The biggest perceived threat can ultimately prove to be a surprising ally. The title antagonists to humanity in the hit ‘Transformers’ movie franchise are shocking their supposed enemies in a new trailer and TV spot for the upcoming sequel, ‘The Last Knight.’ In the follow-up’s latest clip, new series star, Anthony Hopkins, reveals that every legend has a secret. The Academy Award-winning actor also makes a stunning announcement about the Transformers’ past interactions with humans, and is encouraging people to rethink the past.

The video, along with a newly released poster, are helping to promote ‘Transformers: The Last Knight‘ distribution in theaters on June 23 by Paramount Pictures. The action-adventure movie, which was shot with IMAX 3D cameras, was directed by Michael Bay. The anticipated fifth installment of the popular ‘Transformers’ franchise sees the return of such series stars Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro and Josh Duhamel. The sci-fi film also features newcomers to the franchise, including Hopkins, Laura Haddock, Jerrod Carmichael, Isabela Moner and Santiago Cabrera.

‘The Last Knight’ shatters the core myths of the ‘Transformers’ series, 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 (Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord, Sir Edmund Burton (Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor, Vivian Wembley (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.
