Transformers: Age of Extinction new TV spot trailer – “The Rules Have Changed”

There’s a new Transformers: Age of Extinction trailer hitting the TV waves and of course I didn’t see or know about it cause, well I don’t watch much TV anymore.  Yeah, I know… I need too.

The new trailer is pretty nice, plenty of new action scenes, more Michael Bay carnage and destruction and of course more OPTIMUS PRIME!

Transformers: Age of Extinction rolls into theaters on June 27th, 2014. I already took off from work and got my ticket…. do you?

    Sorry to disagree with you yet again, but I’ll probably wait for the reviews myself. The first three movies just dragged my confidence so far through the slag pits that I’ve lost the will to believe. Grimlock finally shows up in one of these movies, and I can’t even care.

    My moping aside, this movie certainly has its work cut out for it. Every major Decepticon is dead, so who the Hell’s left to fight the Autobots? Bludgeon? Ratbat? A vengeful Shia LeBeauf? Knowing these movies, it’ll be the US Military and that way, we’ll get a Transformers movie where the story AND fight scenes focus only on humans…oh wait, so did the first three.

    Again, sorry to be such a pissant-naysayer. I hope you enjoy the movie. Lemme know how it is, will you?

      If we’re talking about the previous 3 movies the only one I really cared for was the first and some of the second. I did not not like “Dark of the Moon” at all. I do agree about the human factor but let’s face it, most people would like not even see the movie if it was just “Big robots fighting” and that’s part of the issue.

      As for this one it’s definitely better then the others as there’s no stupid assed Shia LeBeauf involved. AS for the “Bad Guys” well it’s partly human but mostly Lockdown. Actually it’s akin to a Transformers: Animated episode where the bounty hunter was hunting down the Autobots for their weapons and components. In fact that same bounty hunter was called Lockdown.

      I have hopes for the film and as long as there’s no human love interest BS then I’m set.

        Agreed. The first one is probably the only one you can go back and watch without feeling like you wasted your time and when I saw the second one, my first thought was actually “Well, at least the Decepticons finally got some dialogue.” “Dark of the Moon” is beyond awful though. Still, this trilogy turned out to be a much bumpier ride than any high-budget Transformers movie ever should have been.

        Humans are a nice addition to any TF story, but I think we can all agree that the Bayformers took it a little too far; I mean, we saw the US military blow more stuff up than the Decepticons and the only Autobot with a discernible personality was Optimus Prime. If they reduced the human cast a little bit and devoted some more time to the characters the movies are named after, we wouldn’t feel like it’s “big bots fight” so much as “characters who just happen to be big bots tell their interesting stories…and then fight.” Stories like “Beast Wars,” “War for Cybertron” and “Monstrosity” prove you can make a great TF story without any humans at all as long as the bots are full-fledged people in their own right. Why not combine good humans AND good bots?

        I liked Lockdown from “Transformers: Animated;” I had no idea he was going to be the villain in this film though. As cool as he is, this movie seems a little beyond even his scope. Sure, he’s got weapons and a ship, but he was mostly a one-on-one fight for Prowl. Maybe he has an army or something with him this time around.

        Unfortunately, the blonde lady saying “I’m not leaving without my father” makes me feel like she was talking to Marc Walberg and that when Marc Walberg risks his life to help her save her father, they’ll probably wind up romantically-linked. It’s a long shot to go off of on so little dialogue but hey, Michael Bay has to do SOMETHING with all the time he focuses on the humans, right?

        I actually enjoyed Shia LeBeauf in the first movie. His schtick got a little old the second time around though and a Cinema Snob/Spoony video I watched recently reminded me that his character seems to get less quirky over time and more angry and abusive towards his friends. They really should have toned down his quirkiness once he stopped being a teen and made him act a little older and wiser.
