In a video from the set of "Transformers: The Last Knight" marking the final day of filming in the United Kingdom, director Michael Bay announced the return to the franchise of John Goodman and John Turturro.
The video also comes with a shaky look at a trebuchet and extras dressed as medieval warriors on a battlefield, as well as news that the film's first teaser should arrive in November or December. Production moves now from the United Kingdom to India and Africa.
The filming of "Transformers: The Last Knight" hasn't been without controversy, with Bay and Paramount Pictures facing criticism for using Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Prime Minister Winston Churchill, as a stand-in for a Nazi headquarters. The director defended the decision, saying, "People have not been fortunate enough to read the script and they don’t know that Churchill in this movie is a big hero. Churchill would be smiling. When you see the movie you’ll understand.”
Opening June 23, 2017, “Transformers: The Last Knight” also stars Mark Wahlberg, Isabella Moner, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Stanley Tucci, Liam Garrigan and Anthony Hopkins.
