Video: Never let it be said that Michael Bay is not a man without a very well-defined directorial sensibility. Michael Bay is extremely good at being Michael Bay, and the minute you start watching a Michael Bay movie you know exactly what you're in for. This is extremely true of Transformers: The Last Knight.

Remember 10 years ago when director Michael Bay took the simply designed cartoon Transformers of the '80s and made them into ultra-complex, shiny beings with so many moving parts they made no sense? Well, what Bay did to the Transformers themselves is what he's done to the fifth film in the franchise, The Last Knight.
Did you see Michael Bay's fifth movie in the disturbingly profitable Transformers franchise this weekend? Did you have a question about it, besides "Why is this movie about giant robots and explosions so boring?" Our patented Spoiler FAQ has all the answers you need and also probably several you didn't.
The promise of Transformers: The Last Knight has been that it's going to shed light on the secret history of Transformers. Seeing as most of the other films in Michael Bay's franchise haven't exactly overflowed with a fidelity to continuity, that's going to be interesting. Has everything we've seen been massively confusing and contradictory? Yes. Yes it has. Have I tried to wrestle it into some sort of shape anyway? Yes.
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?!)
