The Transformers films have been known to be violent, scary, and overtly sexual films, but Josh Duhamel is taking his son to the premiere. Initially entering our pop culture as toys, the Transformers quickly became a sensation, getting their own Saturday morning show. With Michael Bay entering the picture, he elevated the tone of the franchise to the now-regular PG-13. With Transformers: The Last Knight hitting theaters this month, the debate of “is the film okay for our children?” is heating up between parents.
Lucky for us, Josh Duhamel, who played Colonel William Lenox in the first three films, has his own take on the debate. Duhamel has a young three-year-old son and he’s bringing him to the premiere. Speaking with ET Online, Duhamel stated that he’ll deal with the consequences after:
That’s a debate that we’ve had back and forth. Is he too young? He’s three… he’ll be four almost by the time the movie comes out. So, you know, I’m going to take him to the premiere, so yeah, he is going to see it. I guess I’ll deal with the post-traumatic stress after. Those movies are pretty intense, even for adults, [but] he loves swords. He loves all that stuff.
Michael Bay has gracefully adopted the PG-13 rating with his films and has often pushed the film’s ratings to the max. Previous films in the hit franchise have featured numerous realistic robot action, as well as the genitalia of said robots. We wish the best of luck to Josh Duhamel.

The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Stanley Tucci, Laura Haddock, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Santiago Cabrera, Jerrod Carmichael, Liam Garrigan, Peter Cullen and John Goodman. Here’s the official synopsis:
“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.”
Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters June 21, 2017.
