Watch First 'Transformers: The Last Knight' Trailer Brings Chaos to The UK

Transformers: The Last Knight

Michael Bay made his name as a director with his sophomore feature, the rollicking action smash The Rock, which exceeded expectations as a crowd-pleasing thriller. Since then, Bay's career has seen its share of highs and lows, but there's no doubt that his work on the Transformers series has been an integral reason why the franchise has become so popular.

Bay excels at designing and filming extravagant action sequences that stretch the boundaries of reality. Since the Transformers movies revolve around the struggle between rival factions of transforming alien robots, obviously there's a degree of fantasy involved. Bay understands that the  fantasy factor allows him a degree of latitude in his action scenes, but he matches that with characters who display a spirit of comic-book humanity. We root for the heroes and hiss the villains and leave the movie wanting more.

Mark Wahlberg returns as star of the next installment in the series, Transformers: The Last Knight. He's joined this time by Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock and Anthony Hopkins. Fan favorites Josh Duhamel, Stanley Tucci and John Turturro are all returning. Production began in June and has just wrapped in the United Kingdom.

Check out the full first trailer right here.

Here's the first video released below.



Bay says he "had a blast" making the movie and we can see why. Sure, there's the expected vehicular action, with cars flying through the air and such, but the English countryside figures into things more than we anticipated, and the teasing of a historical connection really makes us primed to see how all the giant robots will fit into the picture.
Transformers: The Last Knight will open in theaters on June 23, 2017.
