Anthony Hopkins Is Pretty Chill in This New ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Clip
With the recent announcement that Transformers: The Last Knight would be hitting theaters two days earlier — moving from Friday, June 23 to Wednesday, June 21 — fans are closer than ever to seeing their favorite Autobots (and humans) throw down against a reluctantly evil Optimus Prime. This is the summer of heel turns by beloved franchise characters; first we saw Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto betray his family in The Fate of the Furious, and now we’re counting down the days until Optimus Prime stabs Bumblebee in the face. Rough summer for heroes, it would seem.
And thanks to Sunday’s MTV Awards, we have another look at the looming apocalypse that the Autobots must face. The latest clip features Anthony Hopkins and Mark Wahlberg’s characters meeting for the first time, and while there’s giant robots and transformations and yada yada yada, the most important part of this clip is how long Hopkins drags out the “duuuuude” at the end of the sentence. I’m not saying that Transformers: The Last Knight is worth the price of admission just for this, but that’s a pretty great tease. Dude.
Here’s the full plot synopsis for Transformers: The Last Knight:
The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager; Bumblebee; an English Lord; and an Oxford Professor.
The robust cast of the latest Transformers movie also includes Gemma Chan, John Turturro, Stanley Tucci, and Josh Duhamel, as well as the voices of Ken Watanabe and John Goodman. Transformers: The Last Knight will transform theaters on June 23, 2017.
