New information has emerged about “Transformers 4.” The new title, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” and the film’s release date were announced via a new poster that features the familiar Transformers logo with the number four embedded with a Decepticon insignia in something like a sandy dessert. The artwork suggests the desert backdrop or perhaps some post-apocalyptic wasteland?
“Transformers 4“ will feature a completely new cast along with a new set of robotic characters called Dinobots – hence “Age Of Extinction” subtitle. In and interview with Beijing News, Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura confirmed this saying, “I can not disclose the specifics, but you can be sure that the joining of the Dinobots will give the audience new excitement,” The Dinobots are Autobots, and the Dino gang includes Grimlock, who’s a T-Rex, Slag, a Triceratops, Sludge, an Apatosaurus, Snarl, a Stegosaurus, and Swoop, a pterodactyl.
As for the new actors, Director Michael Bay describes them as an essential part of this new movie.
“This movie takes place exactly 4 years after the war in Chicago. The story makes a very natural transition, and reason as to why we have a whole new cast,” Bay wrote on his website. “This Transformers will feel very different than the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy.”
“Transformers 4“ will star Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz as the female lead, and Mark Wahlberg as her character’s father. The new movie has been filming this summer in Detroit, Chicago and China.
“Transformers:Age of Extinction“ is scheduled for release in theaters and IMAX on June 27, 2014.
