Michael Bay responds to Transformers: The Last Knight’s Blenheim Palace Nazi controversy

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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, »

Autobots Roll Out in New Transformers 5 Video

22 September 2016 10:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production continuing on Transformers 5, the franchise's Facebook page debuted a new video that shows some of the Autobots in action. The video doesn't show much, but we get to see Bumblebee, Drift and Crosshairs rolling out. While that video will have to tide you over as far as footage is concerned, franchise producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura recently made a bold statement about the franchise at large, that has no plans of slowing down.

Shortly after the Facebook video debuted, Lorenzo di Bonaventura spoke with The Hollywood Reporter, to promote his new film Deepwater Horizon, in theaters September 30, when the talk eventually turned to the Transformers franchise. The producer has signed on for three more Transformers movies, and a spin-off centering on one of the most beloved Autobots, Bumblebee, which lead to him being asked if he was worried about "franchise fatigue," in light of several sequels tanking at the box office this summer. »

Transformers 5 Shoot Invades a Famous Harry Potter Landmark

17 September 2016 10:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

Transformers 5: The Last Knight Set Videos Reveal New Cars

11 September 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

Transformers 5 First Look at Bumblebee, Hot Rod and Mark Wahlberg On Set

6 September 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »

Transformers 5 Brings Back Stanley Tucci as Joshua Joyce

5 September 2016 11:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »

Stanley Tucci reprising Age of Extinction role for Transformers: The Last Knight

5 September 2016 1:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 WahlbergJosh DuhamelTyrese 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, »

Transformers 5 King Arthur Story Is Inspired by Animated TV Series

31 August 2016 11:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, we reported that Once Upon a Time star Liam Garrigan signed on to play King Arthur in Paramount's upcoming action sequel Transformers: The Last Knight. This essentially confirmed months of rumors that this sequel will have connections to the medieval story involving both King Arthur and the mystical legend Merlin. Today, we have new details that may reveal the inspiration for this tale. While this report hasn't been confirmed, it's possible this tale was actually pilfered from the original Transformers animated series.

Before Liam Garrigan was cast, who ironically played King Arthur on Once Upon a Time, there had been plot rumors that the story centers on Optimus Prime returning to Earth in search of a mysterious artifact, which has ties to both King Arthur and the magician Merlin. Santiago Cabrera, who had previously been cast but whose character was never revealed, is playing Merlin.The Hollywood »

Liam Garrigan cast in Transformers: The Last Knight

30 August 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The past few weeks have seen several Autobots and Decepticons revealed in Michael Bay’s Tranformers: The Last Knight, the latest in his Transformers film franchise. Not much has really been revealed on the human side though, but now comes news of the newest addition. Liam Garrigan, who played King Arthur in the television series Once Upon A Time, has been cast in the film as none other than… King Arthur.

This news comes from Mashable, who also say the wizard Merlin will play a role, though no one that we know of has yet been cast in that role. This is rather unusual news to hear of an actor playing the same character in two very separate franchises, but maybe Michael Bay is just a fan of Once Upon A Time? Merlin also played a fairly vital role in Once Upon A Time, as portrayed by Elliot Knight. Might »
