Transformers: Age of Extinction, Michael Bay’s 4th Transformers flick–and the first of the franchise that I have any real hope for–has been releasing a steady stream of TV ads and clips. Paramount has apparently decided to let these snippets speak for the film, rather than releasing it for critic screenings (well, not yet anyway–but opening day is just a few weeks away). Check out a new clip and two TV spots after the jump: This first clip is of an apparently very serious conversation between an evil Kelsey Grammer and a pissed off Mark Wahlberg:
It’s likely you’ve seen at least the shorter of these two TV spots on television already:
Despite three disappointments in a row, I honestly think Age of Extinction has a shot at being decent…maybe not Oscar material, but an efficient use of ten bucks and two hours on a summer weekend at least.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is scheduled to open June 27th.
Here’s the official synopsis:
TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION is the fourth film in director Michael Bay’s global blockbuster franchise. The film begins after an epic battle that left a great city torn, but with the world saved. As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history… while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs. With help from a new cast of humans, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen) and the Autobots rise to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. In an incredible adventure, they are swept up in a war of good and evil, ultimately leading to a climactic battle across the world.
