The war between man and machine is about to take a dangerous turn when Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters this summer. Ahead of the release, and the trailer that’s supposed to drop this weekend, Paramount has released an awesome new poster for the film.
It’s been made very clear that Optimus has taken a dark turn since his departure from Earth, and he’s not letting anything stand in his way. Not even old friends like Bumblebee.
In this new poster, the two beings appear to have an interesting, albeit dangerous, relationship.
Optimus Prime stands over Bumblebee, sword in hand, staring at his longtime accomplice. Below, Bumblee be is on his knees, working hard with a hammer. It looks as though Prime has made the lovable yellow car his slave.
Transformers: The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Haddock).
The cast of Transformers: The Last Knight features Mark Wahlberg (Planet of the Apes) as Cade Yeager, Isabela Moner (100 Things To Do Before High School) as Izabella, Josh Duhamel (Life as We Know It) as Lieutenant Colonel William Lennox, John Turturro (The Big Lebowski) as Seymour Simmons, and Tyrese Gibson (Furious 7) as Robert Epps, as well as Jerrod Carmichael (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising), Anthony Hopkins (Thor: The Dark World). The voice cast includes Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime and John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane) as Hound.
There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
Michael Bay will return to direct. Transformers: The Last Knight opens in theaters on June 23, 2017.
