Lessee. Michael Bay has an alien spaceship in the nation’s heartland, an image from Man of Steel. He has a robot using a big ship as a weapon, which we saw in Pacific Rim. At least Bay’s own signature imagery, American flag fetishry, is alive and well:


Astonishingly, sexy blonde 19-year-old Nicola Peltz is actually playing Mark Wahlberg’s daughter, not his girlfriend. Progress!

    …what, this franchise is still alive? (ObGenericFantasyHero: “How can you kill that which is already dead?”)

    Wait… the beat-up old truck that Wahlberg found is actually Optimus Prime? And his vehicle form is now the classic flat-faced truck from the original stories, rather than the ugly long-nosed thing they’ve been using for the films? Progress! :-)

    Haven’t seen the films besides the first one, so I might have missed an explanation there. Don’t really care, though. (Although Wahlberg’s character seems more appealing than LaBeouf’s. And I’m glad Peter Cullen is still getting work.)
