Michael Bay promises no "goofiness" in Transformers: Age of Extinction
Friday, 29 November 2013
"I wanted the first Transformers to be very suburban and less cool," Bay tells Yahoo! Movies. "This is a much more cinematic one. I focused on keeping this one slick. There won’t be any goofiness in this one. We went a bit too goofy [on Transformers: Dark of the Moon]."
So, anyone believe him?
Bay then went on to confirm once again that despite shaking things up, Age of Extinction firmly takes place in the established continuity of the movie franchise: "It feels like a new chapter, this movie. But it’s not a reboot. This movie lives in the history of the Transformers movies, and this one starts three years after the last. It feels fresh."
Transformers: Age of Extinction is set for release on June 27th 2014 with a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Raynor (What Richard Did) and Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Kelsey Grammer (The Expendables 3), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Bingbing Li (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J. Miller (She's Out of My League).
