Transformers Meets Excalibur in The Last Knight

At least, that’s what it looks like to me. Transformers fighting alongside medieval knights wielding swords around what looks like King Arthur’s round table? Sure, why not? I doubt anyone’s going into a Transformers movie expecting a gripping, sensible story at this point. You go in for action and Michael Bay explosions.

This trailer certainly gives you action. Transformers with swords, Transformers with guns, and destruction left and right. It looks like human beings are fighting the robots now. I admit I’m quite a ways behind on this series. Maybe this scenario makes more sense than I’m aware of due to my unfamiliarity past the first couple entries.

In the absence of Optimus Prime, humans and Transformers have begun a fight over Earth, with each side seeking survival. In the process, they will attempt to solve the mystery of Transformers always come to Earth. Again, this isn’t really that important. So long as the movie gives you some justification for why the giant transforming robots are kicking the crap out of each other, fans will be happy. That’s all kids of the ’80s growing up with these toys and cartoons ever wanted out of these movies.

Transformers: The Last Knight releases on June 23. It stars Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Isabela Moner, Anthony Hopkins (make that money bud), and John Turturro.
