Michael Bay’s new Transformers film is the first in a new trilogy

The new film, which stars Mark Wahlberg, is set four years after Transformers: Dark of the Night – Shia LaBeouf’s last movie as Bay’s leading man – and the director has revealed he has big plans for the robot franchise.

Bay says, “The story makes a very natural transition, and reason as to why we have a whole new cast. This Transformers will feel very different than the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy.”
