Check out this cool Transformers: Age of Extinction Dinobot art

As bad as Transformers: Age of Extinction is, it has a few saving graces. One of them is the cuddly, yet super spiky looking Dinobots. Since the first trailer, the film had been hyping up the appearance of these fan favorite ...

Pacific Rim getting a sequel, more comics and TV show photo
Pacific Rim getting a sequel, more comics and TV show
by Matthew Razak

It seems that Guillermo Del Toro has made everyone's wishes come true and then some. When Pacific Rim failed to be a truly massive hit it was unclear if we'd ever see more, but now according to the above video we'll see a lot more. Del Toro has announced not only a sequel coming in 2017, but also an animated TV show and the continuation of the comic book series. Legendary, the production company behind the films, is evidently pretty confident in the franchise.

I thought Pacific Rim had its flaws, but I'm all about giving it another chance. The action was solid and with a bit better storytelling there could be something really special here. Details are obviously a long way off, but Del Toro already has a script in the works and if this franchise is turning into a universe than we should probably expect some big things.

Transformers: Age of Extinction gets adorable propaganda

While a viral "propaganda" marketing campaign may not be the most original (Carrie, District 9 instantly come to mind as recent examples), I still like to see it. Three years after the events of the third film, Dark of the Mo...

Super Bowl TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction photo
Super Bowl TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction
by Nick Valdez

Folks, this might be the Transformers movie we've all been waiting for. While this official Super Bowl spot is short, it gives us more information than we can handle. In fact, this looks like a completely different series. Gone are the Labeoufs, random hot girl poses, and military action, and here in its place is the lovable (and more action oriented) Mark Wahlberg, a girl who plays his daughter instead of love interest, oh and DINOBOTS. 

Yes the dinosaur robots rumored and teased for the better half of a year have finally been revealed. AND OPTIMUS PRIME RIDES A TYRANNOSAURUS REX. It all looks so good, I'm willing to forgive the other films and look at this from a positive angle from now on. It just looks fun. Transformers: Age of Extinction rolls out June 27th.
