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 the studio, don’t be too surprised if (when?) the filmmaker changes his mind.
Not only has Paramount drawn up plans for a Bumblebee-centric spinoff – Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight has been appointed at the helm of that one – in 2018, but with a staggering 14 Transformers pitches reportedly doing the rounds, the franchise isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The only question left now is whether Michael Bay will pull another U-turn in order to dabble in the TF universe once again. Stay tuned for more on that one, but in the meantime, we’ve got two more TV spots for you to feast your eyes on today.
Seen above, there’s not really anything in the way of new footage to be found here, but each promo is a bite-sized tease of the explosive Bayhem that awaits us next month. At this point, you’re either into the Transformers films or you’re not, so Paramount isn’t too worried about trying to win people over. If you find yourself in the former camp though, then the upcoming blockbuster promises a wild, over the top ride, one which will no doubt have fans smiling from ear to ear.
Casting-wise, the studio has recruited a who’s who of A-list talent for The Last Knight, including Hollywood’s bankable supporting star John Goodman – he’s back in the booth to voice Hound, the hulking Autobot and healer – alongside the returning Tyrese Gibson and Josh Duhamel. There’s also room in the film’s ranks for Anthony Hopkins, Stanley Tucci, Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock and Isabela Moner as the street-smart tomboy, Izabella.
“Two species at war – one flesh, one metal.” Transformers: The Last Knight will roar to life on June 21st, and it’ll herald something of a new chapter for Paramount’s CG-laden juggernaut.
