Transformers Age of Extinction Pre-release thread

I looked for other thhreads, and one thread was entitle "superbowl spot"

But I opened up a new thread, because now we have new posters, and a new trailer.



Good to see Prime will have cab-over alt mode for a bit!

But it looks like Walberg's daughter gets beat up and captured a lot in this film, but she sure knows how to cry "dad!"

Re: Transformers Age of Extinction Pre-release thread

Guess it's kind of fitting that the people in this world regard the Transformers as nothing but a bunch of annoying pests who cause nothing but destruction and won't go away. Since that's pretty much what the Transformers films themselves have become by this point.

I was a huge fan of the first movie, but by now any sense of wonder or magic in the concept has just been completely lost.

Don't hate the Transformers. Hate Michael Bay.

Oh my god, why does he need to shoehorn so many American flags into his films?

I'm Canadian and that's the first thing I notice in most of Bay's film trailer. But for YOU guys to notice it...

In other news, admittedly my first thoughts upon seeing this trailer was "Whoa, this movie will have a PLOT..?!"

Michael Bay has this huge love for America and the military

All the other countries in his movies are full of cliche people and can't stand up to 'Merica

On the surface, a cool, glossy trailer..but I don't have any desire to see it.

Re: Transformers Age of Extinction Pre-release thread

"The rules have changed" ... but ... the actual movies haven't.

It'll be the same kind of spectacle as all the other live-action TF films. I'll likely see it, though not in the theater. And if the other films are any indication, I'll enjoy it as a purely guilty, mind-numbing pleasure.

I could do without all of the flags - explicit and implicit - though.

Re: Transformers Age of Extinction Pre-release thread

So, the purpose of this pre-release thread is to diss both Michael Bay and America?

I'm an American, I like Michael Bay's work, and I will gladly plant my butt in a theater seat to see this movie. You anti-American Bay-haters can stay home.
