'Transformers: Age of Extinction' Extended Trailer Packs a Serious Punch
The fourth film installment in the machine-morphing hit franchise Transformers will feature some series bot-on-bot battles, and it's not just autobots and decepticons; Transforms: Age of Extinction will introduce a powerful new group of transformers: the dinobots. These menacing machines live up to their namesake by morphing into different types of dinosaurs, adding a fun new element to the Transformers franchise.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is scheduled for release in the U.S. on June 27. If you need a quick fix to hold you over until then, check out the extended trailer below. It shows several different fire-breathing dinobots fighting in both suburban and city areas.
Transformers: Age of Extinction Official Trailer
We did a little digging and discovered that the two dinobots depicted in the extended trailer are Scorn and Slug. Scorn is a spinosaurus and Slug is a triceratops, both of which have menacing spines lining their back. And if you pay attention to the trailer, you'll notice they are both being rode by an autobot. A dinosaur-riding autobot versus a decepticon just doesn't seem like a fair fight.
So, are the dinobots good or bad? In the Transformers universe, dinobots are actually a group of autobots that posses the unique ability to transform into dinosaurs. The film's producers may take the plot in a different way, but it's probably safe to assume that the dinobots are teamed up with Optimus Prime and the rest of the autobot gang.
Of course, Mark Wahlberg, who plays the mechanic Cade Yeager, and the autbot crew will need all the help they can get to fight the Terrorcons -- a group of 5 ultra-powerful decepticons under the command of Galvatron. When all 5 Terrcorns come together, they form Abominus. We don't know much else about Abominus, other than the face that he's probably the most destructive machine-morphing bot of them all.
Transformers: Age of Extinction takes place four years after the events of Transformers: Dark of The Moon. Following the events of Dark of The Moon, the U.S. government has launched a campaign to hunt all remaining Transformers. Cade Yeager, a single father who works as a mechanic, discovers a broken Optimus Prime, which attracts the attention of the government and a Decepticon bounty hunter.
