There’s a new clip from ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’

And it sees Sir Anthony Hopkins using the word ‘dude’.

A new clip from ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ was revealed during the MTV Movie & TV Awards last night, and it’s pretty awesome. As you can see, it features the first meeting between Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) and the mysterious astronomer Sir Edmund Burton (Anthony Hopkins).

But let’s put it this way – it could have gone better.

Introducing the clip at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, ‘Transformers’ star Mark Wahlberg gave his own special synopsis of what the film is all about…

“It’s pretty simple,” he said. “Here’s the synopsis: Giant badass robots kicking the crap out of each other and I do some cool shit, too.”

Not exactly ‘Citizen Kane’, then…

Still, the explosive new clip gives us a tantalizing look at ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ and despite Wahlberg’s pretty trashy synopsis, it doesn’t look half bad. And it gives us a bit more of an idea about how Hot Rod fits into things.

After a brief exchange as Cade and Sir Edmund get acquainted, the scene is interrupted by the arrival of Hot Rod. It looks as though Sir Edmund forget to tell his daughter that he had various Transformers at his disposal… and didn’t tell her that the old car she’d been hiding away in her garage was actually a bot that’s been secretly guarding her.

“So, is this a kidnapping sort of situation or her first Transformers experience?” asks Cade.

“It’s both, really,” replies Sir Edmund.

As we know, Hot Rod has been secretly watching over Sir Edmund Burton’s daughter, while disguised as a 1963 Citroen DS. Clearly, he managed to get one hell of an upgrade before this scene, and after turning into a Lamborghini Centenario, he brings Professor Wembly (Laura Haddock) to see her father.

Even if she doesn’t have any idea what’s going on.

‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ stars Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins, Isabela Moner, Gemma Chan, Peter Cullen and Frank Weller.

Michael Bay directed the film based on a script by Art Meachum, Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan.

‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ heads to cinemas on 23 June 2017.
