The history of the Transformers on Earth has been teased for a very, very long time. Going back to the original 2005 movie, Michael Bay has worked his way around revealing that long history until now, as it seems the idea will be a focal point of the storyline for Transformers: The Last Knight.
Through what seems like a dozen trailer, it’s evident that The Last Knight will be taking a good chunk of time to tell the story of Transformers’ time on Earth, which dates back to King Arthur and his knights. We’ll all have to wait until late June to really find out what kind of impact they’ve had throughout our history, but for now, the latest trailer for the movie gives just a bit more information regarding the secret history of the Autobots and Deceptions on our planet.
For the first time in the franchise, I’ll be walking into a Transformers movie not really liking what I’ve been seeing from the trailers. It looks just as outlandish as the last few, which is something that will be forgotten not even a week later. Up to now, the trailers for these movies are always off the charts, leading us to “drink the cool-aid,” but ultimately leaving us disappointed (depending on your point of view). Could this be a sign? Is there a possibility bad Transformers trailers lead to a decent movie? I’m not holding my breath, but one can hope, right?
Check out the new trailer below and after doing so, let me know your thought below. Are you looking forward to it? Do you want to find out the Transformers’ secret history? Or are you going just to see the giant robot action? Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters on
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).
