New Transformers: Age of Extinction Trailer

06Mar14

So the new trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction trailer just came out the other day.

Based on the trailer I’m guessing the plot is following Dark of the Moon all Transformers including the Autobots are either in exile and the government is hunting them down. Marky Mark, who apparently owns salvage yard buys a rusted out old semi truck which turns out to be a deactivated Optimus Prime. The government finds out about it and explosions happen.

From what I’ve seen in the trailer and heard on the internet it looks like Bumblebee is returning as well, this time as a different Camaro with a different paint scheme. Also the Transformer with the nose/dick/gun thing on its face is supposed Galvatron or at least that’s the theory.  It’s already confirmed that Grimlock will be in it since the Superbowl trailer ended with Optimus riding him like a horse, also this trailer ends with Optimus delivering an epic pimp slap to him. From what wikipedia says that two-headed dragon thing is supposed to be the Dinobot, Swoop or some equivalent and not the Terrorcon leader, Hun-Garr like I thought he was.

All in all I think I’ll go see it. I liked Transformers as a kid and I am easily entertained with explosions. However I am a little annoyed that Michael Bay is choosing to throw continuity out the window and just further piss on the cartoon’s established mythos. I mean Optimus Prime is a different model truck now, Bumblee looks like he reformatted himself back into an older model Camaro, and whatever happened to Sideswipe and all the Wreckers and all the other surviving Autobots. I’m not complaining that he didn’t bring back the Jar Jar Bink Chevy twins, but still he keeps bringing in new Transformers and tossing out old ones. You think it would be smart to just keep adding Transformers so he can expand the toyline more. Another thing that pisses me off is Swoop is supposed fucking pteradactyl not a two-headed dragon. Two-headed fucking dragons aren’t dinosaurs!

Anyway I had an idea for a movie which would have been really close to the old ’80s cartoon movie plot and mythos and would have introduced Unicron, Metroplex, Trypticon and a bunch of other old-school Transformers that could have been turned into toys. Maybe I’ll post the premise tomorrow. Until then enjoy the new trailer.
