Earlier this week, Paramount Pictures released a TV spot for Transformers: The Last Knight that delved into the long, hidden history on Earth of the robots in disguise. It turns out they’ve been among humanity all along, and have been influential in fighting against some of the greatest threats the world has ever known, including the Nazis.
Now the studio has unveiled a new poster of the fan-favorite Autobot Bumblebee, looking as lot different from how fans have come to know him, leading the charge against a Nazi stronghold. As we saw with the previous poster that featured a medieval setting, it’s clear this film is very much focused on rewriting franchise mythology.
We’ll have to wait to see how that unfolds in director Michael Bay’s sequel, and what role the Transformers played in helping humanity become what it is today.
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.
Opening June 21, Transformers: The Last Knight stars franchise veterans Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro, joined by newcomers Isabela Moner, Liam Garrigan, Jerrod Carmichael, Mitch Pileggi, Laura Haddock, Santago Cabrera and Anthony Hopkins
