The fifth Transformers movie is set to continue the new trilogy that began with Transformers: Age of Extinction, whose stars Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox were replaced by Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor. With a release date of June 23, 2017, it seems like a good time to collect what we know so far about the now renamed Transformers: The Last Knight for fans of the franchise.
Despite the latest installment's disappointing reviews, the Transformers films have been major box office hits, and plans for the sixth, seventh, and eighth sequels have already been announced by Hasbro. Paramount is promising sweeping changes for the franchise beginning with Transformers 5, which includes casting a young female actress as the lead character, making Optimus Prime travel through both space and time, and ramping up the entire Transformers cinematic universe.
With filming having begun last May, no footage is available as of yet, though several promotional photos for the Autobots and Decepticons appearing in the movie have been released. It's likely that The Last Knight will also be rated PG-13, just like all four previous installments, as its director and the studio like to push the envelope for the series, never going for an R rating, yet never softening for a PG rating either (despite being based on a line of toys).
Hit NEXT for Transformers: The Last Knight's new and returning cast members, insane plot details, and new looks for returning alien robots as well as brand new ones.
