Here's some info about showcasing of concept art from the film, and probably toys.

http://news.tfw2005.com/2016/10/03/h...le-2016-325707

Also, this quote:

"Transformers Franchise is making a rather large presence in UK this year and the next with majority of the 5th movie taking place in the country. Filming is currently taking place in London and historic places such as Stonehenge and Blenheim Palace."

I'm hoping that the 6th film will do a historical revision of historical revisions.

on another note i know transformers in the live actions movies have never been 'pretty' and are alien like on purpose but g.d i'll never get used to it. hot rod looks so stocky and kinda bumblebee-ish. bay could save up some money on dispensable explosions and apply it in character design

I'm not sure the people who own Blenheim Palace should feel constrained about which film and TV productions they should hire out to based on the imagined reaction of just one person to have lived there. Considering it seems to be the go to place for out of the UK EVIL organisation headquarters (it was SPECTRE's Rome base in..err...SPECTRE as well) I wouldn't be surprised if it's played host to actors in Nazi costumes before either.

I may be going out on a limb here but I'm going to guess that the film will come down on the side of the Nazi's being bad and the allies being good, so it'll be a fairly respectful treatment of Churchill's side if not directly the man himself (wouldn't rule out a cameo though).

I hope they get Christian Slater to reprise his role as everyone's favourite gun-toting UK Prime Minister.

We have a trailer then.

I was planning to avoid all trailers, like I did for Age of Extinction, but it came up as the ad at the start of another Youtube video and I figured I could probably watch this one trailer, once, to whet my appetite without spoiling things. It got me excited at least!

SPOILER! (select to read)
Bad Prime!
Anthony Hopkins doing the old-guy-who-narrates-exposition thing!
A floaty planet monster that might be a bizarre Unicron!
Lennox!
Marky Mark looking buffer than ever!
King Arthur and Nazis!

It actually did the reverse for me, it pretty much killed what little interest I had in this brain dead series, from now I rank the live action Transformers movies as I do the DC movies as 100% shit that should end.

I thought it looked good until I thought "ohhh more mysterious mysteries from the past". I will totally be going to see this, whatever, so I'm not going to pretend otherwise, despite how inherently awful/ repetitive it will be. I'm at the stage where I just enjoy the spectacle and know I'm just going to see a whole bunch of guff dressed up with alien robot punch ups and explosions.I do hope that big ball of dandelion fluff isn't going to be Unicron. That'll be up there with the disappointing Galactus storm cloud from the FF movie.

Official movie poster reveal:

http://news.tfw2005.com/2016/12/13/t...evealed-329975

No excitement for this movie, but ooh, that tagline! Actually fitting since Optimus hasn't been the classic hero he is since the first film.

I really like the movie poster. It's the first one that isn't a mish-mash but beautifuly simple.

Maybe now that Ehren Kruger isn't writing these things they might be a little better.

Interview with Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

http://collider.com/transformers-5-p...obots-details/

Not earth-shatteringly enlightening, it's mostly just him droning on about 'mythology' like he's Chris Carter or something.

Oh, and

Oh shit Anthony Hopkins is in this movie? That was unexpected.

Not keeping up with the news at all, as you can imagine -- I've only watched the TV spots, and that bit caught me by surprise.

Thanks to Takara's toy packaging, we have some official artwork for Barricade (also Optimus and some others but we already know what they look like): pictures here in Seibertron.

Look at Barricade! Not sure I like the new face, but dang if those Protect and Serve knuckledusters aren't hilarious.
