Transformers: Age of Extinction

Optimus got an upgrade. While we wait patiently for the first teaser trailer to hit, the newest Optimus Prime design has made its debut on the cover of Empire magazine. The British mag debuted their latest issue featuring a story on Michael Bay's latest sequel Transformers: Age of Extinction, which is filming now all over the world (Detroit! Hong Kong! Cybertron!). In addition to appearances by the main cast - Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor - looking gritty as usual, there's a new shot of Optimus Prime (still being voiced by Peter Cullen) with his big ass sword and some slight design tweaks. Take a look below.

Here's the Empire magazine cover for Transformers: Age of Extinction, showing the newest Optimus:

Michael Bay is directing Transformers 4 as his last film in the blockbuster series before handing the franchise off to another director. No plot details are known yet, but Bay says, "We start four years later and there’s a reason why we’re meeting a new cast. We keep the 'Transformers' the way they were. It’s just four years later. There’s a reason the Transformers are redesigned. We’re trying to broaden the franchise and give it more places to go." The new cast includes Mark Wahlberg, T.J. Miller, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles and Li Bingbing and the film arrives on June 27th, 2014.

      That's his look. Going all the way back, that is his go-to. Furrowed brows. Rippling muscles.
