Transformers Age Of Extinction Poster

Listen, Michael Bay is Michael Bay. He makes movies with sexy explosions targeted at teenage boys who loves babes, guns, and slow-motion babes with guns. He is unapologetic, even when he apologizes. He has already made three Transformers movies, about which you either have an opinion or you purposefully have no opinion. Transformers: Age of Extinction will probably not change anyone’s mind, except to the extent that there is a lot more Mark Wahlberg and a lot less Shia LaBeouf and a lot more of robots that can disguise themselves as dinosaurs. “Isn’t a robot disguised as a dinosaur actually more noticeable than just a plain old robot?” is the only logical question anyone can ask about this development, and the only logical answer to that logical question is “SCREW YOU DINOSAURS ARE AWESOME.”

This, at least, seems to be the subtle argument offered up by the new trailer poster for Trans4mers, which finds Optimus Prime riding a robot dinosaur and carrying a totally sweet sword. Because the robot dinosaur is rearing up and roaring, it actually looks a little bit like Optimus Prime is a cowboy riding his horse into the sunset — except, and I can’t stress this enough, he is a “cowboy” who is actually a gigantic robot holding a gigantic sword riding a gigantic robot dinosaur from space or whatever. So, bask:
