New Footage from TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Starring Mark Wahlberg

If you really like the band Imagine Dragons, you’ll be thrilled to hear that they’re doing the main song for Transformers: Age of Extinction.  Paramount has released two promos announcing the band’s contribution to the soundtrack, and while I don’t care for their music, the promos do contain new footage.  And it’s important footage because it reveals that there’s a Transformer with a beard and a cigar. Sure, there’s Optimus Prime riding around on a robot dinosaur, but I’m far more amused at the fact that we’re getting a robot with a beard again (there was one in Revenge of the Fallen and god I hate myself for remembering that movie in any way) and he has a cigar.  That’s the kind of lunacy I demand from a Transformers movie.

Hit the jump to check out the new Transformers: Age of Extinction footage, and come back later this week for the new trailer.  The film opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on June 27th, and stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li Bingbing.

    What the heck kind of Transformer has a beard and smokes a giant cigar?

    You Michael Bay fans have helped ruin summer movies, you know that? “But not everything has to be Shakespeare!” No one asked for Shakespeare in a blockbuster, you fools. Just basic competent storytelling.

    And don’t even try to say that Nolan is as bad. Please. Could Bay create Inception? I don’t care if it confused you or not. You and Michael Bay couldn’t have come up with anything half as original if your lives depended on it.

      “You and Michael Bay couldn’t have come up with anything half as original if your lives depended on it.”

      I didn’t know that was my responsibility…I can’t handle this pressure.

        HANDLE IT! NOW NOW NOW NOW

    • The Flobbit

      I can’t begin to express how sick I am of the following statements:

      “It’s just a dumb fun action movie!”

      “Just turn your brain off and enjoy!”

      “For the nine year old boy in us all!”

      “Not expecting much, just a fun stupid movie!”

      What happened to the blockbusters that stimulated, terrified, provoked, moved, and enthralled you? Where are Raiders, Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, and Spider-Man 2?

      • MCP

        All those movies are out on Blu-Ray, go pick up some and don’t worry about Transformers…

      • peirce

        no, you dont understand….these movies are not good when will you stop being enticed by the trailers and realize that.

      • MJ

        Yea, it’s so hypocritical to seem some of the same people here who defended ASM2, and who liked Thor, criticizing the Transformers movies. Like those movies make sense and are made for Mensas?

        LOL

      • milo

        I’ve only seen the first Transformers movie. The two Thor movies are probably Marvel’s weakest but either is a thousand times better than Transformers. Seriously, it had a robot peeing on people.

      • MJ
      • Grendal Sven

        ASM2, and the 2 Thor’s were not the best, but at least watchable and mildly entertaining (to me at least.) But the last two Transformers were utterly brainless. The 1st one was pretty damn good though, and I’m hoping, probably foolishly, that this one is decent. I’m not gonna put my $10 down though until I read some reviews and get some fan reactions.

      • Grendal Sven

        The simple fact that LeBOOF isn’t going to be running around screaming like a girl gives me a smidgen of hope.

      • HerbalHobgoblin

        Stanley Tucci gets to do it now…

        “What happened to the blockbusters that stimulated, terrified, provoked, moved, and enthralled you? Where are Raiders, Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, and Spider-Man 2?”

        Those Blockbusters still exist: Winter Soldier, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, Pacific Rim (not that great but passable), Heck Prometheus even, Inception, Maybe Interstellar.

      • The Flobbit

        For every Winter Soldier or Smaug, we get a Transformers, Thor movie, Man of Steel, Ninja Turtles movie, or another crapfest with big things crashing into other big things.

      • Brandon Davis

        Transformers will always be viewed as crap but it has it’s audience. No one should be shamed out of enjoying a film no matter how bad you or I feel about it. Thor stumbled but it’s not get the fuck out of here irredeemably bad, we don’t know if Ninja Turtles will ultimately be bad and Man of Steel was not flat out stupid. regardless it doesn’t matter, if you don’t like it, don’t go to see it distance yourself from the film until you don’t even know when it’s being released in theaters. It’s very simple. Transformers and the lame blockbuster aren’t destroying the blockbuster; however I will say the general audience does need to invest more time and money in the better Blockbuster. Go see Godzilla pray it’s good, but every time I see people just outward freak out over Transformers I can’t help but say you’re putting too much energy in hating something in hating it.

      • Grendal Sven

        When it comes down to it, people are just going to like what they want to like, don’t try to wrap your brain around it, or apply any kind of logic to it or eventually you will drive yourself mad and end up hanging naked from a ceiling fan with a one word note in your hand that simply says… “Why?”

      • The Flobbit

        I assume you speak from experience?

      • Grendal Sven

        Yup, I gave up on wondering at the silliness of others, everything from good people loving bad movies, to gun-loving facebook posters who think Obama wants to know what they are telling their spouse to pick up at the grocery store for dinner, people may be wrong, but hell, it’s a free country, they have the right to be wrong if they want to.

