Transformers: The Last Knight – Everything you need to know
The first trailer of the movie ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ released recently, and we are excited for the fifth installment of this massively hit franchise. Micheal Bay is returning to direct this movie, which incidentally will be his last. Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci reprising their roles from Age of Extinction, alongside Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and John Turturro from the first three films.

‘Transformer: Age of Extinction’ ended with our beloved Optimus Prime, flying away into space with the Seed, sending a message to the Creators that he is coming for them. This movie continues from that point, as we see him floating aimlessly in the vast space.
The trailer shows images from medieval period of King Arthur’s rule and also shots of Nazi flags, suggesting that the film may delve deep into Transformers history and mythology.

The voiceover for the trailer is given by Sir Anthony Hopkins, and we see only glimpses of his character in a largely unknown role. Stunning visual effects along with the addition of new bots like Sqweeks, who turns into a Vespa. With the return of Hot Rod and Grimlock, along with flashbacks of dragon shaped Transformers, fans are surely in treat for a grand action film.

In the end we see a very Civil-Waresqe fight between Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. What could be the reason for this fight?
We have two theories-
1) The bot we see in the trailer is actually Nova Prime, a Prime ancestor of Optimus who is against the Autobots.
2) Optimus Prime is being controlled by Unicron, a giant planet devouring transformer.
