After a brief detour with 13 Hours: Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Michael Bay is currently playing in the Hasbro toy box once more with filming currently ongoing with Transformers: The Last Knight, due to hit screens next Summer. Over the last few months, little bits and pieces of information have trickled out and the first few pieces of information were to be expected. Of course, Optimus Prime and Megatron would once again be knocking the robotic tar out of each other, with the returning human contingent being filled out by Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, and, coming back after a one movie hiatus, Josh DuHamel and Tyrese Gibson, alongside newcomers Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock, and Anthony Hopkins. The usual Autobot faces are making an appearance, with Bumblebee, Hound, and Drift all making a return, with new faces including Squeeks, a new tousling machine that looks like the lovechild between Johnny Five »

The Transformers: The Last Knight shoot looks to have landed in London after various set images were posted online over the weekend. Sunday seems to be the day for making a movie in the capital as the streets are much quieter, and Michael Bay and co. look like they took advantage of that fact just yesterday as scenes were filmed near to Buckingham Palace in the centre of town.
No idea what they were filming, or where it will fit into the film, but Bumblebee, Hot Rod and Barricade were seen on the wet streets of London town, which actually continued on through into Piccadilly Circus and beyond.
The film stars Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager (who is in town to attend the UK premiere of Deepwater Horizon tonight), Josh Duhamel as Lieutenant Colonel Lennox, Tyrese Gibson as Robert Epps, and Stanley Tucci as Joshua Joyce. Michael Bay directs what »

Production continues on Transformers: The Last Knight in London, and today we have new photos of some Autobots rolling out in London. Autobots such as Bumblebee and Hot Rod are seen in these new photos, along with the Decepticon Barricade and human co-star Anthony Hopkins during new scenes that are being filmed this weekend near Buckingham Palace. No details about these scenes have been released thus far, but we also have a new video with director Michael Bay
The official Twitter for the franchise posted a new video featuring director Michael Bay, who reveals that they're shooting "in front of the Queen's house," which he doesn't think a lot of productions are allowed to do. The scene in question features the exotic Lamborghini that represents the Autobot Hot Rod is seen speeding up to the Buckinham Palace entrance, at 80 miles per hour. Hopefully we'll learn more about this shoot at Buckingham Palace soon. »
We already know that Michael Bay is throwing Merlin and Nazis into the mix for Transformers: The Last Knight, and now we can add the Dinobots to the list, with Mark Wahlberg revealing during a Facebook chat that Grimlock and company will be returning for the fifth instalment of the franchise, along with the new Mini-Dinobots.
“[Transformers: The Last Knight] is a cool new story, it’s kind of like a man on the run,” said Wahlberg, who is reprising his role as Cade Yeager from Transformers: Age of Extinction. “Sir Anthony Hopkins is also in the film. We got a cool new cast, cool new robots, cool new villains and some cool new Dinobots. I think you guys are really going to go crazy for the Mini-Dinobots.”
This confirms a report from back in June which suggested we’d be seeing some new Mini-Dinobots in the film, as well as offering up some character info and plot details, »

All signs point to Transformers: The Last Knight being absolutely bonkers. And that's saying something for a Michael Bay Transformers movie. But backlash over Nazi imagery used in a UK shoot has prompted the director to respond. The fifth installment of the franchise is looking like a it will include a time-travel adventure. While Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and Stanley Tucci are set to return, The Last Knight is also said to include King Arthur and Merlin and now...Nazis and Hitler. The Sun was first to report on the film's use of UK's Blenheim Palace covered with Nazi imagery. Blenheim was where Sir Winston Churchill, Prime Minister during World War II, was born. "Actors dressed as storm troopers from the Fuhrer’s feared SS strutted up the entrance steps," The Sun wrote. "Close by were a Panzer tank, a German anti-aircraft gun, Mercedes staff cars and ammo boxes stamped with eagle emblems. »

Transformers: The Last Knight caused some controversy this past week, with the production decorating Blenheim Palace – the birthplace of Winston Churchill – with Nazi swastikas to shoot scenes featuring German tanks and extras dressed as Nazi soldiers.
As you might expect this upset a few people, with some veterans expressing their disgust at what they felt was disrespectful to Churchill’s memory, and now director Michael Bay has now spoken to the BBC to defend the decision to convert Blenheim Palace into a “Nazi HQ”.
“I just want to say, people were not fortunate enough to read the script, and they don’t know that Churchill in this movie is a big hero,” said Bay. “And Churchill would be smiling about Last Knight. They haven’t seen the movie, they don’t know the ending, and they don’t know how Churchill is a hero in this movie. So, as the staff said, »

