Bay Teases Transformers 5 Trailer Release in New BTS Video

In a video and tweet, Michael Bay teases the release of the Transformers: The Last Knight teaser trailer on Monday. No time was provided. The video (below) provides a brief look at some of the filming and action sequences for the film. The production recently completed re-shoots on the USS Carl Vinson which is why the references to a wrap seems to be coming about two months later then expected. Thanks to Feris O. for the heads-up.

Transformers Animated Web Series Renewed

Hasbro and Machinima are going to continue their partnership by finishing the Prime Wars Trilogy of web shorts. Transformers: Combiners Wars had over 120 million views total worldwide. The remaining two parts will be called Transformers: Titans Return and Transformers: Power of the Primes. As each part was only five minutes in length, assuming the format remains the same that means the entire trilogy will wind up being an hour and half in length.
“The global fan base has really embraced this vision of the Transformers,” said Machinima CEO Chad Gutstein, “and we are thrilled to be working closely with Hasbro developing the next two installments of the series.”

“Transformers has always been fueled by the brand’s rich, compelling characters and storylines, and Transformers: Combiner Wars tapped into that lore to offer fans a truly unique and new digital-first story for the franchise” said Stephen Davis, Chief Content Officer of Hasbro. “Following the success of the first series, we are excited to announce this continued collaboration with Machinima and believe Transformers fans will be thrilled to see the story continue to unfold.”

Transformers: The Last Knight Teaser Coming December 16

In a post on the Transformers Twitter feed, Michael Bay announced that the teaser trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight will premiere on December 16 with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. No mention was made of the internet release plans but lately the studios have been doing it the day before or day of the theatrical release. If plan on checking it out in theaters keep in mind that the studios can only provide the trailers and suggest which movies to attach them to, doesn't mean the theater will do it (the ones near me never do).

Sneak Peek of Transformers: The Last Knight Footage Via IMAX Featurette

In what is likely the rumored IMAX trailer, posted a featurette that looks back at 10 year partnership between the Transformers franchise and IMAX. The last 40 seconds or so also provides a series of quick cuts of behind the scenes footage that was filmed for Transformers: The Last Knight over the summer. Thanks to Feris O. for the link.

Transformers: The Last Knight IMAX Trailer Coming?

A new classification from the Alberta Film Ratings office for "Transformers: The Last Knight (IMAX exclusive trailer)" indicates that IMAX viewers at least will get an early peak at the upcoming movie. No release date is indicated but Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them does seem like a prime opportunity. If not with that movie then Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the other likely candidate for the most all ages audience the TF5 marketing group would be aiming for. The office just rated the trailer as PG and provided no additional info marketing plans or if a non-IMAX trailer are in the works.

Update: The likely IMAX "trailer" can be viewed here.
