Here’s another ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ trailer (and posters) to confuse you

Michael Bay brings his signature “everything in the shot must be moving and the camera must be moving and something must also be exploding” style back to the Transformers franchise. He keeps promising to stop making these. I wish he would.

Watch This Stop-Motion Transformers Battle And Forget About Michael Bay

 

Optimus

If you’re of a certain age, the modern Transformers films leave a very bitter taste in the mouth. Michael Bay’s re-imagining of the classic characters has robots with ridiculous racial stereotypes, body designs that are far too busy to be memorable, and fights that largely leave you confused and disorientated.
