Transformers: Age Of Extinction Debuts A Brand New TV Spot
Michael Bay is having a pretty good night. Not only did a new TV spot for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (a film he is executive producing) debut this evening during the MTV Movie Awards, but we also have a new preview of his next installment in the Transformers franchise, Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Unlike many of the other clips and TV spots that have aired tonight, sadly, this TV spot isn't really filled with any footage that we haven't seen before. We once again see Marky Mark discovering that he has bought a crappy Transformer, Optimus Prime getting blasted by Lockdown (who I just like to call "Ol' Gun Face," and Optimus laying the smackdown on Grimlock. Basically, it's 30-seconds of action-packed footage that has been culled down from the previously released marketing material:
Based on a script by Ehren Kruger, who also had a hand in writing both Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon, moves away from the story of Sam Witwicky and instead introduces a new family, the Yeagers. Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), is an auto mechanic and single father of a daughter, Tessa (Nicola Peltz), and due to his general irresponsibility he regularly finds himself and the people he loves in trouble. This gets taken to a new level, however, when Cade purchases what he believes to be a junker truck that turns out to be an alien machine. This action earns him the attention of not just the United States government, but also both the Autobots and Decepticons. The film's supporting cast includes Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Jack Raynor, Nicola Peltz, T.J. Miller, Bingbing Li and Titus Welliver.
While the first Transformers movie got a fairly lukewarm response from critics when it came out in 2007, the most recent chapters have been pretty much disasters in that area. That said, Michael Bay is coming off one of the better film's of his career in Pain & Gain, so maybe he'll be able to transfer some of that passionate energy into his movie about giant robots in disguise.
