New Transformers 4 deeper plot intel & more dished out by Mark Wahlberg. According to a recent report from, “Transformers 4: Age Of Extinction” main man, Mark Wahlberg, served up some new, deeper plot intel for the film, along with revealing a pretty serious injury he incurred while on the set. He also went into why he accepted the role in the first damn place. It turns out that there were a couple of different reasons.

Mark explained: “Well, it was exciting because it was the first time my kids were really interested in a movie I was doing. Any time they see me with a gun, like Contraband or Pain & Gain, they want to see that, too, but they can’t because of the language and all that stuff. But I loved working with Michael Bay, and I thought he had a really interesting way to make it new, different, and fresh. Plus, being in movies that have the potential to be hugely successful allows me to make smaller movies that I’m really passionate about.”

After that, Mark explained some deeper information about the plotline of his character in film, stating, “It was a tighter script, and its own stand-alone thing. I think the emotional core of it, the human element, is going to be extremely powerful. It’s an ordinary man trying to do extraordinary things to save his daughter and keep her alive, and this boyfriend he didn’t know anything about.

He’d had a child when he was in high school and his wife passed away, and the promise he’d made to her was that she wouldn’t date any boys until she graduated and that she’d be at the graduation; because we weren’t due to the pregnancy. So there’s an anchor to it and a realness to it that I like a lot.”

To cap things off, Mark revealed a pretty serious-sounding injury he got while filming the movie, stating, “I hurt my neck in Hong Kong, and it hasn’t gotten better yet. I just woke up in the morning and couldn’t move, but still had to shoot 10 days of crazy action.” Wow, it sounds like he might need to have that looked at. Anyways, the film arrives in theaters on June 27th, 2014. Stay tuned. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
