Right.

We knew it was coming. From the filming in Newcastle, which was used as a double for London, to the newest trailer, this is all shaping up to be the biggest, most explosively awful movie this decade.

The most recent movies were met with awful reviews, and bloated plot lines. The trailer for this new one even messes up.

“Optimus Prime is gone”, they say, then he literally turns up 5 seconds later in the trailer. This movie, however, will be Michael Bay’s last in the series, after he said:

“I still have a great time. It’s fun to do a movie that 100 million people will see. But this is the last one. I have to pass the reins to someone else. It’s time to move on.”

While this may be Michael’s last film, there are a further two Transformers leading up to 2019. Then hopefully we can leave the series behind. The Last Knight will star Mark Wahlberg Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, Stanley Tucci, and John Goodman. Hopefully it’ll tie things up for Optimus and the regular lot of characters, and make way for Bumble-Bee’s spin off later this decade.
