Then there's Bumblebee, who has always been the highlight of the franchise and doesn't disappoint in this one (a spin-off movie for "B" is in the works). Even grading on a "Transformers" curve, this thing is hard to stay engaged with - and we're talking pretty early in its two-and-a-half-hour run time. Oh, I don't know.
I know we're doing a spinoff first in the Bumblebee movie, and that is a very distinctive departure from what you've been seeing so far... In the classic design, Bumblebee was is based on a Volkswagon Beetle, but was changed to a Chevy Camaro for the reboot. However, as the man behind the machines walks away and we branch out into a Bumblebee prequel, alongside the untold potential of a franchise that may never stop, where do we go next?
Transformers: The Last Knight is now playing.

Instead, they said it appeared he had suffered severe neurological damage, possibly as a result of cardiopulmonary arrest. Let's just call this statement by North Korea what this is: trolling.
In space, Autobots leader Optimus Prime has been captured by his creator Quintessa, the firstborn and life giver of the Transformers, and has been brainwashed into becoming her servant. Along the way, the movie flashes back to King Arthur's knights and to World War II, with Anthony Hopkins delivering some of the most ridiculous lines of his career as he explains the secret history of the Transformers. Or something. While the talisman finds a connection with Cade, the staff seemingly may be wielded only by Merlin's last living descendent, a lovely Oxford professor, Vivian Wembley (Laura Haddock of the "Guardians of the Galaxy" films). Is there a Transformers: The Last Knight after credits scene or not? Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours. One of the big things going into this fifth movie in the franchise is that it will actually help to expand the mythology of the Transformers and reveal even more of their backstory.
Despite the "Transformers" movies making less domestically at theaters, they continue to kill it overseas. The film also stars Isabela Moner, Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins, Santiago Cabrera, Liam Garrigan, Jerrod Carmichael, and Mitch Pileggi.
Overseas, "The Last Knight" will open in 42 markets on Friday. Other transformers appearing the film include Bumblebee, Drift, Hot Rod, Cogman, Canopy, Sqweeks, Grimlock, Megatron, Barricade, Onslaught, Hooligan, and Mohawk.
The Transformers themselves are given uniquely recognizable personalities, none better than John Goodman's Hound, a badass commando right out of a John Wayne movie.
