Michael Bay Talks Transformers: Age of Extinction

Michael Bay looks to build a better blockbuster.

How do you improve on a franchise that boasts some of the most bombastic, complex, and explosion-filled blockbusters of all time? You go bigger.

At least that’s what Michael Bay is doing for the newest installment of the Transformers series. Along with a remixed cast that trades in Shia LaBeouf for Mark Wahlberg and Kelsey Grammer, Bay promises more screen time with the Autobots.

The scope of the film will also broaden to encompass locations ranging from the heartland of America to the vertical playground of Hong Kong’s skyscrapers.

And if the star studded cast and exotic locals didn’t persuade you, well, there’s always the Dinobots.
