Haven’t we all waited long enough for Transformers: Age Of Extinction? The fourth installment of the Transformers series executively produced by Steven Spielberg, screen played by Ehren Kruger and directed by Michael Bay is a $165 million project distributed by Paramount pictures. It is to be released on the 25th of June this year and on June 27 on IMAX and 3D. We expect so much – even more after the three previous instalments -- from the ever high-budgeted films of the Transformers movie franchise since this is the first one to feature a whole new cast and another specie of robots, the Dinobots. In the film, we will witness the return of the famous Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ratchet, and Brains.
Transformers: Age Of Extinction is a science fiction action film featuring Mark Wahlberg as the lead man, and Nicola Peltz as his daughter in the movie as it takes place four years after the Chicago invasion shown in its predecessor, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon. Years after Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, a mechanic who goes by the name of Cade Yeager and his daughter, Tessa Yeager discover the deactivated remains of Optimus Prime. On the antagonist’s side, a powerful businessman and his chosen group of scientists study the previous Transformers in an attempt to push the limits of modernity and technology to create something beyond their control.
There have been rumors going around about a fifth installment of the Transformers movie franchise that is currently being developed and set to be released in three years’ time, and to top it all off, a sixth one on its way. It was Rob Moore of Paramount Pictures who offered a hint about the said projects but also stated that as of now, nothing has been set on stone yet.
Transformers is a series of American films based on the toys created by Hasbro and Tomy. The first film was released in 2007 (Transformers), followed by the second one in 2009 (Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen), and as the third one came in the year 2011 (Transformers: Dark Of The Moon), Michael Bay confirmed the latter to be the last instalment of the movie franchise. Looks like Hasbro’s CEO Brian Goldner effectively persuaded the production team to develop further films.
Despite the weighty critics on the previous films’ thin plots, crude humor, undeveloped characters and the films’ air time, the franchise has remained elevated by the endless receiving of praises on its visuals and action sequences. It is currently the occupant of the 12th spot in the highest-grossing film series category and the 4th among all the highest-grossing when averaged to gross per film next to the Lord Of The Rings, The Harry Potter Series, and Pirates Of The Caribbean.
