The Transformers franchise is critic-proof. It doesn’t matter if all the reviewers and film enthusiasts take a giant steaming pile of sh*t on these movies, it’s still going to make a truckload of money. Expect no different from the latest edition to the franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight.
I’d have to give credit where credit is due, though. This trailer is actually pretty good. As horrible as the movies tend to be, the Transformers franchise has always had excellent marketing campaigns that grab naysayers by our throats and say, “This time, it’s gonna be GREAT!” And I’ll be like, “YES! I BELIEVE YOU!” But of course, the actual movies (besides the first one) never fail to disappoint.
Interestingly enough, the marketing campaign for Transformers: The Last Knight has been less than stellar so far. The trailers have been underwhelming, to say the least. That is until today when Paramount released the international trailer (seen above).
Just a random thought…
In fact, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Bay said that this would be very different from the other movies.
This is not a number five. This feels like a brand new, fresh look into the Transformers.
The official synopsis of Transformers: The Last Knight is as follows:
Humans are at war with the Transformers, and Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving the future lies buried in the secrets of the past and the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Now, it’s up to the unlikely alliance of Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), Bumblebee, an English lord (Anthony Hopkins) and an Oxford professor (Laura Haddock) to save the world.
Transformers: The Last Knight will be released in Malaysian cinemas on June 22, 2017.
