I wonder what the overall sentiment was when people began finding out that director Michael Bay was returning to the fray with a brand new Transformers trilogy. Although, I’m pretty certain that whatever optimism that came about was met with the usual curmudgeons who will never stop looking for things to complain about, but judging by the tone we’re getting from the latest trailers we’re seeing for the newest trilogy installment with Transformers: Age Of Extinction, things are looking quite nice.
The characters are less goofy, more mature, and we’re seeing more depth from our principle CGI lead robot character, Optimus Prime (voiced once again by Peter Cullen), hinting at a story that definitely ante’s up the danger level in what appears to be an exciting and explosive newer, fresher start.
Plus, epic robot battles. Just sayin.
So I think it’s fair to say that however which way you feel about Bay as a director, you’ll probably see this one too. I know I might. At any rate, the film premieres in Hong Kong with a special live performance by the film’s soundtrack band, Imagine Dragons, one week before the film opens in the U.S. on June 27., followed by further multi-territorial releases on July 10 in the U.K. and abroad.
