Michael Bay promised us the "mother of all explosions" and that is just what he is going to give us in Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. A new video from the set shows the epic destruction of a Chicago silo. Could this mean that we will finally get to see an epic battle between the Dinobots and the forces of Unicron?
Transformers 4 is almost here and things are starting to heat up in anticipation of the 2014 release. A new video came out last week of an abandoned building in Chicago being blown to kingdom come. The silo that was destroyed is apparently for Hong Kong and has Chinese writing on it.

This isn't the film's only fireworks show. Recently, Bay also released an official picture from the set on Twitter. The photo shows the Bay sitting behind the camera and filming a massive explosion. Obviously, this is the result of what promises to be a massive battle, and no battle could be bigger than the Dinobots vs the minions of Unicron.
The film's producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura spoke to Beijing News recently to confirm the appearance of the Dinobots in the new movie as well as a new look for our old friends: Autobots, Bumblebee And Optimus Prime:
“I can not disclose the specifics, but you can be sure that the joining of the Dinobots will give the audience new excitement. In addition to Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, the appearance of these classic roles changed, today the world’s coolest, most exciting cars will appear in the film, including China’s vehicles, whether you are a car enthusiast, you will feast your eyes and be shocked by them.”
While little is known about the film's villains, hints of the planet-sized Unicron are everywhere.
The film's official synopses refers to the mysterious big bad by saying:
"an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs."
That description alongside the confirmation of Cyclonus, one of Unicron's henchman, and reports of Megatron's severed head possibly being turned into Galvatron lead many to believe it true.
Transformers: Age of Extinction straring Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Kelsey Grammer and Stanley Tucci star will be coming to theaters June 27, 2014
