Optimus Prime has given a call to arms and autobots are preparing for war. The billion-dollar earning Transformers: Age of Extinction has given way to a Transformers universe and from 2017 on, we would be treated to a new Transformers film every year.
The first in the list is Transformers 5 and it has now been titled Transformers: The Last Knight. Michael Bay, who is returning to direct, also revealed a teaser of the film. It shows a close-up of Optimus and fades out to reveal the new title. It also confirms that the production will begin next month.
Mark Wahlberg will be reprising his role as Cade Yeager in the film. Comedian Jerrod Carmichael has been added to the cast along with Nickelodeon star Isabela Moner as the new female lead.
Michael Bay and Mark Wahlberg retweeted the teaser trailer. “It’s been an amazing journey with ‘Transformers’. Ready for another ride, Optimus?” Bay wrote.
“This guy is a machine. Optimus Prime just made his first appearance on the ‘Transformers’,” Wahlberg tweeted.
In February, Paramount announced that current plans call for three Transformers sequels with one release each year beginning in 2017. Transformers: The Last Knight will open in US theatres on June 23, 2017, followed by a Bumblebee spin-off film in 2018 before Transformers 6 releases in 2019.
