Video: A new trailer for the fifth Transformers movie is here, and boy... are many, many things happening in it. I'd say it contains a 60/40 per cent ratio of explosions to outright gibberish, which indicates to me that it may be the wildest Transformers movie since Dark of the Moon. Judge for yourself.

For years, Michael Bay has teased us with the possibility that he might leave the Transformers franchise that he's nurtured into regular explosion-fests that we have come to, well, not love, but expect. The director has just announced that The Last Knight will be his final Transformers movie, and you shouldn't believe it now anymore than you did before.
Universal has bought Michael Bay's new future dystopia project Little America. The movie is apparently set the near-future where a Trump-like president has bankrupted the country, China has called in its debts, and Americans are migrating to China looking for work. It's also being described as "sci-fun." I have some questions.
All the stories you've heard about a Michael Bay film set are true. It's fast, loud, intense and frankly, it's kind of amazing. Six cameras shoot simultaneously, ranging from 2D to IMAX 3D. Dozens of real Navy SEALS pour out of a crashed ship. Hundreds of live rounds are being fired. Several massive explosions go off. All on behalf of Transformers: The Last Knight.
Video: A few months ago, it was reported that Michael Bay cast a poor shelter pup named Freya in the fifth Transformers movie, after reading about her in a UK newspaper. Now the film has released a whole featurette about her starring role, which will no doubt be as exciting as Optimus fighting a dragon and whatever other shenanigans will go on in the film.
This past Thursday, director Michael Bay introduced a new robot that will be joining his upcoming Transformers movie, The Last Knight. Some fans were quite upset at the addition of this tiny, goofy-looking Autobot to the Transformer movie pantheon, and I have a question for those fans: Really? (I also have a follow-up question: Really?!)
Michael Bay has a bad habit of seeing something — in a newspaper, on TV, whatever — and suddenly deciding that something needs to go in his next movie, regardless of whether it makes sense or not. For instance, after watching a 60 Minutes segment on wingsuits, Bay forced a lengthy scene featuring them in Transformers 3. Now he's done it again, but with a much happier result.
Video: Instead of making the Marky Mark Transformers sequel, Michael Bay should have just sent in this sick, non-stop supercut of every single robot fight scene from the Transformers trilogy to theatres. Yep. This video is an orgy of explosive metal on metal battle scenes without any of the pesky humans screwing it up. I would love to see this IMAX.
I love Transformers. I don't mean the toys, the cartoons, the comics, any of that stuff. I mean the new Transformers, the Michael Bay Transformers. I know this is an unpopular opinion. But as far as I'm concerned, Transformers first came to life in Michael Bay's series. And it is therefore the best Transformers until something better comes along to replace it.
