Ever since production started on Transformers: The Last Knight, director Michael Bay has shared a slew of videos and photos from the set, along with official first looks at some of the Autobots and Decepticons in their vehicle modes. Last month, he shared a particularly explosive video from the on-location shoot, and now we have another action-packed video featuring another car wreck. If that wasn't enough, we also have another video posted by the director yesterday, showcasing some of the Scotland scenery he has to work with.
Both videos were posted on Instgram, but the car wreck video was posted nearly a month ago. The director's Instagram also reveals that he took some time off from the shoot to work with some Victoria's Secret models in Paris, before returning to the Transformers 5 set yesterday. We're not sure how much filming remains on this action packed sequel, but Paramount has already set a June 23, 2017 release date.
Earlier this week, we reported that Transformers: The Last Knight may have a medieval connection to King Arthur. Production is taking place on the Scottish island of Skye, with the photos that surfaced this week showing actors on horseback, wearing traditional medieval costumes. While other Transformers movies have featured flashbacks to different time periods, this would easily be the biggest time jump in franchise history, if this rumor is confirmed to be true.
In Transformers 5, Optimus Prime searching through the cosmos for the Quintessons, the beings believed to be responsible for the creation of the Transformers race. Meanwhile back at home, Wahlberg's Cade Yeager will be facing a new alien threat that brings returning characters Lennox (Josh Duhamel and Epps (Tyrese Gibson) back into duty. Isabela Moner has signed on as the female lead, though no character details have been revealed.
The supporting cast includes Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock and Anthony Hopkins, although very little is known about their characters. Shooting began in Cuba earlier this summer, before the bulk of the production took place in Detroit. There are also various on-location shoots planned to take place in other locations throughout the world, so hopefully we'll continue to get updates from director Michael Bay as production continues. Take a look at the filmmaker's latest Instagram video, and stay tuned for more on Transformers: The Last Knight.
