Paramount has released some new Transformers: Age of Extinction images.  In the movie, Mark Wahlberg plays a burgeoning inventor/family man who runs into trouble when he accidentally discovers a beat-up Transformer.  While we’ve been seeing plenty of the human characters, Bumblebee and Optimus Prime get their due attention in these images, especially Optimus.  There’s an image of the lead Transformer, and I’m pretty sure it’s not going to be in the movie, but it’s so overly dramatic that I love it.  He’s on his knees, looking towards the heavens (do Autobots have a god?), and this is something that looks like it should be an oil painting on a wall or spray-painted on a van.  You can almost hear him screaming, “Whhhhhyyy?!” or “Nooooooo!”

Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li BingbingTransformers: Age of Extinction opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on June 27th.

The fourth film in the Transformers franchise hits theaters in a couple of months, but a pair of late-minute additions to the cast have been made.  Director Michael Bay announced today that John Goodman and Ken Watanabe (Inception) will provide the voices for two new autobots in Transformers: Age of Extinction.  Goodman will play Autobot Hound and Watanabe will play Drift, while Peter Cullen reprises his role as the voice of Optimus Prime and Frank Welker will voice Galvatron.  Goodman is no stranger to voice work having starred in two Pixar films—Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University—but this will be Watanabe’s first time voicing a character.

New Transformers: Age of Extinction images have arrived online.  In the movie, Mark Wahlberg plays a burgeoning inventor/family man who runs into trouble when he accidentally discovers a beat-up Transformer.  These images feature Stanley Tucci and Li Bingbing, and according to TFW2005, Tucci plays arrogant designer while Bingbing is the head of the human-created Transformers program, Su Yueming.  We still don’t know much about the movie, but I know this: Stanley Tucci will probably come out unscathed.  No matter how terrible the film, he’s always great (e.g. Jack the Giant Slayer, The Lovely Bones).  Of course, give him a great movie, and he’s unstoppable.  You can’t go wrong with Tucci.

Paramount has released three new Transformers: Age of Extinction images.  Mark Wahlberg plays a burgeoning inventor and family man who runs into trouble when he accidentally discovers a beat-up Transformer.  Judging from these images, he’s equipped to deal with these problems because he’s Mark Wahlberg, super-ripped, and has a swordgun.

New TV Spot for TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Starring Mark Wahlberg

Paramount has released a new TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction.  Mark Wahlberg plays a burgeoning inventor and family man who runs into trouble when he accidentally discovers a beat-up Transformer.  Age of Extinction takes place a considerable time after the events of Dark of the Moon, and the U.S. Government now feels that there is no use for Transformers here on Earth.  This new clip is mostly stuff we saw in the trailer, but I think that even from this 30-second spot, I have a good idea of the plot: one giant robot will hit another giant robot; people scatter in terror.

We saw a bunch of colorful and creative robots in disguise in the film’s trailer, but thanks to new Transformers: Age of Extinction toy images, we can put a few more names with their metallic faces.  Some are familiar, like Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and even the relatively new Grimlock; others give names to that fellow with the parachute, and the two-headed dinobot.  Still more could be a bit spoilery so you might want to avoid if that sort of thing bothers you.

Paramount Pictures has released a new poster for director Michael Bay’s sure-to-be-explosive sequel Transformers: Age of Extinction, and it pits Mark Wahlberg in great peril.  Wahlberg plays a burgeoning inventor and family man who runs into trouble when he accidentally discovers a beat-up Transformer.  Age of Extinction takes place a considerable time after the events of Dark of the Moon, and the U.S. Government now feels that there is no use for Transformers here on Earth.  As can be gleaned in this new poster, Wahlberg and his daughter (played by Nicola Peltz) find themselves in a dire situation when a ginormous ship appears above their home.  Don’t you just hate it when a giant robot spaceship hovers over your nice farmhouse and ruins the rest of your day?

A few minutes before hitting the CinemaCon stage to present some great-looking footage from Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, I managed to get a few minutes on the red carpet with actors Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor.  In the film, Peltz plays Mark Wahlberg’s  daughter and Reynor plays her boyfriend.  During the interview, they talked about their experience working with Bay, filming the action sequences, how they were given 20 minutes-notice for once scene in which they had to run away from a bunch of massive practical explosions, whether the third act of Age of Extinction is non-stop action like the last Transformers movie, and other projects like Bates Motel and Macbeth.  Hit the jump to watch.

