A new photo supposedly taken from the storage room of "Transformers: Age of Extinction" props has reportedly shed some light on what type of weapons used in the next Hasbro movie. The picture shows four melee weapons one of which reportedly belongs to a certain Cybertronian which is expected to make a return.
Mark Wahlberg replaces Shia LaBeouf who played the male lead in the first three movies. He will join a whole new human cast that includes Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci and Kelsey Grammer. The machine including Optimus Prime and Bumblebee also gets upgraded. Michael Bay is back as the director.
A bunch of footage and on-set pictures have been flooding the internet since the filming kicked off earlier this year. Chaotic scenes with a railcar crash were filmed in Detroit which was dramatically turned into Hong Kong. Hate propaganda posters against the Autobots were plastered on the street's walls on the movie's set.
The action flick is scheduled for June 27, 2014. Details of the plotline are still scarce. When Michigan Film Office previously confirmed in a press release that the movie would be back to Detroit for filming, they revealed the story would take place years after the invasion of Chicago where "Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet."
"However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control - all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs. The epic adventure and battle between good and evil, freedom and enslavement ensues."
This info was quickly shut down by Paramount Pictures, prompting the Office to subsequently remove it from its official announcement.
