Replacing Shia LaBeouf with Mark Wahlberg seems to have already proven to be a good decision as the actor is already selling "Transformers: Age of Extinction" pretty hard.

On Monday, the 42-year-old star appeared at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, where he spoke about the choice to tackle the project.

According to Marky Mark, he felt that he "had to jump at the opportunity because I really feel like it is probably the most iconic franchise in movie history."

Later, he added, "It is bigger and better than the other three combined. This will be the biggest movie of 2014."
