Micheal Bay’s Transformers movie have been massively criticized, with each installment getting harsher and harsher reviews from both critics as well as fans. You would think that no one really believes in Bay’s Transformers, yet viewers continue to see these movies in droves. It’s either audiences are in a proverbial abusive relationship with Micheal bay, ignoring the bad and staying around in hopes of good days that will never come. Either that, or large robots bashing each other for 2 hours, explosions, cities being decimated, Megan Fox’s butt, and hearing Peter Cullen’s voice as Optimus Prime is enough to sell tickets. Whatever the case may be, the formula has continued to work. Enough so, that Paramount Pictures’ has plans to carry on with their Transformers universe with another 3 movies and planned spin-off films; including one based around Bumblebee. Before they get there, audiences have one more Michael Bay-directed Transformers film, which will be the fifth installment in the franchise.
Today Paramount Studios has officially revealed the new title for the film, as well as an postulating new teaser.
Posted on Instagram, a small video features the iconic face of the Autobots leader, Optimus Prime, with purple eyes this time, before the official title, Transformers: The Last Knight is unveiled.
Why are his eyes purple? No explanation other than speculation. Transformers: Age of Extinction, concluded with the leader of the Autobots dashing off into space on a mission to give his robot over lords a reckoning. Perhaps, he comes back all evil, possessed by some Autobot/Decepticon god? Come up with you’re own theories, put em’ on a dart board and wherever the dart lands will surely come out to be better than whatever unpleasant script Paramount dredges up.
The film is also set to see the return of Mark Wahlberg as the male lead following his role in Age of Extinction, as well as new additions Isabela Moner as the female lead, and Jerrod Carmichael in a currently unknown leading role. The Last Knight is set to begin production on June 6th in Detroit
Transformers: The Last Knight is set to hit theatres on June 23rd, 2017.
