'Transformers: Age of Extinction' trailer feeds us the same old plot points

See also

One highlight Super Bowl 2014 brought to moviegoers was its very first glimpse of "Transformers: Age of Extinction." It was only a short spot, but the one part that had people talking with the Decepticon dinosaur. Since then, fans have been waiting for the first full length trailer to premiere and earlier tonight, March 4, it finally debut on network television.

It's a little difficult to tell what exactly is going on in this first trailer to "Transformers: Age of Extinction." Mark Wahlberg drives by a billboard that reads, "Remember Chicago: Report Alien Activity" that shows a painting of the great city in flames, so it is unclear how far in the future this movie takes place after "Dark of the Moon". He then tows an old Mack truck into his barn in hopes the parts can be sold to help pay for his daughter's college tuition. It does not take long for him to expect that he may have a transformer on his hands and it take even less time for government agents to show up on his lawn.

From there, things get crazy. The Autobots are still around, looking shiny and new. Following the plots of the former Transformer movies, a government agent is telling them that we don't need their help, but then the Decepticons come attacking cities around the world. One of those Decepticons is Grimlock, that dino we all can't stop talking about, but Optimus Prime lays a smack down on him at the end of the trailer.

Say whatever you want about Michael Bay and the Transformer movies, but they make serious bank! The last movie had a good looking trailer, but the movie was not that great. Perhaps this movie will be a really fun ride even though this first trailer is looking like same-old same-old. We'll find out on June 27 when "Transformers: Age of Extinction" opens everywhere.
