During the MTV Movie Awards, we got to see yet another clip from the upcoming summer flick Transformers: The Last Knight.
In the clip, we see our first official meeting between Cade Yeager (Mark Whalberg), Edmund Burton (Anthony Hopkins) and Viviane Wembley (Laura Haddock). I have to say, if I suddenly discovered that my truck were a Transformer, I would more than likely be freaked out also. In addition to our human friends- we get to meet Hot Rod and Cogman as well as get a better look at our beloved Autobot friend; Bumblebee. Is it just me, or does it sound like he’s actually getting his voice back?
The clip teases ‘robots with dementia’, as Cade attempts to figure out who his friends really are as humans find themselves at war with the Transformers.
We recently learned of Hot Rod’s casting in the film, and thanks to an interview with EW, we now know why his role is so critical in the film. Hot Rod is a 1963 Citroën DS that belonged to Viviane Wembley’s father and has acted as an undercover Autobot agent covertly looking out for Viviane who inherits the car. Haddock described her relationship with the car:
It’s a rickety old thing, but she can’t part with it because she adores it. This car has actually been put there to watch her and feedback information to Anthony Hopkins’s character about what she’s up to and her life. So yeah, she gets kind of taken [by surprise] in a really funny, dramatic way by this Hot Rod.
She’s not had a very good relationship with her father, but this is one thing that her father has done that makes her realize that maybe he cared then she thought.
Check out the Clip Below:
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.
Transformers: The Last Knight arrives in theaters on June 21, 2017.
