Michael Bay Shows Off Behind-The-Scenes In Latest Transformers: The Last Knight Set Video

28 July 2016 2:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With just under a year until the latest in Michael Bay’s billion-dollar franchise hits cinema screens, you’d be forgiven for thinking that we know little about the movie. But, seeing as Bay rarely lets the sun go down without posting a new ‘first look’ pic, or a shakily-filmed piece of footage, we actually know a fair bit about Transformers: The Last Knight.

Through his social media accounts we’ve learned about the latest Decepticon joining the battle and a three-headed beastie that’s potentially one of Megatron’s minions. Now, thanks to this latest piece of sharable media posted to the official Transformers Facebook page, fans can get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what Bay’s movie sets are truly like:

As you can see from the video above, that ten-minute clip rolled out live last night providing a rather frank look at what it’s like to film a Baybuster. »

Michael Bay Takes Fans Behind The Scenes Of Transformers: The Last Knight With His Selfie Stick

28 July 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

More often than not, movie sets tend to be uncomfortable and hot (or cold). To make matters worse, you often spend most of your time sitting around waiting for someone else to do their job, but at the end of the day, it's all a part of the process of filmmaking. As such, there's definitely something magical about the whole process. You can take a rather dull, grimy set, and literally show it to the audiences through a different lens -- all in favor of the story you're trying to tell.

It's one of the reasons movie fans are so keen to learn every detail about the movies they love. They want to see what the experience was like while in process, and how it was transformed for audiences before their very eyes. Even if you're not a fan of the Transformers films, you have to admit there's some serious »

Michael Bay shares image of Onslaught from Transformers: The Last Knight

28 July 2016 8:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Michael Bay is returning to the Transformers franchise for a fifth time with Transformers: The Last Knight, and the director has been taking to Twitter to share images of his new cast. Today’s reveal? Onslaught.

Here’s Bay’s tweet:

Nothing can prepare you for Onslaught. #transformers Download hi-res photo: https://t.co/5ALFebRVeP pic.twitter.com/yMTck1i14c

Michael Bay (@michaelbay) July 27, 2016

And here’s the high-res image:

Onslaught is a name that will mean a lot to Transformers fans, as he was the villainous leader of Decepticon group the Combaticons, who would form together to make Bruticus. We’ve seen Bay use the Constructicons to make Devestator in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – will we see the Combaticons do something similar in Transformers: The Last Knight?

Onslaught Is The Latest Decepticon To Pull In For Transformers: The Last Knight

28 July 2016 7:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nothing can prepare you for the advent of Onslaught, the latest Decepticon to pull in for Transformers: The Last Knight.

Similar to the unveilings of Bumblebee and a revamped Barricade – an armored robot in disguise that appeared to bite the bullet back in the original movie – this first peek at a glimmering Onslaught arrives by way of Michael Bay’s Twitter account. It is, unsurprisingly, a striking image of the lime-green tow truck, which has the words ‘never back down’ scrawled onto its metal exterior.

Here’s a better look at the new Decepticon straight from the horse’s mouth, which is wallpaper worthy if you’re an ardent fan of all things Transformers.

Transformers 5 First Look at Decepticon Onslaught

27 July 2016 1:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Between director Michael Bay's personal website and the social media channels for Transformers: The Last Knight, there have been a slew of updates from the set, whether it be photos introducing new characters, or videos featuring new scenes being shot. Ever since filming started last month, Michael Bay has been sending out official photos of the new Autobots and Decepticons that will be featured in this sequel, and today we have another new vehicle reveal. The director gave us our first look at a new Decepticon known as Onslaught.

The photo debuted at MichaelBay.com, although the director wouldn't reveal any further details about this character. Fans of the original animated series may remember Onslaught as the leader of a group known as the Combaticons, who would all turn into the combined massive robot known as Bruticus. We don't know for sure if the Combaticons or Bruticus will be »

Transformers: The Last Knight: Michael Bay Reveals Onslaught

27 July 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Like it or not, the Autobots are returning in the fifth entry of Michael Bay and Paramount's Transformers series, subtitled The Last Knight. As of right now, specific details regarding the plot are unknown, but if the recent tweet from Bay is any indication, it sounds like the Combaticons will be involved this time around.

In the tweet, Bay showed a photo of a big rig that he pegged as the character of Onslaught.

The photo came with the following caption from Michael Bay: "Nothing can prepare you for Onslaught"

Admittedly, my Transformers knowledge only goes so far, but I do know that Onslaught is the name of the Combaticon (who are a unit of the Decepticons) leader who prefers to use his mind over sheer brute force. 