    • MJ

      Hmm. His last summer movie was like 4 years ago, dude. Kind of hard to ruin summer movies when your last one was nearly half a decade ago. LOL

  • jay

    its not a cigar. its a bullet.

    • Armond White is my master now

      Yeah, now it makes sense…

      *IRONIC MODE OFF*

    • http://collider.com Matt Goldberg

      No, it’s a cigar. Full-size the video and set it to HD if you don’t believe me.

      • eternalozzie

        “sometimes a cigar is just a cigar …”

        it looks like a cigar when it lights up but if you look at the image above, its a bullet.

      • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

        Or maybe it is a huge shell he caught on the fly with his beaver’s teeth ?

      • http://collider.com Matt Goldberg

        Why are you people trying to take away the robot-cigar! Why must you crush everything beautiful in this robot-cigarless world in which we live?

      • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

        ;D

      • Grendal Sven

        The idea of a robot cigar, so horrid, so repugnant, so vile, we must self induce a form of mass hypnosis, a kind of defense against it, repeat to yourself as you hum a mantra, “there is no cigar, there is no cigar…”

      • MJ

        Where is Monica Lewinsky when we need her — she could tell us for sure if that was a cigar or not?

      • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

        ;D Poor Monica.

      • The Flobbit

        I did not have a robot cigar with that woman.

  • Finally a hot Transformer

    So over Bumbletwink

  • Anon

    Needs more Linkin Park.

  • YodaRocks

    Someone wanted to create a “Optimus Prime riding a Dinosaur Cool” meme, but I don’t think it works.

  • PresidentObama

    This will probably mark the extinction of the Transformer franchise (until they reboot it.)

    • The Flobbit

      Actually it will mark a massive 1.4 billion-dollar pay day for Bay, Marky Mark and the rest, greenlight 3 sequels and be loved by little boys and idiots the world over. Bay will continue to direct films so hopelessly abysmal people will want to watch them.

  • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

    Based on that banner image at the top, it’s as if Bay is daring us to hate his Transformers movies even more.

  • DEADP00L

    hahahahaaa!!! The music beat cracked me up I thought I was watching a Tarzan clip! Oh this awful.

  • DEADP00L

    Oh god make it stop! It’s soooo cringe worthy!!!

    • The Flobbit

      It’s so eye-burning, ear-breaking, brain-melting, moronic, painful, idiotic, juvenile, shoot-yourself-in-the-head bad. I think I summarized everyone with a brain’s feelings after they saw a Bay blockbuster.

  • JBug

    So sad it’s not Linkin Park. That music was perfect every time.

    • Ankh

      Never heard of the band. Linkin Park soundalikes?

  • DEADP00L

    These guys take themselves waaaay too seriously. They make the Power Rangers theme song sound hardcore.

    • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

      The Power Rangers theme doesn’t need help being hardcore. It has 5 words total and it just repeats them, few theme songs show such a blatant disregard for societal norms and expectations for what a theme song should be. It’s all about defiance and at the same time it’s a call to arms…if you happen to be a mighty morphin power ranger. That’s pure hardcore right there.

      • DEADP00L

        Yeah instrumental wise it can be pretty awesome but these guys aren’t even int the same league. They are so bad…

      • kins

        And guess what guys… We’ll get a Power Rangers movie in soon. Which from what ive read here and there will get the Transformers treatment.

  • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

    If this is a cigar, is it made of tobacco or tar ?

    Michael Bay has transformed Transformers into a joke.

    • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

      I see what you did there.

  • Cpt Rex Kramer

    That was just…… bad.

  • Ron Allen

    Sofa King We Tall Did.

  • Grayden

    I just need a sound byte of Optimus shouting “Hi ho, Silver….away!”, to go with that poster. I smell a kickstarter campaign.

  • livefree

    Optimus riding a dinosaur???
    What the f**k

  • AMP2020

    What a turd this is going to be

  • Pk

    Ugh hope that transformer dies a painful death….

  • Explodin’Grandmas

    Quit hating, you crybabies. It’s just a movie. Looks fun as fuck

  • mattinacan

    it’s hard not to just sit and laugh at all the awfulness on display in this footage

    • MCP

      Yeah I know right! What a bunch of crazy comment’s on the board for this article!

  • MJ

    Why can’t Bay make more serious movies like Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy?

  • leonard

    if any of you are confused by the dinosaur, then you must not have watched the original 80s cartoon or read any of the Transformers comic books (or even watched the 80s animated movie). the t-rex is obviously Grimlock, an iconic Dinobot from the 80s.

    Yes, I agree Bay really sucks, but I’ll still see this movie, especially because I loved the Dinobots (and thought they should’ve been introduced in the last movie).

    Who are these Imagine Dragon wannabees?

  • Grendal Sven

    I am really hoping that Bay can recapture some of the magic of the 1st film and minimize the flaws of the abominable 2nd, and only slightly tolerable 3rd.

    • DEADP00L

      You ask too much of him.
