Sorry if my tweets don't make much sense. I've been diagnosed with a terminal case of non sequitur pudding is a funny word.

[edit]

Synopsis: Autobots and Decepticons are at war, with humans on the sidelines. 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.


Reaction: Better than the previous one. Still too long, but more enjoyable.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Writer Matt Holloway is a fan of the drama [Downton Abbey], and jokingly said that Jim Carter (who plays the butler Mr. Carson in the show) should voice Cogman. He was shocked when Michael Bay got Carter signed on as Cogman.
  • Steve Buscemi voiced Daytrader in this film. Michael Bay had wanted Steve Buscemi to play Agent Simmons in Transformers, but he was unavailable.
  • Cogman is classified as a Headmaster, a Transformer that serves as a head for a larger robot. Although he does not carry this out in the film, a toy of his was released, showcasing this ability.
  • The scenes of Sir Edmund Burton visiting 10 Downing Street were filmed at the actual office of the British Prime Minister in October 2016.
  • With a budget of $217 million dollars, the most expensive Transformers at the time of release.
  • Michael Bay said that this will be the last [Transformers] film he will direct, for the moment. He is open to doing more films in the future, if he gets a good story.
  • Michael Bay originally wanted to pass on directing this film, but was persuaded to do one more by Peter Cullen.
  • Part of the film was shot at Stonehenge. Michael Bay requested to shoot an explosion on the location, but was denied, so he had a set of Stonehenge constructed to shoot the explosion.
  • Laura Haddock sent her video audition to director Michael Bay in the US and he was so impressed he traveled to London to meet with her to discuss the role. She later received a call from him with an offer of the part.
  • Ken Nolan wrote the role of Sir Edmund specifically for Sir Anthony Hopkins.
  • When Megatron first appears, General Morshower says he recognizes his voice. This might be an inside joke, since Megatron was voiced by Hugo Weaving in the first three films and subsequently by Frank Welker.
  • Hot Rod's French accent was Michael Bay's idea, as he thought it would give Hot Rod a unique character.
  • Despite his seeming death during Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the police car Decepticon Barricade returns, and has apparently survived up to the events of this movie, with a completely new design, including a new vehicle mode.
