Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz

Once upon a time, Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox ruled the roost when it came to films starring ginormous fighting robots. But, after Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s brief fling with the franchise in 2011’s Dark of the Moon, film number four has mixed up the cast completely.

Joining Mark Wahlberg are Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz, best known for What Richard Did and Bates Motel, respectively. We sat down with the pair to find out where they’d like to see the Transformers world headed and if previous experiences prepared them for a blockbuster of this size.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is released on July 5th. You can see all our coverage of Transformers: Age of Extinction here.
