If Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction doesn’t close out the summer as the highest grossing movie of the blockbuster season, a lot of people are going to be very surprised. And that’s regardless of whether or not it’s any good or whether or not critics savage it. Over time, the films have proven entirely immune to reviews and have raked in billions of dollars around the world. In that spirit, we have a new Japanese trailer, complete with a half-hearted sounding introduction from star Mark Wahlberg.
This video plays like a more stripped down, action packed version of the official American trailer. In large part this strips away all of the superfluous stuff—you know, like story and character—and show you what you came to see, giant robots fighting giant robots, and that’s okay with us. The movies have never been known as a bastion of stellar character work or for displays of acting chops. And you have to worry that Stanley Tucci is going to hurt that bit old robot’s feelings when he tells the Transformers that we, as humans, no longer need them.
