Watch Mark Wahlberg in New ‘Transformers’ TrailorBy: Kathy Karadza - March 5, 2014
Mark Wahlberg stars in Transformers: The Age of Extinction, the fourth installment in the franchise, and the trailer was released Tuesday.
The 42-year-old actor plays Cade Yeager, a single father and a mechanic, struggling to support his daughter Tess (played by Nicola Peltz) and protect her from her boyfriend, Shane (Jack Reynor), a race car driver. Yeager discovers a Transformer in the form of a truck he was planning to use for parts. Yeager and his daughter make a discovery that brings down Decepticons and Autobots, and have a paranoid government official on their backs as a result.
The upcoming Paramount release is said to take place four years after the battle between the Decepticons and Autobots in Chicago.
The sequel is the first installment in a trilogy with an all new cast of characters, with the only one from the first three films remaining being Peter Cullen, who continues as Autobot leader Optimus Prime.
The film reunites Wahlberg and director Michael Bay, who worked together on Pain and Gain, released in 2013.
The actor is also featured in the new poster for the film, which he posted on Facebook Monday.
