Paramount Pictures has released nine new character posters for Transformers 5, ahead of its theatrical release on Wednesday, June 21. These one-sheets feature robot and human characters alike, such as the British transformer Cogman, Vivian Wembley (Laura Haddock), the beloved Autobot Bumblebee, Izzy (Isabela Moner), Jimmy (Jerrod Carmichael), Lt. Colonel William Lenox (Josh Duhamel), Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), Sir Edward Burton (Anthony Hopkins) and the Transformer Hot Rod. The studio also announced today that exclusive Optimus Prime Time opening night events for Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight will be held across the U.S. on Tuesday, June 20, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. local time at participating theaters.

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 (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.

Transformers: The Last Knight opens nationwide on June 21, 2017. While this is expected to be the final Transformers movie for director Michael Bay, and even for the beloved character Optimus Prime, the franchise is far from over. Paramount is currently prepping its Bumblebee spin-off, which recently brought on Hailee Steinfeld to star, with Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings) set to direct. There are reportedly 13 other Transformers movies that have been developed through the Transformers writers room, but the studio hasn’t announced which movie will come after Bumblebee, which has been set for release on June 8, 2018.


LOS ANGELES, June 3 — With just a few weeks till its release, check out this upcoming action-packed Transformers: The Last Knight clip that gives us a better look at the Dinobot babies.

In the popular franchise, Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro are back for more action along with newcomers Isabela Moner, Santiago Cabrera, Mitch Pileggi and Anthony Hopkins.

The official synopsis of the film reads: “Transformers: 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 (Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Haddock).

Transformers: The Last Knight’s overseas locations means the cast and crew often have to hit the road, and ET got a look at Mark Wahlberg’s special travel gear during a trip to the set.

“I’ve got my workout equipment,” Wahlberg showed ET. “I’ve got my rotisserie, my hot plate … in the morning, I’ve got my clubs. I got some tuna from back home.”

Co-star Josh Duhamel warned us that Wahlberg has an intense schedule that starts with a 3:30 a.m. workout, and Wahlberg explained the need for his rigorous regimen.

“I put on a lot of weight,” Wahlberg said. “[Director] Michael [Bay] saw me and freaked out. I promised him I’d get in good shape, so I started training early. I get it all in and then I come to work for 12 hours.”

Despite the early workouts and long work days, life on the road has come with some perks for the Oscar-nominated actor. The trip to Europe has afforded the father of four the chance to spend some quality time with his family.

“We went to Buckingham Palace. Princess Eugenie gave us a tour,” Wahlberg shared. “We went to France. I took the family to the Eiffel Tower. It was cool.”

Even with all the fun that comes with visiting new places, it appears there can be too much of a good thing.

“The only thing better than that is finishing this movie — it’s a five-month shoot — and taking my wife to dinner … take my kids to school,” Wahlberg said.

Transformers: The Last Knight opens June 23, 2017.


The production has officially started on Transformers 5 … and they’re in Britain.

Explosions and Hollywood stars descended on an historic Northumberland town as the set from the new Transformers movie set up in front of Alnwick Castle.

Actor Mark Wahlberg along with director Michael Bay were seen filming Transformers: The Last Knight outside the home of the Duke of Northumberland.

Two explosions were captured by a drone after numerous super cars from the film were seen driving near Kielder Water earlier in the week.

The crew were seen going back and forth along the road from Alnwick Garden to the castle, as the morning fog was slowly burnt off by the sun.

Cranes and lights were set up pointing through the castle windows as filming took place inside as well.

Wahlberg, 45, who also starred in Ted, The Departed and The Boxer, paused for a break in filming to have his make-up done as Bay gave out instructions.

The fifth instalment in the series, which has Steven Spielberg as an executive producer, also filmed in London near Bank tube station, when a dramatic stunt saw a car hurled onto its side.

The series, directed by Bay, has grossed over £2.79bn ( 3.7bn) worldwide.

Stars in the film, which is expected to shoot in other places around the North East, include Sir Anthony Hopkins, Stanley Tucci and Isabela Moner.

New set video for Transformers: The Last Knight has been released online featuring Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and director Michael Bay offering a behind-the-scenes look at some sort of water scene.

Per the norm, we can see explosions are involved.

“As Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel discovered, this isn’t your typical water slide,” the Transformers movie social networks posted.

Watch below.

