Transformers: The Last Knight TV spot and synopsis get serious

Everything is horribly sinister in this new trailer for Transformers 5

Oooooh! Everything is kicking off in the new Transformers: The Last Knight trailer! There’s also an official synopsis. Check it out:

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.

The film is directed by Michael Bay and stars Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, John Goodman, Laura Haddock, Stanley Tucci, John Turturro, Josh Duhamel, Isabela Moner and Gil Birmingham.

Transformers: The Last Knight is in cinemas from 23 June. Get all the latest science fiction news with every issue of SciFiNow.
