When you’ve got transforming cars, death-defying stunts, and fields of bullets, it’s no wonder a set like Transformers: The Last Knight would be crazy. But star Josh Duhamel says that it was the craziest set he’s ever been on, and he’s been working on Transformers movies for 11 years now.
During an interview with Screen Rant, Duhamel was asked how the filming experience has changed over the years; if the process was more streamlined now that the franchise is five movies in.
No it’s actually less streamlined now. This particular one was the most… It’s the craziest set I’ve ever been on. Not because it was… Just because there was just so many toys. He had helicopters, and drones and these giant – like two or three cranes going at once with the Porsche Cayenne flying around… It’s truly a sight to see to watch these movies being made and I’ll sit there and I’ll just watch how it all plays. Like all these people come together to help make this movie and it’s kind of an amazing sight to see.
Giant machines and set pieces certainly call for giant props and machinery to bring practical effects to life, and it sounds like Transformers: The Last Knight takes the cake – at least according to Duhamel.
“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.”
