If the first official clip is anything to go by, Michael Bay‘s Transformers: Age of Extinction is a real Oscar contender. Shown on Monday night’s episode of The Late Show, the clip features Kelsey Grammer as Suit Guy threatening Bespectacled Farm Dad (Mark Wahlberg).
“Aw, jeeze,” you’re thinking. “How the heck is Farm Dad gonna get out of this one?” Don’t worry – we see Farm Dad removing his glasses in a moment of intense gravitas, revealing a dangerously arched eyebrow and showing Suit Guy that he means business. Shit’s going DOWN, son.
The clip is just superb, because THIS is the kind of stuff we want to see! Hollywood studios have lived in a cloud of confusion for so long, believing that audiences swarm to theaters for the Transformers movies to see explosions and giant robots–when really, all we want are some heartfelt conversations in generic, colorless board rooms.
