The trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight finally released, giving us a visual glimpse into Michael Bay's last entry in the Transformers live-action movie franchise.
With previous confirmation that the storyline, which is shrouded in mystery, would connect with the historical tale of King Arthur and his legendary sword Excalibur, we didn't see much of that in this teaser except for the first 3 seconds.
Instead we saw a half-dead Optimus Prime floating in outer-space, what we think is a first glimpse at Unicron, numerous historical events, and the possible current destruction of earth, all narrated by the brilliant Anthony Hopkins.
...And that there is a war going on between humans and robots. As usual.
"And this movie, the two lines of mythology give you freedom to go a lot of different places later on that may or may not directly relate to another movie, but it’s opening up the universe in a way that’s probably the most provocative, in terms of the movie. It’s opening a really large universe of what Transformers is, and where they’ve come from, and how we relate to them, and how they relate to themselves."
Yes, we recognize that this IS a Transformers movie with all of the robots and explosions, but the new teaser trailer gave us very little by way of a storyline that actually made any sense. So, We have some questions...
