Seibertronians, it looks like Sir Anthony Hopkins, legendary actor and member of the Transformers 5 cast, has released a statement praising Michael Bay and the Transformers filming experience. In a video posted on the Transformers 5 Facebook page (available embeddee below), he calls it

...one of the best experiences (he's) had on a film...since Speilberg

and

Directors like...Bay...just say "Let's do it". I love that, because I'm like that


Good words like these are crucial, as the production has been swamped in controversy recently, with the disputed choice of draping Nazi flags on the birthplace of Winston Churchill. Watch the video below and tell us in the comments what you think! What character is Hopkins playing? King Aurthur? Merlin? Winston Churchill? What do you think of his final comments about how he'll be back? what do you think he'll reveal?

And, as always, keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com!

Seibertronians, it seems the Anthony Hopkins story was not the only piece of TF5 news today. Apparently the Last Knight cars made a return to London recently to take part in a small photoshoot and cruise through the Buckingham Palace grounds with a full motorcade! Check out some of the images and a video posted to the Transformers Movie Instagram below, but then see a full gallery on Comingsoon.net!

Oh! I know how they'll make Churchill a hero in this movie! He'll be the one whose able to pull the sword from the stone and defeat the Nazis with Excalibur! In this movie, King Arthur will defeat Hitler because it will be revealed that Churchill is King Arthur!


I'm scared they might actually do this.

I don't think they are actually allowed in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, that's just The Mall. Johnny English did that on a wheelchair :)

My point was that I believe they closed the mall down so they could drive through. ;)^

Oh, wait, I see what you're saying. They aren't the grounds to Buckingham Palace itself. Gotcha. Yeah, I knew that. Sorry, I misread your comment. I thought you were saying how it wasn't special they were driving through. I'll clairify in the story.


EDIT: Story changed! Thanks for pointing that out. Should have been more specific.

It would be sweet if it actually was an homage to Cybertron Override, as long as she still had some resemblance in robot mode.

As with every Tuesday, the official Transformers Facebook page has shared a new clip from the live action movie universe, and it's directly from The Last Knight set that we get a new look at one of the behind the scenes machines that director Michael Bay is very keen on: the Baybuster, a stunt creating vehiclewe have heard about before. Check out the clip below!

In other live action Transformers movie news, we have word from music composer Steve Jablonsky himself on Twitter, that he may indeed be back for the fifth time running, at least for the main score theme for The Last Knight! Check out the image he sent below, in which a folder with TF5 Themes Ideas is shown, and discuss the news in the Energon Pub.

I don't mind Jablonsky's music in the films. I actually like it for the most part, and it suits the films well enough I feel. So I hope he continues to do good with it as well continue to do the film's music composing.

Awesome, I love the scores he's done

Jablonsky's scores have always been amazing, particularly arrival to earth, Bumblebee, and Autobots reunite. I'd be really disappointed if he didn't return xD

That would be awesome. If we got to see some Combiner rip big ben out of the ground and hit another bot with it, we'll of checked off everything that needs to happen in a Transformers movie in Britain.

The Bayformer films may not be as good as they used to be, but Steve's scores are one of the best parts of them, and I'm glad he's still returning.

To be honest, Jablonsky is very creative with his music scores. There is no telling what euphonic masterpiece he has to offer.

Via the UK branch of the Metro newspaper (or at least its online incarnation) we have a new interview with Transformers: The Last Knight cast member Mark Wahlberg, who plays the returning Cade Yeager, and drops hints as to what we might expect in the fifth Michael Bay movie with the Cybertronians - from the recent Nazi set dressing controversy to the rumoured mini-dinobots, to Anthony Hopkins' involvement. Check it out in the embedded clip below!

Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk, Mark admitted that by announcing there would be mini-dinobots in the upcoming sequel he had ‘already revealed too much’ but that fans should also expect ‘a few other surprises’.

The film currently has confirmed autobots, decepticons, mini-dinobots, King Arthur, Nazis – and Sir Anthony Hopkins.

The production art for the last movie had those Raptors in it (What Slash is based upon) so I would say it's seems quite possible the mini-Dinobots Mark describes are those Raptors.

Though I guess they could have expanded the idea and come up with some other sorts of smaller scale Dinobots too.
