As 2016 draws to a close, with it comes more previews for the summer 2017 movie season. This week, a trailer for the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight has been released. (Read our thoughts on the trailer and watch it in is entirety here.)
Preceding the trailer, some images were released of the cast, crew, as well as some stills from the movie. The saying “A picture is worth a thousand words” easily applies to these stills. As pointed on on Slash films website, the historical flashbacks seen in the trailer indicate that the presence of the Transformers on earth have existed for longer than we expected. The appearance of vintage military and civilian vehicles, plus a spaceship that we have never seen before in previous films, reveals that we will be exploring a new side to the story. Whether or not it will share more parallels to the 1980s Transformers animated film is left to be seen.
While we do not know what to expect for the story of the upcoming film, these stills create plenty of excitement for the upcoming film. (View all the stills here.)
The still of Anthony Hopkins next to a red Lamborghini is a likely indicator of how Hot Rod may be introduced to the story, and how the story of the Last Knight may progress. With the stills, it seems likely that there has been a drastic change in the power of the Autobots presence on earth, and thus the need of a more experienced mind to get them through the dangerous tasks ahead. Even will a time-tested plot formula, we can still expect a great deal of excitement, so we will see what happens in the summer.
Transformers: The Last Knight opens June 23rd, 2017.
