The first Transformers: The Last Knight trailer is here, and Optimus and the Autobots are back. Has Bay delivered the Transformers film we've all been waiting for? See for yourself:
What Happened To Optimus?
Though only a tease, the fifth installment in the series looks like the robots in disguise are just getting started, hinting at a new and darker path for the franchise. Love him or hate him, I trust in #MichaelBay. This stacked trailer makes a case on why this should be on every fan's radar for next summer. It has all you need in a popcorn blockbuster: giant aliens time-traveling through King Arthur's England fighting Nazis alongside Mark Wahlberg. Just describing it sounds insanely fun. It is also great to hear Anthony Hopkins's voice again now that Westworld is done for the season. He has sure taken a liking to robots.
If there is one thing Bay and the team has promised, its that this is going to be drastically different from its predecessors. The Transformers writers room houses cinematic universe veterans like Nicole Perlman (Captain Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy), Zak Penn (The Avengers), as well as the writers for both Ant-Man and Iron Man. But can the Transformers universe reach the same heights as Marvel? We will have to see, but judging be the behind the scenes featurettes and the trailer it looks like #TheLastKnight is going to be one action-packed ride.
