‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Just Got A Rather Odd Release Date

Transformers: The Last Knight, the long-awaited sequel to 2014’s Transformers: Age Of Extinction is arriving even earlier than planned.

Michael Bay’s fifth installment in the Transformers franchise will hit theaters on June 21st, two days earlier than its original release date. This time around our beloved, Optimus Prime is in some deep ish. In his absence, humans (because apparently, we don’t like nice things) are at war with the Transformers. In order to get things back on track, a struggling inventor, Bumblebee, an English Lord and a professor must ban together to determine why the Transformers keep returning to Earth.

When the teaser trailer for the film dropped back in February, we saw a lot of mass destruction and heard the voice of Sir Anthony Hopkins who plays Transformers historian Sir Edmund Burton saying, “You want to know, don’t you? Why they keep coming here, to earth?” It looks like all will finally be revealed.

Transformers: The Last Knight is about to shatter all of the myths that lay at the core of the Transformers franchise and unveil something completely unexpected. The cryptic tagline for the film boasts,

“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.”

From the looks of it, we’re not sure that Optimus Prime is even going to make it out of this film unscathed. But what do we really know?

Transformers: The Last Knight might be the most dramatic and visceral entry in the series yet, and we get to watch it even sooner than we thought.

Will you be snagging a ticket?
