Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian SlyTF1, we have from Movie Ticket seller Fandango seeming confirmation of the runtime for the latest Michael Bay Transformers movie, The Last Knight. The website's listing for the movie shows the runtime to be 2 Hours and 28 Minutes - a drop from Age of Extinction's 2 Hours 45 minutes and something we can seemingly trust as this is an official channel rather than a site like IMBD anyone can contribute to. Tell us in the the forums if this encourages or discourages you to see the fifth instalment in the series!

Which is way too damn short for me. I've always said that any movie that isn't at LEAST 2 hours and 30 minutes long is complete trash. I've watched a lot of movies, and it always disappoints me when they feel shorter than that.

But both the first movie and ROTF were under 2h30m and I thought you liked all the Bay movies? :???:

But I consider DOTM and AOE to far superior to the first 2. Especially AOE.

I'm ok with this. The 3D showing is late afternoon and if it runs much longer I might miss the last bus home back to my lil town (yeah the public transport is not great).

Two and half hours sounds like plenty TF fun for me while not leaving me stranded. :D

Well of course DOTM is the best "movie" in the franchise although it might not be the best "Transformers movie" for some.

Many of AOE's bits and flaws makes it the worse but is balanced out by the decent robot screen time even if their reduced to one liners mostly in a way it's almost the mirror of ROTF.


(Remember all of this is in my very own not so unique humble opinion)

For me the first one is still the best. There's still quite a number of problems - the lack of Sam's parents in future instalments is by far the greatest decision this series has ever made - but I found it a decent fun Summer popcorn-muncher for what it was. A not-overly complex story, a small contained Transforming cast which had simple understandable character traits and colour coding; and we still had actual human cannibal Shia LaBeouf. Nothing great but not something I'd hate to watch again.

Not sure which is my fave. First one had the biggest impact cos it was first time I finally saw the kind of Transformers I'd wanted to see since I was a kid. And it was probably the only time I can think of that I actually had a movie date. But yeah it also fully dragged me back into the TF world with it's toyline (Classics had caught my attention a bit and i had bought a few of those figures but it really was the movieverse that hooked me again). I think the one I've watched least is Revenge of the Fallen but even then I don't dislike it at all. It's got great action scenes including that classic forest fight and I really liked Jetfire. Dark of the Moon might possibly be my fave but I really loved Age of Extinction too. Oh I don't have to choose. I own all four on blu ray and I can't wait to watch this new one.

The first one is good as well so it comes as second fave for me.

I miss Jazz but I understand why he died since it would seem rather one sided if only Decepticons died but I would of brought in one or two Autobots like Longarm and some other b tier dude like Windcharger or Swerve to bite it and I probably would have added in Wreckage to fill out the final battle since Bonecursher and Frenzy were killed before the battle and Scorponok and Barricade disappeared and I also would have put in one scene of the Decepticons meeting to establish them as characters with English dialogue.

That would of made Jazz stick around for at least the original trilogy of movies although he probably would of bit it instead of Ironhide when Sentinel betrayed them but I hope Jazz appears in a prequel like the Bee movie to make up for his lack of time.

Well, CGI models cost a lot; and since this was before the series as a movie franchise was known to utterly annihilate the box office... extra characters like that likely wouldn't have made the budget.

The first has always been my least favorite, simply because the Cybertronians barely got any screentime. That, and I despise the teenage drama crap in the first half more than anything else in the entire franchise. Also, the whole scene with Sam looking for the glasses in his house is one of the most boring stretches of film I've seen in my entire life. I hate that whole Sector 7 sequence before Optimus shows up.

There were flaws yes but the first movie was a decent film overall in fact I feel like it only started to go down right after the Bonecusher and Frenzy fight since the final battle in that movie was bit of a cluster although it had some good moments like Jazz, Ironhide and Ratchet vs Brawl, Starscream vs Ironhide and Ratchet and Starscream's clever attack on the F-22's.

I do like how each of the cons were a threat in their own right although they could of used a scene like Rotf's Nemesis meeting and DOTM's Africa group thing which actually should have had Shockwave in that scene as well.

Well... Maybe just Longarm then because look at him dude he's the one Transformers design that just hits all of my aesthetic favorites him and ROTF Breakaway who I also wished were in the movies.

Even Stephan Spielberg wished he was in the movie! http://badflipblog.blogspot.ca/2009/10/tf1-tow-truck-drone-02.html

Weird cos I had both the Longarm and Breakaway toys but I didn't care for them much at all. Just had them at the time to boost the collection (and cos they were in the video games) way before I started culling things down due to space, money and other reasons. I did think Landmine was a pretty cool non-movie movie toy though.

Ah no the Breakaway toy is meh but the character himself looks great in the game and the concept art especially his baby face.

Video game Longarm is ok but his toy version is pretty great especially once you unscrew the gun off his hand so he can put it down.

Reno Wilson confirms that he is returning for The Last Knight!

He could be voicing Brains since as far as we know he is still alive and Wheelie is in the movie but he could always voice a new character like he did every film before AOE.

Rumors that are potentially true below which is semi relevant and also spoiler-ish but nothing major like deaths or plot.
I heard rumors from a "person" that Brains is mentioned in the film as well as Sideswipe but in what context I do not know, this guy apparently saw around 40 minutes of the film in a screening he did say that Bumblebee's voice was temporarily changed into a female as a "joke" a few days before the spot that we saw came on which he was right about since Bee spoke with Siri's voice, he also says that there is an Autobot from DOTM in Cuba with Simmons and plays soccer with him

A couple of news pieces regarding Transformers: The Last Knight have surfaced from a number of sources! First up, voice actor Reno Wilson - the voice of Frenzy, Mudflap, and Brains from previous movies - has been confirmed as returning to the fifth movie, in a yet undisclosed role.

Image


Next, we have news of the Japanese dubbing for the movie - The Last Knight King, in translation - featuring Hanako Sakurai as Izabella (Isabela Moner's character), meaning that US production on the movie is indeed complete, and international distributors are working on their versions as I type.

Image


And finally, keeping with humans, we have four new portraits from vk.transformers for the Earth side of the cast from the movie: Mark Wahlberg / Cade Yeager, Isabela Moner / Izabella, Laura Haddock / Vivian Wembly, Anthony Hopkins / Sir Edmund Burton. But also a couple profiles for Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, so you can now create your own photoshopped movie poster! Check them out below.

I've never been one for paintings and art and all that, but throw in an Autobot and you've got my interest.

(Should be the third one down)

Long story short, Ironhide gets placed in an 1815 painting in an art museum. Hilarity ensues.
