Given the huge success of the Transformers trilogy, it makes sense to keep the franchise alive, despite the somewhat lacklustre finale of the third film. And Michael Bay seems to have plans in motion as, in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, he stated:
“It’s kind of like a new Transformers. We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one. I’m not necessarily sure that I’m doing the others, but that’s what it’s meant for.”
Age of Extinction shifts focus from robot protection to exile, set in the near distant future to Dark of the Moon. It’s intended for release on July 10th.
