Briefly: I’ve been pretty vocal about my distaste for the Transformers film series over the past few years (tl:dr – huge fan of the cartoon and comic books, severely let down by the first film, and never watched another), so with the release of the first teaser for next Summer’s Transformers: The Last Knight, I have a lot of questions about what this series has become.
Here are a few examples:
-Why is Optimus Prime dead?
-How can humans still be fighting Transformers after five movies?
-Why does this trailer start way, way, way back in the past?
-How did this film get Anthony Hopkins on board?
-As someone who’s only seen the first film… are any of these movies worth watching?
Again, that’s not a conclusive list based on this pretty confusing trailer. Aside from not making any sense to me, I thought that the trailer had some epic moments, and some fantastic effects.
Someone should definitely answer my questions in the comments below, and everyone else can take a look at the first teaser! Transformers: The Last Knight hits theatres on June 23rd!
