New Trailer and Character Posters for ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’

I’m what you might call a Michael Bay apologist. Generally speaking, the guy makes pretty dumb blockbusters for mass audiences (although I legitimately think there’s a lot more going on in Pain & Gain than many gave it credit for), and the man can compose one hell of a gorgeous camera shot. That artistry is on full display in this brand new trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction, along with the same kind of mechanized chaos you’re used to seeing from this franchise. Also, Dinobots. Watch it below:

 

Even though there is 100% more Kelsey Grammer in this film than the other Transformers movies, there’s likely not a lot here that will convince you to get excited about this franchise if you aren’t already a fan. What, like the presence of dinosaur-robot hybrids is going to be the thing that pulls you in? This is more of a shout-out to longtime fans of the toys, and it’s fine with me – it gives Bay a chance to go back to the kind of massive moviemaking he’s known for, and will hopefully build him either A) enough cash or B) enough goodwill with Paramount that he’ll be able to make a couple more smaller films along the lines of Pain & Gain before he jumps off the deep end into another huge project again.

I’d love to hear what you guys think about this trailer. On your way to the comment section, be sure to check out some character posters for the movie.

    Yeah Man! I love this franchise. The cinematography is amazing. Bay’s scripts may not possess the deepest subject matter but I defy anyone to put a more grandiose display on the screen. I will be there!

  • Susan P Graham

    Mark Wahlberg? I will miss Shia LeBouf. I am, as are the kiddos, about this one. They have been asking about the Dinobots. I wonder what else Bay has in him. I will definitely check out Pain and Gain.

  • Richard R Moore

    It is scary to think this may be Bay’s forte. I sure hope his Pain and Gain goes deeper than this. Great for $$$$. Career?

  • Ernest B Ingalls

    Transformers Roll Out! Yeah Baby! I cannot tell you how excited I am to see this 4th installment of this storyline. HUGE spanning shots, Off the Chain spec effects…… All this and Dinobots too?

    I still have a collection of the first gen toys! I’m hoping this flick is as good as the others in its content and panoramas! Grimlock Rules!

  • Andrew L Gonzalez

    I don’t know if this is gonna get me there. I hope that this one isn’t just a pocket liner. Sometimes making another isn’t always the best idea.

  • William B Valencia

    My boy and I will be there fo sho! We are both huge fans of this franchise. This one should be even better. He loves the Dinobots.
