“Earth is scarred by the events of the past three movies, but is moving on after all the giant robots disappeared. Cade Yeager, an inventor, discovers a buried Transformer which sets the stage for the return of the rest of the Transformers.”
Sounds pretty similar to a previously released synopsis for the film that was dismissed as not being accurate. Apparently it was pretty accurate after all.
“As humanity picks up the pieces, following the conclusion of ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon,’ Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet. However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control — all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs. The epic adventure and battle between good and evil, freedom and enslavement ensues.”
Bay goes on to talk about his new movie, saying,
“I’m feeling really good about this one. I love my cast. There’s a huge scale to this, but also huge soul. Well, it’s a director’s world… It’s a franchise world at the moment. You know, Peter Jackson is still in Middle-earth…”
This is a new IMAX poster for the film that features the return of the Decepticons.
