We've heard a lot of rumors about what Transformers 4 will be about, many of which director Michael Bay has said are false. We do know that the fourth film still takes place in the same universe as the previous three films, it's been made clear that the movie is not a reboot, it's a sequel, and it will be loaded with new characters, robots and robot designs.
The story takes place four years after the events in Dark of the Moon, and as of right now the movie stars Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor. We've now got some new solid story details that kind of explain what we have to look forward to with the story, it actually sounds like it could be really cool. The news comes from an announcement that the film will be shot in Detroit Michigan. Here are the details...
Transformers 4 picks up after the end of Transformers: Dark of the Moon after a battle left a city broken, but the world was saved by the Autobots.
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.
I hope to hell that ancient Transformer menace is Unicron as previously rumored, because that would be awesome! What do you think about the plot details revealed here? Transformers 4 is set to hit theaters June 27th, 2014.
