Transformers: Age of Extinction is living in a post-Transformers world, where aggressive bots are swiftly dispatched by a confidently dominant world military, where Shia LaBeouf sits quietly with a bag over his head, and where a farmer’s hobby of fixing up beater cars means he can stumble across the best Transformer ever.
Doesn’t this actually sound surprisingly cool? It does! A post-Transformers world is one full of weird sci-fi possibilities and this trailer for the fourth movie does a great job setting that up.
Unfortunately, it’s still a Michael Bay movie, so you know none of those ideas will be explored. So frustrating! But at least there are dinosaurs now.