“Transformers: The Last Knight” has a June 23, 2017 release directed by Michael Bay starring Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Stephen Merchant, Isabela Moner, Jean Dujardin, Jerrod Carmichael, Allen Phoenix, with Peter Cullen returning as the voice of Optimus Prime.

He first joined the franchise with a role in 2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction. And Mark Wahlberg is back for the fifth installment of the Michael Bay action saga, as he was spotted filming in Detroit, Michigan on Saturday. The 45-year-old was seen falling backwards out of a bright yellow Chevy Camaro as he shot with Autobot ‘co-star’ Bumblebee.

Mark showed off his sculpted physique in a long-sleeved, fitted navy blue sweater coupled with a pair of slate grey trousers. The father-of-four finished off the look with a pair of black oxfords, and wore his hair slicked back for the scenes. He was seen sitting in the driver’s seat of the bright yellow car, which itself is a character in the movie, Autobot Bumblebee.

In a series of photographs from the Detroit set, Mark can be seen tumbling backwards as the driver’s seat turns and spills out of the vehicle. In between takes Mark could be seen protecting himself from the sun as he huddled beneath a large, black umbrella. And the fan friendly star also used time in between takes to greet some fans, while promoting his family’s restaurant, Wahlburgers, by sporting a baseball cap with its logo. The day before he had been seen wielding a sword while looking a bit disheveled and wearing distressed clothing to film scenes in front of a green screen.

He was joined by co-stars Josh Duhamel and Laura Haddock as they shot the scenes by the green screen and a giant fan. Anthony Hopkins, Tyrese Gibson, and Ken Watanabe also star in the upcoming sequel, directed by Michael Bay. Transformers: The Last Knight is due in theaters on June 23, 2017.  []

Highly anticipated fifth installment in the hit robotic franchise “Transformers” is confirmed to have its production taking place in Detroit, Michigan.

According to, it was revealed by Michigan Economic Development Corporation after some shuffling of incentives from other approved Paramount Pictures projects.

The restructured single agreement incentives for “Transformers 5” will reportedly save the state $21 million and speed up the production that will start sometime during the summer. The studio previously had multiple pre-approved applications of approximately $42 million in eligible incentives.

“Having one of the highest-profile film franchises created in Michigan is a major economic boost and a testament to the talent of the state’s production community. The production and economic investment is now happening sooner rather than later, and obviously, the project is a certainty rather than merely a possibility,” commissioner of the Michigan Film & Digital Media Office, Jenell Leonard said.

President of physical production at Paramount Pictures, Lee Rosenthal also shared in a statement, “Michigan has been so welcoming of Michael Bay and the ‘Transformers’ movies over the years and we are thrilled to be returning for this next incredible installment.”

The report added that production is predicted to have $80 million in expenses with the cast and crew around 850 strong, 450 of whom will be residents of Michigan which is said to equate to 228 full-time positions. There will also be more than 700 extras to be hired and the amended dedicated fund is believed to meet all the criteria needed to make the film happen.

“Transformers 5” will be written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway who previously worked on “Iron Man” and Ken Nolan of “Black Hawk Down.” Mark Wahlberg is set to return for the lead role while Michael Bay is believe to be directing for the last time before he reportedly passes the helm for the franchise. It is slated to be released on June 23, 2017.


For a film franchise dedicated to robots in disguise, Transformers tends to draw a lot of attention to itself whenever a morsel of information about the latest film tumbles out. That’s just the nature of the lucrative box office beast, we suppose.

Transformers 5 (aka the placeholder title until it gets rechristened Transformers: Suckling The Blood Of The Milky Way or something similar) is apparently set to film sooner than we thought. Originally positioned for what appeared to be a June start to filming, My Entertainment World lists the current filming plans as set for May. The industry tracking site’s shoot date update does not come with any details about where it’s all going down, so that might throw a monkey wrench in your stalking plans.

As we’ve noted before, director Michael Bay and newish franchise arrival Mark Wahlberg are both a go for the upcoming motion picture. Their last outing (Transformers: Age of Extinction) grossed a ridiculous $1.1 billion in global box office, so there’s a pretty good chance you won’t see the new Transformers offering relegated to “budget” theaters after its opening week. Bay has stated that Transformers 5 will be his last movie for the lucrative and remarkably resilient franchise. Do with that information what you will.

