ComingSoon were given a very cool new image of Optimus Prime from Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The image was released alongside an interview with director Michael Bay, who provided new details on what to expect in his final Transformers movie.
On the story of the third film, Bay said:
“This one is a more mature storyline, definitely darker, more emotional in the end. You feel the stakes are higher because it takes place in an American city. You’re not disconnected with Egypt and the pyramids. I’m very happy with the movie,” he says, touching lightly on the story we can expect to see. “It’s a small group and you follow them. There’s no cavalry coming. I’ve said this with Ehren, we were talking about concept, we used the term ‘Black Hawk Down.’ We try to make the cavalry unable to come. And it’s more fun to watch our heroes in this epic ending with just a small group. It makes it more intimate.”
You can read the full interview here, where he touches on a potential reboot of the franchise once he’s finished.
Bay also told us to expect the next trailer (the big full-length one) to be released on April 28th.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon stars Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and will be released July 1st.
