'Transformers: Age of Extinction' will set up a new trilogy, Michael Bay says -- EXCLUSIVE


If your appetite for shape-shifting alien robots is insatiable, well, buddy … open wide.

Michael Bay tells EW that this summer’s Transformers: Age of Extinction will herald the arrival of at least two more battling ‘bot movies. He thinks of it not as Transformers 4, but as more of a reboot — even though he’s still running the show.

“It’s kind of like a new Transformers,” Bay says. “We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one.” The next…trilogy? “Yeah, it’s the first of a new trilogy,” he says after a moment of hesitation. “I’m not necessarily sure that I’m doing [the others], but that’s what it’s meant for.”

Shia LaBeouf is out, and Mark Wahlberg is in as the human lead, and among the new Transformer characters is the fellow you see above — Grimlock, the fire-breathing leader of the Dinobots, a special class of Cybertronian warrior who changes not into a vehicle, but a T-Rex-style brawler. As the June 27 movie heads to theaters, Bay gave us a rundown of some of the other new additions.


Megan Fox talks 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,' says she'd love a 'Sailor Moon' remake

Megan Fox has long claimed to be a self-described “nerd” but has unexpectedly upped the ante when it comes to her fan-girl obsession with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

“I was really in love with them,” confesses Fox, who stars as reporter April O’Neil in the live-action reboot of the ‘80s cartoon which hits theaters August 8. “I have an older sister that’s 12 years older than me, so part of it initially was because I wanted to be like my big sister. But, it’s a really cool project for me because it was a huge part of my childhood, and it’s always been.” READ FULL STORY

'Transformers 4' Hong Kong set sees a second extortion attempt

Police are investigating a second reported extortion attempt at the Hong Kong film set of the latest Transformers movie, authorities say.

A government statement received overnight said a production company crew member was setting up on the roof of a building in Kowloon on Tuesday when four men “intimidated her and asked for money.”

She called police, who arrested a 35-year-old man. He’s being held pending further inquiries. The three others are still wanted. The case has been classified as blackmail, and a police anti-triad unit is investigating. Triads are Chinese organized crime gangs.

Police arrested two brothers last week after director Michael Bay was assaulted at another filming location. They allegedly demanded 100,000 Hong Kong dollars ($13,000).

'Transformers 4' gets a revealing title and a sandy poster

Four years after the war in Chicago, the Transformers may be facing extinction.

At least that’s the main takeaway from the perfectly hyperbolic new title for Michael Bay’s fourth franchise installment — Transformers: Age of Extinction. Paramount revealed the title and a brand new, sand-covered poster, Tuesday, for the Mark Walhberg-starrer that’s scheduled to hit theaters on June 27, 2014.


'Transformers' and Michael Bay rock Detroit: 'It's insane' says Mark Wahlberg

When Michael Bay and the crew of Transformers 4 descended upon Detroit, residents were warned to expect “simulated gunfire, controlled pyrotechnic explosions, precision driving involving squealing tires, controlled vehicle crashes and smoke” during filming. The Hollywood production didn’t disappoint. Detroit’s Grand Circus Park, dressed up to look like a ravaged Hong Kong, was the site of all of the above, as Mark Wahlberg, who takes over the franchise from Shia LaBeouf, dodged multiple explosions.

Watch two amateur recordings of the scene, which really give a greater appreciation of Bay’s talents — because you know this will look magnificent once it’s all pieced together on screen. READ FULL STORY

'Transformers 4' fire no big deal, says Michael Bay


When news broke that there was a fire on the Texas set of Transformers 4, visions of disastrous pyrotechnic mayhem immediately came to mind. After all, this is a Michael Bay movie about ginormous alien invaders.

But Tuesday’s blaze, which scorched the attic of a 100-year-old house in Pflugerville where the production was filming and sent one injured person to the hospital, was nothing spectacular or dangerous, according to Bay, who blogged about the media’s breathless coverage of the fire.
