Transformers: The Last Knight Drops Super Bowl Spot

When we shared the Ghost in the Shell Super Bowl spot yesterday, we mentioned how last year’s game, between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers, drew 114.4 million viewers, the third biggest TV audience in history. Now, Paramount Pictures has debuted the 30-second Transformers: The Last Knight Super Bowl spot, bringing which showcases brand new footage in an extended 55-second ad that will play on Sunday.

The Last Knight is a bit like X-Men: Days of Future Past—it completely resets the franchise. The film finds the world in a precarious place, with humans and Transformers at war, and Optimus Prime gone. As in Days of Future Past, the way for our heroes to right the wrongs of the present is to travel to the past, and reveal the hidden history of the Transformers on Earth. Your heroes are Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins) and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

Returning cast members include Josh Duhamel as Lieutenant Colonel Lennox, Stanley Tucci as Joshua Joyce, Jerrod Carmichael as Desi, and Isabela Moner as the film’s female lead, Izabella. Liam Carrigan (Once Upon a Time) also plays King Arthur.

Michael Bay is back in the director’s chair, and your writers are Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down).

Transformers: The Last Knight will open in theaters on June 23, 2017. Bumblebee fans have a reason to rejoice; his spin-off will be released June 8, 2018 and the sixth Transformers movie set to debut June 28, 2019.
