Michael Bay Unveils Mysterious New Transformer
Lamborghini pulls up in Monument Valley

10 June 2013  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Michael Bay

John Ford, Stanley Kubrick, Sergio Leone: all filmmakers that have made iconic use of Utah's extraordinary Monument Valley. And joining that elite pantheon now is Michael Bay, for the no-doubt equally classic Transformers 4, which has just started shooting in the rocky desert vista. To celebrate the occasion, Bay has revealed a mysterious new Transformer, taking the sleek form of a 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Coupe.

Lamborghini Aventador

The car is, says Bay, "extraordinary and exhilarating", although he gives no indication of which space robot it'll be unfolding into. Lamborghinis in the original toy line included Autobots Sideswipe (red) and Sunstreaker (yellow), but given Bay's free and easy attitude to Transformers canon, that may not be an indicator of anything.

Lambo (as we're going to call it for now) is joining the rest of the Autobots and Decepticons alongside humans Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci and TJ Miller, in a tale that sees humanity still recovering from the horrendous Battle Of Chicago but facing new threats from within and without. 

As well as Utah, Bay is shooting in Texas, Michigan, Illinois and China, with Transformers 4 set to arrive in cinemas on June 27 next year.

RE: How does he keep getting these actors??!
L: UTB L: Bobby TwoTimes I'm amazed how Bay keeps being able to pick up such quality actors in these garbage films??! Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Mark Wahlberg?! Bear in mind he's had Coen Brothers regulars John Turturro, Frances McDormand, plus John Malkovich, Alan Tudyk in the Dark Of The Moon. He must have far more powers in the persuasion department than any of us give him credit for.... retty sure it's the $'s that do all the persuading. as just about to say that!...: More

That's not a Transformer...

This franchise needs a new director.
Seriously, yet another Bayhematic Transforminator movie? Again with zero story, no coherent but horribly dull action scenes? Again with nerve-racking editing which lets you see NOTHING of all the mind-numbing action on screen? Thanks but no thanks. More
