After 2011's "Dark of the Moon" will come the "Age of Extinction" for Michael Bay's "Transformers" franchise.
The director has previously revealed that "Age of Extinction," the fourth film in the series, takes place four years after the war in Chicago when the "Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet."
Yahoo! Movies thinks that the new title - and its accompanying sandy poster - hint that "Transformers 4" will bring out the Dinobots.
While Bay hasn't mentioned anything about them, he has clarified that this film will mark a transition from the initial trilogy.
To begin with, "Age of Extinction" will feature a new leading man after Shia LaBeouf decided he wanted to exit the franchise after 2011's "Dark of the Moon." Instead, fans'll get Mark Wahlberg leading a cast that includes newcomer Jack Reynor.
"The story makes a very natural transition, and reason as to why we have a whole new cast," Bay has said. "This 'Transformers' will feel very different than the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy."
Along for the ride are Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer and Nicola Peltz. "Transformers: Age of Extinction" opens June 27, 2014.
