Transformers: The Last Knight is the official title for the 5th movie in the exhaustingly long-running Hasbro series.  Now the question remains, “who is the ‘Last Knight’?”

Could it be Optimus Prime?  The last time we saw him in Transformers: Age of Extinction he was flying up to space to take on the “Robot Overlords”.  Plus, the instagram post of his face really makes you believe that that’s what Director Michael Bay and Paramount want you to think. Although, they have a vast history of throwing curve balls at audiences.  Hence, Grimlock and the mute Dino-knights.

This teaser also reveals that production is set to begin this June.  Which means that the entire cast and crew has one year to make sure this movie meets its June 23, 2017 release date.

Those looking at this title at face value may think that it would be the last movie of the franchise.  Unfortunately, that’s not the case as Paramount has already announced release dates for 6 & 7.  I’d love to see a reboot of the franchise as the series has felt labored after the first movie.  Dark Side of the Moon wasn’t bad but Age of Extinction was complete rubbish.  Knowing that we potentially have more of the same in store is a little nerve-wracking.  However, there are rumors that Paramount would like to reboot soon.  Perhaps, that’s what 6 & 7 are for.  Secret reboots?  Only time will tell.

What do you think about the Last Knight?
