Transformers: The Last Knight Super Bowl spot shows Bumblebee vs Optimus

Transformers: The Last Knight follows 2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction and continues the battle between Autobots, Decepticons, and humans. In the new spot, it looks like Optimus Prime might be evil (Nemesis Prime?), or at least something is controlling him, leaving Bumblebee, Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), an English Lord (Anthony Hopkins), an Oxford professor (Laura Haddock), and some old human allies from the original trilogy to help figure out what is happening to Optimus.

The trailer starts with the the voice of Sir Anthony Hopkins asking, “You want to know, don’t you — why they keep coming here to Earth?” This begs the questions as to why the battles continue on Earth and not back on their home planet of Cybertron and ends with Optimus fighting fan-favorite, Bumblebee.

Transformers: The Last Knight is the fifth film in the Transformers franchise and is directed by Michael Bay. Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci are returning from the 4th film, while Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro are also returning from the original trilogy.

Synopsis: The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

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.
