So far the images from Transformers: The Last Knight have only offered glimpses of the new vehicle forms for the Autobot Bumblebee and the Decepticon Barricade. But that changes today as we get a look at an adorable new Autobot named Squeeks. And with a name like that, you wouldn’t expect him to turn into a fancy sports car or some kind of military vehicle. In fact, he doesn’t even turn into a car at all. Instead, Squeeks is a little blue Vespa scooter.
In addition, to the reveal of the new Transformers character Squeeks, a couple interesting new logos for the forthcoming sixth and seventh installments of the Transformers franchise were revealed, with one of them seemingly confirming that it will be a film focusing on Bumblebee. Check out all the images after the jump. Read More »

Give Transformers a bit of credit: after nine years and four installments, they still manage to surprise us every once in a while. In news you probably weren’t expecting to hear today, or ever, Sir Anthony Hopkins has just boarded Transformers: The Last Knight, the upcoming fifth entry in Michael Bay‘s obscenely lucrative alien robot car series. And yes, this means Transformers: The Last Knight now has an actual knight in its ranks. Read More »
Just yesterday brought the announcement from Paramount Pictures that Transformers 5 would officially be titled Transformers: The Last Knight. Now the sequel is starting to add some cast members to join Mark Wahlberg returning as Cade Yaeger along with franchise newcomers Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael, and their first addition is an old ally.
Josh Duhamel will be coming back for Transformers: The Last Knight, after sitting out Transformers: Age of Extinction. Michael Bay and Mark Wahlberg both welcomed Duhamel back to the franchise online, and there’s a chance Duhamel may not be the only returning star from the first three movies.

Eventually, they’re going to stop making Transformers movies. They have to quit at some some point. All things must pass. However, Paramount is betting big that their lucrative franchise will outlive the interest of director Michael Bay, who is set to helm his fifth entry in the series. After all, they’ve assembled an entire writers room dedicated to hashing out sequels and spin-offs for the next decade or so. Robots who can turn into cars and then back again so they can punch each other in the face are here to stay.
Now, the official Transformers movie Instagram has released a brief teaser for the upcoming fourth sequel, but don’t get your hopes up for anything too extravagant. This is just thirty seconds of ominous noises, an extreme close-up of Optimus Prime’s face, and a title reveal. That last one is the biggie, of course.

I won’t say that the Transformers movie series is cursed. It’s too successful, too huge, and too popular to carry such a label, even if Transformers: Age of Extinction underperformed at the domestic box office. However, the Transformers movie series does have the nasty habit of chewing up actors and spitting them out and ensuring that nobody takes them seriously for a good long while. Look at Shia LeBeouf, whose time in the series saw him transition from a promising young actor into walking, weeping art project. Look at Megan Fox, who was reduced to a sex object and has had to spend the past few five years reminding us that she’s a perfectly fine actress with rock solid chops. Only Mark Wahlberg has weathered this series and that’s because he’s Mark Wahlberg – nothing embarrasses him anymore.
So the news that the young TV star Isabela Moner is joining the cast of Transformers 5 makes me want to grab her parents by shoulders and give them a good shake while demanding for them to explain why they obviously don’t love their child.
