“This is not war… It’s human extinction.”
There’s a slew of new footage in this trailer to get excited about. The CGI looks awesome especially during the part near the end of the video where Optimus Prime, riding on the back of Grimlock, jumps off and starts swinging his sword and the short snippets with the Dinobots. Granted, when news that Michael Bay would be directing yet another ‘Transformers’ film came out, many fans were a bit skeptical about his ability to relaunch and revive the franchise, but this film may actually surprise us all. But then again, trailers are designed to get movie goers excited about a film no matter how bad the actual story could be.
So while we’ll hold our opinions of ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ until we see it (yes, we’ll be reviewing the film for you), check out the trailer below and see if you’re willing to give this start of another trilogy a chance.
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.
Directed by Michael Bay from a script by Ehren Kruger, ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ stars Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Li Bingbing , Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, T. J. Miller, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor and Titus Welliver and will be released in theaters on June 27, 2014.
