Mark Wahlberg promises the new Transformers is more than meets the eye

05.28.2014

Most fans are likely approaching TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION with cautious optimism. After being given three very similar movies from Michael Bay, the director has been promoting the latest film as a new beginning that plays by a whole different set of rules than it's predecessors. With each new TV spot and trailer, TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION looks like more of the same, only now with Dinobots and less Shia LaBeouf.

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION star Mark Wahlberg is, obviously, jumping to the defense of his new film and swears that it is not just a series of "money shots" made for trailers. Speaking with IGN, Wahlberg said the following:

I think a lot of times moviegoers are kind of tricked by trailers. They’ll see a cool moment and go, ‘Oh, I can’t wait to see that,’ but once they've seen it, they’ve seen the best bits of the movie,"

Granted, a trailer only runs for a couple of minutes and cannot show everything a movie may have in store, but we got the big Dinobot reveal, some massive action scenes, and a look at alien craft descending on a metropolitan area. What else happens in the movie we haven't seen a bit of yet?

"I think people are definitely going to get their money’s worth, it’s well worth the wait. And I think, for the die-hard fans, they’re going to have a whole new thing to kind of look forward to in the future."

Kudos to Wahlberg for defending his movie without giving too much away. I cannot say I entirely believe what he is saying, but I have rarely been disappointed by what he has put out. Even his most mediocre movies like SHOOTER, CONTRABAND, and 2 GUNS are still a lot of fun to watch. Plus PAIN & GAIN was an enjoyable movie and that was from Michael Bay. I hope that this turns out to be true and we finally get a TRANSFORMERS movie worth watching again and again.

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION opens in theaters on June 27, 2014.

The Bruck

You know I will see this like most people (Just not in theaters, and for free) but looks like Bay is stealing the Bruckheimer playbook in this one with the over the top nostalgic americana angle, the failing farmer, etc, etc. Oh its going to be a pure stereotypical cheesefest, but hell what do you expect from a movie solely made to sell toys to 8 year olds. Its just like any corporation as long as there is more money to be made they will keep doing what they do no matter the obstacles, or logic.

I don't care if this movie sucks, Dinobots are in it. If they could put the Constructicons in the next one, and have them become Devastator, I would be in heaven

The first 3 Transformers movies would have been amazing if they took out the corn.
Wahlberg says its good, and Bay says its different.
It's not out of the realm of possibility for the Director of The Rock to make a great action flick.

them: meh... i'm good.
me: well, there's no more Shia Lebeouf
them: oh?...
me: yeah, they are replacing him with mark wahlberg
them: so you don't say.... is there a trailer?

The thing that stuck out to me in the trailer was Stanley Tucci crying "oh my goooooooddddd". Which, for something which has been touted as un-silly, is about as silly as it gets. Still, Wahlberg as the lead is definitely an improvement over LaBeouf, and I'm guessing the 3D in this one will be great.

Mark Wahlberg will transform into his alter ego, Andy Samberg from that Mark Wahlberg Talks to Pet - "So Grimlock, you're a dinosaur. What's up with that?".

I'm looking forward to this for the sheer fact that Wahlberg is the lead and there will be no LaBeouf.

And I thought 2 Guns, and Shooter were two of his better films to date.

I've gotten my money's worth and then some from the past 3 movies, and really looking forward to the new one.

In Mark we trust

I don't think there has ever been a movie with Mark Walberg that I did not like. His casting alone is an improvement over Beefless...and kinda like the gripes with Gojira, less focus on the humans and more on the big guys, but when you do need those human moments make them count, I.e. the aforementioned Mr. Walberg and Bryan Cranston...

My problem with the Bay Transformers films has nothing to do with being shown money shots in trailers before seeing the movie. It has to do with the weird, perverse sense of humor that runs deep within the veins of the series. The oddball characters, the oddball dialogue. The focus on HUMAN characters INSTEAD of on the Transformers. The nonsensical plot lines (if a Decepticon army was hiding on the moon all this time, why wasn't it used until the THIRD movie), the repeating theme of the

The nonsensical plot lines (if a Decepticon army was hiding on the moon all this time, why wasn't it used until the THIRD movie), the repeating theme of the Transformers not being trusted by the Government despite how many times they've SAVED THE WORLD. I know most people hate Revenge of the Fallen, personally the first two are my favorite and I downright loathed Dark of the Moon, so I'm really hesitant to get back in the theater. And I've heard Bay make promises like this before only to completely forego them.

"Aim it at her tits, Eddie"

I hope Mark & John C. Reilly can promote this together, and when John talks about how good it is, Mark can say "Hello? Exactly!"
