Pssst! You guys! I hope y’all aren’t already burnt out on watching TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT trailers because the newest is THE BEST of the bunch. While I did find a lot of value in the last, female-centric, girl-powered trailer from a few weeks ago, this latest trailer FINALLY gives us exactly what we’ve wanted to see all along: an exciting balance of narrative between the humans and robots.

Legacy, lore and a Lord are all featured in what’s going to be one of the biggest sequels of the Summer. This seems like it’s director Michael Bay’s most ambitious effort yet, both from a storytelling standpoint and a technological one as well. Basically, you’ll want to see this on the biggest screen possible.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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 (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
