Paramount Pictures has released a new movie poster for "Transformers: The Last Knight". This time out, the poster features Bumblebee with some human soldiers behind him. In front of them is the Nazi stronghold already spotted in previous trailers.

This poster however suggests otherwise (of course, they both could have been there).
Yesterday Paramount Pictures released a new TV Spot for "The Last Knight". Titled "Secret Past", the focus of this spot was the role Transformers have played throughout human history.

I wrote up an analysis of some of these yesterday.
