Now that production for Transformers: The Last Knight has officially wrapped, Paramount Pictures has released the first official trailer for the film. The fifth installment in the Transformers film franchise will live up to its title by adding a medieval element to the story. But don’t hold your breath on the film actually having a plot, this is a Michael Bay feature after all.
That being said, these Transformer films have been very lucrative and has even given Paramount the idea to created a shared universe about the war between the Autobots and Decepticons. And the idea that there could be knights involved is very intriguing, even for a film that has been critically panned time and time again. So check out to see the first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight.
Considering that the film has just finished production, I am surprised that there was even time to get a trailer out. While the film has been light on the details to the plot – again, why even bother trying to find out about it – we know that there will be some flashbacks to Arthurian times due to set photos revealing the human cast wearing knight armor. But as to how they factor into the story, that remains unclear.
What we do know is that Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Stanley Tucci, Tyrese Gibson, and John Turturro all return to reprise their respective human roles they’ve played throughout the franchise. Newcomers include the great Anthony Hopkins, as well as Isabela Moner, Laura Haddock, Santiago Cabrera, and Jerrod Carmichael. Peter Cullen and John Goodman also return to reprise their voice roles as Optimus Prime and Hound, respectively.
Transformers: The Last Knight arrives in theaters June 23, 2017.
