This chapter, which stars Mark Wahlberg and Nicola Peltz, sees a powerful group of scientists scrambling to break new tech barriers.
Speaking at the Berlin premiere, Wahlberg said he approached the role the same way as he would with any other: “As an actor you just wanna be believable in the role. Michael (Bay) is an amazingly talented guy. The big challenge really is just make sure that you live up to Michael Bay’s expectations and you make him happy on a daily basis. That’s pressure enough.”
The film is released in the UK on July 5.
