‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ International Trailer & IMAX Poster

Published 11 months ago by , Updated June 16th, 2014 at 8:02 am,

In just two weeks, Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise will be back on the big screen with the first film in what is supposed to be a new trilogy – assuming it does well at the box office, of course. (And with nothing else releasing that weekend, it almost certainly will.)

In Transformers: Age of Extinction, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ratchet and more return to save a whole new group of humans: There’s mechanic Cade (Mark Wahlberg), his daughter, Tessa (Nicola Peltz), and her race car driver boyfriend Shane (Jack Reynor). Only this time, the Autobots don’t just have a few people to watch over. The whole planet is facing extinction from an ancient, powerful new menace that has set its sights on Earth.

The new Transformers: Age of Extinction international trailer focuses more on this worldly aspect of the film than any of the previous promos. Here we not only see scenes at Cade’s farmhouse in Texas, but also a number of fight sequences taking place in Hong Kong, China.

There are also new IMAX and international posters below that reinforce the epic feel from the trailer, one featuring Cade and Grimlock, leader of the Dinobots, standing alongside Optimus Prime, and the other depicting Optimus rising heroically from fire and ash.

While Stanley Tucci’s character Joshua represents one villain in the film and is clearly up to no good in this new international trailer, it’s not clear yet exactly who the Decpticon-aligned bounty hunter Lockdown is working for as he descends upon Earth.

One thing’s for certain, though – Optimus will need all the help he can get, including bonding with Grimlock and maybe even upgrading into his new form, Silver Knight, which has been teased across the web.

What do you think of the newest Age of Extinction trailer? Are you looking forward to Transformers 4? Let us know in the comments.

  1. is it just me or is China invading hollywood starting with Looper and Iron Man 3, along with many other movies.

    • Not really invading per se. Hollywood just knows where the $$ is going to come from.

    • More and more films are getting more money at china than USA
      Films like pacific Rim , Godzilla and Robocop wouldn’t make the budget back without china, so it’s just a smart investment to any Sci Film.

      • Except Godzilla did make it’s money back in the U.S alone.

        • Um no it didn’t. It cost 225 million with marketing and as of yesterday has only made 187 million. That’s about 42 million short.

    • Within hind-sight, Asians are the second fastest growing population in Hollywood US.

    • Well the American film industry has always been a propaganda machine and I think they need western civilians to see china as an ally in the upcoming war they started with Russia, they are also scared at rate in which china is gaining economic power and reducing poverty the latter the states seem incapable of. its very juvenile, I rarely comment but was just about to point out the same thing. its strange how the propaganda machine fail to see we are more aware these days. enough politics this does look awesome, I don’t expect shawshank but ive missed seeing giant robots fight!

    • money talks, but it’s also nice to see a disaster/action/scifi film that doesn’t think America is the centre of the world

  2. Holy Sh*t !! That top poster is awesome !
    I want one

  3. I don’t mind investment from China, but not at the expense of the story. The one in Iron Man 3 felt force. Thank goodness it was cut from the international version.

  4. I like how they’re showing Chinese actors as if they’re going to have more than a few minutes of screen time

  5. A transformers poster with Mark Walhberg, Optimus Prime & Grimlock?

  6. I do not care what anybody says, this movie looks AMAZING!

    • NO IT DOESN’T! IT LOOKS LIKE S***! >:-(

      • No, it really doesn’t. So, hush up and get over it.

  7. It seems the story is more mature now. Good call. No more awkward teenager jokes. I wonder if decepticon is going to kidnap Wahlberg’s kid…

    Robot design still looks like s***. They should scrap that metal skeleton-y vibe and add more color and more armor.

  8. Both photo links open photo #2.

    • Thanks for the heads up! It’s been fixed.

  9. That Chinese voice at the end of the trailer…. simply epic

  10. “While Stanley Tucci’s character Joshua represents one villain in the film and is clearly up to no good in this new international trailer, it’s not clear yet who the great alien menace descending upon Earth is.”

    Erm, WHAT? Yes it is, it’s Lockdown, a bounty hunter with a rough Decepticon alignment but separate to Megatron’s organisation. Where have you guys been????

    Stanley Tucci isn’t even a villain either, he’s an idiot businessman working for the wrong people. The bad guys are Harold Attinger (Kelsey Grammar) and Titus Welvier.

    This info has been around (from Paramount and Hasbro) for MONTHS. Honestly Screenrant this is bad.

    • @CarWrapKid – Obviously we DID know that was Lockdown in the trailers but Araceli was referring to WHO he is working for. Bounty hunters…well, hunt for bounties…so he’s obviously not attacking Optimus or the earth for his own pleasure.

      I’ve updated the article to better reflect that point.

  11. Got my tix. in my country, it premiers on the 25th, so i might make a non spoiler-ish feedback right after that here or the next update… going in with low expectations and have been keeping out from all the TV spots…let’s see if MB redeems himself…

  12. I fear this show will not be good at all. The barrage of advertising employed for “Age of Extinction” is reminiscent of one used for the 1998 Godzilla film starring Matthew Broderick.

    That movie sucked big time and the studio knew it. So they were trying to create hype to get people into the theatres. They figure if they can get a big weekend opening, that can counter any fallout from the bad word of mouth critiques that would spread after the initial audiences give their review.
