Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Movie Title Sequence Revealed

Posted on 03-04-2014 at 02:46 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Michael Bay's Official You Tube Channel has been updated with the Title Sequence of Transformers: Age Of Extinction. The animation is completely different than the previous trilogy where the name "Transformers" appear on screen after a transformation. The new animation sort of hints a dawn of a new age with a sleek, simple look.

Also, the Teaser Trailer release time has been changed to 7:30 PM EST March 4th; an hour earlier than what was previously told.

i didnt understand the point of releasing this video, it was just title haha.
Starscreamownz
I'm confused by it too but hey, something new kinda.
UltraAlanMagnus
The Rules had Changed.
Repainted
I don't know that I like it, but it's not hugely important.
GAUGE
generic logo is generic.
Oracle_Aesir
Wonder how long it'll be before someone complains about the black used being the wrong shade and how that ruined the franchise forever....
fallen_revenge
New logo, trailers get pushed for earlier release. What else do I want?
RipCurl
How very common and generic I hope the one in the actual movie still transforms.
sharpy39
Generic Hipster Transformer stated to appear: "Dark of the Moon logo was so 2011!"
Red Goblin
OMG They changed the iconic font. THEY RUINED MY CHILDHOOD.

I gots no problems with it. The transforming logo/titles are neat, but often unnecessarily showy.
BeeOtch217
This may look a 1000 times better when edited in with the film and Steve's music. So everyone calm your butts.
Brave Magnus
Too simple. What was wrong with keeping the Transformers font? :S
Jakest123
I feel like it's a bit too slow. I liked the old one more, but it's a frickin' film title, it's not that important in comparison to other aspects of the movie.

This made me realize that the first movie IS starting to be old enough to be part of people's childhoods.

I get rebranding to keep things fresh, but not digging Hasbro's new box font or this, which seems to be a thinner version. Loses the uniqueness of classic TF font, and doesn't offer anything significant in it's place. At least the RID/A/E/C font was a marked change. This just seems like they are addressing a readability issue that doesn't exist.

Overall doesn't matter, will still make a billion.

I kinda agree with the font thing. Maybe they could've kept the Transformers font, but make it narrow like it actually is. However I do like it, even without the music, though if I had to choose a piece of music to go with it, it would very faint and a constant low key.

Titus Welliver did say the movie is going to be more darker and I already get that feeling from the title as it is, maybe some music with make it feel more darker, but then again maybe it won't.
Crainy
Interesting that they would release this. Obviously it isnt as memorable as the title sequences from the other Transformers movies

BUT

a title sequence lives mainly from how it is set up by the scenes leading up to it and the music playing while it is shown, basically, how it is presented. I can see this title sequence, because it is very different, make a bitchin intro in the actual movie if presented properlly and really setting the mood that this will be a very very different movie.

And again, I think they released this to show their willingness to change the movie franchise by a huge deal. Transformers fans should be excited, everything points towards that AOE will indeed be a completely different kind of film compared to the previous ones, maybe it will even be the Transformers movie that alot of the mindless haters in the community wanted.

The new font still implements alot of little things from the same old Transformers font (the elongated T and F, gap in the A, the way the R connects), it's just cleaner and slimmer than the old one. Don't get your panties in a bunch people, sheesh.

It looks way more classic than the outdated A/E/C font, which is somehow still being used for the Collector's Club logo.

I actually think it looks pretty cool.

No, it isn't at all. The Rs and the Os are similar, and that's it. Just look at the A, N, S, and M. It's clearly not the same type of font if you look at the two.
prime326
No no I do not like that at all. I like the previous logos including the brown font in the superbowl spot

Sorry, I went back to edit my original post, apparently while you were setting up your post.

My point is that, no, it's not exactly the same, but for every element that's different there's an equal element that's copied over from the old font.
The new font feel fresh and different (exactly what they've been going for) but still harkens back to the old one.

I don't see why anyone would get worked up over this change. There are very little IPs that don't regularly change their fonts/logos, and although there's an iconic, original Transformers logo, that doesn't mean it has to be used all the time - and next to that, even Transformers has seen it's share of logo variations, modifications and reinventions.

yippie ! the basic fade in and out with a little twist of the letters , wow! Bay how original is that ? not impressed at all
spiritprime
Holy shit! I saw this earlier but I thought it was a fake. :O
bumblebee22
I really don't mind that they changed it but i did like seing the title transform
Catatronic
Everything is going backwards getting more plain, boring, cheap & lame. Just be happy Transformers collectors don't have to put up with that 5POA BS that all the other lines are suffering from.
Janeails22x
This has a Star Trek reveal vibe to it, which is fine for Trek. Leave my Transformers logo alone! Lol

(It's clear with the recent packaging change on the toys, this title was influenced by the New marketing/branding of Transformers. The title from the super bowl mirrored the previous three movies. This was clearly made prior to the packaging change. Not sure I like it, but it's just a title, I suppose.)
Enma
I cant believe people are actualy discussing about a 12 seconds intro with minor changes .
O.Supreme
I dont really care either way, but I'm calling bogus on this. The other 3 films had Transforming title cards. There would be no reason for this one to be any different.
Rodimus Mike
After seeing the previous 3 movie titles where the words transform I kinda wish they had stuck with that instead of the words or letters turning then disappearing.I want the words to transform dammit.
Shinobitron
WOW! (yep thats sarcasm)

Looks good. The simpler the better. I'd actually be fine with an Indiana Jones-style plain-text fade.
mttyns
Don't have any problem with it per se, but find it odd that it doesn't match the logo that's emblazoned on all the AOE merchandise on the sandy desert background. Kind of breaks brand consistency.

Didn't even know that there was a new trailer coming out today...how many hours from now is that?

We shall have to see.

I agree with most of what you said, but I do think they should have kept the original TF font. This just makes the title look generic.

I had expected better than the previous title sequence (a zoom into Sentinel Prime's head). Still, hopefully the prologue will back it up and make it work.
Incepticon
Not sure what the point of this even is considering they already used the traditional TF title style in the teaser and every promo print image released so far.

Oooooh! "Cinematic"!

Title screens are contracted out. This is probably the first "finished" part of the film.

I need some screencaps for that teaser title trailer. Gotta make sure I didn't miss anything....
Shizuka
Where's the mother effing trailer?
Axilus Prime
That's...basically the Avengers logo all over again.
Megatron118
I prefer the previous font and transforming titles. This is kind of neat, but more so generic :/
T-Logicon
Uhh...
I think I'm pregnant.
