There will be a new trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction arriving at 12am Pacific time on May 15th this week, and in anticipation of seeing even more of Michael Bay's last cinematic outing with the transforming robots, a new poster has arrived along with some new photos. The poster features Optimus Prime riding Grimlock, which we've seen in the trailer for the franchise sequel and pseudo-reboot. Meanwhile, the new photos seem to be unused concepts for posters (notice the space for title text and credits) that show off some of the new weapons that Optimus and Bumblebee are equipped with this time.
Here's the new poster for Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction from IMP Awards:
And here's the new photos of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee from Empire:
Michael Bay is again directing Transformers 4, or Transformers: Age of Extinction, from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger, 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 this time around includes Mark Wahlberg, T.J. Miller, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing. Transformers: Age of Extinction hits June 27th this summer.
