Paramount Pictures have released a brand new spot for its fifth entry in their Transformers series, The Last Knight – which hits cinemas this June. It will also serve as director Michael Bay’s final film in the franchise, and his swansong will look to go out with some style. This reflective clip, featuring a voiceover from Sir Anthony Hopkins, briefly chronicles the Transformers’ storied past across human history. From Arthurian legend to World War II.
We also see a gigantic structure, careering across the moon. Undoubtedly toward Earth. Before falling on a mysterious shot of Optimus Prime, with what appears to be Bumblebee at his side – both immortalised in statue form….
To further support the release of this clip, Paramount have also unveiled a new poster for the film – featuring a transformer Knight in the heart of a medieval battle. Which of course is likely to be from the time of King Arthur, who incidentally also appears in the film.
Their secret past will be explored when Transformers: The Last Knight arrives in UK cinemas on June 23rd.
Check out the video and poster below – and check back with Filmoria for more on 2017’s upcoming films.
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.
