Recently it was announced that the next film in the Transformers franchise would be called Transformers: Age of Extinction. It is set in the same universe as the previous Transformers films, but features a new human cast.
Michael Bay has taken to Twitter to give fans the behind the scenes treatment for his new film. Bay recently tweeted a new image from Transformers 4, featuring newcomers to the franchise Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Pelt (Bates Motel) and Jack Reynor (Dollhouse), who play Flynn Vincent (a gear-head inventor), his teenage daughter and her hot-rodding boyfriend, respectively.
The picture shows Wahlberg and his two young co-stars standing in front of what appears to be an abandoned gas station. Most of the film was shot in various locations in Texas, and it appears that this is one of the many scenes filmed in the Lone Star State. Is the positioning and body language of the actors meant to hint at what their personalities and relationships could be in the film? Take a look and decide for yourself:

With fresh new faces to the series, the addition of great actors such as Stanley Tucci and Kelsey Grammer, and the likely inclusion of the Dinobots, Transformers 4 could be just what the series needs to distinguish itself from the other two sequels, Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon.
Bay has said that this film will be a semi-reboot of the series, and the rumored storyline for the film is pretty epic in nature (if it turns out to be true). With so much fresh potential on their hands, hopefully Wahlberg, Bay and Co. can recapture some of magic that the first Transformers had.
Transformers: Age of Extinction will be released on June 27, 2014. We’ll keep you updated with more photos and footage when it becomes available.
