Almost a full decade on since their first Herculean tussle, Bumblebee and Barricade are at it again in the latest promo for Transformers: The Last Knight.
Granted, it’s not so much a promo for Michael Bay’s blockbuster sequel as it is a commercial tie-in for Coca-Cola, so don’t be too surprised if the footage above doesn’t actually appear in The Last Knight in little over a month’s time – not that a lack of exposure has been much of an issue for the film, mind you, given the sheer volume of promos, TV clips and viral marketing littering the interwebs in anticipation of June 21st.
Adding fuel to the fire today is another action shot of Bumblebee, who appears to be decommissioning some form of Transformer patrol unit in the most epic way imaginable – even by Bay’s standards, that’s an awful lot of fireworks. Empire is the source of this all-new pic, and to coincide with the reveal, the outlet also posted a brief quote from Michael Bay himself regarding Age of Extinction, including why the director considers the 2014 sequel to be “kind of an outlier” within the Transformers universe. Said he: “Because of losing Shia and just figuring out where we were gonna go. It was testing the waters a little bit. This gets us back in the groove.”
On June 21st, Michael Bay will unveil his latest (and potentially greatest?) entry into Paramount’s live-action juggernaut. Word is that Transformers: The Last Knight will go down as the director’s last dalliance with those beloved robots in disguise, but with rumblings of multiple Transformers spinoff movies kicking into gear over at Paramount, don’t be too surprised if (when?) the filmmaker changes his mind.
