Transformers movie fans have grown accustomed to seeing significant moments of human history re-imagined as a shared history between earth and Cybertron; it’s a process that started as far back as the first film, with Megatron’s frozen body being one of the biggest discoveries in the Arctic; The Fallen being behind the Egyptian empire; a Cybertronian ship crash inspiring the moon landing; and even drama with the dinosaurs.
Well, Transformers: The Last Knight is pretty much hinging its storyline around the idea of Cybertron’s role in earth’s history, going back to Medieval times to tell the story of Steelbane (the titular Last Knight) and how Cybertron’s history and origin poses a new threat for present-day Earth.
Well, continuing with the theme of having Transformers present at pivotal moments of historical conflict, Paramount has released some new promo images for Transformers: The Last Knight that place the Robotic heroes into some iconic moments of history.
Look closer to reveal the truth behind the legends. #Transformers
