers. But wait, they WROTE Bay’s TF and Revenge of the Fallen too (though I blame the writers strike for Fallen)! So these guys not only wrote the stuff that some consider bad, but the stuff that some consider amazing too in Transformers Prime!
            If you can’t shut your brain off for a little while just to enjoy yourself, you may just over think things. lol. But if it’s not your cup of tea just don’t watch. there’s plenty of alternative stuff out there man.
