Okay, so here are just a few of my initial thoughts on this trailer (these are best enjoyed if read while watching the trailer):
-Wait, how the hell did they get Anthony Hopkins to do this?
-Was that a Nazi symbol? World War II robot fighting? Transformers/Dunkirk crossover?
-This is the most dramatic voiceover ever for a Transformers trailer, and that's saying something.
-Three cheers for Aspect Ratio changes!
-"I'm an inventor! I'm so patenting this sh*t!"
-Looks like Josh Duhamel needed another paycheck.
-Didn't we already do the whole Evil Optimus thing in the one where he ripped Megatron's face off and blew Leonard Nimoy's brains out with a shotgun? We're going down this road again?
So I've heard that The Last Knight involves time travel of some kind, as well as a visit back to the days of King Arthur. Honestly, all I can do is laugh. There's plenty of Bayhem on display here, and I'm sure that I'll have a great time watching the famous director blow things up again. I can't say I'm all that interested in the direction of this new series of Transformers films, but honestly, I don't think anyone is. They're just a vehicle for Bay to make the most expensive, outlandish explosions in cinematic history while simultaneously making $1 billion dollars. So yeah, get your earplugs ready for this one.
Transformers: The Last Knight debuts on June 23, 2017.
