A new teaser has emerged for Transformers: The Last Knight that further confirms that this movie will be about delving into the history of Transformers here on earth. The spot, (which has been mirrored below) is narrated by Anthony Hopkins and features a slideshow-style collection of images featuring various familiar and unfamiliar faces through history. And while the spot does feature bots like Ironhide and Starscream, that doesn't inherently mean they will be returning to the franchise. Check it out below and tell us what old bots you can find!

Holy sh*t, I am SO stoked to see this movie!! These pictures can totally be part of spin-offs, including that WWII version of Bumblebee in The Bumblebee Movie.

thats.........


......actually interesting.

i STILL dont believe bays capable of delivering an actual film with a decent plot/storyline but it at the very least show's effort.

itll probably still suck but if more stuff like this comes out and its actually addressed decently in the film we could finally have afilm where the writers won out.

I'm pretty sure that's what this is a "preview" or hint at what the Bumblebee prequel is going to be about.

I can totally see Starscream manipulating the "lesser insects" to start wars to either make the Autobots show up or to make humans spend their war resources so that their less prepared for the Decepticons.

This is totally the movie to see characters who died in previous movies like say Blackout or Brawl would be good in that kind of movie.

Clearly this means that the Bumblebee intro they gave in Transformers: The Game (2007) is not canon. I mean it was obvious before, but this confirms it.

None of the video games have ever been canon not even the DOTM game.

Same goes for comics the film makers have never seen them as canon and if it was not evident before it is now.

Instead of going to movie as non paid movie critic go to movie as someone new movie fan you may surprise your self., since when did transformers comics and cartoons had good story and plot evil robots
In disguise try take over universe good bots stop them 99 percent of time they have help with humans can't get no bad than that.,

If you want good plot and story read Shakespeare's , edger Allen Poe or you could compare transformers movies to old black and white cowboy movies and three stooges to add to list

I'm a fan of the movies but your reasoning is flawed what was in the past is no damn excuse for future fiction.

Last Stand of the wreckers is a great story for example and while the G1 cartoon or the god awful Transformers Prime cartoon is rather bad there has been good fiction in our franchise.

That's not even a story that's a snyposis and a good story is about what people do with the setting because originality is long dead so it's up to writers to retell old stories and themes in a new way that may or may not be interesting.

Nobody is watching Transformers for Shakespeare at all people just want good movies wheteher that be a good story or just an amazing watching experience people watch Transformers for Transformers not Shakespeare in fact for me I couldn't care any less for him but I want to see a good "Transformers" movie and I personally think the new one is going to hit the mark or at least close to it.

Now, I don't want to start a brawl (no pun intended) on this topic, but I thought Transformers: Prime was one of the best continuities of the franchise. There some errors in Prime as in any other Transformer story, but it is definitely not "god awful" ...

I was never so bored in any other Transformers show compared to Prime's who's world is so dull, grey and empty like where are the humans even in that new york episode espically when it's sequel RID manages to fix this problem.

The character development was either forgotten or reset and Megatron's plans were never actual plans in the first place he was more incompetent then Movie Megatron who at least made multiple thought out plans.

Remember Cliffjumper's wasted potential or Breakdown's or even Dreadwing's?

The cast was awful on the Autobot side with the worse boring cardboard Optimus, angsty, hypocrite Arcee who contently forgets her development to chase after grudges and call out others for doing the same, Bulkhead who was just there even after they made a "big" deal on his injury that never effected anything afterwards, Bumblebee suffered for his missing voice for the majority of the show with movie Bumblebee at least being active in his body language and using the radio where Prime Bee does not, Ultra Magnus also suffered from poorly used stoic personality and being a last season character who constantly got his aft kicked.

Ratchet, Smokescreen and Wheeljack were the only remotely interesting Autobots and the latter two kinda had thier story arcs "dropped" like Smokescreen's "destiny" and Wheeljack's loner thing which he forgets about without thinking and joins in season 3 which was a rushed season overall mostly due to the original plans being dropped besides Ultra Magnus and Shockwave.

The cons besides idiot Megatron were decent but suffered from the writers having no idea what to do with them either making them dead or packed away also Starscream's contently changing his personality is he traitorous or loyal, is he a serious and deadly warrior or an incompetent comedy relief who somehow is the second in command of the Decepticons which says a lot about Megatron's intelligence.

The stakes were never raised and the Decepticons never have the advantage and the status quo is always reset.

I expect the 2 hour movies to have these flaws not the longest Transformers cartoon since G1, how does Animated a much shorter show with a lighter tone manage to be much more interesting and mature then that waste of time.

Oh and in real life the show staff decided to diss Hasbro's plans and were disrespectful with the whole Aligned continuity thing.

Seriously though, how awesome would it be to have him show up out of nowhere in this movie in a new body? I can picture him being like a silver Kia Soul with red and blue diagonal stripes going across the hood

Dreadwing had a ton of screen time and screen presence, at least enough for me to remember him fondly. He was a star of the show for me, and I wouldnt call him wasted potential. Sure I wouldnt mind seeing him more, but i feel we got a nice amount, much more than a Star Wars fan ever got of Boba fett :lol:

As for Breakdown, there wasnt much character to him. he was more the solomon grundy type (who then even became a zombie). As for clffjumper, well the Rock is way too expensive to keep as part of the main cast ;)

All in all, I thought it was one of the better efforts in the history of small screen fiction and i had a good time. It brought me back into collecting too. Loved the cross between movie and G1 aesthetic and the toyline is one of the best we have ever gotten. I am with you SnooDawg (great username!). But of course, I respect everyone's opinion of these shows, and of these movies as well. I must admit i do preffer Prime to the films though, simply for it focusing more on the Robots and having better characters, and an Excellent Megatron! (not the toy though)

No one, Bruticus is not in this film :( But then again that might be a blessing, remember the last time the films had a combiner? :SICK:

Looking forward to this movie but my main concern is that the decepticons will get the shaft once again. So far, they appear to be in only 1 scene as a group.

Pretty sure Bronzewolf might've confused the bot at 0:17 for Bruticus when it appears to be a plane, as I've previously stated

Via the official social media accounts for Transformers: The Last Knight, we have an announcement clip for a new upcoming trailer to be released next Wednesday (12 April)! The current tags include 'rethink your history' and 'unearth the secret history of the Transformers', the latter spoken in the voice over by Anthony Hopkins. Check out the clip below, and let us know what you think this is suggesting before the next trailer drops next week!

That would be awful.

I'm all for Jazz showing up in prequels and flashbacks but he is dead and bringing characters back from the dead is absolutely cheap and is awful story telling unless it's done to bring the plot forward and even then it has to be done right if Jazz was going to come back to life it would of happened by now and bringing him back wouldn't make the plot that different unless Jazz turns out to be the chosen one or something.

The only ones that have come back from death were Optimus since he is Optimus and you can never kill space Jesus which cheapens his many deaths in the first place, Megatron because he is the main Decepticon and Sam because of plot reasons which was cheap but made sense in the story.

Point is when characters die in a "war" movie they should stay dead since you don't see people coming back to life in reality and it would make the death scenes pointless and make the audience care less.
