‘Transformers Age of Extinction’ is ‘darker’ and ‘not a kids movie’ says ‘Lost’ star Titus Welliver

Another Transformers film lands this summer and actor Titus Welliver, best known for being the Man in Black on Lost, said the following about his upcoming film, Transformers: Age of Extinction. He called the film darker and said “it’s not a kids movie, I’ll tell you that much.”

Welliver was talking with Nerdist about going from roles on The Good Wife and Argo to a big popcorn summer movie.

 “I’ve now won the hard earned respect of my children because I’m in aTransformers film, and I’ve always wanted to work with Michael Bay and certainly Mark Wahlberg and Kelsey Grammer.” And what can fans look forward to in this installment? “It’s a bit more of a darker vision of the Transformers world… It’s not a kids movie, I’ll tell you that much.”

The last three Michael Bay Transformers movies were all PG-13, it’s probably safe to say Bay is contractually obligated to do the same with Age of Extinction.

Welliver’s warning is not about an R-rating, but a warning to parents about the violence and intensity- check out the full synopsis below

The new film stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li Bingbing.

 Transformers: Age of Extinction opens in theaters on June 27, 2014.
