[Movies] Michael Bay Promises No ‘Goofiness’ in Transformers: Age of Extinction
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.04.2013

Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, Transformers: Age of Extinction director Michael Bay promised that the latest sequel in the franchise would have a more serious tone.

While the films in the franchise have all been very financially successful, they've also been highly criticized for their oddly placed comedic and goofy moments. But now Bay says, "I wanted the first [three] Transformers to be very suburban and less cool. 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 the last one]."

The film won't be completely "grim ‘n gritty" because Mark Wahlberg's character is said to be a "wacky inventor" disappointed by his daughter dating a race car driver.

Bay added on what brought him back to the franchise, "It was the Transformers ride [at Universal Studios]. It was seeing this two-and-a-half hour line, with all these kids lined up."

Just to note, Bay had made similar proclamations before regarding the last Transformers sequel, Dark of the Moon. Bay previously told USA Today on the movie, "One thing we're getting rid of is what I call the dorky comedy." That didn't really turn out to be the case with the final product.

The film will hit theaters on June 27, 2014.
