Physical promotion-wise, AMC has tweeted that 3D standees of Optimus Prime riding on the back of Grimlock will be present in AMC Theatres, while the Transformers Live Action Movie Blog has shared a possibly new poster of the aforementioned pose.

Film composer Steve Jablonsky is a familiar name for those that have followed the previous live-action Transformers film, and for those that are friends with him on Facebook, he’s shared two images pertaining to Age of Extinction. The first one features a wide shot of empty musician sheet stands and chairs, with the caption: “The calm before the storm…. Lockdown doesn’t stand a chance against a room full of LA musicians”. The second one features Jablonsky himself with Bruce Fowler and Jeff Biggers at the mixing board. On the mixing board, there’s a musc sheet cover that hints at two of the tracks’ names which may contain spoilers, so click at your own risk.
