Thanks to an Entertainment Weekly article, we have news that Steve Jablonsky has uploaded a full song for our enjoyment that is featured in Transformers: The Last Knight! Jablonsky, who has worked extensively with the music for the movies, created something new and special for the latest movie when he had to make some music for a medieval scene where the knights of the round table fight off barbarians. This new piece excited Jablonsky, and he allowed Entertainment Weekly to show off his song in their article! You can listen to the piece, titled "Merlin's Staff," by following the above link, and you can check some of his interview with Entertainment Weekly below!

Steve Jablonsky has written music for every one of Michael Bay’s Transformers films. But for the fifth installment, Transformers: The Last Knight, the composer had to take things back — way back — to Medieval times.

.....

“I met with Michael before he started shooting Transformers: The Last Knight,” Jablonsky said in a press release. “He showed me some amazing concept art and explained how the story connects the history of Transformers all the way back to the times of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. I loved the idea because it gave me the opportunity to explore new musical ideas…

My wife and I just got back from seeing the movie. I have been disappointed by every live action ablution beside the first one, which was cool as a live action realization of the Transformers but plotless and boring otherwise.
I went in to this one with the lowest of expectations. I expected to see moving images and hear loud noises for two and a half hours. And I was still incredibly disappointed by this movie. I know there's a word filter that will block swear words, so there isn't a way I can express my feelings about this film. But this, like the last three movies, is a bad, bad, nonsensical and stupid movie.

I'm calling Bull since everyone believes Bay's the god damn devil.

Why do people expect more out of transforming robot action movie Transformers as an idea will never be good only entertaining just like how every cartoon has been objectively bad but entertaining even if Bay and every other person left the film or if Disney made them they would still be the same!

It god damn bombed and with the lackluster mostly unknown Rid cartoon and the dwindling comic sales this franchise is going to crash and burn and end just like GI Joe and every other "franchise" Hasbro has made into films.


And people think the Star Wars films are "good" instead of just simply entertaining.



I think people expect a good movie. Not Citizen Kane, but a decent movie. That's not too lofty or unreasonable of an expectation. And, it's not impossible for TF fiction to be quality. The movies are just bad.

As long as objectively good quality Transformers stories like "Code of Hero" exist, this argument will never ever be true.

I don't know man I just got back from the movie expecting a trash heap and I'm surprised to say...I enjoyed the whole movie besides three nitpicks!

The fact that Cogman's headmaster scenes were cut. (As well as many scenes from filming that are just gone like at least 20 minutes of it)

Topspin randomly having Leadfoot's head (Still enjoy the confirmation he is alive regardless)

That random Contructicon Autobot at the junkyard who is there for 10 seconds before never showing up again ( Did not hate it but I'm just confused on what the point of him was)


But honestly am I crazy, everyone else is, or do I just have a terrible sense of taste?

One offs that can't be repeated especially not in movie format unless the cast is incredibly small and has only one or two main characters as opposed to... well most Transformers media.

We have never gotten another Code of Hero or Last stand of the Wreckers even when people have attempted to (Hi Sins of the Wreckers as enjoyable as you were you were also disappointing)

Just came back from watching it. it wasnt good. So little time spent on bot on bot action they might as well not be in the film. Its just humans running away from explosions and trying to get a stick for 2.5 hours.

At least now i know Berserker was indeed in the film.

Spoilers, man! This is the spoiler-free thread.

I was responding to your claim of "since no Transformers fiction has ever been objective good, the films shouldn't be either."[/paraphrasing]

What spoilers?

The only thing I can think of is nitpick number two and it had nothing to do with spoilers.

Nitpick number 1 wasn't in the movie and neither were things in the trailers.

Nitpick number 3 was about some completely pointless and unsignificant thing in the background in the first 30 minutes that had nothing to do with anything before or afterwards like honestly that's not a spoiler.

Edit: I went and spoil marked it anyways.

It's not any of those things, man. You enjoyed the movie, and that's all that matters. You're not going to be the only person who enjoyed it, and I won't be the only person who didn't. I'm glad you enjoyed it; and frankly, I think most of the people who dislike the movies are glad for the people who do enjoy them. We just disagree on the quality of them, but don't think the other side is bad for their opinions. Most of us: there are people who take it much more seriously than they should on both sides.

Am back after a week now I've seen the film so not scared of spoilers.

I f***ing loved it. Have had a rough week so needed something to cheer me up and I was smiling through almost the entire movie. Loved the new guys like Cogman and Hot Rod and Sqweeks, I liked the new human characters, found the reveal about Earth quite similar to an idea I had back during the Marvel comic days and was so damn happy with the gorgeous robot scenes and beautiful views throughout. Yeah I won't say it's perfect but I had so much more fun with this movie than many other supposedly good blockbusters in recent times (that's aimed at The Godawful Force Awakens and pretty much any MCU/DCEU film, haven't seen Wonder Woman yet). Even though I was in the small screen room (as I was seeing it very early in the day) the rest of the audience cheered and laughed at appropiate bits. One kid yelled YAY at the first appearance of Bee. I yayed at the first appearance of Megatron. Dunno why I did that, maybe cos i love the voyager toy so much it was glad to see the character in action and he was awesome.

Am very eager for the Blu Ray so I can pause and examine the robots some more. I'e only really enjoyed a couple new movies in the past couple years. This is one and Logan was the other. Yeah there's somethings I found a bit flawed but on the whole this movie really cheered me up and I'm keen to see it again really soon.