The summer movie season is just around the corner, and while 2014 isn’t as overloaded with crazy releases as 2015, there is still plenty to look forward to.  We’ve got sequels, reboots, sequel-reboots, remakes, and even the rare original story all slated to open, and the folks over at Rotten Tomatoes have put together a ranked list of the most anticipated films based on the site’s user rankings.  Coming in at #1 on the list with 100% “want to see” from a total of 110,869 votes is director Bryan Singer’s superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Having helmed the first X-Men in 2000, Singer is one of the godfathers of the modern superhero movie era.  It’s not exactly a shock that fans are eager to see his return to the X-Men franchise, since the time-bending DOFP infuses the new X-Men: First Class cast with the classic X-Men actors from the original films.

New IMAX Poster for TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION

transformers-4-age-of-extinction-imax-poster

Now that we’ve seen a proper trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction, Paramount Pictures has released a new IMAX poster for the Michael Bay-directed film.  Mark Wahlberg takes over lead acting duties in what’s essentially a reboot of Bay’s Transformers franchise, as he plays a father and inventor who accidentally discovers a discarded Transformer years after the “Battle in Chicago” from Transformers: Dark of the Moon, setting into motion events that make him the target of the U.S. government and result in the appearance of the Dinobots.  This new IMAX poster is basically just a still from the trailer, but it does a nice job of conveying that massive scale that should be a fine fit for the IMAX format.

By now you’ve surely watched (and re-watched) the new trailer for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, so we thought we’d take this opportunity to tease a series of set visit articles we have coming up later this year.  During an action-packed visit to the film’s Detroit set, a small group of journalists had a chance to interview the energetic Bay along with the film’s star, Mark Wahlberg.  And that’s only just scratching the surface of what’s to come!

Also starring Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li Bingbing, Transformers: Age of Extinction opens June 27th.  Hit the jump for our set visit preview.

New Trailer for TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Starring Mark Wahlberg

by     Posted 289 days ago

transformers-age-of-extinction-mark-wahlberg

Paramount Pictures has released a new full-length trailer for director Michael Bay‘s action sequel Transformers: Age of Extinction.  The film takes place some time after the events of the third Transformers pic, Dark of the Moon, and follows an entirely different set of characters.  Mark Wahlberg leads the cast as a mechanic and family man who starts working on what he believes to be a junked truck, only to discover that it’s actually a battle-wounded Transformer.  The main takeaway from this trailer is that Age of Extinction is, for all intents and purposes, a reboot of the Transformers franchise.  Gone are the quips and jokes from a young know-it-all from the first three films, and in their stead, Bay considers a post-war world in which Transformers are no longer needed; the title actually appears to be referring to the main Transformers themselves, not exclusively the Dinobots.  This is still a Michael Bay tentpole, though, so there’s plenty of the director’s signature action on display, but the expanded international scope of the pic is particularly promising and I’m hoping the director has found a tone that sets Age of Extinction apart.

New TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Posters Reveal Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz [Updated with Title Sequence Video]

transformers-4-age-of-extinction-posters-slice

Ahead of today’s new trailer debut, Paramount has unveiled a pair of new character posters for director Michael Bay’s fourth Transformers film, Transformers: Age of Extinction.  Yesterday we got a look at Mark Wahlberg’s character wielding a swordgun on his personal poster, but today’s character posters are decidedly less tame and boast the clichéd tagline, “The Rules Have Changed”.  Jack Reynor plays Shane in the film, a “bad-boy-with-boyfriend-potential,” while Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel) plays Wahlberg’s daughter Tessa.  We should have a much better idea of the plot when the new trailer debuts later today, but for now we get a nice introduction to the film’s human characters.

Hit the jump to take a look at the new posters and check back here on Collider tonight at 7:30pm ET to watch the new trailer.  Transformers: Age of Extinction opens on June 27th. [Update: Michael Bay has also released a short, 10-second video revealing the title sequence for the film, which is now included after the jump.]
