Transformers 5 gets official title

The fifth Transformers movie continues to loom on the horizon, and Paramount is preparing to launch the marketing campaign for what’s sure to be one of their highest-grossing movies of next year. To spearhead the push towards hyping the next installment in the sci-fi action movie franchise, Paramount has revealed the movie’s official title today; Transformers: The Last Knight.

This title could mean any number of things, especially since Paramount and Hasbro, the company originally behind the Transformers toy line, have already put together a creative brain trust to start writing story pitches for not only mainline Transformers movie sequels in the years to come, but also spin-offs, one of which is rumoured to center around fan-favourite Autobot, Bumblebee.

Currently, the Transformers’ roster on both the Autobots’ and Decepticons’ sides are unknown, though it’s pretty strongly implied that Optimus Prime will continue to be a series mainstay, considering that he’s headlining the movie’s recently-launched Instagram page. On this note, Paramount has also released official title art for Transformers: The Last Knight, which you can check out below:

Mark Wahlberg will return from the previous Transformers: Age of Extinction as lead character, Cade Yeager, though it appears that Nicola Peltz won’t be returning as his on-screen daughter. Instead, the female lead role will be filled by Isabela Moner, playing a character named ‘Izabella’, go figure. Jerrod Carmichael is also said to be playing a lead role, though his character is currently unknown. Finally, as with all of the live-action Transformers movies made to date, Michael Bay will be directing Transformers: The Last Knight.

Transformers: The Last Knight will come to theatres on June 23rd, 2017.
