Does anybody care?....................................no? Didn't think so.

Whoop-dee-flippin'-do.

I was hoping Marky Mark would reprise his signature role of "slow-witted high school science teacher" from The Happening.

The role of his life. An actor in a movie in which you don't need any acting skills. Perfect...for them!
AsianVersionOfET - 5/18/2013, 2:44 PM
That thumbnail image of Mr. Wahlberg is killing me.
DudeGuyMan - 5/18/2013, 2:50 PM
When this movie comes out, people will show their appreciation for it by recreating scenes from The Happening.

Brainiac13 - 5/18/2013, 2:50 PM
This will be more of the same bullshit....this need a reboot with only Cybertron as it will be more epic and get Del Toro to Direct.
sinsear912 - 5/18/2013, 2:50 PM
The f**ks I give...
Dane - 5/18/2013, 2:52 PM
Why a female interest? Just look at Pacific Rim... Come on, Bay. Show us what you can REALLY do. I am skeptical.

TheOneAboveAll - 5/18/2013, 2:54 PM
Wait... Nicola is 18 and Mark is how old?!?!
Dane - 5/18/2013, 2:56 PM
Hopefully Kelsey Grammer can bring redemption.
RacerREX - 5/18/2013, 3:09 PM
I would nail that Peltz to the wall if you catch my drift. Nudge, nudge, grin, grin, wink, wink, say no more squire!!!



And how dare she string Norman along like that anyway! She's a tease!

YES, love me some Sophia Myles



Although Mark Wahlberg is so annoying.
CaptainObvious - 5/18/2013, 3:37 PM
How far into the movie will I stop caring about any of these characters?
TheAbomination - 5/18/2013, 3:39 PM
You can call him the Lord Jesus Christ for all I care. Still gonna be a shit movie.

@ TheOneAboveAll

Besides Wahlber is playing Nicola's father
not the love interest

Brainiac - "This will be more of the same bullshit....this need a reboot with only Cybertron as it will be more epic and get Del Toro to Direct."

This is the perfect example of Fanboyism. A movie about Transformers that ONLY takes place on Cybertron would A) Flop because people who aren't still holding on to their childhood fantasies wouldn't want to see it. Thats why the other films are popular and people like them that ARENT still 12 years old in the head. B) It isn't any truer to the original cartoon, is it? The original cartoon all took place on Earth, except instead of EVER leaking over in to cities (which makes far more sense), the battles ALWAYS were contained to desert scenes. You know why? Cuz animation in the 80 sucked and it was easier to draw scenery like deserts (Transformers) and weak forest area's (Thundercats) and the black boringness of space (Silverhawks). Doesn't it make more sense that a movie about Transformers doing battle on Earth would actually happen in cities and military would get involved? THATS WHAT WOULD HAPPEN! The whole "too many humans, not enough Transformer" argument is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. And as far as the plots and stories being thin and not very well written...well so were the storied in the 80's cartoon.

I'm not saying Michael Bay is a genius. But I am saying that not one of you schmucks that thinks you know what would make a better Transformers movie knows what the hell you're talking about. All of your idea's are stupid as shit and would tank at the boxoffice because you're only thinking about what YOU want, not what the general audience would want. A Cybertron war movie would be awesome. IF it was animated and straight to DVD. But a movie would tank. Just like the TMNT movie did. The fact that they're making a fourth movie despite the fact that all of you clearly don't care shows how much your opinion matters in the grand scheme of things.

I'll watch it. It will probably be a weak script with weak storyline and tons of plot holes and sub-par acting. But I bet the special effects will be amazing, the battles will be fun as shit, and I'll still leave the theater thinking it was entertaining.

And guess what. Most of you will go see it too. So shut up.

staypuffed - 5/18/2013, 4:50 PM
I'm sick of main characters called Jack.
TheBlackNerd - 5/18/2013, 5:09 PM
About 95% of the individuals here saying that they won't see this film will actually be intrigued by its Epicness come 2014. And I'm screen shoting all of these comments so I can repost them here the day when the film releases and everyone is raving about how well it surprised fans everywhere!
Optimist18 - 5/18/2013, 5:19 PM
ALL HAIL THERATIONALONE!
BboiBlack - 5/18/2013, 5:26 PM
NO ONE CARES, yet the last movie made more than a billion, more than any batman movie and probably more than any Ironman movie.

All this is says is that NO ONE SHOULD CARE WHAT FAN BOYS THINK. No one in hollywood anyways.
rocky - 5/18/2013, 5:51 PM
Exactly,
similar to a movie out now
you know, the one a lot of folk here are hating on
but general audiences are loving

Yes, fanboys are just a small percentage
despite how boisterous
RexDartEskimoSpy - 5/18/2013, 6:13 PM
I like the way you think, dudeguyman.
kriklazarus - 5/18/2013, 6:47 PM

spartan6888 - 5/18/2013, 7:06 PM
WHO THE HELL CARES?!
Acerimmer1 - 5/18/2013, 7:49 PM
I just skimmed it but it reads to me like He's not in the starring role. Looks like He's the girlfreinds Dad.
mctrinket - 5/18/2013, 7:57 PM
So Markey Mark is now reduced playing the lead's Dad? WTF? Did Pain & Gain do that poorly at the box office?
MementoMori - 5/18/2013, 8:21 PM
I thought this was somehow supposed to be a reboot of the reboot of Transformers. Ha, that sentence I typed made me laugh. Seriously though, how is this gonna be a reboot? Does anyone know? If so, please post.
kemuael - 5/18/2013, 8:36 PM

GhostKILLERgx7 - 5/18/2013, 9:03 PM
