Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) Trailer

Official teaser trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction, the fourth installment of the live-action Transformers film series and stars Mark Wahlberg as the lead.

The climax is set in Hong Kong, a marketing gimmick to attract more Asian movie-goers. Chinese actress Li Bingbing also plays a part, but seeing that she only appears for less than a second in the teaser it’s probably a really a minor role.
