I mean, it is pretty cool looking.
It’s always a strange day when I have something positive to say about Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise. Today is one of those days. Paramount just tweeted out this brand new banner image for their next rock em sock em robot rumble, Transformers: The Last Knight.
Alright, first thing’s first. I love this picture. It feels and looks so different from any thing else that’s come out of this dreadful franchise. Granted, it’s just a banner, but its retro design and aesthetic gives the poster a real throwback feel. With its over abundance of reds and blues, Optimus Prime’s redesign, his super fancy sword, and the giant robotic three-headed dragon, the poster just feels so 80s, and I kinda love it for that.
Now, to snap back to reality. This still a Michael Bay Transformers movie, so there is <1% chance of this movie being anything other than awful. But hey, it’s a pretty picture right?
We’ll all be able to check out this inevitable train wreck when it hits theaters June 23rd, 2017. Okay, how many of you are actually going?
