Transformers: The Last Knight is a 2017 American Hollywood science fiction action film based on the Transformers toy line created by Hasbro. It is the fifth installment of the live-action Transformers film series and the sequel to 2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction. Like its predecessors, the film is directed by Michael Bay, featuring Mark Wahlberg returning from Age of Extinction, with Josh Duhamel, John Turturro and Glenn Morshower all reprising their roles from the first three films, and Laura Haddock and Anthony Hopkins joining the cast. Bay and Wahlberg have stated they will not return for another sequel.
The film premiered at Odeon Leicester Square in London on June 18, 2017, and was theatrically released in the United States on June 21, 2017, by Paramount Pictures in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D. Like its predecessors, the film received negative reviews from critics and, with an approval rating of 15% on Rotten Tomatoes, it is the worst-reviewed film of the series. While under-performed domestically, it has grossed over $604 million worldwide, making it the tenth highest-grossing film of 2017, but the lowest of the franchise.
A spin-off/prequel, entitled Bumblebee, is scheduled for release on December 21, 2018. An untitled sixth film, a direct sequel to The Last Knight, is set to release on June 28, 2019.
