Courtesy of an interview on /Film.com, we now know that Transformers: Age of Extinction will be filmed in full 3D IMAX, the first movie to feature the new type of shooting. Check out the whole interview with IMAX executives here, and check out the relevant robot snippet below!
Up until now, every feature film shot in full IMAX (of which there have been only a handful – The Dark Knight, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, The Dark Knight Rises, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, Star Trek Into Darkness and now The Hunger Games Catching Fire) has filmed with a 65mm 2D IMAX film camera. IMAX has a 3D film camera available, but most filmmakers find it too big and loud to actually use. (Star Trek Into Darkness is the only of those films to be exhibited in IMAX 3D, but it was post-converted.) It wasn’t until recently that IMAX created a 3D digital camera, which will allow 3D capture in full IMAX. The first filmmaker to use that is Michael Bay on Transformers: Age of Extinction. That camera is much smaller and lighter than the other IMAX 3D cameras and will be used quite a bit in the future. There is no 2D digital IMAX camera, but one is being developed.
After the confirmation, a while back, that Steve Jablonsky will be returning to score Transformers: Age of Extinction, we have another musical tidbit to report. Seibertron.com member mooncake623 has spotted electronic musician and DJ Steve Aoki tweeting about discussing Transformers with Michael Bay - does this mean he will also be contributing to the film's music? Stay tuned (heh) to find out!
Mark your calendars! Transformer fan Donald Grayson contacted Seibertron.com to let us in on a secret: while opening his exclusive Calvin Johnson sneakers/exclusive Generations: Thrilling 30 IDW Megatron, he found a small card, one that teased of "big news" during next year's Superbowl, which will be held on 2 February. Based on previous track records, it is very possible that this is when we will see the first trailer for the much anticipated Age of Extinction film.
Stay tuned to Seibertron.com to emerging details when they arise!
Courtesy of the forums over at 78.dm website, we get a look at three toys from the upcoming movie line. The figures, an armored truck called Duke (probably Hound), a two-headed creature called Paulie (probably Swoop, Strafe or Pteradon) and a Bumblebee called Bumblebee, seem to be Legends or Legion or Scout class, though they could also be very simplified Deluxes. Check out the images below!
Secondly on tonight's agenda, we have the names of the human cast's characters. They are as follows:
*Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager, an inventor.
*Nicola Peltz as Tessa Yeager, Cade's daughter.
*Jack Reynor as Shane Dyson, Tessa's racer boyfriend.
*Stanly Tucci as Stanley, whose role is unknown at this point.
*Sophia Myles as Darcy, a geologist.
*Li Bingbing, who's character goes unnamed and is ominously described as the "CEO of Chinese Transformers".
*Kelsey Grammer as Harold Attinger, who is described by Empire as the "big bad of the non-robot cast".
Rounding out this update, Empire Magazine sheds some light on the setting of Age of Extinction. If you would like to remain spoiler free, this is the end of the article for you. For those who wish to know the outset, continue at your own risk!
=== SPOILER ALERT ===
To paraphrase Empire Magazine, this is what we know: after the third film, the Earth is scarred, and the Transformers have disappeared, but Earth's population remains suspicious of their surroundings, expecting everyday objects to change form and attack them. The Witwicky family has moved on with their lives. When the inventor Cade Yeager unearths an ancient Transformer (a Dinobot, perhaps?), the war between Autobots and Decepticons begins anew.
That about wraps it up for tonight. For those who made it this far, post your thoughts in the Energon Pub! Remember to keep it spoiler free for those who wish to remain so!

At this point it's unconfirmed whether it will be an actual character or just a human vehicle, but we know for sure that it will make screen appearances. It was recently on display at the 2013 Guangzhou Auto Exhibition complete with it's own specialized Autobot emblem and body decals to simulate bullet holes and claw marks.

Thanks again to Seibertron.com member PrymeStriker, we have another video to show you from Entertainment Tonight! The first one revealed the identity of one of the unnamed vehicles from the robot cast of the fourth Transformers movie, the second hints at something that might play a significant part in the plot of Age of Extinction, as well as looking at some of the pranks played by the cast on each other. Click here to view the video, and keed your ears peeled at 1:37 for this potentially spoilerific tidbit:
"The world has progressed and modernized to a point where it can almost cannibalize and kill itself."
ET's exclusive Transformers: Age of Extinction set visit continues across the globe in Hong Kong, where we find out what the cast does in their downtime, including some recurring pranks performed by Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor on their female co-star Nicola Peltz.
"We got Wild Weave Wednesdays...when Mark and I rip out Nicola's weave every Wednesday," shared Reynor (Shane), who plays Peltz's (Tessa) boyfriend in the fourth installment of the Transformers live-action film series.
