This hot summer’s evening the capital played host to the world premiere of Michael Bay’s latest Transformers movie, his fifth and supposedly last. The first film was released a decade ago, with a sequel following, on average, every two and a half years. The first film was helped in no small part by Steven Spielberg, whose suggestion to Bay to base the film about a boy and his first car set a relatable tone the series has consistently moved away from. Early word on Transformers The Last Knight suggests that the series has improved on its fifth occasion, and it really needs to.

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.
