Somewhere deep within me lies this feeling that Michael Bay will make another good Transformers movie with this upcoming 5th installment, The Last Knight. I have nothing to base this off, but if I had to find something, it could be the admiration I have for Bay’s last film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, or the incredible writer’s room that Paramount assembled to craft a good story. All I know is the odds are heavily stacked against Bay, yet I’m still rooting for him to make his “last Transformers movie” a good one.
A mini teaser announcement for a full length trailer has been released online. The 20 second video features a narration from Sir Anthony Hopkins about the Transformers being a thousand year old secret that’s finally coming to light. There’s also plenty of evidence The Last Knight will be another big action spectacle, only this time it’ll be one that takes place over different periods of time. Like many of you, I’m very curious to see how the story handles so many different settings, with the King Arthur era and the Nazis. This upcoming Wednesday we’ll get a better idea with a brand new trailer.
Prepare to rethink your history.
The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
