Transformers: Age of Extinction

So here's a teaser for the 4th installment of Transformers. I'm not really too keen on the chrome look for the Dinobots and why does Optimus Prime have a sword?

I wonder if that bird is Sky Lynx? I wonder if there'll be Unicorn...oops Unicron in this?


However I still admire ILM's work though.

Robot domestication...by other robots. How cute...

I believe the bird thing to be Swoop or some other Bayverse version of a Dinobot.

It's always weird how deep they dig into Transformers canon and then end up with still totally bizarro versions of everything.

Waiting for Wreck-gar and the sharkticons to show up.

Aside from a few guns it almost feels like some weird fantasy movie starring robots at this point. So many of them look like dragons, Optimus has a sword, etc.

Is that optimus prime with a sword or is it power rangers?

Optimus had swords in the first movie already. Two of them, in fact, and used them to decapitate another robot.
Also, it's not like that many of them were actually shot dead with guns in any of the movies... It seems to be more effective to cut each other to pieces.

Besides, the original toy came with an axe. Many other toys had close combat weapons too.

Yep, I was about to say. It's a well known feature of the character.

I always counted those as some kind of arm blade things or energy axe, he never had a full on sword and shield really, especially riding a t-rex that looks like a dragon.

Anyway smashing slicing and punching combat is always more fun with these guys though for sure.

Mark Wahlberg > Shia Labeouf

Dinobots > No Dinobots

I'm cautiously excited.

Not quite accurate:

I heard this movie was made in China for the Chinese, was very relevance to that?

There was some filming in China, perhaps they got some Chinese funding, or a distribution deal there. It's probably a similar case to Iron Man 3 though I don't know if China is getting a different cut or not.

More transformery than any other transformation of a transformed transformerific transformated transfomiction!

What happened to the transformer kid? They could keep going until he is the transformer grandpa. All jokes aside you think 'oh not another one' but they will probably do another excellent job on this one, and that is no laughing matter.

Dammit Bay. I swore I would stop watching Transformers after the second one. And then the third. HOW DO YOU KEEP DOING THIS TO ME???

Plus - Dinobots..and they DO look as ridiculously awesome as I imagined.

I just watched it again and saw OPTIMUS PRIME IS RIDING A FREAKING ROBOT DINOSAUR WITH A SWORD.
I swear I wish I could show this to 13 year old Chris. I think his head would explode.

I like how they have almost gone 'lighter' in tone with this film. I originally heard that they were going all Batman Begins on it (dark, serious, 'realistic'), but it seems like they are really embracing the complete insanity of the situation.

It worked well in The Avengers (not taking itself too seriously), but The Avengers had an incredible leading man (Sorry - it wasn't ensemble...it was Tony Starks The Avengers).

But I still miss Megan Fox. Like her or hate her, she was the best part of the first 2 films.