An exact date for the release of the fifth movie in the series isn’t quite hammered out yet, but 2017 is the targeted year. Things are a similar level of murky for what the plot of the film will be with rumors and theories in heavy supply versus what’s actually been confirmed. If you have any friends that are car/robot hybrid creatures, be sure to ask if they’ve heard anything.


After months of speculation surrounding Transformers 5, some details have emerged about the movie’s filming from director Michael Bay. After confirming his return to the action franchise, Bay revealed possible locations where filming would begin in June 2016.

While speaking with WGN Radio’s Dean Richards, Bay was asked whether he will return to Michigan Avenue, to which he replied, “I love Chicago. We’ll come in with some Transformers to even it out.”

He also said that Paramount Pictures is gearing up for production of the film. In early January, Bay confirmed his return to direct the next film of the franchise after Age Of Extinction. “I’ve taken on a lot of work…. Transformers, I still have a great time. It’s fun to do a movie that 100 million people will see. But this is the last one. I have to pass the reins to someone else,” he told Rolling Stone.

Previously, Paramount Pictures hired a group of writers to frame an impeccable plot to narrate the journey of leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, and his arch nemesis group, the Decepticons. While the plot of the movie is not known, chief writer Akiva Goldsman hinted that the upcoming film will explore the mythologies of the popular series through the Hasbro toy and comic book series. He also spoke about some interaction between humans and Autobots.

Age of Extinction, was panned by critics for lack of creativity and storytelling. It ended with Optimus Prime travelling to outer space to settle scores with the Creators who are intending to eliminate humans from Earth. It is speculated that the sequel will follow the Autobots leader to a different planet or space.

Moreover, Mark Wahlberg will return to reprise his role of Cade Yeager. Co-produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Steven Spielberg is the executive producer of the upcoming film. Transformers 5 will see the return of Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager. The movie is expected to premiere in 2017.


Almost one year ago, actor Mark Wahlberg was pretty sure that he would return for a Transformers 5, and though some progress has been made on the next entry in the franchise, Wahlberg hasn’t spoken about returning again, until now. In an interview with CinePop, Wahlberg confirmed once again that he’ll be back for the film.

In the fourth film, “Age of Extinction,” Wahlberg played Cade Yeager, a Texas inventor and mechanic who was also very protective of his daughter, Nicola Peltz’s Tessa Yeager. Transformers: Age of Extinction grossed over $1.1 billion at the global box office, bringing all four films combined to a total gross over $3.7 billion.

Transformers 5 is set to be written by Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down). Director Michael Bay hasn’t not been officially confirmed to return, though Bay remains in contention to return to the helm of the franchise.

In addition, Ant-Man scribes Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari will script an animated “origin story” film that will be set on the Transformers’ homeworld of Cybertron. Both films came from the newly formed “Transformers writers room,” which includes the likes of “The Walking Dead” and “Invincible” creator Robert Kirkman, “Fringe” and “Lost” scribe Jeff Pinkner, X-Men: The Last Stand and The Incredible Hulk‘s Zak Penn, “Black List” scribes Geneva Robertson-Dworetrepeat, and “Marvel’s Daredevil” season one showrunner Steven DeKnight.  []

Mark Wahlberg Is Set To Return To The Transformers Film Franchise For At Least One More Movie As Studio Bosses Plan The Next Four Instalments In The Blockbuster Series.

The Lone Survivor star took over from Shia LaBeouf as the leading man in the robot action films for 2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Although it was panned by critics, the fourth film hit gold at the global box office, grossing $1.1 billion by the end of 2014 to become the biggest movie of the year (14).

Now Hasbro Studios president Steven Davis has confirmed fans can look forward to at least four more sequels.

“We decided that we wanted to plot out the next 10 years of the Transformers franchise,” he told attendees at entertainment convention Mipcom in Cannes, France. “Stay tuned – Transformers 5 is on its way. And six and seven and eight.”

Wahlberg is slated to reprise his role as Cade Yeager for the as-yet-untitled Transformers 5, while filmmaker Michael Bay, who took charge of the original 2007 release, will continue to serve as executive producer.

Oscar-winning A Beautiful Mind screenwriter Akiva Goldsman and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 scribe Jeff Pinkner are penning the script for the next Transformers sequel, which is expected to hit movie theatres in 2017.

A director has yet to be announced.
