New Transformers 4 trailer finally digs into the Age of Extinction

All we’ve really seen from the first footage of Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction are a boatload of explosions (not surprisingly), but a new trailer finally digs into the story a bit more.

The latest trailer spotlights some of the story beats, and also lays the groundwork for the new cast of characters set to take over for Shia LaBeouf and company. It’s actually pretty great, and here’s hoping this is a good sign that Bay has this franchise back on track.

The sequel stars Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Li Bingbing , Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, T.J. Miller, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor and Titus Welliver. Not a bad cast list, and we're curious to see how this one shapes up.

Check out the new footage below and let us know what you think:

Transformers: Age of Extinction opens June 27.
