'Transformers: The Last King' Trailer Is Here
Hasbro released the first trailer for the fifth movie in its "Transformers" series, "Transformers: The Last Knight," and it looks absolutely amazing.
From what it seems, the movie starts off right where the last movie left off. Following a series of flashbacks through different war times, Anthony Hopkins' voice tells us after the events of "Transformers: Age of Extinction" the world has been in a crappy state.
Optimus Prime is floating around in space, there is a large robot ship looking to potentially absorb Earth and Mark Wahlberg's accent is as Boston-y as ever.
After that montage in the trailer, the film cuts to a bunch of evergreen robot action shots that basically amount to quick cuts of explosions and people yelling, "THIS OPERATION IS OVER!" or "I WANNA STAY AND I WANNA FIGHT!" Both of which are pretty standard for the franchise.
The ending of the trailer is where all the real, substantial robo-meat is, though.
Obviously, there isn't much information out there, but at some point during the movie, it appears Bumblebee and Optimus Prime straight-up throw down.
The trailer clearly shows Bumblebee charging at a potentially brain-washed Optimus.
Prime, of course, barely flinches, grabbing Bee in a choke hold and slamming him to the ground. He then takes out his sword and goes to stab Bumblebee with only Mark Wahlberg and his dumb Boston accent standing between them.
We obviously don't see if he actually stabs Bumblebee because movie trailers are big movie-blue ball makers.
You can probably guess he doesn't as Bumblebee has his own stand-alone movie coming out soon. Unless that movie features a headless Bumblebee trying to solve crime and/or feel his way around the world, I doubt Bumblebee has anything to worry about.
"Transformers: The Last Knight" hits theaters on June 23.
