New ‘Transformers 4′ Clip, Featurette & TV Spots: The Total Preview

Published 10 months ago by


As Transformers: Age of Extinction enters the final seven-day stretch to its theatrical premiere, so do we all enter Paramount’s final marketing blitz to promote it. We gathered up the latest salvo of marketing media to share with you in one place, and they include the following:

  1. A new Transformers 4 clip featuring Mark Wahlberg’s Cade Yeager addressing his daughter Tessa’s (Nicola Peltz) dress code – which has admittedly been a talking point amongst fans.
  2. A new Transformers 4 featurette, highlighting the film’s official theme song, “Battle Cry”, by Imagine Dragons.
  3. A trio of new Transformers 4 TV Spots, offering brief glimpses of more robot-on-robot-on-dinobot action.

Transformers 4 Not a Kids Movie New Transformers 4 Clip, Featurette & TV Spots: The Total Preview

As you see in the clip above, rational-minded fans aren’t the only ones wondering why a teenage girl would walk around her rural home in Daisy Duke shorts and heels that make her walk like a baby deer; her father has some concerns about it, too. As seen here, Wahlberg seems to be bringing some energy to his role; however, Peltz (Bates Motel) and Miller (Silicon Valley) come off a bit more lackluster in their efforts. But hey, it’s only a clip – the full film could showcase much better performances.

Theme Song: “Battle Cry”

If you’ve been watching Transformers 4 trailers and TV spots, and have that song that plays over them stuck in your head, then this Imagine Dragons featurette is not going to help you:

Linkin Park famously held down the first Transformers trilogy, with theme songs like “What I’ve Done” in Transformers, “New Divide” in Transformers 2 and “Iridescent” for Transformers 3. However, Transformers: Age of Extinction is the start of a brand-new trilogy of story, with many new human and robot characters. That new start requires a new sound, and Imagine Dragons is certainly a pop-culture band for these days and  times. Check out the full version of “Battle Cry”:


Finally, here are the new TV spots for Age of Extinction; however, the marketing for this movie has admittedly been surprisingly reserved – so if you want to remain fresh for this last week until release, stop watching now:

  1. Is it just me or are they a little old to be teenagers going to prom. About 10 years too old.

    • Only the blonde is supposed to go to prom from what I understood of it anyway… she does look lots older too.. maybe she flunk alot. the Bearded guy is one of her father’s friends. :))

    • She’s 19 years old bro

    • Nicola Peltz is 19 years old in real life.

  2. Wowza! I never bothered watching the all human trailers til now, and I have to agree that Mark is the only person with energy and personality in these scenes. I’m sure Kelsey and Stanley (OHH MYYY GYAAAAHD) will be fine with the material they’re given but it’s always a mood/pace killer when someone’s less than stellar acting makes them seem so uninteresting. It’s distracting, really.

    My brother and I were irritated at the stereotypes, misogyny and especially those two ghetto bots in part 2 and thankfully that was the only movie we put money into. I’m not pumped for this and if it gets less than 70% on tomatoes, I’m staying my butt home.

  3. Great! Another Transformers movie about humans!!

  4. That clip was hilarious.

    • me gusto el spot#20 es el mejor hata el momento se lo recomiento mucho a todos

  5. I find her performance pretty spot on, go talk to a typical teen girl and that’s close to the the personality they have in real life for that generation.

  6. Still not wowed by explosions and metal muscle and sinew robots. Give them more solid pieces, more recognizable designs, and drop Bey already. Delve into the characters more (and not the human ones). They kill off more characters in every movie and since they focus too much on the humans you don’t even feel bad that a robot died. It’s because there’s not enough time or focus on them (save for Optimus and bumblebee) to get attached to them. About the only thing that made me watch the first 3 (should’ve gave up after the 2nd one) was Peter Cullen’s voice for Optimus. Don’t think that alone will get me to see another Bey debacle.

  7. aunque quiero tener sexo con nicola belts XD no ya en serio si quiro XD

  8. great this music sounds like some teenage emo girl that cuts herself kinda garbage music!! They should have stuck with Linkin Park, those songs are and that band are great! Saw them in concert 2X and they killed it! but this band SUCKS!
