The 2017 trailer for Transformers The Last Knight, the fifth and final Transformers film to be directed by Michael Bay is out. Anthony Hopkins narrates and it features dynobots. Optimus Prime is back, but we don’t know if he is a hero or a villain.
Transformers The Last Knight is the fifth installment of the live-action Transformers film series and a direct sequel to 2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction. Its budget was 260 million USD.
The movie further explores the Transformers universe and why Earth has been so important in it since primitive times. From the official synopsis:
Optimus Prime finding his home planet, Cybertron, now a dead planet, which he comes to find he was responsible for killing. He finds a way to bring the planet back to life, but in order to do so he needs to find an artifact, and that artifact is on Earth.
From Anthony Hopkins’ voiceover:
It has been said, through the ages, without sacrifice, there can be no victor. Two species at war, one flesh, one metal. Optimus Prime has left us. One hundred billion trillion planets in the cosmos, you want to know. Don’t you, why they keep coming here.
Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci are reprising their roles from Age of Extinction, along with Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and John Turturro from the first three films. Joining them for the first time are Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock and Isabela Moner.
