Mark Wahlberg on Dinobots

Dinobots¬†are reintroduced in the upcoming Transformers movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction, which opens on June 27, 2014. Mark Wahlberg, who plays automobile mechanic Cade Yeager in the movie, spoke to Total Film Magazine about how the Dinobots come to life, saying: “The fans are crazy for these guys. They’ve had a lot of attention historically so we knew that whenever we brought them in it would be met with a huge reaction.¬†The way the Dinobots come to life is spectacular. They’re not the easiest bunch to control, either. It’s pretty awesome how they evolved, how they took the form of those dinosaurs. Then to see what Optimus has to do to get them to comply and save humanity, it’s pretty incredible. They have everything (when asked if they have weapons from the cartoons and comics). Everything you can imagine. They’re giant dinosaurs that are also robots… What’s not to love about that?”

Jack Reynor (Delivery Man), who plays Shane in the movie, was enthusiastic about the Dinobots as well, saying, “And they run around blowing shit up, just generally being crazy. I think if there’s anybody in the world who can bring robot dinosaurs to life and can make them incredibly cool, it’s Michael Bay. I think [audiences’] minds are going to be blown when they see them on the screen.”
