It can be hard to give an entertaining history lesson, but Anthony Hopkins does just that in the newest teaser trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight.
In the minute-long promo, Sir Edmund Burton (Hopkins) begins telling the story of how the Transformers came to be. He goes on to discuss how the robotic beings affected our history, and how the two races were intertwined.

Transformers: The Last Knight opens in theaters on June 21, 2017.
