2. Transformers: Age of Extinction
What? Just when you thought the infamous franchise was put to rest, Hollywood executives had other plans. Though the story follows “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, it is essentially a reboot of the franchise. The story takes place four years after the previous film, and sees a mechanic and his daughter find a deactivated Optimus Prime. Transformers have not been seen or heard from in those four years, but some businessmen and scientists are taking no precautions. They want to use past knowledge of Transformers to push technology to new heights. Any guess on whether they go too far?
Who? Michael Bay is back as director. Ehren Kruger is back as writer. However, the cast is all new. Mark Wahlberg leads the new star stable, and also along for the ride are Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Nicola Peltz, and comedian TJ Miller. The voice cast for the bots (including DINOBOTS!!) see the likes of Peter Cullen, John Goodman, John DiMaggio, and Ken Watanabe.
When and Where? “Transformers: Age of Extinction” will roll out nationwide on June 27th.
