Transformers: The Last Knight brings in $5.5 million in previews

Why Mark Wahlberg is leaving Transformers

There are two type of gritty and they are very much different takes: There is Nolan-esque Dark Knight or the Logan claws-through-the-face, neither of which feel like they would fit the patriotic fireworks and fun-factor of the Transformers franchise.

United States actor Josh Duhamel, who played William Lennox in the first three films (Transformers, Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen and Transformers: Dark Side Of The Moon) and returns in TLK, thought otherwise.

Love or hate his work, and there are many good arguments on both sides, the return of Optimus Prime and company will probably add the better part of a billion dollars to Bay's box-office total.

It's unlikely that The Last Knight's reviews will affect its performance, as the franchise has been hit with critical derision throughout its run, but this entry seems particularly dismal compared to the others, with many calling it busy an headache-inducing.

Talks about making the film and the challenges of making a Transformers movie. If you look at it this way, The Last Knight is the worst one yet. The insane thing is it seems to have made those existing problems even worse. Let us know what you think.

"This is what the end looks like", yells a sword-wielding warrior at the beginning of the fifth Michael Bay film inspired by the Hasbro toy line where alien robots morph into jet planes, articulated trucks and sports cars.

Cuba rejects new US policy, saying pressure will not work
If Trump decides to keep up the Obama-era policies towards Cuba , he could face some significant backlash from Republican Rep. Presidents who have been successful in achieving their foreign policy goals sometimes are described as having a doctrine.

Some enjoyable Cogman scenes: When he randomly attacks Yeager, when he has road rage in the middle of a vehicle chase (while Burton gives chasing Decepticons the middle finger), and when our heroes are in a submarine (yes, there are submarines in this movie) and Cogman catches fish for Yeager and Wembley and we watch as the machine beats the hell out of the fish before serving them.

See you at the movies!

As a matter of fact, "Transformers" is expanding into spinoff territory: "Bumblebee", based on the yellow-and-black Autobot that's been a fan favorite, is planned for 2018 if Bay and his team can get it done by then. This is certainly a recommendation if audiences hope to see a picture for its phenomenal cinematic footage, and after Bay and Sela's decision to shoot 98% of the movie through IMAX 3D cameras, viewers will definitely see why.

Transformers: The Last Knight is now in theaters.

Meanwhile, the U.S. premiere of "The Last Knight" was held June 20, one day before the film's release.

Overall, I give Transformers: The Last Knight 0.5 out of 4 stars.

R-ratings mean big business these days, with Deadpool and Logan being two prime examples of what happens when you get it right. We certainly enjoyed it over here at SD Entertainer and are confident you will too.
