Paramount Pictures and director Michael Bay released an explosive first full-length trailer to the fifth installment in the Transformers film series, “Transformers: The Last Knight.”
As promised by Bay, the teaser depicts not a war between Autobots and Decepticons, but a direct and intense war between humans and the machines in disguise as the two worlds collide, literally.
The trailer suggests that over the course of our planet’s history, we have repeatedly been locked in conflict against the titular machines. In the present era, Transformers on Earth are continually hunted down by Transformers Reaction Force headed up by Santos (Santiago Cabrera) and Lennox (Josh Duhamel). While genius inventor Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) is on the run and joins forces with new characters of young Izabella (Isabela Moner) and Vivian Wembley (Laura Haddock).
As two worlds of human race and robots literally, collide a direct war between the species of flesh and metal is indeed inevitable.
Meanwhile, in a movie synopsis by CinemaBlend, Optimus Prime, assumed to be dead, finds Cybertron a dead planet. Upon realizing that he caused the death of his own planet, Optimus needs to go back to Earth to find an articraft that could bring his home planet back to life.
The narration of Anthony Hopkins’ character states that “without sacrifice, there can be no victory.”
This could be a clue why Optimus Prime asked for forgiveness before killing fan-favorite Bumblebee. In order to get hold of the articraft, the protagonist-Prime-Autobot-turned-evil needs to fight against the race which he saved more than once in order to be successful in reviving his own planet.
Well, it does make sense, sacrifice planet earth, sacrifice Bumblebee, his world will be restored to life again. Or does it?
While the last part of the trailer is too shocking and heartbreaking, it does activate our curious minds. Either Optimus Prime is really now a villain or Bumblebee is going to be dead, fans are really hoping that the coming Michael Bay Transformers movie will offer a better storyline. And yes, enthusiasts really do want to know why the robots keep coming in our planet!
