“Transformers: Age of Extinction” Quick Update: Interview with Bay and Character Art

Here’s a quick run down of two Transformers: Age of Extinction news.
Entertainment Weekly recently interviewed director Michael Bay, who stated that he didn’t think of Age of Extinction as TF4, but more of a reboot of a new trilogy, with two more films to follow. Bay doesn’t reveal the reason for Grimlock’s – and the other Dinobots, by extension – presence, but states that viewers will “understand why they’re there when you see the movie.” He does clear up a bit on the Cybertronian whose head turns into a gun, revealing him to be Lockdown, a bounty hunter who is neither Autobot or Decepticon and transforms into the Lamborghini Aventador. Other than the reason for Lockdown and Grimlock’s appearances, there’s also a reason for Optimus Prime’s different attitude as well the government agents’ stance of “robots non grata”.
In addition, Hasbro has recently released a small gallery of character art work, featuring both sides, from Bumblebee to Dinobot Strafe to Decepticon Stinger.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is scheduled for the big screens on June 27, 2014.
