With Michael Bay hanging up his transforming robot spurs after this summer’s Transformers: The Last Knight, a lot seems to be hinging on the success of his final outing. Paramount already has plans to create a Transformers cinematic universe with a series of movies based on individual characters from the series; should Bay’s final film trip coming out of the gate, it could throw a wrench into a pretty expensive set of gears. And while no one would confuse me with the world’s biggest Transformers fan, the hint of time travel and goofy historical retconning at least makes this one seem kind of fun.

Word has gone around that The Last Knight will be the last Transformers movie for Michael Bay, and for a director this enamored with his franchise, it’s gotta be a little bittersweet. Today, Bay posted an open letter to his crew, his writers’ room, and his fans to say goodbye and to tell us all how much he loves this series and how much he hopes we do too.

Transformers and the Super Bowl are a match made in heaven. Is the NFL’s biggest night not, in its own way, the Michael Bay of televised sporting events? Massive budget, fetish for pyrotechnics, close-up shots of muscle-bound men glistening with hard-earned sweat, oodles of American patriotism, very few women, an overall roiling undercurrent of homoerotic tension — when the new TV spot for Transformers: The Last Knight runs on Sunday night during the big game, it’ll be difficult to tell where the football ends and the gigantic alien robot battles begin.

It’s big, it’s loud, it’s here: feast your eyes on the first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight! After a truly weird production period that involved dragons, King Arthur, igniting the ire of British vets by dressing up Winston Churchill’s childhood home as a Nazi headquarters, and the usual level of Bayhem, we finally have our very first glimpse of the fifth installment in the inexplicably popular franchise.

Even if you’re not a huge fan of Star Wars movies, with all the trailer announcements we’ve seen in the last few days, odds are good you might still find something to enjoy during Rogue One. A few days ago, we shared a fun little rumor that the first teaser for Spider-Man: Homecoming would be appearing before the highly anticipated Star Wars standalone when it hits theaters this December. Not to be outdone, Michael Bay took to social media to share that his first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight would also be included with the film.

When you think Transformers, your mind probably doesn’t immediately go to places like medieval times (the era, not the restaurant) or Stonehenge, but that’s definitely where Michael Bay is taking us for The Last Knight. While we wait for the first official trailer to drop later this week, Paramount has released a new IMAX featurette that reveals a little bit of footage from the upcoming sequel — and it is bananas.

If you’re not familiar with the recent controversy surrounding Transformers: The Last Knight, let me bring you up to speed: a few days ago, The Sun released photos of Winston Churchill’s estate draped in Nazi flags and littered with extras in Nazi uniforms. For American audiences, this was nothing more than another bizarre choice for an increasingly convoluted movie. For British audiences, however, this was a slap in the face of one of their most beloved figures and one of the darkest times in their country’s modern history.

If you’re a fan of internet-famous animals, then you’re probably quite familiar with the story of Freya, the British dog whose heartbreaking story made international headlines. Turns out that director Michael Bay is also a fan of the lonely canine, and in a surprising move that will undoubtedly melt the hearts of even his most critical naysayers, he gave Freya an acting job in the new Transformers movie — opposite none other than Sir Anthony Hopkins.

Watch Michael Bay Use his ‘Bayhem’ Camera on the Set of ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’

Michael Bay is a simple guy. He likes lots of explosions, frequent cutting, and keeping the audience as close to the action as humanly possible. So when digital camera company RED approached the director about designing his own promotional rig, of course it would be handheld, and of course it would be named “Bayhem”. What’s the point in being one of the world’s leading experts in cinematic destruction if you can’t have a little fun with yourself every now and then?
