There’s not a soul among us who doesn’t wish their car was secretly a Transformer. Sure, it would mean aliens are real and there was great potential for mayhem and mass destruction, but that pales in comparison to a car that becomes a fighting robot. The latest movie in the franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight, has our favorite transforming heroes and some nice looking normal cars, too.
Most of what you’ll see in the trailer is explosions. This should surprise no one as we’re talking about a movie directed by Michael Bay, and the guy is somewhat known for going heavy on the explosions. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with explosions, mind you, and this trailer is exactly the kind of things that makes fanboys cheer.
Amid the explosions and the wreckage, there are also snippets of a couple of noteworthy vehicles powered by traditional engines rather than Energon crystals. If you look carefully, you’ll see a bunch of military trucks alongside a police Mustang. That Mustang meets with a rather explosive ending because, as mentioned, this is a Michael Bay movie.
Even more interesting is a Lamborghini Centenario. This is a limited edition supercar that costs a cool $2.5 million. Based on the police cars giving chase, the Lamborghini is careening through the streets of London. It’ll be interesting to see how the rest of this chase plays out.
There are also snippets of the Transformers. Bumblebee is on hand looking very sad, battered, and barely functioning. Optimus Prime is there too. The only problem is he has abandoned Earth and is floating through space like some forgotten satellite.
Meanwhile, Earth is involved in a huge war that has everything looking a bit Mad Max. It’s a good bet the Decepticons are involved because what’s a Transformers movie without their arch nemesis?
Optimus and Bumblebee step up at some point because we do see them fighting, so all is not lost. Oh, and there are scenes of Nazi Germany and a battle raging between knights and a dragon. If ever there was something for everyone, this movie appears to have it covered.
The movie is set to hit theaters on Juen 23, 2017, so expect to see more previews over the next six months. Also expect more explosions and hopefully more of an explanation about those Nazis and dragons.
