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
There is only one reason why anybody goes to see "Transformers" films: explosions. Or for the more nerdy, the chance to see whichever [insert toy] come to life thanks to the wonders of CGI. And while that simple incentive has pushed the franchise into billion dollar territory, it's easy to forget how utterly, terribly and horribly unfunny the comedic sequences can be. Well, one clip is here from "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" to remind you of that, with another taking things in a more serious direction.

With Mark Wahlberg confirmed to lead the mega-franchise, Michael Bay started his search for the new young leads that will help the kiddies decide which toy they want most from the upcoming "Transformers 4." And it looks like a decision has been made, and no, you probably never heard of them, and shockingly, neither is a Victoria's Secret model either.
