Ahead of the movie’s release next month, a pair of new videos–a clip and a TV spot–for Transformers: The Last Knight have arrived. The TV spot is quite silly, showing Optimus Prime not having such a good time with a dialogue coach who is trying to teach him a British accent.
The new clip, which you can see here at The Hollywood Reporter, has a lighthearted tone as well. It shows Mark Wahlberg’s Cade Yeager and the new character played by Anthony Hopkins, Sir Edmund Burton, having a conversation about the Transformers. “You want to know, don’t you, dude? Why they keep coming here, to Earth?” Burton says to Yeager.
The Last Knight is the fifth installment in the core Transformers series that began a decade ago with Transformers and the first since 2014’s Age of Extinction.
Previewing some footage of The Last Knight at CinemaCon in March, director Michael Bay said, “This is not a number five. This feels like a brand new, fresh look into the Transformers,” according to THR.
A “Transformers Cinematic Universe” is apparently being planned, with spinoffs and prequels in the works.
The Last Knight, which opens on June 23, also stars Isabela Moner, Josh Duhamel, Stanley Tucci, and John Goodman. The series may be continuing after it, but Bay has said it’s his last movie in the series.
