The fifth “Transformers” flick gets a title — and it’s not “Michael Bay’s Fun-Time Explosion Adventure”

in Entertainment, Movies

There’s been a decent amount of talk about Michael Bay returning to direct a fifth Transformers movie, and it looks like it finally has a title.

According to Michael Bay’s Instagram, which I imagine are just a series of explosion selfies, the film will be titled Transformers: The Last Knight. I’m calling it right now: Optimus prime finds out that he is the last *something something* knight of the Prime lineage and, in turn, is the only one who can stop *something something* bad guy robot from going exploder-mode on everything and killing all humans.

If I’m right, you all owe me a Coke Zero. Or a high five. I accept both.

It has been said that Mark Wahlberg is set to return for the fifth, sixth and seventh films in 2017, 2018 and 2019. That’s a lot of Wahlberg, but at least we don’t have to deal with Shia Labeouf and his wacky weird parents anymore — remember those dogs? I try to forget.

But seriously, despite my snark, I mostly enjoy the franchise. I don’t think it’s Masterpiece Theatre by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s good popcorn fun, despite the second movie being weirdly racist and explosively condescending. But we don’t talk about “Skids and Mudflap” anymore.

So what do you think this new name means for the franchise? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

    Bay didn’t want to come back, but Paramount got him back in the hopes they could now, quote, “link-universe” it with other Transformers-clone Hasbro properties they want to make.
    If this isn’t trying to plant would-be “Marvel-style” hints and crowbar open the door for an already announced ROM: the Space Knight movie, I’ll make it a Cherry Coke Zero with an ice cream float.

    I’ve only seen the first two movies, thought that the first movie was fine on its own, and enjoyed the ride at Universal so my knowledge of the “Transformers” movies at this point is somewhat limited. Then again, opinion on Michael Bay is somewhat of a love-hate thing.

    Like you mentioned, it’s good popcorn fun even if I have a bucket of issues with the second movie. If you’re right on what this one is going to be, though, I’ll toss over a Coke Raspberry and deliver a slam-dunk high-ten.

    Personally, I would absolutely like the twins, Mudflap and Skids back on the franchise despite the controversy from “Revenge of the Fallen”.
