"I'm a fat ballerina who takes scalps and slits throats!"
Boom time! Hound, the boisterous Autobot commando who made his cinematic debut in Transformers: Age of Extinction and is voiced by John Goodman, is returning for Transformers: The Last Knight, and now, director Michael Bay has shared promotional artwork showing off the new and improved Hound robot-mode.
Aside from a new paint job, the portly Autobot looks relatively the same. However, there is one major difference; he's now sporting Red Cross emblems, indicating the "wicked warrior" has become a medical officer in the interim.
By the way, Hound's vehicle mode was a Oshkosh tactical defense vehicle in Age of Extinction, but in the upoming film, he'll transform into a Mercedes-Benz Unimog.
The cast of Transformers: The Last Knight will feature Mark Wahlberg ("Planet of the Apes") as Cade Yeager, Isabela Moner ("100 Things To Do Before High School") as Izabella, Josh Duhamel ("Life as We Know It") as Lieutenant Colonel William Lennox, and Tyrese Gibson ("Furious 7") as Robert Epps, as well as Jerrod Carmichael ("Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising"), Anthony Hopkins ("Thor: The Dark World"), and of course, Peter Cullen as the voice of Optimus Prime.
Michael Bay, who has directed the previous four installments in Transformers live-action film franchise, returns to direct the fifth installment. Transformers: The Last Knight was written by a trio of screenwriters: Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Ken Nolan.
The Paramount and Hasbro partnership is responsible for the worldwide blockbuster success of the Transformers franchise, which has earned $3.8 billion to-date, and whose films, directed by Bay, are amongst the highest grossing movies of all time.
Transformers: The Last Knight is set for release June 23, 2017.
