It’s now common practise for directors to tease their forthcoming movies during production. Michael Bay is one of those not known for his subtlety, and this sneak peek behind the scenes of Transformers: The Last Knight is no exception.

Strapping returning leading man Mark Wahlberg and newcomer Laura Haddock to a giant spinning contraption seems like a good idea, but the glee in Bay’s eyes is something to behold.

The two actors are joined in this fifth go-around for the metal monsterthon by Sir Anthony Hopkins, recently seen to much acclaim in the new Westworld series, Josh Duhamel, Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael.
