Whether it be a talking teddy bear, or a gigantic autobot – Mark Wahlberg has plenty experience working opposite things that aren’t really there, and we discussed with the Hollywood star the challenges that derive from this means of storytelling on the big screen.
Speaking to Stefan Pape from HeyUGuys – for the fourth time, no less – Wahlberg also speaks about the mass appeal of the Transformers franchise, and exactly what it is that has allowed for it to enter in to its fifth instalment. He also discusses what it’s like watching the films back, given how much was added in post-production, and also what it’s like actually working opposite humans too, and in particular, Sir Anthony Hopkins.
We also asked if there were any other characters he’s embodied in his career he’d like to revisit one day, and whether the alleviation of pressure that derived from not producing this movie was a welcome one. Finally we discussed his future project All the Money in the World, where he collaborates with Ridley Scott for the very first time.
Watch the full interview below…
Humans are at war with the Transformers, and Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving the future lies buried in the secrets of the past and the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Now, it’s up to the unlikely alliance of Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), Bumblebee, an English lord (Anthony Hopkins) and an Oxford professor (Laura Haddock) to save the world.
Transformers: The Last Knight is released on June 22nd.
