The first official teaser trailer for Paramount Pictures’ Transformers: The Last Knight debuted during the December 5, 2016 Monday Night Football game on ESPN. The studio revealed the new trailer along with two taglines that will likely recur throughout the advertising campaign. The first declares the film will feature “two species at war – one flesh, one metal.” The second tagline sounds like it could fit any war movie, including those that don’t involve transforming robots: “Without sacrifice, there can be no victory.” Both are used in the opening voice-over by Sir Anthony Hopkins in the first-look trailer.
Directed by Michael Bay, the fifth film of the Transformers franchise stars Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Laura Haddock, Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, and Anthony Hopkins. Paramount’s aiming for a June 23, 2017 theatrical release.
