While we're still letting the flavour of the teaser trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight settle, and opinions are being formed, we have another sidelook at a corollary piece of news from the footage shown. First of all, here's the trailer again, in High Definition:



You see that stadium, that destroyed, mangled, contorted piece of metal and field and concrete? Let me show you closer, with a screencap from our gallery (which you can find here):

Transformers News: The Stadium in Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer: Pontiac Silverdome


As the local Detroit and Michigan press have also noticed, and are buzzing about, that is none other than old NFL Detroit Lions football stadium, the Pontiac Silverdome! Opened in 1975, home to the Lions until 2001 and host for a number of events, from WrestleMania to FIFA cups, to SuperBowls to NBA matches; it closed down, permanently, in 2014, and is still waiting to find new tenants. Must be nice for the stadium and the area to feature in the latest Paramount production, if anything, even if ravaged by Cybertronian battles - check it out in its former glory and current state below!

After all this time, and how bad AoE was, I admit, I'm in the same boat as you Dude.

Are you saying this second trilogy started with Age of Extinction or is starting with The Last Knight?

Sabrblade, where did you get that Lennox and Cade are on opposing sides? Is it from something official or conjecture?

Oh for sure. I know that this franchise has been around for so long now that G1 ain't the big thing everyone grew up with. People have now grown up with Beast Wars or RiD (original), the Unicron trilogy and indeed, the movies. Hell, I might not feel the movies but they get fresh blood into the fandom. Never a bad thing.

Honestly the Bay TF films are decent enough action flicks, as for being decent enough TF flicks I can only hope they improve. That said, I liked the trailer and am excited for the film. I can only hope Megatron does not disappoint. Also, random musings and speculation: Was that...Unicron? It looks like Unicron. Optimus with purple eyes? Wonder if that has something to do with Unicron and Dark Energon getting thrown in the mix here. Also, please make Megatron kick some butt again.

Previous news reports mentioned something about Cade and Lennox initially being on opposite sides in the movie.

My understanding of this movie is that it is a sequel, essentially, to AoE. THreads that started in that movie continue in this one. That's unique in this series. Pretty much all three of the early trilogy are stand alone films.

Soooo...Unicron's in it! I wonder how much it took to convince Bay to finally put him in the movie? also looked like either a Unicron created Prime(Nemesis Prime) or the genuine article being controlled by Uni himself! looks like this version of Unicron will prob be destroyed by the Omega Lock(Stonehenge) rather than the matrix! big questions are...who's doing the voice of Unicron & will it sound like him? also will he have a robot mode? & what will the toy be like? & what class size?

OK, I was just confused by which movie you were referring to as the penultimate film. If the trilogy starts with Age of Extinction then the penultimate film is The Last Knight.
