‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Cryptic Promo Teases Big Reveal Next Week

optimus prime last knight copySpinoff Online reveals some advance marketing and hints for the upcoming fifth live-action Transformers film.

The cameras haven’t yet begun to roll on Michael Bay’s fifth “Transformers” film, but the marketing machine is already kicking into high gear.

Paramount Pictures has released a cryptic 19-second promo that suggests we could see the first big reveal for “Transformers: The Last Knight” on Tuesday. The staticky video, which debuted across social media, depicts a torn U.S. State Department document, and is accompanied by a transmission in Morse Code that says, “I’m coming for you May 31.”

In case that’s not ominous enough, the caption on Twitter adds, “Something wicked this way comes.” We can presume whatever is coming next week will be related to the film’s main villain. Could that be Unicron — or is that too much to hope for?

Starring Mark Wahlberg, who will reprise his role as Cade Yeager from “Age of Extinction,” “Transformers: The Last Knight” arrives in theaters June 23, 2017.

TILL ALL ARE ONE Will Be ‘The Most Human Of All TRANSFORMERS Books’

Till all are oneTransformers is about giant robots that can change into vehicles and other forms, but its finest moments are when these would-be automotons show their own kind of humanity. And in the new ongoing series Transformers: Till All Are One debuting this June, writer Mairghread Scott is looking to make it the most human story yet.

Set on Cybertron and the political in-fighting between Starscream and Windblade to craft a new era for Transformers on Cybertron and beyond, the series has a broader scope than any Transformers series before. Picking up thematically from her last series, Transformers: Windblade, Scott and artist Sara Pitre-Durocher are looking to delve deeper into the heart of being a Transformer.
