Paramount Pictures has debuted an extended TV spot for "Transformers: The Last Knight" that showcases adorable baby Dinobots, a fearless teen heroine and a very hungry Grimlock.
Arriving on the heels on that bleak new clip, the teaser unfolds primarily from the perspective of Isabela Moner’s Izabella, who relates how she was just a normal kid "until my world fell apart." "Some kids used to tease me," she says. "They say, 'You run like a girl. You throw like a girl. You fight like a girl.' Fight like a girl? Yeah, I fight like a girl."
The promo is intercut with new footage that's heavy on action, and on the film's dystopian world. However, it has a couple of lighthearted moments, owing to the baby Dinobots, Grimlock and the new Autobot Sqweeks.
With Optimus Prime gone following the events of 2014’s “Age of Extinction,” a war for survival has broken out between humanity and the Transformers. Michael Bay’s fifth and final film as director, “The Last Knight” promises to answer one of the core questions of the Transformers universe: Why do these robots in disguise keep returning to Earth?
“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.
The film sets the stage for the planned expansion of the $3.78 billion franchise that includes a Bumblebee spinoff slated for 2018, another Transformers sequel in 2019, and a possible origin movie for the constantly warring Autobots and Decepticons.
Michael Bay's fifth and final franchise installment as director, “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. The film opens June 23.
