Transformers News: New Bumblebee Still from Transformers: The Last Knight, Plus Writers Interviewed


The photo shows series regular and Autobot hero Bumblebee, in amongst a traditional Michael Bay conflagration. The new issue of Empire features some extraordinary access to the action movie director, detailing some eye-popping insights into the billion-dollar franchise and its new writers-room approach.

The last film in the franchise was, Age Of Extinction, was “kind of an outlier,” Bay explains in the new Empire. “Because of losing Shia and just figuring out where we were gonna go. It was testing the waters a little bit. This gets us back in the groove”.

Bay’s writers, meanwhile, tell us how they quickly realised that pretty much anything they asked for, they’d get. They had written an English castle-dweller called Sir Edmund Burton, who holds secrets of Transformers lore. “We said, ‘He’s an Anthony Hopkins-type character,’” says co-writer Ken Nolan. “And two days later Michael’s like, ‘So, we’ve got Anthony Hopkins.’” Another new character is Cogman, a psychotic robot butler (“He constantly wants to kill people,” says co-writer Art Marcum) who has been excitedly described by Spielberg as “the greatest four-and-a-half-foot character since Yoda”. Co-writer Matt Holloway, a Downton Abbey fan, one day said as an aside, “It would be so funny if Jim Carter voiced this character.” A short while later, Bay announced, “Jim Carter — we got him.” “It’s good to be Bay,” says Nolan. “Everybody says yes.”

So in addition to fighting Nazis in WWII, Bumblebee also fought a metal gear at one point?

“He constantly wants to kill people,”


Cogman's my new favorite character already.

He wasn't that overly aggressive at the imax footage besides twisting Crosshair's arm and tackling Cade for something he said while he was being rude.

So really so far that statement is not accurate although we just have to wait and see.

You don't have to be overly aggressive to want to kill everyone.

Lest we forget, one of his shticks is supposed to be that he rips off heads and then takes control of the body that he just ripped the head off of ;)

All we need is for Cogman to say "Total OWNAGE, n00b!" every time he steals a new body. :P

That would be nice. Though, I'd only need to hear it once. I doubt it'll happen, but if it did, I'd jump for joy in the theater.

Huh, seems a bit of a random prize. Does this maybe mean there's an upcoming Transformers game for the Switch?

Cannes is a city synonymous with the celebration of cinema so you better belive that they have some awesome new banners for Transformers the Last Knight. These two banners, found on a Russian social media site, feature Optimus and Bumblebee about to have a showdown.

Enjoy!
