First Image of Optimus Prime from TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION

by     Posted 279 days ago


We’ve seen images of the human characters from Transformers: Age of Extinction, which is all well and good, but people show up for the Autobots and Decepticons.  They’ll also be showing up for Dinobots in the new movie, but for now we have the first look at good old’ Optimus Prime who now looks…old.  The red paint is now almost completely gone, a lot of his gears are laid bare, and his expression is much meaner.  I’m curious to see how this new appearance will carry over to other transformers, and if it’s an indicator of a far more serious tone (or at least as serious as movie can be where vehicles turn into giant alien robots).  It’s worth noting that the image of the Transformers 4 toy we saw a couple months ago had more color, so perhaps the Optimus Prime on the Empire Magazine cover isn’t the one we see at the beginning of the film.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li BingbingTransformers: Age of Extinction opens in theaters on June 27, 2014.

    Jesus Christ, Michael Bay sucks.

  • sureimdown

    They can say whatever they want about Michael Bay and his weightless direction of explosions and half-naked models, i’m still totally getting in line to see this. But I do admit it’s a little ironic that this is the cover feature of the Oscars Special. Made me chuckle. No one’s expecting any oscar-winning performances watching Optimus blow the hell out of some decepticons.

    • me

      Everything you said there I was thinking the exact same thing, even the irony of it featuring the Oscars

    • brNdon

      If they added a “Most Explosion in a Movie” category, Bay could not be beat.

      • The Flobbit

        Snyder in Man of Steel certainly tried his best…

  • Kale

    This is the first and last time,that Michael Bay and the oscars will be mentioned in the same magazine together.

  • Random Bystander

    Stop it! Bad Michael Bay! Bad!

  • mattinacan

    bay’s transformer movies are the worst movies ever put to film

    • StarScream

      Have you seen Norbit!?

      • mattinacan

        yea transformers 1,2,3 and norbit are about even

    • The Flobbit

      They are not as bad as: The Star Wars Christmas Special, The Room, Birdemic, Manos: Hands of Fate, Santa Buddies, and Animals United.

  • Adam Collins

    Say what you will about Michael Bay, but he does have two films in the Criterion Collection.

    • The Flobbit

      Someday I bet Adam Sandler will too.

    All I’m thinking here is “SWORD” from Pacific Rim. Jeez…who else left to rip off?

    • tarek

      Optimus has the same posture as Obi Wan in ROTS

    • Strong Enough

      i think he had a sword in the first one.

  • The Flobbit

    Confirmed: I will not see this, nor do I give a crap.

  • cloud720

    I still can’t believe Shia Labouf dropped out of this franchise to go make porno movies.

    • Gojiro

      Changed his name to Shelia Le Boof?

  • winston16s

    Seriously, what a bunch of babies. I swear you people just like to bitch. Grow up already. If you hate Bay and these movies so much, just ignore them.

    • straight arrow

      What are you? His attorney?

      With that said, I loved his first transformer film, but since then, the horrible endings, the bland one liners, the crappy characters not transformers, its just been too much. Its time to let a new director bring a fresh take on this. No reboot, just bring a new journey and direction style that these characters deserve. Tired of all the flashy crap bay does with this, feels like one huge car commercial that never wants to end.

    • sense11

      I do already, I haven’t spent money on the franchise since part 1 but … Ive been a fan of The Transformers for 30 years & I’m entitled to an opinion on how shitty and lazy these transformer designs are.

      • winston16s

        Well, I guess you should make your own Transformers movie then, huh? The Michael Bay (I don’t like him either) thrashing is getting old by now. They are making billions of dollars, so why would they change their formula? Regardless, more than half of the people who complain about these movies will still see them.

  • tarek

    Age on Extinction… if only this could apply to Bay’s Transformers.

  • Brandon

    Say hello to ya mother for me.

  • Baz Hood

    The movies, unfathomably, make millions so theyll keep makin em! Despite being garbage and shitting all over what Transformers once was!

    Optimus has a completely new look. Not sure if that’s a good thing, I have to see more.

  • name

    “Hey, hey Optimus, come over here, come here. I just… I don’t wanna fight anymore, man.”
    This is something Mark Whalberg would say.

  • sense11

    Still looks like a mangled metal piece of shit that no one can make out,

  • Alex

    I remember having an Optimus Prime toy when I was a kid and I remember Marky Mark. Man, I’m old.

  • ClarenceBoddicker

    Garbage. And wtf is going on with Wahlberg’s eyebrows in that picture?? He looks like a goddam Vulcan.

  • The_Smirking_Revenge

    Wow, I’m surprised Michael Bay isn’t front and center of this pic.

    This movie will suck epic donkey balls.

    Okay, here’s a funny question: When Mark Wahlberg has that look on his face, are we to take him seriously, or are we supposed to laugh? Don’t get me wrong. I love his acting. But this is exactly What I find fascinating about his acting choices. :)

  • somejackball

    well, as much as everyone wishes the series went extinct, remember, this is a reboot.. gonna be a few more nightmares before it’s all over!

  • poppincherry

    You can see the plot by just looking at the three sorry ass cast members.
    Mark is serious and will grimace throughout the film. He’s a working man hero. Blue collar, Bostonite-esque lineage who will figure it all out by the 3rd act.
    That dude? Smart, probably ivy league maybe a stint in the the armed services.
    Three word to describe him: Side kick bitch!
    The girl? One word: HOE.
    Hoe will scream, hoe will stumble while running, hoe will get caught, escape, get saved and fall into the arms of Mark. Ahhh!
    This movie will be so totally fucking stupid.

  • Faptain America

    Transformers: Birth of Voltron?

  • Zackary Schejbal

    It most likely will be cybertronian

  • Hurpadurpdeedurr

    So, am I the only one here who’s gonna go to the theatre simply to watch the giant robots beat the living shit out of each other?

    I am?


  • Steve

    Really funny how people lke to slag off these films, but sit there and watch them. Fact is they will make a shit load of money because they are in fact awsome. It depends what you want from a film, when i go and watch these movies i expect to see some robots beat on some other robots for two hours, and that is exactly what i get to see.

  • ScoobyDooFTW

    Optimus’s new design is beautiful. Screw all haters and Geewhuners, the cinematic Transformers are awesome, even though having a few flaws.