As if Merlin wasn't weird enough, Transformers: The Last Knight just got a whole lot more strange and potentially offensive. Thanks to some new set photos, it looks like Michael Bay has decided to include Nazis in the fifth Transformers movie. Not only are Nazis apparently going to be in the movie, but the production team decided that it was a good idea to make Winston Churchill's former home into Nazi headquarters, which is understandably ruffling some feathers.
The Sun broke the news that Transformers 5 was filming at the historic Blenheim Palace. The photos that the publication published with the report showed the birthplace of Winston Churchill draped in Nazi flags. The report also claimed that there were actors dressed in SS uniforms and World War II era vehicles around the premises. Outside of what this may mean for the movie, which we'll dig into in a second, »
It was “The Last Knight” versus a knight of the realm in Britain this week as the latest “Transformers” film sparked outrage for its use of Winston Churchill’s former home as a Nazi headquarters swathed in swastikas.
Images obtained by the Sun newspaper showed Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of the British prime minister who stood up to Hitler, draped with banners bearing the Nazi symbol. The newspaper reported that extras dressed as SS troops marched up the entrance steps of the palace Wednesday night, flanked by German vehicles and military equipment.
The move has roused the ire of British war veterans. Tony Hayes, head of the Veteran’s Association UK, told Variety that using Churchill’s home as the location for such a scene was particularly distressing.
“It’s a total disgrace. Blenheim is the ancestral home of our wartime leader,” said Hayes. “A lot of the older generation find it totally appalling. »

Not a fan of Michael Bay? You might be after watching this latest Transformers: The Last Knight featurette. The Director heard about a six-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier cross named Freya - who had been dubbed "Britain's loneliest dog" after spending 6 years in a shelter, and being rejected by 18,000 potential owners - and decided to give her a part in the movie. Freya (who you'll be pleased to hear has since been adopted by one of the crew members) plays Anthony Hopkins' character's pooch in the movie, and both can be seen together in the video below. As you can see, unless Uther Pendragon had access to a very modern wardrobe, Hopkins is playing someone else entirely. Transformers: The Last Knight also stars Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Stanley Tucci and John Goodman, and is set to hit theaters on June 23, 2017. »
Back in June of this year, Michael Bay announced that he’d cast Freya – dubbed ‘Britain’s Loneliest Dog’, due to being passed over for adoption after being visited 18,000 times in her rescue centre – in Transformers: The Last Knight.
Paramount Pictures has now released a featurette which highlight’s Freya’s “wags to riches” story and sees her filming alongside Anthony Hopkins on the Alnwick Castle set of the upcoming action sequel; check it out here…
Transformers: The Last Knight reunites Michael Bay with franchise veterans Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and Stanley Tucci, while new additions to the cast include Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School), Jerrod Carmichael (Bad Neighbours), Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy), Santiago Cabrera (Merlin), Liam Garrigan (Once Upon a Time), Mitch Pileggi (The X-Files) and Anthony Hopkins »

We know that Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight will crossover into medieval times, with part of this story involving the iconic characters King Arthur (Liam Garrigan) and Merlin (Santiago Cabrera), but there may be another magical connection to this sequel as well. New set photos recently surfaced featuring Mark Wahlberg and Anthony Hopkins in the U.K., shoot in a particular location connected to the Harry Potter franchise. While it seems unlikely that these two fantasy sries will crossover, it's possible this location could have something to do with the King Arthur and Merlin story.
The Daily Mail has these latest, which were taken in front of Alnwick Castle in Northumbria, UK yesterday. While the production was clearly for Transformers 5, hardcore Harry Potter fans know that Alnwick Castle was used in several exterior shots to represent Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter movies, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone »
Last week, we showed you new set photos from the London set of Transformers: The Last Knight, which offered our first look at Mark Wahlberg and Laura Haddock on the set, along with another glimpse at Bumblebee. Very little is known about what was actually being shot, but today we have even more photos of the vehicles featured in this sequel, directed by Michael Bay. We're not sure how long production will last in London for, or if we'll get a glimpse of some of the other cast members as filming continues.
We reported last week that Stanely Tucci will reprise his role as Joshua Joyce from Transformers: Age of Extinction. He won't be the only star returning from that movie, with Mark Wahlberg returning as Cade Yeager, along with stars from the original trilogy, Josh Duhamel as Lennox and Tyrese Gibson as Epps. The cast also includes a number »
The project was set up last October with Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen at their Temple Hill company along with Pouya Shahbazian after Fox had acquired movie rights to Becky Albertalli’s coming-of-age novel.
Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker have adapted the script which follows a 16-year-old closeted gay student who is dealing with his secret being exposed after one of his personal emails falls into the wrong hands. The novel was published last year by HarperCollins.
An early 2017 start date is being eyed.

