Actor Mark Wahlberg received the MTV Generation Award at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, and during the telecast, Paramount revealed a new TV spot from the actor’s upcoming blockbuster, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” which sees him join up with Michael Bay’s hit franchise.

Written by Ehren Kruger and directed by Bay, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” stars Wahlberg as mechanic Cade Yeagar, a father and everyman who becomes embroiled in the high-stakes action that ensues when warring tribes of alien robots duke it out here on planet Earth.

The latest installment, set to open in theaters June 27, introduces Dinobots into the mix.

In a 2012 interview with Hero Complex, Bay talked openly about his plans for a fourth “Transformers” movie, saying at the time that it “absolutely” will be his last.

“Here’s the thing,” Bay said at the time, “it’s tough to find someone who’s done these kind of movies, and to have the complication of creating the new stuff that needs to be in this movie — not just characters but a new type of action, I hope — and that’s a lot for someone new to bite off. And so after this one I will leave it in the best hands possible. That’s the plan.”

Are you excited to see Bay’s latest action opera? What do you think Wahlberg will bring to the franchise?
