After a 2007 tentpole release, 2009′s Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon in 2011, Transformers is returning to the big screen, like it or not, next year with Age of Extinction.
The title, which first surfaced as a rumored subtitle when Paramount began buying up domain names and property licences. of those other rumored titles, Apocalypse, Future Cast and Last Stand were among the others in consideration for Transformers 4‘s title.
The title was confirmed yesterday when Yahoo posted the first official teaser poster for the upcoming Michael Bay directed, Steven Spielberg produced and Mark Wahlberg starring summer blockbuster.
The film, a reboot of sorts, includes an all new cast, but largely the same crew from the previous films which have all failed to gain much recognition from critics and fans from the series, but make tons of box office worldwide. Between the three films released, they hold an aggregate score of 37% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The title, Age of Extinction, is allusion to the inclusion of the live-action series newcomers Dinobots. Dinobots were a popular variation on the 1980s toy which spawned multiple generations of full-fledged action figures, McDonald’s toys and shows that were apart of many a young boy’s adolescence.
Those happy memories will surely be ruined come June 24th, 2014 when Transformers: Age of Extinction hits theaters.
