'Transformers: The Last Knight'

The fifth epic installment in American director Michael Bay's Transformers franchise, "The Last Knight" reportedly involves Optimus Prime using a mysterious, ancient power hidden on Earth to reawaken his home planet of Cybertron. According to American actor Mark Wahlberg, once again reprising the role of Cade, the script offered a welcome shakeup.

"I was pleasantly surprised, you want to do something different and being this kind of 'man on the run' adventure story is a nice departure from what we did before," Wahlberg told Collider. "It introduces new cool characters and Cade’s got this great relationship with this smart, sophisticated English woman and that creates a lot of humor."

A truly international production, filming sites included Cuba, the United States, Ireland, Norway and even the ancient megaliths of Stonehenge.

"Transformers: The Last Knight" will be released on June 23, 2017.
