Starting the week with a bang (as with most Michael Bay productions), we have a bit of a round-up of more Transformers: The Last Knight news from the past week or so that may have been missed between Stonehenge and Wahlberg interviews! Proceeding with order...

Between Tyrese Gibson, returning for the fifth movie, on Instagram and Mark Wahlberg on his own Twitter account, we have confirmation that the London portion of the filming is coming to an end, according to schedule - and they had a brief stop in Paris too.

Isabela Moner is clearly enjoying shooting this movie way too much, almost as much as the social media team who convinced Anthony Hopkins to play around with camera filters. I am not sure how to take this. It's mesmerizing.

@isabelamoner's new BFF on set. #regram #transformers

Emma Lambert, a fellow Transformers fan, was able to visit the set in London during filming, and has provided extensive coverage on her Twitter and Instagram feeds of the various vehicles for Hot Rod, Barricade, Bumblebee and the red MacLaren doing vehicle things, and a confirmation of the name of the Transformers Reaction Force (the one with the lambda/triangle symbol we've been seeing for a while).

Another fan, Arun09345, has been following the filming too, and kept their Instagram feed updated with images and clips of cameras being used on the Thames, and some Tower Bridge scenes from London, plus a slightly spoilery scene run-through for something big emerging from the river. Check them out below!

OK, that's kinda dumb. I was never a big fan of the whole Omega Lock thing.

This is, what, the fifth Cybertronian artifact to appear on our planet (and moon). Sure, they always have an explanation, but are we some sort of magnet for lost Cybertronian technology?

No, Optimus, you can't call your team the Reaction force! The fine bros will sue you!

Fourth. The Seed for AOE was a Cybertronian (kinda) relic that Lockdown sold to the humans in exchange for helping hunt down OP. But that is a good point. In TF:Prime, they actually had a good reason for all the relic appearing on Earth. Movieverse, while I find them more enjoyable than most do, doesn't actually have a reason why except coincidence.

This being a TF film, the whole omega lock story will be as important as the tomb of the primes nonsense of the second one. Any plot and mythology will be quickly overlooked for more action and Mark Walhberg running. So I really dont think any of that matters. Does anyone here really watch these movies for its mythological world building aspect?

HAHAHAHA! No. :P

The Bay TF films are an action film power house meant to appeal to general film-going audiences if anything, but does call outs to appease the fans too simultaneously. That doesn't make the films entirely crap or devoid of merit though, they can be enjoyed as they are.

This is true, at least with me, I consider the films decent action flicks overall. So I enjoy them as action films and not specifically TF films. I have enjoyed some of the things they've used from G1 and modified to be less-cartoon like and more "edgier" for an action film. I appreciate those callouts and marriage of ideas between continuities. The Bay TF films aren't as epic as something like Lord of the Rings and Star Wars though and comparing them will always have one winding up short. You really can't compare the two here with what Bay does and his angle with it all. He's not a cerebral-story type of person, and that is painfully obvious because of the gratuitous explosions and lens flare. So, he's an action guy, and that's what these films are more or less - action films. The humor in the TF films is also a lot more juvenile, which isn't exactly bad, but not great, except maybe RotF Devastator's scrotum. That was pretty bad. :P My personal preference is for the TF films to go to a more cerebral route and thought provoking deal, but that will probably not happen for a while if at all ever.

My dream movie idea that will likely never get made: TF novel "Exodus" and IDW Megatron Origin modified considerably to be into a film and dealing with the build up of Optimus and Megatron and their respective rises to prominence and power.

I can't believe they're even letting those weak firework things off near the stone monuments. I thought pretty much nothing was allowed to happen around the actual stones.

And so, it looks like the principal shooting for Paramount's latest project with Michael Bay, Transformers: The Last Knight, has ended its main shooting for at least the main human cast - though it looks like there may be some additional days for other aspects, all according to the original plan for ending on 15th October. Both the movie's official social media and cast member Isabela Moner have celebrated the event by posting images and thanks on their feeds - check out a couple below, featuring the cars in London and the humans Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock and Josh Duhamel!

^That will only be in the Novelization however, they don't have time to go into such details in the film itself. ;)

They don't have time to say "my daughter's away studying and her boyfriend went with her"? Just on line?

Then again, they didn't have enough time last movie to say Drift's name...