Beyond that, it's unknown what the reveal of this character means for the film. Earlier this year, it was revealed that »

Star Trek: was Cumberbatch supposed to be Gary Mitchell?

27 July 2016 7:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 28, 2016

Was Benedict Cumberbatch originally going to play a different villain in Star Trek Into Darkness? Ryan looks at the clues...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness.

It was among the worst-kept movie secrets of 2013: the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's villain in Star Trek Into Darkness. Long before the movie's release, speculation had swirled around the character's anonymous-sounding name: John Harrison. Clearly, fans realised, it was a cover for something far more dramatic.

Wasn't it more likely that Cumberbatch was actually lined up to play a recognisable character from the Star Trek canon? Some suggested Harrison might actually be Charlie Evans, the sinister teenage boy with psychic powers who terrorised the Enterprise in the second ever Original Series episode, Charlie X. Others suggested Cumberbatch might be taking on the role of Khan Noonien Singh, a character first introduced in series one's Space Seed. »

Gary Gygax Estate Partners With ‘Transformers’ Producer Tom DeSanto (Exclusive)

27 July 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Transformers” producer Tom DeSanto has struck a deal with the estate of Gary Gygax — co-creator of “Dungeons & Dragons” — to oversee the Gygax catalog of published and unpublished works.

The announcement was made on Wednesday, which would have been Gygax’s 78th birthday. His widow Gail Gygax reached a deal for DeSanto to become the “guardian of the library.”

DeSanto told Variety that he’s already discovered several potential “universe” projects among the unpublished works and expects to find a home for at least one by year’s end.

Gary Gygax is one of those names that belongs alongside George Lucas and Gene Roddenberry as storytellers whose influence reached around the globe and through generations,” he said. “I’m excited to work with Gail and honored to bring these new universes to the global audience in the way that Gary captured hearts and minds of the planet with ‘Dungeons & Dragons.' »

Check Out This 'Transformers: The Last Knight' Set Video!

21 July 2016 11:52 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's a reason why Transformers movies do so well at the box office. Yes, they pretty much fail on all story and character fronts, but more than anything, those films are built on spectacle. If you're in love with explosions, fluid and beautiful cinematography, and topnotch visual effects, these films are probably up your alley, if nothing else than to feel that rush of adrenaline from each action scene.

Of course, the man behind the camera, Michael Bay, is synonymous with explosions and crowd-pleasing action. Even if you thoroughly dislike every aspect of the Transformers movies, it's hard to argue against his mastery of the Hollywood spectacle. With that in mind, it's any visual effects junkie's dream to get a peek behind the scenes of such films, and the studio understands that fact. As such, they've taken to Facebook to post a behind-the-scenes look at a car chase and explosion »

Transformers: The Last Knight Set Video Showcases Paramount’s Robots In Disguise

20 July 2016 9:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Universal has a stranglehold on the tail-end of the week with Fast Fridays, Tuesdays are traditionally the day when Paramount’s Transformers franchise takes center stage on social platforms.

And sure enough, just yesterday the studio pumped out an all-new set video for Transformers: The Last Knight, Michael Bay’s 2017 blockbuster that represents a defining turning point in the franchise. That’s because, early on in development, Paramount formed a writers room with the sole intention of pumping new blood into its box office juggernaut, eventually mapping out plans for new sequels through 2019.

The Last Knight will get the ball rolling in June of next year, followed swiftly by a rumored Bumblebee spinoff in 2018 and a new, as-yet-untitled sequel the following year.

Star Trek: Insurrection - revisiting Star Trek 9

20 July 2016 8:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alex Carter Jul 27, 2016

From the highs of Star Trek: First Contact, why did Star Trek: Insurrection become the most forgotten Trek movie?

“Ok, ok, so First Contact was a major box office and critical success, but it would have been so much better had all those great space battles been replaced with Riker having a shave in the bath.”

Said someone, somewhere, presumably.

Star Trek: Insurrection was the great hope for the franchise. The lessons learned from past failures. No more interference from the studio. Just put the right people in the right place and let them do their thing. It worked for Khan, it worked for First Contact, so it should work for Insurrection. Right?

No.