As production on Transformers: The Last Knight has shifted from Detroit to the U.K., new photos have arrived giving us our first look at Mark Wahlberg and Laura Haddock on set. These latest behind-the-scenes images also give us a sneak peek at Bumblebee in action on the streets of London, along with a first glimpse at Hot Rod. For now, it appears that the country is safe from director Michael Bay's explosive ways, but we don't know what other scenes are being filmed here in the future.
Several Twitter users debuted these photos of Mark Wahlberg and Laura Haddock, who announced her own casting in Transformers: The Last Knight on Twitter a few weeks ago. At the time, Laura Haddock revealed her excitement to be working alongside one of her idols from the 80s, Optimus Prime, while poking fun at co-star Mark Wahlberg, stating he's a "pretty big deal" as well. »

Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight will feature quite the intriguing cast, with Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg returning as Cade Yeager, who will be joined by original Transformers trilogy stars Josh Duhamel as Lennox and Tyrese Gibson as Epps. While there is still much we don't know about the story, another cast member has been confirmed, with Stanley Tucci revealing he will be back as Joshua Joyce from Transformers: Age of Extinction. It isn't known if he has already filmed his role, but the actor confirmed the news during an appearance at the Deauville Film Festival in France over the weekend.
Variety reports that the actor confirmed his return in Deauville, which he attended to receive a career tribute award. His character Joshua Joyce is the head of Kinetic Solutions Incorporated, who was trying to create a series of man-made Transformers to defend America after the epic Battle of Chicago. »
Courtesy of insightful set photos unearthed by the BBC a fortnight ago, speculation surrounding Transformers: The Last Knight has been set firmly into overdrive ahead of the sequel’s arrival in 2017.
For instance, the casting of Liam Garrigan (24: Live Another Day) has all but confirmed The Last Knight‘s Arthurian undertones – rumor is that Optimus Prime will be on the hunt for an ancient artefact that could bring about the restoration of Cybertron – but Variety now has firm confirmation that Stanley Tucci will reprise the role of Joshua Joyce.
He’s not the only familiar face bound for Transformers: The Last Knight, after Michael Bay welcomed the return of both Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson from the original trilogy of blockbusters. Granted, Variety didn’t disclose how big a part Tucci’s anti-hero will hold once the robot-vs.-robot action kicks off, but we’ll likely learn more once »

During a trip to Deauville, France to attend his career tribute ceremony, Oscar-nominated actor Stanley Tucci revealed that he will be returning to the Transformers franchise for Michael Bay’s upcoming fifth installment, Transformers: The Last Knight.
In 2014’s much-maligned Transformers: Age of Extinction, Tucci played villain-turned-anti-hero Joshua Joyce. Joyce served as the CEO of Ksi (Kinetic Solutions Incorporated), a robot technology company devoted to building artificial Transformers. Despite his strict and business-like demeanour at work, Joyce proved to be a coward when faced with danger and at times was even a source of comic relief.
Quite a few actors who have previously stepped foot into the world of Autobots and Decepticons will be reprising their roles for 2017’s The Last Knight, including Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and Peter Cullen.
Tucci has certainly acquired a taste for big-budget blockbusters as of recent, considering how in addition to his role in the Transformers series, »

Over the weekend, Stanley Tucci was in Deauville, France where he was honored with a tribute celebrating his illustrious career, which has seen him earn an Academy Award-nomination, two Golden Globes, two Primetime Emmys, and much, much more. During the event, Tucci spoke on his upcoming commitments and revealed that he will in fact be reprising his role as Joshua Joyce, the head of Kinetic Solutions Incorporated, in Michael Bay's next blockbuster, Transformers: The Last Knight - which makes him the second cast member, after star Mark Wahlberg (Deepwater Horizon), to return from 2014's Age of Extinction. The ending of that film saw Tucci's character align with Wahlberg's Cade Yeager and the Autobots, so expect his story to pick up not long after. The human cast is headlined by Wahlberg, who's joined by original trilogy stars Josh Duhamel (11.22.63) & Tyrese Gibson (Fast 8) and a number of franchise newcomers, including »
Director Michael Bay has taken to Instagram to share a new set video from Transformers: The Last Knight, which sees him using the specially designed ‘Bayhem’ handheld Red Camera to shoot an action scene full of action and explosions. Take a look at the video here…
