Destruction reigns in the upcoming fifth saga in the Transformers world, and nothing says it louder than the atmospheric and touching tone in the newly released second trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight.
Leading the epic devastation that unfolds in the new trailer is veteran and newcomer to the franchise Anthony Hopkins as he narrates the story from its humble beginnings all those centuries ago. An imprisoned Optimus prime, shackled by chains is read his last rights as he is asked if he seeks redemption for destroying his home before the trailer cuts to the returning Mark Wahlberg in a scene that is reminiscent of this year’s final showing for Logan. “Without Leaders Chaos Reigns” is murmured from the lips of Hopkins as stadiums lay in ruins as epic battles commence with spectacular CGI.

Transformers: The Last Knight Official 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.
