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.
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.
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.
Back in June, Michael Bay unveiled the new and improved Bumblebee from ‘Transformers: The Last Knight.’ The black and yellow Autobot swapped out a 2014 Camero for a 2016 Camero custom job, and now we have a new look at the car in action.
Remember people: Begging works.
It looks like Bumblebee is getting a bit of a makeover for the new Transformers sequel — not that it’s the first time. The friendly Autobot capable of stealthily upgrading his wheels has traded in his 2014 Camaro for a newer model, though he’s still sporting his signature colors, of course. Michael Bay revealed Bumblebee’s new look over the weekend, and if you’re a fan of cars — or of Transformers — then you’ll probably want to take a look.
Great Odin’s raven! The official Transformers Twitter account just unveiled the latest member of the cast of next summer’s Transformers: The Last Knight. It’s Sir Anthony Hopkins:
The only constants in this world are death, taxes, and Megatron returning from the dead for another Transformers movie.
Transformers: The Last Knight recently (as in, like, two days ago) began filming in Cuba, with a small crew shooting a few scenes before principal production moves to Detroit on June 6. With that in mind, a new viral video for the fifth installment in the franchise is hinting at the arrival of something big on May 31 — which could very well be the first official teaser.
What, you didn’t think Michael Bay would actually give his new Transformers sequel a silly title like Transformers 5, did you? Of course not. As with its predecessors, the next installment in the franchise has been given a lengthier, more regal name, and is now officially titled Transformers: The Last Knight. Arise, Sir Optimus Prime.
