The 52-year old director admitted that the movies in the franchise are “massive movies” that “take a lot out of you”.
Opening June 23, Transformers: The Last Knight stars franchise veterans Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro, joined by newcomers Isabela Moner, Liam Garrigan, Jerrod Carmichael, Mitch Pileggi, Laura Haddock, Santago Cabrera and Anthony Hopkins. As reported by Fandango, Transformers: The Last Knight is set to hit theaters, and it is being labeled as the “final chapter”, which it isn’t.
Bay has directed all four films in the Transforms movie franchise so far. Even if most of his movies go out with a bang.
Asked if he would finally be stepping away from the Transformers films, Bay said: “I’ve done it enough, and I’ve had a great time doing it”. Mark Wahlberg, who has starred in the last two installments of the series, told us he’s constantly amazed at the way Bay has put these movies together. “That seems like a fun one to do”, he said. As revealed above, Bay has shot almost 98% of the film with IMAX cameras, which should immediately make seeing this film, on the absolute biggest screen possible, an absolute must. “I’m the type that believes if you’re going to do 3D, you shoot it in real 3D”, he says. “I think I’ve had a good run, and I’ve got a lot of other movies I want to do”. “I love doing 13 Hours, I love doing Pain & Gain – I think it’ll be something more serious and more adult, I guess”.
Transformers: The Last Knight tickets are live and can be bought anywhere across the USA the film releases later this month on June 21.
Wahlberg had recently filmed Patriots Day before Transformers 5, which required a totally different body shape; and quite the transition. Assuming Wahlberg’s comments can be taken at face-value, that means that the franchise will be introducing its third human protagonist, in Transformers 6.
