"Transformers 4' Release Date, Cast & Spoilers: Mark Wahlberg Promises 'Age of Extinction' Will Be 'Very Different'
Mark Wahlberg is confident that the newest Transformers film, "Transformers 4: Age of Extinction" will knock it out of the ballpark.
The Wrap quotes the new Transformers lead as saying, "It is bigger and better than the other three combined," Wahlberg said, going on to predict that the film would be the biggest hit of 2014," during Monday's CinemaCon 2014.
During the evening's festivities, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, starting in the new film of Paramount "Hercules," was introduced as 2013's biggest box-office star. Wahlberg couldn't help himself and after expressing affection for the rock, continued on to saying, "Michael Bay put me in this movie, so I'm gonna beat his record in 2014," reports IGN.
Wahlberg shares with the audience that took on this opportunity as he sees "Transformers" to be, "the most iconic franchise in movie history."
42-year-old Mark told guests not to expect this new installment to be a sequel because while it is connected to the story of the first three movies, it's really a film of its own. Without belittling the first three films headlined by Shia LaBeouf and Josh Duhamel, the action star spoke about "Age of Extinction" in a recent interview.
Perezhilton reports that the "Pain & Gain" star admits:
"It was a tighter script, and its own stand-alone thing. I think the emotional core of it, the human element, is going to be extremely powerful. It's an ordinary man trying to do extraordinary things to save his daughter and keep her alive-and this boyfriend he didn't know anything about. He'd had a child when he was in high school and his wife passed away, and the promise he'd made to her was that she wouldn't date any boys until she graduated and that she'd be at the graduation-because we weren't due to the pregnancy. So there's an anchor to it and a realness to it that I like a lot."
Loyal Transformers fans get ready as the 4th installment, "Transformers 4: Age of Extinction" hits theaters June 27, 2014.
