In new posters...
Here are some new images from Hasbro for Transformers: Age of Extinction, revealing the roster of Transformers. Michael Bay told EW that the fill will, as previously reported, kick off a new trilogy.
"We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one," said Bay. "…It's the first of a new trilogy. I'm not necessarily sure that I'm doing [the others], but that's what it's meant for."
He also spoke specifically about the character of Lockdown, saying, "Lockdown is an interesting character. He travels the galaxy, he works for somebody else. And he's here for one person, one alien, and then he's out of here," Bay says. "So he doesn't really want to take sides. The cause and balance of the galaxy is kind of messed up when different species play with different species. And that opens up a whole other gigantic world for Transformers… Lockdown's ship has a lot of meaning that can go into other movies. There's a lot of backstory about that ship that's not laid out here. You're going to see a few things where you're like ‘What is that? And what is that?' And you're going to see a couple shots like, ‘Wait a minute, who are they?' But we don't answer those questions."
The film opens on June 27th and stars Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng and Titus Welliver.
