Interview: Transformers: Age of Extinction

Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction hit theaters on June 27th. Age of Extinction is the fourth film in the franchise.

Check out my interview with Steve Tihanyi, GM's General Director for Branded Entertainment, and James Bell, Head of Consumer Affairs, General Motors as they tell us about the custom concept cars built just for this movie and share behind the scenes footage from the set of the film.
