It might not be a franchise that is everyone's cup of tea, that's for sure. But director Michael Bay cannot be accused of sticking to the script. All while he readies his upcoming installment Transformers: The Last Knight. According to THR, the fifth film of the series is going back to an age where warriors wielded swords on horseback. Something that will make for an interesting dynamic when his robotic CGI characters roll into town to create more chaos.
The villain Megatron will be front and center of the plot, as the movie will bring back some familiar faces and big stars in the form of Stanley Tucci, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro and Mark Wahlberg.
Bay Goes Big As IMAX 3D Filming Comes Into Play
Hitting cinemas as of June 23, 2017, Michael Bay fronted a featurette that illustrated how the director will utilize the magic of IMAX 3D cinematography to enhance the overall viewing experience and spectacle.
"We are shooting with IMAX 3D and the results are phenomenal," says an excited Bay in the footage. "We are using all the IMAX technologies to give you the best experience you will see this year."
Not exactly sticking to the theory of under-promising and over-delivering. Bay courted controversy when he showed Winston Churchill's boyhood home back in September as part of the setting. He is also using the iconic Stonehenge but via a replica. Further demonstrating that the big budget director is wanting to bridge the gap between his fictional universe and real life.
King Arthur Snapped On Set
Gizmodo reports that an image on set of Transformers 5 featuring King Arthur has been leaked out, with the fighters potentially coming up against some of the machines. How that will work is a mystery. But it has been floated that they won't be in the form of cars or anything that would breach their version of reality all those hundreds of years previous.
To make events even weirder than they already are, the Nazis are also going to take part alongside Mr. Churchill. Appears like there will be some jumping in and out of some important historical events, so don't expect to be bored with a single timeframe for this one.
