This is going to be one hell of a summer for geeks, especially considering we’ve got Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Godzilla coming up. In fact, Mark Wahlberg is so excited to be part of Transformers, he’s already proclaimed it will be “the biggest movie of 2014.”
They’re both big, but you know there isn’t going to be a tie when Godzilla and Transformers go toe to toe. Or has there already been a tie? One movie with giant creatures has to be the top dog this summer, but the question is, will it be the big G or the big T?
No, Michael Bay isn’t trying to launch Optimus Prime on Broadway. Even if something like that was done as a parody, the guy’s not known for his sense of irony. Trans4rmers is the latest musical parody that’s become an underground phenomenon, much like the Point Break musical parody that hit L.A. several years ago.
There’s a new Transformers coming to town this summer, Age of Extinction, but anyone who’s a fan of the series should know what to expect, especially with Michael Bay directing. But will the next installment be a darker one that’s not exactly for kids?
We just reported here on TGD that the first commercial for Transformers: Age of Extinction would debut during the Superbowl, which is always a prime time for the major studios to buy ad space for their upcoming blockbusters. In fact, according to polls, Extinction was the most anticipated movie commercial for the Bowl broadcast.
It’s been hard to tell what the next Transformers movie is going to be because there’s been a lot of confusing mis-information out there about it. Is it a reboot? A continuation of the last one? A movie that takes place in the universe with a whole new cast? At least the one thing we do know is that the Dinobots are in this one.
Now that 2014 is almost here, it means the next Transformers film is closer to release. The fan boys can rant all they want about Michael Bay, but you’ll know they’ll come out in droves on June 27 when Transformers Age of Extinction is out in theaters.
The Transformers movies have a huge following and make a ton of money world-wide, but certainly nobody confuses them for high art. In fact, despite all his success, Michael Bay is one of the most critically reviled directors in Hollywood.
