Paramount Pictures debuted the trailer for the fifth installment in the Transformers series Transformers: The Last Knight during Monday Night Football.
The trailer showed glimpses at of all things that make Micahel Bay Transformers film both loved and hated – giant robots, huge explosions, gratuitous slow motion plus Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel looking appropriately heroic.
New additions include Sir Anthony Hopkins (to class up the film) and shots that allude to more historic links between Transformers and human history. The trailer opens with shots of what appears to be the medieval period complete with a robot dragon to reel in those allusive Game of Thrones and robot film cross-over demographic.
Watch the full bombastic trailer below.
