Neat, though it looks a bit unstable!

Hah! Brilliant! Ironically closer to the size a T. Rex should be! :P

Love the use of the Jurassic Park T. Rex noises. ^^

Agreed. It's about time. I hope he decides to join the Decepticons to wipe out human kind, completely and takes Earth for himself. He won't, though. But I can hope.


Actually, I belive that Optimus would be great "final boss" of the movie. It would be epic if final battle would be Cade vs Optimus. Especially if Yeager would be able to kill Prime with bare hands 8-}

Cullen (as well as Wahlberg, Peltz, and Reynor) is contracted for 2 more movies. Prime isn't dying.

You didn't know about TF5 and TF6?

Yes, but that doesn't mean Optimus wasn't going to die at some point. I was afraid they might kill off Optimus and put Rodimus in there, or something.

Ah, got it.

BTW, I chimed in on the recent talk about the movies' portrayal of Optimus.

Then all hope for New Trilogy beign any better is lost...

Well, it would be possible to keep Cullen as OP voice in flashback/ghost/matrix of leadership voice or something. It isn't impossible to kill him off. But I do defer to Saborblade on nearly everything Transformers related...

An improvement.

And I believe Peter Cullen also has a clause or stipulation in his contract that Optimus can't die (again) while he is voicing the character. After all these years he still has a bad taste in his mouth from Prime dying in 1986.

They definitely don't have to kill Optimus, but Rodimus and Ultra Magnus better make an appearance in the next 2 movies. I still wouldn't mind if either of them was Lockdown's mysterious benefactor, as outlandish as that sounds. All it needs is a good explanation. Or I would take 1 of them arriving and saving Prime at the last moment. I like the new Autobot characters, but it's starting to feel like "The Adventures of Prime and Bee" after 4 movies (well, technically 3), because they're the 2 main characters next to the humans. it was OK for the 1st film, but I was hoping for a little more variety by now. Seems like Prime and Bee are here to stay, and everyone else is interchangeable.

The Transformers: Age of Extinction international trailer has been released! While it's very similar to the recently released "Payoff" trailer, it does have a few small differences. The scene with Crosshairs is slightly extended with him doing a back flip off the ship, and we get the insurance scene with Cade, Tessa, and an unfortunate motorist. This trailer also features Battle Cry by Imagine Dragons. Check it out below courtesy of the Latest News Explorer YouTube channel.

Yep! That's the insurance scene mentioned in the CinemaCon reports, alright! Though, it's craftily had its beer can part cut out in this trailer.

I'm most glad they showed Crosshairs jumping off the ship.

I think I know why the buildings behind Crosshairs are blue. I thought about this a while ago, but never remembered to post about it until now. If that scene takes place in Chicago, and the story is set only 4 years after DOTM, it's reasonable to assume the humans are still repairing the damage done from the Decepticon invasion. Maybe they're just still working on those buildings and placed a sheet of giant blue plastic over them.

I saw this on Monday morning, but Paramount had it removed from various sites. Glad it made it over here, though.

okay.. i'm not sure if you're the same person who commented about this before on another site when the first trailer came out.. or if this is really your first post anywhere about it..

the one building is just colored that way.. the light blue part of the building that's more to the center is common scaffolding netting.

and no, this does not take place in chicago.. cities are constantly renovating buildings and using this netting..

green seems to be more common.. but there are several different colors of this netting.
