FAIRFIELD — Director Michael Bay hopes to hit box office gold again with the fourth installment in the “Tranformers” franchise, “Age of Extinction,” which opens Friday.

Shia LaBeouf is gone from the cast. He’s been replaced by Mark Wahlberg.

The plot centers on the world being saved after an epic battle. As things start to settle down, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history. Optimus Prime and the Autobots must rise to their most fearsome challenge yet.

The first “Transformers” movie, released in 2007, earned more than $700 million worldwide. The third installment, released in 2011, took in $2.6 billion. Plans for a fifth “Transformers” movie are reportedly being discussed.

Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton star in “Snow Piercer,” which centers on a failed experiment to stop global warming that ends up creating an ice age. All life, sans the people aboard a special train, perishes. It’s rated R.

Opening in limited release Wednesday is:

“Yves Saint Laurent,” a biography about the famed fashion designer who was only 21 when he took over the Paris fashion house founded by Christian Dior. It’s rated R and opens Wednesday.

Opening Friday are:

“They Came Together,” which stars Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd as a couple trying to come to terms with their relationship. The romantic comedy is rated R.

“Drones,” an action movie where two soldiers are tasked with deciding the fate of a terrorist. It’s not rated.

“Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger,” a documentary that follows the trial of the mobster with the same name. It’s not rated.

“The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz,” which focuses on programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz, who took his own life when he was 26 after spending two years in a legal nightmare because of his aggressive approach to information access. It’s not rated.

“La Bare,” a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most popular male strip clubs, La Bare, based in Dallas. It’s not rated.
