Last month, director Michael Bay revealed on Twitter that the first trailer for his new action sequel Transformers 5 will debut in theaters December 16, attached to prints of Disney's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Earlier today, Michael Bay released a new video filled with photos and videos taken from the set, which reveals both that principal photography has wrapped, and that the first trailer will debut Monday, December 5. We don't know exactly when the trailer will drop, but we'll bring you the footage as soon as it arrives.
This new Twitter video features plenty of BTS footage and random photos sent out by the director ever since principal photography started in Cuba this summer. Among the several cast members featured in these photos are Mark Wahlberg, newcomer Isabela Moner, Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel and Anthony Hopkins, just to name a few. We'll most likely get to see all of these actors in action when the first trailer drops.
After Transformers 5 hits theaters on June 23, 2017, Paramount will debut a Bumblebee spin-off on June 8, 2018, followed by Transformers 6 on June 28, 2019. These movies were developed by a massive writer's room, that assembled under Akiva Goldsman. Transformers: The Last Knight writers Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan were part of this team, along with Steven S. DeKnight, Robert Kirkman, Zak Penn, Jeff Pinkner, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, Christina Hodson, Lindsey Beers and Geneva Robertson-Dorsett. Michael Bay helped oversee the writers room, along with Steven Spielberg, Hasbro's Brian Goldner and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian and Don Murphy.
Transformers 5 will put a new twist on the franchise, with the sequel recently bringing aboard Liam Garrigan as King Arthur and Santiago Cabrera as the iconic wizard Merlin. There had been rumors that this sequel would somehow connect to medieval times, with recent set photos showcasing actors in armor, riding on horseback, but we still don't have any official plot details quite yet.
The cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock and Anthony Hopkins. Michael Bay directs from a script by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan, who were all part of the Transformers franchise writers room, where they came up with numerous ideas for sequels and spinoffs. Paramount has set a June 23, 2017 release date for Transformers: The Last Knight, which will go up against Sony Pictures' comedy Rock That Body, starring Scarlett Johansson and Kate McKinnon. Take a look at this new video from the set of Transformers: The Last Knight as production comes to a close.
