The title of Michael Bay’s upcoming return to the world of robots in disguise may hint at the characters’ demise, but the latest batch of television spots for Transformers: Age Of Extinction introduces quite a few new additions to the Transformers’ big-screen universe.

Titled “Destroyer,” “Help,” and “Forge,” the three new previews for Age Of Extinction released by Paramount Pictures each take a different angle on the events of the film, and each one offers up something new for eagle-eyed fans.

In “Destroyer,” we get a look at the carnage that results from the latest battle that Earth gets caught up in, with Mark Wahlberg’s character wondering aloud whether he and his family are safer on their own or safer with (presumably) the Autobots. Around the :08 mark, we also get a look at Stinger, a sleek, new, transforming robot that’s reportedly created by human scientists out of Transformers technology. At the :022 mark, we also get a peek at Slug, a robotic Triceratops that’s one of the new Dinobots introduced in the film.

The relationship between the human characters and Transformers is the focus of the second preview, “Help,” with Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) intoning that everyone — humans and Autobots alike — are “all targets now.” Around the :24 mark, just after Optimus utters his iconic call to arms “Autobots, roll out!” four Dinobots can be seen charging across a bridge toward the camera, accompanied by new Autobot sniper Crosshairs (voiced by John DiMaggio), who transforms into a green 2014 Corvette C7 Stingray. The Dinobots glimpsed include the two-headed, flying Pteranodon ‘bot Strafe, the Triceratops ‘bot Slug, the Tyrannosaurus Rex ‘bot Grimlock, and the three-sailed Spinosaurus ‘bot Scorn.

Finally, in “Forge,” the alliance between the humans and Autobots is given the focus of the preview, with Mark Wahlberg’s character calling for his “alien gun” in the fight against the Decepticons. Around the :16 mark, there’s a quick glimpse of Wolf, a canine-like ‘bot that reportedly assists the gun-faced Decepticon bounty hunter Lockdown (voiced by Mark Ryan). 

You can watch all three previews below, and then see the full film when Transformers: Age Of Extinction hits theaters June 27.

The best animated movies on Netflix right now
Mario and Luigi celebrating in The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

There's no chance that Netflix could have planned it this way, but the top two theatrical animated films of 2023 are both currently streaming on the platform. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse joined Netflix's lineup on Halloween, and now The Super Mario Bros. Movie is here as well. That's quite a one-two punch. And that's not all that Netflix has in its arsenal. The original animated film, Leo, is another recent addition. Wish Dragon and The Boxtrolls have both been around for a while longer, but we're throwing the spotlight on those films as well.

Unfortunately, December will also be the last month that Megamind, The Adventures of Tintin, The Road to El Dorado, Kung Fu Panda, Sing 2, and Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit are streaming on Netflix. That's a lot of great movies to lose all at once, but the new additions should make up for it for now. Keep reading for our full list of the best animated movies on Netflix. Then, check back in early 2024 as more animated movies arrive.
