Well, you can say a lot of things about ‘The Transformers’ franchise and Michael Bay, but one thing you can never say is that the scope of this franchise is too small. The latest trailer for ‘Transformers: The Last Knight‘ is showing off just how big these movies have really gotten in terms of mass appeal, throwing in everything from the dino-bots, Mark Wahlberg, a medieval backstory potentially told through flashbacks, big explosions, and even a cute little girl and her pet robot just to appeal to the kiddos. Basically Michael Bay is tempting audience members of all ages and market types to come see his latest offering by reminding them that there is literally something for everyone in the latest offering from the franchise set to hit theaters in June.
Too bad it looks like more of the same grueling 3 hours of smash and burn, action and adrenaline, exhausting plot-less drivel that he has been churning out for the last few entries, which is very difficult to sit through – especially if you have already sat through the rest and feel like you have already seen hours of CGI robot’s battle to the death in what feels like a “last stand” in basically every movie of the franchise.
Still, check out the new trailer for yourself below, at least this one has the angle of a little girl with some spunk and a pet robot! (sarcasm may be hard to convey in writing, but trust me, it was there) Feel free to share your thoughts on the ‘The Last Knight’ in the comments below.
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).
