Mark Wahlberg Sizzles in Red-Hot “Transformers: Age of Extinction” Trailer

Buh-bye, Shia. Hello, Mark.

Ever since Mark Wahlberg signed on for the lead in Transformers: Age of Extinction, lensman Michael Bay has set out to ensure that the film packs a bigger, badder robot-sized punch than its predecessors.

Does he succeed?

Well, film gawkers won’t know for certain until the action-packed blockbuster takes over the North American box office. (That’ll be June 27, by the way.) But a teaser trailer premiered online Tuesday — and it’s guaranteed to hit Transformers fanatics in their collective bumpers.
