It doesn’t look like things are going to be going well for the Autobots in Transformers: The Last Knight. The recent trailer showed Optimus Prime and Bumblebee fighting, and now the first poster shows Prime standing, sword in hand, standing over what looks to be the corpse of his yellow (former) friend.
Quite what’s going on between them hasn’t been announced, but with Dom going against him crew in yesterday’s Fast & Furious 8 trailer, it seems like next year there will be a lot of sequels trying to intrigue us with suggestions that who is a goodie and who’s a baddie might be changing. As the Transformers poster says, ‘Rethink Your Heroes’.
Not a huge amount if known about the plot, except that it involve time travel, and will somehow manage to bring the robots together with King Arthur, Nazis and new dinobots, with Optimus Prime needing to find an artifact on Earth that may be able to bring Cybertron back to life. So perhaps the other Autobots aren’t so keen on finding that artifacts, although the trailer suggested that whatever the object is, it’s why the bots keep ending up on Earth.
