When Michael Bay returns to direct his fifth and final installment of Transformers, the director will go out with a bang - literally. Bay is known for using explosive stunts in his blockbusters, but Transformers: The Last Knight looks like it will go above and beyond. The folks behind the film recently uploaded a special 360 experience video which highlights one particularly bombastic scene in the film.
“Prepare to get dirty in today’s 360 experience,” the video tells fans. The clip was posted to Facebook and even warned audiences that flying debris might make them flinch when they watched the footage. The actual video gives fans a panoramic view of the crew filming a stunt sequence for Transformers: The Last Knight. Viewers can watch as dozens of explosives are set off, and their recoils can be heard chopping in the background.
The 360 video for Transformers: The Last Knight is not the only one that’s been shared this week. Yesterday, a special IMAX 3D featurette for the film debuted which saw Bay and his team talking about the blockbuster’s camera rigging. The director is using new filming rigs which combine IMAX and 3D shots in real-time, and Bay promises that fans will be stunned by the the clear footage.
