Transformers 4: Age of Extinction - Mark Wahlberg Reveals Back Story of New Movie: A Father Protecting His Daughter
BaCon - Tuesday, December 24, 2013
Lead actor Mark Wahlberg talked to The Daily Beast about the "Transformers: Age of Extinction" movie that will be out next summer. The actor tells us more of the backstory that sets up the fourth movie that he describes as a stand-alone story that has its own story time based on the emotions between a father protecting his daughter.
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.
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.
TakaraTomy has posted new images of their Metal Collection (AKA MetaColle) figures of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Optimus Prime and Bumblebee! Due out at the end of March, these diecast metal figures are small but only run 1,080 Yen each. (The size is more more pronounced when you realize the average height for a Japanese man is five feet, seven inches and the odds are against that hand being terribly big.)
