How Mark Wahlberg Got Into 'Transformers' Shape in Three Weeks

We'll have to wait and see when Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters next week on June 21.

Seeing as the Transformers movies are mostly known for being explosive CGI showcases and not too much else, they might as well lean into it.

Director Michael Bay is also due to be at the premiere, held at Cineworld Leicester Square in London.

"In cinema, I'm always trying to push the boundaries", he says, in the 2-minute video, "and it's really to give you the very best experience".

Earlier this year, Michael Bay indicated that Transformers: The Last Knight would be his farewell to the franchise based on the Hasbro toy sensation.

Asked if he would finally be stepping away from the Transformers films, Bay said: "I've done it enough, and I've had a great time doing it. They're still out at cafes, you know, and going to places and doing things - it's pretty remarkable here, the strength and resilience here that they show".

Movie website Fandango has interviewed director Michael Bay about his plans for the future, and they once again do not include another Transformers film. "I think I've had a good run, and I've got a lot of other movies I want to do".

The report also claims that the upcoming movie will feature less Autobots and Decepticons than what we've come to expect in the main Transformers franchise. 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). After directing the first three Transformers films back-to-back he crafted the dark comedy Pain & Gain, and before The Last Knight he directed the true-story war actioner 13 Hours. Assuming Wahlberg's comments can be taken at face-value, that means that the franchise will be introducing its third human protagonist, in Transformers 6. Heroes will become villains.
