The most recent teaser trailer for “Transformers: The Last Knight” shows plenty from the sequel that is supposed to be the last film in the franchise by Michael Bay. The trailer also reveals details about the new characters, including the Autobot. A few days ago, several stills of Hot Rod emerged online with details about the leading characters and how the story comes to an end. The Autobot has been around since 1986. Previously, the character took the form of Rodimus Prime after the death of Optimus Prime. Many fans don’t want to see the same story on the big screen and hope that “Transformers: The Last Knight” is an entirely different plot.

A little about the movie

Transformers: The Last Knight” is an upcoming science fiction film. It is based on the toy line created by Hasbro, and the final installment in the “Transformers” film series. Stanley Tucci and Mark Wahlberg are reprising their characters from “Age of Extinction.” Josh Duhamel, John Turturro, and Tyrese Gibson are returning from the first film as well.

Upon its release on June 23, 2017, Paramount Pictures will distribute the film worldwide. In the absence of Optimus Prime, Cade Yeager has formed a group with Bumblebee and several Oxford professors. He unveils the secret of why the Transformers keep coming back to Earth.

The first Autobot in the film is the group leader, Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen), who is looking for his creators, and gets transformed into a Western Star 5700 XE.

The commando, Hound (John Goodman), gets transformed into a Mercedes Unimog military officer, while the paratrooper, Crosshairs (John DiMaggio) is equipped with the custom split-spoilers.

Previously, it was reported that Bay would not direct the future “Transformers” films. But in January 2016, he confirmed in an interview with Rolling Stone that he would return to direct and produce the final film with Paramount Pictures.

The studio has spent over $70 million on production in Michigan, and hired Jonathan Sela to compose the film score. In September 2016, filming took place in England, including several action sequences and car crash scenes. As with previous installments, Industrial Light & Magic is serving as the visual effects company for “Transformers: The Last Knight.”

The spin-off and sequel

Earlier this month, it was reported that a spin-off, “Bumblebee,” and a sequel, “Transformers 6,” are in the works. The two films are scheduled to be released on June 4, 2018, and June 23, 2019, respectively.
