A new Super Bowl spot for the hotly-anticipated Transformers: The Last Knight has been released online.
An extended version of the 30-second spot will play during the annual Super Bowl on Monday, but this one has enough meat to warrant a discussion.
The Last Knight is the fifth film in the Transformers series, and also director Michael Bay’s last (this time for real). In a statement released on Friday, the multi-billion-dollar-grossing filmmaker said that “there’s never been a Transformers film with the huge visual scope and expansive mythology as this movie, The Last Knight.”
“It’s bitter-sweet for me. With every Transformers film, I’ve said it would be my last,” he said, “but, this time might really be it. So I’m blowing this one out.”
And he’s right: This one looks to be more rooted in the Transformers mythology than any previous instalment, without ever compromising on the huge spectacle the series is known for.
Here’s a brief logline: In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
The Last Knight stars Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, Stanley Tucci, Anthony Hopkins, Jerrod Carmichael, John Goodman, John Turturro, Josh Duhamel, Isabela Moner, Gil Birmingham, and Jean Dujardin. It is scheduled for a June 23 release.
