Everyone thought it was done. That Paramount had completed their run of Transformers films, and Michael Bay had brought his alien robot trilogy to a fully rounded conclusion. Now that it was over, Hollywood’s premier director of all things that explode in proximity to attractive women by the light of a sunset could turn his attention to other more deserving projects… but these thoughts were clearly premature. Bay went back to Hasbro’s robots in disguise, and it won’t be long before we see the fruits of his labours.
The trailer for the new film has landed, and looks to be actually pretty standard for a Transformers flick. Robots changing, explosions, shadowy government types and military exchanges of fire. Did I mention there are also dinosaurs? Cause there are, and it’s honestly the one bit of the trailer that actually makes it stand out. The final shot certainly does count as really quite badass. Well played, Transformers 4. Well played.
