By now you’ve surely watched (and re-watched) the new trailer for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, so we thought we’d take this opportunity to tease a series of set visit articles we have coming up later this year.  During an action-packed visit to the film’s Detroit set, a small group of journalists had a chance to interview the energetic Bay along with the film’s star, Mark Wahlberg.  And that’s only just scratching the surface of what’s to come!

Also starring Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li Bingbing, Transformers: Age of Extinction opens June 27th.  Hit the jump for our set visit preview.

Here’s a look at what we’ve got coming up in our Transformers: Age of Extinction set visit report:

  • “Things to Know” about the film.
  • A wide-ranging interview with Michael Bay and an on-set interview with Mark Wahlberg 
  • Interviews with veteran producers Ian Bryce and Lorenzo di Bonaventura
  • An interview with the up-and-comers and new faces of the franchise Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz
  • An interview with the legendary Stanley Tucci and Sophia Myles
  • Behind-the-scenes interviews with stunt coordinator Mike Gunther, set decorator Rosemary Brandenburg, VFX supervisor Scott Ferrar, and transportation coordinator Randy Peters, who’s responsible for much more than keeping the hero cars bright and shiny.

I’ll leave you with two final teases: Firstly, even though we got to sit behind the wheels of vehicles worth more than I’ve made in a lifetime, my personal favorite was a hero vehicle that opts for brute force over blazing speed. As for the second, you should know that no one tells a story, deals with crowds, or blows things up quite like Michael Bay.  Be sure to tune in when we post the full set visit for Transformers: Age of Extinction.