Star Trek: Insurrection stands in the unusual position of being a film that would have benefited enormously from executive meddling. If one voice had spoken up and said “this film has problems”, perhaps »

Transformers 5 Set Video Shows Off Big Highway Explosion

19 July 2016 6:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Universal's Fast & Furious 8 started production earlier this summer, the sequel started a tradition known as Fast Fridays, where the filmmakers would share a special behind-the-scenes video that offers a glimpse at what scenes they shot that particular week. It seems Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight is starting a new tradition of their own dubbed Transformers Tuesday, where they will share a new video each week for Transformers 5.

This week's video, which debuted on the Transformers Facebook, reveals a scene that features a number of vehicles travelling down a highway, before a massive explosion takes out three of these SUV's, which are seen rolling end over end on this desolate stretch of road. This video also gives us brief glimpses of Michael Bay in action, setting up this explosive scene. We don't know where exactly in the movie this scene will take place quite yet, but hopefully we'll get »

Optimus Prime Battles A Three-Headed Beastie In Transformers: The Last Knight Banner

Paramount plans to dominate the box office next summer with its latest ‘bot outing Transformers: The Last Knight. Shooting is well underway on the sequel, which is supposedly director Michael Bay’s final turn behind the lens, and so far, everything we know about the blockbuster has stemmed from his social media.

If you’ve an ounce of knowledge about the franchise, you might know what to expect, though. It’ll feature two brigades of sparring robots and a bunch of humans unwillingly caught in the middle. By the looks of this latest marketing reveal, The Last Knight is also aiming to throw in some sort of triple-headed monster-thing.

Why I Wrote a Book About The Unheralded Genius in Michael Bay’s Films

14 July 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Fsr Illustration

About two years ago, I wrote a book on the films of Michael Bay. This unauthorized critical examination saw release in November 2014 under the title Michael F-ing Bay: The Unheralded Genius in Michael Bay’s Films. I knew I was throwing down a gauntlet with a provocative title like that and the reaction to that mere declaration. One troll kept loudly accusing me of writing the book so Michael Bay would hire me. He must have really liked this joke because he made it on several posts, across many websites that carried the announcement of my book. (The Broken Projector was one such outlet and I had a very interesting conversation with Scott Beggs about the book.) This suggested to me that not only did he have no understanding of how Hollywood worked, he almost certainly hadn’t read the book.

That question “Why would someone write a book about Michael Bay?” has »

New Times Square Billboard Reveals 'Transformers: The Last Knight' Tidbits

14 July 2016 6:44 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

At a time when many civilized film fans would love to see the Transformers franchise wind down, the Paramount Pictures production only seems to be getting bigger. With a storyline that involves outer space, possible time travel, and the incorporation of the legendary King Arthur mythos, as well as a cast that includes faces both new and old from the previous four entries, it's clear that Transformers: The Last Knight is brimming with ambition. 

A new super-sized poster in Times Square billboard gives us a good look at some of what's in store for us when Transformers: The Last Knight comes out next year:

A few things that jump out from this Transformers: The Last Knight billboard:

Transformers: The Last Knight surprise billboard on display in Times Square

14 July 2016 12:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In a rather surprise move, a billboard for Transformers: The Last Knight has popped up in New York City’s Times Square. The image features Optimus Prime engaging an unknown enemy. This is a surprise because the movie isn’t even a year out yet and filming is currently underway, though the image could give us a small hint at the film’s villain.

Though we don’t know what Optimus is fighting, it certainly looks like a rendition of the giant-sized planet eater Unicron. After Megatron, Unicron is the most recurring and ultimate villain in nearly iteration of the Transformers franchise, eating planets to turn into fuel for his massive body and seeking the destruction of the Autobot’s Matrix of Leadership. Tansformers: Age of Extinction ended with Optimus going in search of his ‘creators’ and Unicron is one of the oldest transformers to have ever existed, in some »

Transformers 5 Billboard Shows Optimus Prime Fighting a New Enemy

13 July 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Michael Bay is currently knee-deep in production on the fifth installment of the Transformers franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight. The movie isn't due out until next summer, but Bay has been very active on social media, sharing set photos, videos and even a brand new Transformer named Squeeks. But now it looks like the marketing campaign for the movie has officially kicked off, as the first billboard for Transformers: The Last Knight has surfaced.

The Transformers fan site Seibertron got wind of the new billboard in Times Square in New York City, and posted some pictures to their site and their social media channels. Paramount just recently put up the massive billboard for the movie on 47th Street in Midtown Manhattan. It prominently features Optimus Prime wielding his sword, facing off against what looks to either be a single robot with three heads, or three different robots with the same head. »
