Iron Sky 2

The Moon Nazis aren’t going anywhere. Iron Sky: The Ark — the third entry in the Finnish sci-fi comedy series — is coming, this time with a bigger budget thanks to Chinese production partner Shangdong Jiabo Culture Development Co. Timo Vuorensola once again returns to direct. Max Wang (Wolf Totem) wrote the script. Shooting is expected to begin in China next year for release in 2018. If that seems a long time to wait, don’t fret — we’ve still got the second film, Iron Sky: The Coming Race, arriving sometime next year.

Transformers 5 plot

The fifth Transformers movie recently got an interesting title: The Last Knight. Then it went ahead and hired a proper knight, Sir Anthony Hopkins, to join Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duahmel in their robot-alien shenanigans. But what does it all mean? How do all of these different elements come together? JoBlo claims to have the intel. According to them, Transformers: The Last Knight sees Optimus Prime finding his home planet of Cybertron, and trying to bring it back to life via a special artifact. And then:

Somehow the artifact ties into Merlin, the magician of King Arthur lore. Apparently, the power of magic was given to Merlin by a Transformer and somehow the artifact ties into this. As far as what the artifact is, we can’t say, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it has something to do with the famed sword Excaliber (I mean, they did make sure to include a sword in the new logo, didn’t they?). That’s just speculation on my part, but it sounds reasonable. Of course, we’ve seen the effects of time travel in these films already and are aware of Transformers visiting Earth throughout the planets existence, so that certainly fits with the universe they’ve created and now it appears that the story will add British Mythology to the narrative.

Their sources add that we’ll see three new Transformers: The Creator, Squeaks (who turns into a Vespa), and Cogman (who turns into an Aston Martin). The last of those is a vaguely British-sounding Transformer, which is where Hopkins might come into play. We’d caution you to take all this with a grain of salt for now — none of these plot details have been confirmed — but it’s something to mull over until we get something more solid.

In our universe, Las Vegas is a glittering neon oasis of hedonism in the middle of a dusty desert. In the Independence Day: Resurgence universe, it’s as dusty and run-down as anything around it — but it’s still a tourist draw for those who like to drink, gamble, and elope. It’s also a patriotic attraction for those who want to remember the fallen heroes of the War of 1996. Watch the promo, and visit Las Vegas if you like, but try not to be disappointed when you remember that ours is still intact.
