Did you really expect anything else?
Michael Bay directs it, Mark Wahlberg acts in it, GM provides a new Camaro for it. If you think this sounds an awful lot like the recipe for another high-budget CGI-laden Transformers film, you’re absolutely right. Slated for release later this year, the newest Transformers trailer has just dropped and as far as it seems, there will be more action, more explosions, and one sexy Chevy Camaro standing in as the icing on the cake. If this is your thing, then rejoice because there could be 14 more Transformers movies anyway.
If not then, well, at least stay for the Camaro because Transformers 5: The Last Knight seems like it’ll feature at least some of it. Years ago Chevy set the precedence for artfully previewing the 5th generation Camaro in the first Transformers movie, which painted in such a good light it may as well have been propaganda.
That’s no different here because Bumblebee has morphed to become a stylish Camaro we have yet to see in the real world, boasting a that appears to be a natural evolution of the current car’s styling extended into the future. Lately the Transformers series has diverted its attention away from the cars and skewed in favor of artful and cinematic CGI explosions, dizzying action and tired good vs evil themes, all thinly veiling a semi-decent plot. The parts of the movie that do focus on the cars, however, seem spectacular. On camera we see that lovely Camaro and catch a glimpse of the Lamborghini Centenario. Whatever you do, don’t take those out Mr. Bay.
