It’s only been less than a week since Michael Bay bludgeoned the world with Transformers: Age of Extinction, and while the critics have not been particularly kind to the film, it has still raked in more than $381 million across the globe. And just because the movie is still relatively new to theaters doesn’t mean that Paramount doesn’t already have their eyes on the future. They recently unveiled the spectacular packaging for an upcoming special edition Blu-ray, and the producers have already started thinking about possible new additions to the franchise.
I haven’t seen Age of Extinction yet, and to be honest, I don’t know if I’ll get to it in the theaters—there are a lot of films ahead of this one on my need-to-see list—but I do want to own this Blu-ray. There’s no official release date yet, and not word on the extras, but you can already preorder it on Amazon. The most memorable image from the glut of marketing, one that was used with great frequency, is that of the Autobot leader Optimus Prime riding on the back of the Dinobot named Grimlock, who is essentially a robotic fire-breathing dragon. It is completely insane, over the top, and if I do pay money to see this in the theater, it will be because I want to see this blasted on a screen many stories tall.
