Transformers 4: Age of Extinction trailer comes with requisite explosions and blondes

Sequel features new-look cast

"Dad, you can't keep spending money on junk," Mark Wahlberg's obligatory hot daughter says in the Transformers 4: Age of Extinction trailer, advice that might have been better directed at Paramount Pictures.

This is the studio's fourth big-budget Transformers outing, and sees Michael Bay return with more robots ripping up highways as Wahlberg looks on ringing gasoline out of his t-shirt and sighing.

With the franchise having resigned Shia LaBeouf  to a world of paper bags and LA art installations, the next instalment features a new-look cast.

Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles and Stanley Tucci join Wahlberg, who plays an everyman dad drawn into a battle between the Autobots and Decepticons after fixing up a Transformer masquerading as a worn-out truck.

Transformers: Age of Extinction will function as a standalone from the previous three movies and is set to open in US cinemas on 27 June and UK cinemas on 10 July.
