Oscar-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg is front and center in a new poster for Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” due in theaters June 27.

Written by Ehren Kruger and directed by Bay, the film sees Wahlberg join the series about warring tribes of alien robots with a propensity for causing massive destruction here on planet Earth.

Fans got a detailed look at the film during last month’s Super Bowl, and the scope of the imagery in the teaser suggests that the master of explosive popcorn entertainment might be looking to outdo himself with the fourth installment in the franchise.

Last May, Paramount released images featuring some of the updated character designs from the movie, including shots of an upgraded Optimus Prime and two new Autobots that will battle Decepticons right alongside him.

The photos, taken on the Monument Valley, Utah, set of the sequel, featured Optimus Prime as a customized Western Star truck, along with the new characters, a sleek Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse and a special race-inspired C7 Corvette Stingray. (Check them out in the gallery above.)

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, 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.”

Other new posters, along with a new trailer for “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” are expected to debut this week.

    i CANNOT believe shia will not be in the new transformers movie…i'm not gonna watch it…it's not the same without him – and really – another one?!?! this is where hollywood irritates me – it's one thing to milk a good tv series with a spin off – but after the fiasco of transformers 2 being redeemed by transformers 3 – they should just call it a day now…or get shia back…either way – i have no interest now in transformers 4…
