The Final Trailer For TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT Swells With Blockbuster Promise


It almost feels like a shoe-in, really. Transformers: The Last Knight will open theatrically on June 21 and as the likely franchise exit of director Michael Bay nears, the promotional campaign needs little to no help in its viral marketing campaign on top of having such a staunch arsenal of trailers to boot.

This includes the final trailer which over the weekend and you can view that one in the Twitter embed below. Bearing this in mind, from an artistic and filmmaking standpoint though, a lot remains to be seen even if this one sees enough box office earnings to beat the $1+ billion dollar milestone of its predecessor.

The films have definitely covered a lot of ground in serving the necessary blockbuster spectacle, and often at the risk of stumbling over itself in the writing with characters that have come and gone. It does beg asking why we should care about all these characters even despite the peril and respective motivations, and indeed, the new film now has more characters in the midst.

For this, we now have a film that is supposed to finally weave everything together, which is especially important now that we have a Bumblebee spin-off approaching that has Hailee Steinfeld poised to make her own entry into the franchise if all works out. Frankly, I don't really think this franchise has anything to worry about because a lot of moviegoers are simplistic in their need for something amazing to watch in theaters regardless of most other factors that go into film.

Alas, the final trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight is here and doling out plenty to sample; Big robots, explosive battles, flashbacks, more crumbling structures, and more Wahlberg, Dumahel and Sir Hopkins for good measure, and for the rest...well, your guess is as good as mine. Things are only getting bigger and the trailer is a sure sign of it. Peep it.
