If you don't know the name Jack Reynor, you soon will.

Transformers 4
For the past seven years or so, Michael Bay has focused almost exclusively on "Transformers" films, with one exception—last year's "Pain & Gain." That steroid-infused movie presented an overstimulated, sneering and cynical view of the pursuit of the American dream, following two muscleheads who scheme their way towards the life they think they should be living. Swimming in greed, murder and mayhem, the film portrayed the pursuit of material wealth as an empty endeavour, which seems a bit surprising for a filmmaker who has directed TV ads for major corporate brands and worked exclusively in the studio system. And in a strange way, "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" almost acts as an apology for "Pain & Gain," with the film presenting everything that's the best and worst of Bay's toy movies to the extreme, while proudly waving the American flag.

Transformers: Age of Extinction
“It’s a bit more of a darker vision of the Transformers world… It’s not a kids movie, I’ll tell you that much,” Titus Welliver told Nerdist recently about "Transformers: Age Of Extinction," sending certain corners of fandom into a tizzy. But less reported was Welliver's subsequent clarification, which definitely wasn't written by studio publicists.
