Following the new pair of Transformers: The Last Knight clips from the Kid's Choice Awards last weekend, Paramount is determined not to get lost in the crowded summer movie season and presents the latest trailer for the fifth entry in their giant robot franchise.
This fresh trailer is extremely effective and combines more of the relationship between Wahlberg's Cade and Isabela Moner's Izzy, the empowered orphan girl who is a survivor of the Battle of Chicago, with new footage of some awesome autobot action with Squeeks, Hound, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Canopy and a longer look at the funny scene in the scrapyard as a hungry Grimlock snacks on cars.
Sadly, it does omit the entire Medieval Europe and Nazi Germany elements of the story in favor of a family-centric, streamlined narrative set in the present-day.
For the woefully uninformed or time-constrained, here's Paramount's official synopsis:
The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock). There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
Plug in to this new 2 1/2 minute extended trailer, attached to Disney's Beauty and the Beast screenings, and chime in on your feelings going into this upcoming Transformers flick.
Also starring Isabella Moner, Stanley Tucci and John Turturro, Michael Bay's Transformers: The Last Knight thunders into theaters on June 23.
