Movie News: NEW Trailer for "The Last Knight" features Earth's biggest threat - Optimus Prime!
As the June 23rd release date for "The Last Knight" rapidly approaches, Paramount has released another trailer for the film. While previous trailers have only hinted at the story, this trailer sets up a surprising villain for the film: Optimus Prime himself! In what appears to be a misguided attempt at redemption, Optimus is set on a path that has him in conflict with everyone from humans to Bumblebee to Megatron! Check out the trailer below (along with some screen captures by yours truly).
TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT opens in theaters June 23
Directed by: Michael Bay
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, Jerrod Carmichael, Isabela Moner and Santiago Cabrera
The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
