Transformers film is 'continuation' of story

Jan 21 2014, 4:18am CST | by

'Transformers: Age of Extinction' is ''a continuation'' of the previous film, according to Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

The producer of the fourth installment in the hit series insists the sci-fi flick which centres on a mechanic played by Mark Wahlberg - who replaced Shia LaBeouf - will refer to the previous movie 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', which ends with a battle in Chicago.

He told TheHollywoodNews.com: ''On a certain level it's a continuation of the previous stories, in the fact that it acknowledges what has transpired before it. It acknowledges in the last movie, the destruction of Chicago, it's actually something that carries through the sort of emotional repercussions of that, not unlike 9/11 has emotional repercussions in the real world. In a fantasy world there are repercussions to what occurred.

''That plays into the movie, moving forwards with a totally different human cast, who doesn't know anything about the other humans, it's not a reboot, but a continuation, yet you're continuing with a new cast and group of characters. It was a big decision to do that.''

Bonaventura insists that star-studded cast which includes Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, T.J. Miller, Sophia Myles and Titus Welliver will add a ''different dynamic'' since many of them are newcomers to the 'Transformers'.

While Peter Cullen will be returning to voice Optimus Prime, who is the leader of Autobots - usually the main protagonists in the films

He added: ''We miss our friends that we did the first three with, and they were great, and they probably could've done more. But the advantage of doing it this way is that it feels almost like a first movie. It's a very different dynamic than I've seen in a movie, I'm very curious.''

These weren't the sole reason for the greatness of said performance of course, but... what can you say: the Wahlberg cusses well!The lovely thing about the anxiously awaited (at least by the specimen of internet blogger with one, shifty eye on the Oscars) first teaser trailer for The Gambler is that' ...

LOL: ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Honest Trailer

Oct 8 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

The Screen Junkies team isn’t always mean. When they’re genuinely impressed by a movie, they’re honest enough to say so. But if I’m being honest, it’s more fun to watch them rip a deserving target to shreds. And the Transformers: Age of Extinction Honest Trailer is truly a delight to behold. The video tears into all the obnoxious, nonsensical, and downright stupid aspects of the Michael Bay-directed extravaganza, and even d ...
