So, apparently, there are going to be robots in the new Transformers movie. Robots flying, robots punching, robots sword-fighting, robots tossing giant ships, and, of course, robots riding other fire-breathing dinosaur robots.
This exclusive new preview of this summer’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, packs about as much ‘bot-on-‘bot violence as you could possibly fit into 60 seconds. And it proves that Autobot auteur Michael Bay — who’s directed every Transformers film to date — is still finding new ways to ratchet up the heavy-metal mayhem: In one scene, a seven-figure Pagani Huayra sports car transforms by basically disintegrating and reassembling itself mid-attack.
Optimus Prime, the leader of the Autobots, is back, voiced once again by Peter Cullen, who has provided the voice for the character for 30 years. Prime gets to have a heart-to-heart (or is that engine-to-heart?) moment with Mark Wahlberg, who takes the lead as the human in the fourth film. But there’s only so much time for talk, especially when this new preview provides the first look at two new Dinobots: Slug (the triceratops) and Scorn (a very pointy spinosaurus), each with an Autobot riding on their backs. And it all ends with a shot of Optimus leading the charge atop the fire-breathing Grimlock.
Transformers: Age of Extinction rolls out into theaters June 27.
