Empire featured these 8 awesome ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Images. We received our first look of the ‘new’ Optimus Prime when Empire revealed the cover of their latest issue, and now we get our best glimpse yet of what to expect when Transformers: Age of Extinction premières on 27 June 2014.
This fourth film in the franchise is something of a fresh start, and sees an Earth scarred by the events of the last three films but moving on after the disappearance of all giant robots (although we’re guessing that everyone gives their car a suspicious look in the morning, lest it suddenly turn into a giant mechanoid). In particular, Shia LaBeouf and family have moved on and we have some new leads.
When Mark Wahlberg’s inventor, Cade Yeager, discovers a buried Transformer, the stage is set for the return of the giant beasties. There will also be some business with Cade’s daughter Tessa (Nicola Peltz); her secret racing driver boyfriend Shane; Stanley Tucci’s Joshua; his geologist assistant Darcy (Sophia Myles); “the CEO of the Chinese Transformers”, played by Li Bingbing; and Kelsey Grammer’s Harold Attinger, the film’s non-robot big bad.
“I’m feeling really good about this one. I love my cast,” Bay told us. “There’s a huge scale to this, but also huge soul.”