And seriously I want some mini-Dinobots. And Sqweeks. Not toys. The actual robots. Also why aren't all the toys available now? I really wanted to buy Hot Rod and Cogman and Nitro and Skullitron when I left the cinema but not even wave 2 stuff is available around here.

To those who don't like it, that's cool and you got all those animated shows and IDW comics I reeeeally don't like so we're all good.



Oh and I have a small task for you lot. Since Deluxe Hot Rod has no gun, which of the many TF guns over the years would work best for him and look like his rather cool time-slowy-down gun from the film?

Thanks to our friends at Paramount, Seibertron.com was allowed press access to the US Premiere of the Transformers The Last Knight. The red carpet event took place alongside the Chicago Riverfront alongside the famed Civic Opera House in downtown Chicago, IL. My wife and I were there alongside the rest of the press covering the event. We had two cameras and a couple of cell phones to help us provide as much exclusive content for Seibertron.com as we possibly could. One of our cameras was setup for video and the other for photos. For now, we just have the photos posted of the event and are currently editing the video footage to share with all of you later.

Ryan Yzquierdo with Producer Tom DeSanto at the Last Knight's after party event. He and I had a great conversation and he completely won me over after he talked to me about Professor X, Magneto, Optimus, Megatron, being a fan in the 80s, the Marvel TF comics, and so on. Even got to talk to him about Jon Bailey's amazing Optimus Prime voice! Tom completely convinced me that he truly is a fan of these properties after talking X-Men and Transformers with me for about 10 minutes.

The US Premiere was an absolutely amazing experience, especially for a long time Transformers fan like myself. It was very cool that Paramount let Seibertron.com onto the red carpet alongside regular press such as WGN, ABC, Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight, MTV and Univision (to name a few). I wasn't quite prepared to be given access to all of the stars like that, nor had I been on the red carpet of a movie premiere before. It was a massive learning experience and we were figuring things out on the fly!

We got to have some brief one-on-one time with Michael Bay, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Jerrod Carmichael, Isabela Moner, Santiago Cabrera, Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Remi Adeleke, Juliocesar Chavez, and Tom DeSanto. Unfortunately, due to time constraints at the rushed end of the event, we didn't get to talk to Mark Wahlberg or Laura Haddock but we still managed to get some great pics to share with all of you! All of the stars were very nice and happy to talk to everyone. I was very surprised that they had all of the stars talk to any of the press that wanted to talk to them. I figured we would only be allowed to speak to select stars and didn't think that I'd be getting to shake hands with the likes of Sir Anthony Hopkins!

After the screening of the film, which most of the press did not attend, we headed over to the after party at the Prysm Nightclub. We arrived a little late to the party, which was in full swing, due to seeing the movie. I think Josh Duhamel was one of the few stars that stayed for the film, who was saw briefly the film's showing prior to us leaving for the after party. We only saw Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Tom DeSanto, Michael Bay, Juliocesar Chavez, Isabela Moner, and the Hasbro Transformers Brand Team at the event though there seemed to be a lot of "big wigs", or something to that effect, along with other Hollywood like people in the packed nightclub, which was closed to the public for the private event (though the club is actually closed on Tuesdays anyway, which I'm assuming is part of the reason why they would choose this club for the evenet). I'm also assuming that a lot of the people that were at the after party were a lot of the "behind-the-scenes" folks that do not get enough recognition for their hard work on these films, such as the writers, artists, costume people, prop people, set designers, etc. It was a lot of fun and the party wrapped up around 2:30am.

I'll share some more thoughts in the topic on our forums. We are still working on putting together a video to share with all of you from our footage of the event.

Thank you again to Paramount for this amazing opportunity. We had a spectacular time! It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime day-to-remember event.

I hope all of you enjoy these pictures!

Well yes and I'm surprised he "survived" only due to the fact he never got out of jail when I thought he was only a minor Con much less important and was going to get the treatment that well all the other cons besides Megatron, Barricade and Nitro did but hey maybe he shows up in the next film.

Doesn't explain why he's more of a focus for toys then say Mohawk, Dreadbot or Onslaught who were (technically) in the film for longer then him and they had more changes to their designs or in the case of Mohawk his very own while Berserker is just a straight up repaint or why his alt mode was briefly on set.

Actual movie spoilers With how much all the Decepticons were spotted in vehicle mode during filming you would think they would be in the movie for longer especially after that intro then again like over half the scenes that they were filmed in never made it to the movie for example there was a scene filmed where the Decepticons and the Autobots were charging towards each other in alt mode and it looked pretty cool so that sucks

We never do see Optimus Transform into his alt mode though. Kinda crazy how he is the one bot you dont see transforming in this film. Its usually a big deal when that happens.

Our own epic voice and all around awesome Seibertronian Jon 3.0 (better known as John Bailey) has taken part of a once in a lifetime experience at a Transformers The Last Knight event at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA. High profile media outlets, including John, were invited to try out exotic car racing in the spirit of the high performance cars one may find in these films. While the cars were not of makes or cars found in the film, they all had Transformers: the last Knight logos on them. The ones John got to drive were the Lamborghini Gallardo and Ferrari F430.

You can see the videos below, enjoy!

Yeah that now that I think about it was also a (minor) nitpick but I understand why he did not considering his location in this movie not really giving him a decent place to drive.

Mlive.com has written an article on how the filming of The Last Knight has helped the local economy in Michigan. Some of the scenes were filmed at the old Paccard Plant in Detroit and the now abandoned Pontiac Silverdome (The former stadium of the Detroit Lions). Filming in these locations has brought revenue in the form of rentals, transportation, custom props, catering and other supplies sold in Michigan.

Well,he was in alt-mode briefly, but his transformation was behind the smoke.
