    Have they said how much time has pasted since the last movie?
    Or what happened to Sam or Epps and why they aren't with Prime?

    - 4 years
    - We'll have to wait and see if that is explained. Something to think on is that the government is hunting transformers and they are likely aware that Sam, Epps, etc, have ties to the Autobots.

    Wait the government is hunting them?

    I thought KSI was an independent research company and the government just wasn't doing anything to stop KSI (and was probably benefiting indirectly)

    Do you want to what's funny? Each movie number is how many years from the last one. ROTF - 2 years from TF, DOTM - 3 years from ROTF, AOE - 4 years from DOTM

    Nope. 3.

    Remember Sam just got out of college (so more like 3 and a half really)

    I would think that the humans involved with the first trilogy either have been imprisoned or put into some kind of witness protection program. My guess would be witness protection - the government aren't the ones hunting the Autobots.

    So it's like this:
    TF'07 - 2007 (I think it was set in 2007)
    ROTF - 2009
    DOTM - 2012
    AOE - 2016
    Correct?

    Nah I'm pretty sure the movies are current to the year they're released.

    TF'07 - 2007
    ROTF - 2009
    DOTM - 2011
    AOE - 2014

    That is correct but the movies were filmed a year before the release and you can ad TF5 in 2017 and just maybe TF6 in 2020

    DOTM takes place 3 years after ROTF, so that would set DOTM in 2012. with that being the case, that would set AOE which takes place 4 years after DOTM on 2016

    Not talking about when the movies were filmed and released. They are talking about what years it was "in" the movies.
