|Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) Teaser Poster|
According to /Film the title is a reference to the appearance of the fan favorite Dinobots. The Dinobots, unlike the other machines, transform into robot dinosaurs. It was established in the first Transformer movie that the robots take on the appearance of the dominant life-form, so we can assume they landed on Earth during the age of dinosaurs.
When I was a kid we had a few of these. They are the absolute coolest toys in the entire Transformers toy line.
While it hasn't been officially confirmed they'll appear, in an interview with Tformers.com, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura said, "I can not disclose the specifics, but you can be sure that the arrival of the Dinobots will give the audience a lot to be excited about. The world's coolest, most exciting cars will appear in the film, including Chinese vehicles, so whether you are a car enthusiast or not, it will be a feast for the eyes."
The Dinobot team is made up of team lead Grimlock (Tyrannosaurus Rex), Slag (Triceratops), Sludge (Apatosaurus), Snarl (Stegosaurus), Swoop (Pteranodon) and Paddles (Elasmosaurus).
Michael Bay also released an unexplained teaser photo on his site for the film with the caption: "Pictured left to right: Jack Reynor; Mark Wahlberg; 2nd Assistant B-Camera Casey “Walrus” Howard; 1st Assistant B-Camera John Kairis with back to camera; B-camera Operator Lukasz Bielan; Director Michael Bay; and Director of Photography Amir Mokri."
The Transformers movies are the fourth highest-grossing film (gross per film average) behind the The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Pirates of the Caribbean film series. So we can be sure we'll be getting a lot more of them in the coming years.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is a sequel to Transformers: Dark of the Moon and will take place four years after the invasion of Chicago. Mark Wahlberg takes over the lead role from Shia LaBeouf and plays Cade "as a single father and struggling inventor."
The movie is due for release in the US on the 27 June 2014. While we're not a Transformer movie blog, my love for the show means we'll be covering a lot more in the coming months.
What do you think of the new title for Transformers 4?
