I don't even know who that guy is.
So, were there this many humans announced for DOTM pre-film?
Because I don't remember.

Transformers: Age of Extinction's Titus Welliver recently spoke to Nerdist about the upcoming film. According to Welliver this film is much darker than the previous trilogy and "not a kids movie". The full interview can be found by clicking here.

[quote]How was it for the actor, best known for his roles on The Good Wife and Argo, stepping into the huge Transformers summer movie franchise? “I’ve now won the hard earned respect of my children because I’m in a Transformers film, and I’ve always wanted to work with Michael Bay and certainly Mark Wahlberg and Kelsey Grammer.” And what can fans look forward to in this installment? “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.”[/quote]

makes sense they'd have a line of toys aimed at young children then.

If this movie is not a kids movie why are they marketing the toys to 4-10 year olds :roll:

Interesting article but it will take someone like Cuaron or Nolan to make anyone over the age of 11 take these movies seriously. Or maybe J.J. Abrahms, he did a bang-up job with another slightly hokey sci-fi property (no offence to any Trekkers intended :D)

I take these movies seriously and I'm older than 11.

Think about DOTM for a second...was that really a kids movie either? How many children nowadays knew of the Space Race, Chernobyl, Commander Buzz Aldrin, and even Kennedy for that matter unless 10 or older. The historical significance, fictitious or not, and the very dark story line made for a much less family friendly picture. I truly hope this one is much darker and from the scenes with Lockdown possibly torturing Prime/the truly menacing look of the dinobots...this one looks to be just that. I wouldn't take my 6 year old niece to see this movie. I would think hard about taking anyone under the age of 10 to see this thing...just my opinion.

not a kids movie?

hey, thanks for the huge info, captain obvious! by the looks of the teaser we got in the superbowl, we couldn't have guessed that by ourselves!

the franchise has been dark ever since ROTF hit the theatres!

and the title.. Age of Extinction... its not a huge hint that this movie wont be a kids movie...

eh...

Not a kids movie, huh? Good thing they thought to add robot dinosaurs, then.

I don't believe this for a second. Neither Bay or Hasbro is going to allow sex or drugs, and I don't see how the violence can be any worse than Prime ripping a Decepticon's head in half or any other robot on robot violence.

I'm likely more conservative in my views on what is and isn't appropriate for children than some, but I don't define any of the Transformers movies as being "kid's movies."

I might even think of AOE as more of a kid's movie if it's darker in the vein of more robot violence and a weightier, more meaningful story, with less crude humor and painfully written human interactions.

So what was with the butt/cleavage shots in all three films, and then we had Wheelie the Humping Autobot?

And in RoTF Sam's parents outright talked about brownies "baked with reefer in it" and showed Sam's mom actually consuming it and then acting like a total idiot afterwards.

[color=deeppink]"not a kids movie"

Kinda sums up what is wrong about all of the previous Transformers movies, really. Good storylines, clever plot and well written dialogue aren't solely in the realm of "adult" (12+) movies - profanity, pointless innuendo and childish racial stereo-types are, though.

A lot of great, great sci-fi movies have been child friendly - Back To The Future, Tron, Ghostbusters ect.

Hasbro should've been tighter with their licence - the movie was an enormous success, but then again I think if they didn't have all the pointless crap that pushed it up to a 12A, it would have been just as much so - huge robots blowing stuff up is always going to sell.[/color]

Wow, if the previous movies were aimed at kids, then I'm scared to see what they'll have in store. (Revenge of the Fallen. Starring: Wrecking Balls, Black Stereotypes, Humping Robot, and introducing, Chevrolet.)

What else could they do if AOE really is worse?

On the juvenile and outrageous side of things, if AOE went any further, it would turn into an audacious and badly-written comedy, not an action film.

Even on the squicky, gory side of things, they've already shown Sam getting all sorts of miniature Decepticon tech forcefully inserted into him in ROTF and DOTM, and we've had Soundwave and his minions hunting down and killing multiple people in DOTM, and those scenes, if not explicit, were quite disturbing and left just enough to the imagination.

Other than mindless and openly shown murder of civilians by Decepticons, I really wonder how AOE could be much darker or more adult-oriented without turning it into a badly done horror or black comedy film.
