Paramount Pictures has released two new featurettes for the upcoming fifth installment of the Transformers franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight.
In the first featurette, Sir Anthony Hopkins who plays Sir Edmund Burton in the film teases the secret history of the robots in disguise. The Last Knight itself is set to explore the mythology of how the Transformers came to be.
In addition, Paramount has also released a behind the scenes featurette as director Michael Bay takes you inside the film and goes in-depth on the importance of 3D and the way it enriches the theatrical experience. Transformers: The Last Knight itself was shot natively in IMAX 3D using bespoke cameras.
You can watch both featurettes below.
The film also stars Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, 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 23, 2017.
10 Saturday Morning Cartoons That Could Make Successful Movies
If the Smurfs or Transformers movies have taught us anything, old Saturday morning cartoons are the new grade-A meat for the movie studios. Cartoons can be turned into animated movies, just look at the success of the Spongebob Squarepants movies, but they can also make successful live-action adaptations. Well, with Power Rangers coming out soon, an idea so silly it might as well have been a Saturday morning cartoon it’s time for studio execs to take a look at some of these hidden classics. There’s clearly a lot of money to be made adapting beloved children franchises.
I want to point out a key word to all of you guys in case you get mad at my list.
