A new featurette that explores the relationship between IMAX and Michael Bay’s Transformers films has been released and it shows off a new technique that Bay is using to create what is said to be “mind-boggling” resolution, detail, and quality. The video also features behind-the-scenes footage of the upcoming fifth entry in the franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight, which reveals more flashback sequences that included literal knights riding horses into battle.
The folk over at JoBlo found out some interesting possible details about the movie which seem all the more plausible considering this new footage. For example, the film will center around a mysterious and magical object that is needed to restore Cybertron to its former glory (Make Cybertron Great Again?) and this object just so happens to be connected to Merlin. Yes, the Merlin of “King Arthur” lore. Looking at the logo, it’s not much of a stretch to think it’s going to be the sword Excalibur as swords and Optimus Prime seem to go together like peas in a pod.
Confirmed to appear in the film are Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, and Anthony Hopkins. Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters June 23rd, 2017.
Look, I’m not going to lie to you here. I really enjoyed the first and third entries. The second was about 30 minutes too long and it would’ve done MUCH better had they cut out those two racist stereotype Transformers. As for the fourth one, it was pure garbage. There wasn’t a single moment where I found myself excited nor entertained. Plus, the movie slowed to a dragging crawl once everyone was aboard the alien ship. For a location that could’ve been very suspenseful and intriguing, they made it unbelievably boring.
Fingers crossed the pattern continues and this fifth entry is worth the price of admission. Then hopefully they stop because it seems even number entries are the ones to avoid.
Sorry. No data so far.
