Transformers Are Dangerous Viral Marketing Campaign Begins

It looks like Paramount has decided to kick off their viral marketing campaign for Transformers: Age of Extinction. Below is a new video that warns to "Stay Alert. Be Vigilant. Keep Earth Human" along with a fantastic shot of Lockdown. At the end if says "If You See Something, Say Something Call 855.363.8392" along with the website When dialing the number I just get a recorded message and if hit one hear a ding noise.

As for the site itself, the picture of Optimus is actually divided into three clickable sections when hover over it. The left section brings up the same video as below, the middle has fake press clipping from around the word reporting on the Chicago attack and the right is five different propaganda posters that you can download at various sizes.

Sydney Pre-Screening Description and Story Details

Yesterday a press event was held in Sydney, Australia to help promote Transformers: Age of Extinction that Mark Wahlberg participated in. The event included around 15 minutes of footage from the film that based on the description (below) was probably the same as what was shown to theater execs at CinemaCon.

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark Bruticus Trailer

Below is a new trailer to promote Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark video game coming to all major systems on June 24. The focus is on the Fall of Cybertron combiner Bruticus and his component Combaticons. It seems to suggest Bruticus might be a playable character but I wouldn't be surprised if he is "playable" in the same short limited "hulk smash" way he was used in Fall of Cybertron. Update: Added poster image.

E-Jet Transformers 4 Commercial

Below is the new Transformers: Age of Extinction tie-in commercial for the GAC Trumpchi E-Jet vehicle that is currently only sold in China. The E-Jet probably makes an appearance in the movie as part of the advertising co-finance agreement with the country but its not clear if it will be a named Transformer character, minion chaff, or random background vehicle.
