Star Laura Haddock also revealed a little bit information about the Autobot, who has been serving as her protector under the guise of her father’s old 1963 Citroën DS, as well discussing her character Viviane Wembly’s relationship with her father (Anthony Hopkins) following the revelation:

“It’s a rickety old thing, but she can’t part with it because she adores it,” Haddock says of the vintage vehicle. “This car has actually been put there to watch her and feedback information to Anthony Hopkins’s character about what she’s up to and her life. So yeah, she gets kind of taken [by surprise] in a really funny, dramatic way by this Hot Rod. »

12 April 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Michael Bay and Paramount have just released a new trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight. Bay has previously said that this film will link together all the mythology from the series and will also be his last Transformers film (though he said the same thing about Dark of the Moon and Age of Extinction and has since expressed interest in directing one of the 14 Transformers stories the writer’s room came up with). Watch the trailer and check out our exclusive interviews with Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael below…

Anthony Hopkins calls Michael Bay a “genius,” likens him to Steven Spielberg

9 April 2017 3:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When talking about the most brilliant filmmakers of our time, you’d be hard-pressed to find yourself in a conversation where Michael Bay’s name makes an appearance: unless you’re talking to Sir Anthony Hopkins, of course.

During a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies about the upcoming fifth installment in Bay’s Transformers film franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight (which marks the first collaboration between Hopkins and Bay), Hopkins had nothing but praise for the much-talked-about, little-respected director.

The actor said, “[Bay] was telling me about the work he did on [the Transformers bots] – how he would refine them and go into the special effects guys and design them and get all the details of light on metal and all that. He told me all that at breakfast before I started on the film. I thought ‘This guy’s a genius. He really is.’ He’s the same ilk as Oliver Stone and Spielberg and Scorsese. »

Paramount has 14 more Transformers stories written, Michael Bay interested in directing one

5 April 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

No matter how bad the critical reception dips there is no arguing that the Transformers movies are anything but hugely successful at the box office.

That trend will likely continue this summer with the release of Transformers: The Last Knight, before Paramount Pictures extends the franchise with the fruits of its Transformers writers room, beginning with a Bumblebee spinoff movie in 2018.

Although Michael Bay has previously said that The Last Knight will be his last Transformers movie, the director been chatting to MTV about the future of the franchise, revealing that he may not be done with the series after all.

“There are 14 stories written and there’s good stuff,” said Bay, who has helmed every instalment in the series so far. “I would like to do one of them though… A Transformers spinoff.”

Transformers 5 Motion Posters Introduce New Autobots and Decepticons

22 March 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after the Transformers: The Last Knight trailer offered a new glimpse at the villainous Megatron, we have yet another look at this villain, along with other robots in disguise courtesy of new motion posters. These living one-sheets feature returning robots in disguise such as Bumblebee, Megatron, Hound, Barricade and Optimus Prime, along with new additions such as Hot Rod, a fan favorite from the original animated series, making his live-action debut in this movie, the "British" robot Cogman, and the tiny Vespa Transformer Sqweeks. We've heard about all of these robots before, but these motion posters give us a better look at what they bring to the table when this movie hits theaters this summer.

Director Michael Bay debuted all of these motion posters on his Twitter account this morning. The filmmaker previously debuted a first look photo with Sqweeks alongside new star Isabela Moner while production was under way. »
