Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg has dubbed the upcoming fourth instalment of the hit franchise the "biggest movie of 2014", months before it hits cinemas.

The Fighter actor is making his debut in the robot wars series, taking over for Shia LaBeouf, who played the lead role in the first three films.

During a panel for the movie at the CinemaCon convention on Monday, Wahlberg teased Transformers fans by insisting the upcoming movie will be nothing like they've ever seen in the franchise before.

Wahlberg explained, "For moviegoers all over the world, I guarantee this will take it up a notch. (Director) Michael Bay promised me it would be a very different, stand-alone movie, which it absolutely is. It is bigger and better than the other three combined. This will be the biggest movie of 2014."

His passion for the film didn't stop there, as he explained to the audience that he jumped at the chance to join the franchise because of its lasting legacy in movie history.

He added, "I really feel like it is probably the most iconic franchise in movie history."

Transformers: Age of Extinction is due June 27.
