transformers the last knight runtime

Reports of Transformers: The Last Knight‘s lengthy running time have been greatly exaggerated, according to director Michael Bay.

News surfaced yesterday — and on Google’s search results — that the fifth entry into the massive Transformers series would boast an equally massive run time of 3 hours and 2 minutes. People understandably freaked out over having to watch three-plus hours of robots bashing each others’ heads in, but Bay chimed in to assuage their fears and deny those reports.

Is it weird to feel pretty good about Bumblebee, the first Transformers spin-off and the start of what Paramount hopes will be a long and healthy franchise post-Michael Bay? The film is set to be directed by Travis Knight, the incredibly talented director behind Kubo and the Two Strings (one of the best films of last year) and now Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to star.

Car Botz Trailer

Even though Transformers may be a worldwide box office sensation, it should come as no surprise that there are international rip-offs of big franchises like this. However, Russia seems to be a little further behind the times when it comes to making their own Transformers as evidenced by the trailer for the their own alien automobile franchise known as CAR BOTZ!, featuring none other than The Room star Tommy Wiseau as the President of the United States of America.

Transformers The Last Knight Trailer

The release of the new Transformers sequel from director Michael Bay is still over a month away, but Paramount Pictures has released the final trailer so it can play in theaters in the coming weeks.

Every Michael Bay blockbuster is full of explosions and spectacle, especially when it comes to Transformers movies, but this one looks like it might be the biggest one yet. From the expansion of the Transformers mythology into previous eras of human history to the possible destruction of Earth, this movie looks enormous.

Transformers: The Last Knight Poster - Bumblebee WWII Mode

Yesterday, a new Transformers: The Last Knight TV spot revealed the Autobots’ secret history of fighting the Nazi’s during World War II. With 14 Transformers movies in development, it seems like the plan is to intertwine their story with that of the human race. Michael Bay’s new film explores how the King Arthur story combines with the Transformers mythology, and the full movie seems delve further into faux WWII history, a plot point that was criticized during production.

Now, a new Transformers: The Last Knight poster reveals Bumblebee’s WWII mode.

Transformers The Last Knight TV Spot

Hot on the heels of a new Transformers: The Last Knight clip that debuted over the weekend, a new TV spot for the sequel has arrived that gives us a clue to how this sequel will expand the mythology of the Transformers. The previous sequel, Age of Extinction, already fit Dinobots into preshistoric times, and now The Last Knight will show us how Transformers fit into human history, from medieval Europe to feudal Japan.

Transformers The Last Knight Clip

This summer brings the next installment of the Transformers franchise, which might finally be the last time that Michael Bay gets behind the camera to roll out the Autobots on the big screen (unless a spin-off down the road tickles his fancy). That means the director isn’t pulling any punches, as if he did before, and a new clip from Transformers: The Last Knight gives us an introduction to two new characters, one human and one Aubobot, as they meet Mark Wahlberg and Bumblebee for the first time.

In addition to the new clip from the film, you can check out a new poster for the sequel. But we don’t recommend checking out a goofy clip that shows Optimus Prime trying to learn a British accent from a dialect coach for no good reason at all.

Hot Rod in Transformers The Last Knight

The most recent trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight showed off plenty from the sequel that is supposed to be the last installment of the franchise directed by Michael Bay. However, one character that we still haven’t seen much of is Hot Rod.

The Autobot has origins going all the way back to the 1986 animated movie when he was granted the Matrix of Leadership and became Rodimus Prime in the wake of the death of Optimus Prime. We’re not likely to see that same story unfold on the big screen, if only because it was a storyline that fans hated, but Hot Rod will still play a key role in the sequel.

A new image of Hot Rod in Transformers The Last Knight has emerged online along with a slew of details explaining what role the Autobot plays in the story. It turns out that he has played quite a pivotal role in the life of one of our new human characters. Find out more below. Read More »

transformers the last knight trailer

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.

Anthony Hopkins Calls Michael Bay Genius

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.
