Let’s just put this out there right away…

Massive potential spoilers below!

There have been a number of leaks during the production of Transformers: Age of Extinction. You can go to Google right now and look up the term “Transformers 4 leaked” and see a whole list of leaked location photos and videos. It’s just the age we live in where camera phones and social media are ubiquitous to almost every person living in a large city. A recent video leak may have gone too far — it may reveal a major plot point of the Michael Bay-directed film (or at least the fate of a major character).

According to tfw2005.com, video of Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, and Nicola Peltz interacting with “Optimus Prime” has surfaced on the Internet. Of course, the human actors are interacting with nothing because the visual effects team will add the Autobot leader into the frame later. But you can clearly hear the voice of Peter Cullen, who has voiced Optimus Prime since 1984, in the video. Watch the leak below:



Transformers: Age Of Extinction Toy Concept Art Features Optimus Prime

grimlock-optimus-prime-bumblebee-transformers-age-of-extinctionWith Transformers: Age of Extinction about eight months away, the film’s production has moved from Chicago to Hong Kong. It’s only a matter of time before we start seeing new images from the film, but for now we have concept art from Hasbro that gives us an idea what the Autobots will look like in the latest Transformers movie. We’ve already seen some of the robots in disguise in car form, and now we’re getting a better look at the Autobots as robots.

The images below from tfw2005.com are the licensing artwork for the new-and-improved Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Grimlock, the T-Rex member of the Dinobots. The new images also showoff Optimus Prime in action as a robot with a new look, new weapons, and a shield. The new Optimus looks like he definitely got a new coat of paint when compared to how he looked in the first Transformers trilogy. It’s going to be interesting to see how the filmmakers behind Age of Extinction will explain why the Autobots and Decepticons got a makeover. Optimus Prime almost looks closer to how he appeared in the original animated series, with a Japanese influenced look.

Michael Bay Attacked During Production On Transformers: Age Of Extinction

Michael BayWhile Michael Bay movies are generally known for their chaos and carnage, actually shooting his films has been relatively safe for the production’s cast and crew. That is until someone tried to attack the 48-year-old action director while he was filming Transformers: Age of Extinction in Hong Kong.

According to Variety, a man allegedly under the influence of narcotics stormed on to the production’s closed location in Hong Kong and swung an air-conditioning unit at Michael Bay’s head. Yes, someone tried to assault Michael Bay while he was making a Transformers movie. Bay was not injured in any way, but he “ducked and wrestled the air conditioner from his attacker, preventing what could have been a serious accident.” Expect Michael Bay’s next movie after Age of Extinction to star himself as a kickass new superhero.

Paramount Pictures stated that, after Bay subdued the man, police scuffled with the attacker as well as two other suspects before arresting all three men. No cast or crew (or Transformers) were injured in the attack.
