UPDATED: The extended Super Bowl spot that’s playing during the game tonight is now online. Watch it after the jump. Our original story follows below.
As has become customary with every blockbuster summer, there are plenty of sequels on the way. One of them will be Transformers: The Last Knight, the next chapter in the franchise based on the best-selling Hasbro toy property. This will be the first sequel that was developed as part of an extensive writers room planning the future of the Transformers franchise for the rest of the decade and beyond, and some new footage has just arrived.
The Super Bowl will viewed by millions who are right in the demographic that Paramount Pictures is hoping to get into theaters this summer for Transformers: The Last Knight, so it should come as no surprise that the studio will have a Super Bowl spot for the sequel playing during the game. For those who don’t give a damn about the game and don’t want to wait around for it, the Transformers The Last Knight Super Bowl spot has just been released online. Read More »
For years now, Michael Bay has threatened/teased that each new Transformers sequel he directs could be his last. But here we are with Transformers: The Last Knight arriving this summer, his fifth film in the toy franchise. However, this time rather than offhandedly mentioning that this might be his last round with the robots in disguise, Michael Bay took the time to write a letter to fans on his official website. So it sounds like Michael Bay leaving Transformers may truly become a reality. Read More »

The G.I. Joe franchise makes money, but it doesn’t make Michael Bay money. While we’ll see Transformers number five this summer, we continue to wait for a G.I. Joe 3, which may have been delayed due to scheduling. Director D.J. Caruso was attached to direct the film, but he moved on to make xXx: Return of Xander Cage. When Caruso was developing the Hasbro film, he had it end with the G.I. Joe and Transformers universes meeting.
Below, learn why Paramount didn’t go for the G.I. Joe Transformers crossover.

Transformers: The Last Knight promises to take the franchise to all sorts of places it’s never been before, like Arthurian Britain and Nazi-era Germany. But one of the film’s most exciting locations looks to be entirely off-world.
A new high-res still from Transformers: The Last Knight shows Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) and Vivian Wembley (Laura Haddock) poking around some sort of mysterious ruin. It doesn’t look like anything on Earth, which has us wondering if the pair may have followed Optimus Prime into outer space in his search for the Creators. Check it out and judge for yourself below.

Between the Fate of the Furious trailer revealing Vin Diesel’s Dom to be working against the rest of his family and the Transformers: The Last Knight trailer featuring a scene where Optimus Prime battles Bumblebee, we’re awfully close to a new trend: 2017 movies where beloved heroes break bad and turn against their team. The new poster for director Michael Bay‘s fifth Transformers movie doubles down on this concept, featuring the world’s most iconic robot-who-is-also-sometimes-a-car standing over the body (corpse?) of the second most iconic robot-who-is-also-sometimes-a-car.

The first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight arrived one week ago, along with our coverage from a set visit that happened over the summer up in Michigan (find out what we learned right here). However, last week was chock full of a bunch of stuff, including the teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, first trailer for The Mummy, the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the first trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes. So we thought maybe we should swing around to Transformers to try and assess exactly what the hell is going on in that first trailer.
One of the big questions following the trailer’s debut is why Optimus Prime and Bumblebee were fighting (and some theories have been proposed), but there’s much more to dive into in this trailer breakdown, and we’re trying to make sense of it all in our Transformers The Last Knight trailer breakdown after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
After watching the first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight earlier this week, you probably have a lot of questions about what’s going on. Hell, I was on the set of the movie this past summer and know some things Paramount Pictures wouldn’t let us talk about and I still don’t really know what’s going on. But perhaps the biggest question from the trailer is why is Optimus Prime fighting Bumblebee?
Well, it just so happens that an explanation might lie in the mythology of the Transformers, but to discuss the possible explanations would dive into spoiler territory, so we’ll leave that for after the jump. Read More »
We’ve already run through all the new story details and character information from Transformers: The Last Knight in the first part of our report from our visit to the sequel’s set last summer. But that doesn’t convey just what it’s like to be on the set of a movie directed by Michael Bay. The man is known for getting worked up on set and working fast and frenetically, and he demands the best out of his cast and crew, so much that it even sparks them to become more innovative to satisfy his work speed. This is truly something to behold when it’s all happening in front of you. As one of the crew members said, “It’s the Super Bowl every day.”
In the second part of our Transformers The Last Knight set visit report, we discuss what it’s like to watch Michael Bay at work, complete with insight from his crew members that are always kept on their toes while completing 90 setups a day, and some details on the huge action sequences we’re going to see play out in theaters next summer, including some with flares of Braveheart and Saving Private Ryan.
