The Super Bowl played host to many exciting new TV spots for a host of upcoming blockbusters. And while there were new teasers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (plus an all new full trailer), the Super Bowl was the first time audiences got a taste of the fourth instalment of the Transformers movie series.
The new film, titled Transformers: Age of Extinction, is set for release June 26th and will see Michael Bay return to direct once more. Gone are Shia LaBeouf and the majority of the previous cast, replaced by the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, Nicola Peltz and Jack Raynor. However, what most fans of the series is expecting, is the debut of the cartoon series most noted characters, the Dinobots. Just how dinosaurs fit into the puzzle that is robots from a distant planet? Well, if Michael Bay’s history is anything to go by, we’ll most likely get a little bit canonical accuracy mixed in with a dose of originality and Bayhem. Much speculation and teaser dissection has already taken place over at the official Michael Bay forums, with keen eyes and observers noting down the potential characters and possibilities the teaser holds.
What we do know of course is that the most important of all Dinobots, Grimlock, will finally make his big screen debut.
Michael Bay doesn’t disappoint with the first teaser, giving us a glimpse of the prehistoric machines alongside a still that features Optimus Prime riding Grimlock.
Giant transforming robots doing battle atop giant transforming dinosaurs? What’s not to like?
We impatiently await the first full length trailer to flesh out the 30 or so seconds we’re given here. Hopefully much sooner than later.
