Transformers: The Last Knight, set for release in 2017, is the fifth entry into the alien robot blockbuster franchise, but while the film is set to be a massive release next year, we don’t know too much about the story specifics of the upcoming sequel.
A new billboard has shed some light, though, as a giant poster for The Last Knight was placed in Times Square in New York City.
Thanks to some images from Seibertron.com, we can see that the billboard features Optimus Prime, brandishing his sword, and facing off against 3 monstrous looking creatures. A tattered Decepticon flag is in the background along with some various structures or towers.
We do know that following the conclusion of Transformers: Age of Extinction, Optimus Prime has set out to track down the Creators to seek revenge for the death and destruction they have brought on the Transformers and Earth.
For The Last Knight, Mark Wahlberg will reprise his role as Cade Yeager from Transformers: Age of Extinction. After skipping the last instalment, Josh Duhamel is also set to return as William Lennox, who appeared in the first three films.
Isabela Moner recently boarded the sequel as the female lead. She is best known for such indie movies as 100 Things to Do Before High School and Growing Up Fisher. The movie also landed Jerrod Carmichael from NBC’s The Carmichael Show as the comedic relief this time out. Shooting will take place in Detroit, with various on-location shoots planned to take place throughout the world.
Iron Man writers Art Marcum & Matt Holloway are joined by Black Hawk Down writer Ken Nolan on the screenplay. Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto return to produce this highly anticipated sequel. Transformers 5 will be followed by a Bumblebee spin-off movie in 2018, before Transformers 6 hits theaters in 2019.
