Michael Bay has been directing Transformers movies for literally a decade now, so you should know exactly what to expect before you click play on the new Transformers: The Last Knight trailer. By now, you know whether or not these movies are for you – you’re either one of the people who loves them to death or one of the people who hate-watches them with a grimace throughout their very long running times. Either way, we’ve all contributed to them being enormous hits.
To be fair, this new one does feature Transformers fighting alongside medieval knights in flashbacks, so at least it has that going for it.

Director Michael Bay has been making feature films for 22 years now. He made his directorial debut with Bad Boys in 1995, and since then he’s given us spectacle after spectacle featuring explosions, super models, sweeping cameras and more. For the past decade, he’s been predominantly busy with the Transformers franchise, but this summer appears to be his last time behind the camera of the franchise (at least until an appealing spin-off for him to direct comes long).
For some fans, Michael Bay departing the Transformers franchise will be a welcome change. But those fans apparently didn’t know that we’ve had a genius behind these movies the whole time. That’s what Anthony Hopkins recently called Michael Bay in a recent interview, favorably comparing the Armageddon and Pain & Gain director to filmmakers like Martin Scorsese. Find out more below.

Last week brought CinemaCon to Las Vegas where studios unfurled some of their most exciting projects to movie theater exhibitors, so they know what to expect from the blockbuster offerings coming to theaters over the next couple years. Tons of new trailers were screened that haven’t been released yet, and there were even showings of both Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and The Fate of the Furious. But Michael Bay and IMAX brought their own kind of hype to CinemaCon.
This summer, Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters, and it’s the only blockbuster that was shot natively in IMAX 3D. A new featurette has Michael Bay explaining just why he chose to shoot in this format while also hyping up the movie with shots of what the director does best: blow shit up. Plus, there’s some new footage from the film that we haven’t seen yet.

The first Transformers film came out ten years ago, and ever since, director Michael Bay has been threatening to walk away from the franchise. It’s a tale as old as time: boy meets intellectual property, a boy blows stuff up in a movie based on said intellectual property, boy gets huffy about returning for the sequel, the studio offers boy money, boy caves and directs sequel. Rinse, wash, repeat.
Now he’s at it again. After hinting that the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight would be his final time behind the camera in this series, Bay says he wants to direct one of the 14 Transformers spin-offs that are currently in development. So let’s run through the greatest hits of Bay’s love/hate relationship with these movies, and then speculate about what a Michael Bay Transformers spinoff could be.
