Are you devastated that July 4th is over? Did you not get see enough explosions and fireworks to truly celebrate the birth of this great nation? If that's true, then you're in luck, because Michael Bay has your back. Not only has the bombastic director provided us with a pretty amazing picture from the production of Transformers: The Last Knight, but he celebrated July 4th in the only way he knows how: by blowing shit up. Repeatedly. You can take a gander at it below.
Even the most ferocious Michael Bay critic has to admit that looks pretty awesome. In fact, the only thing that's missing from the above image is the American flag, which is disappointingly absent. I can only imagine that throughout the day's production on July 4th, Michael Bay was draped in the stars and stripes while God Bless America played repeatedly over a megaphone to simply inspire. One can only hope that was the case, anyway.
The image clearly showcases one of the numerous battle scenes that will make up Transformers: The Last Knight, while it also appears to include several FBI or CIA agents who are under siege from what we can only assume are the Decepticons. However, they could just as easily be having a tussle with the Autobots, because Transformers: Age Of Extinction did revolve around the American government trying to hunt down all of the Robots in Disguise following the near destruction of Chicago in Dark Of The Moon. The fact that Optimus Prime and his best buddies then helped to save the world, again, in Age Of Extinction should have helped to restore their reputation, though.
As per usual Michael Bay has been doing an impressive job of keeping Transformers fans up to date with The Last Knight's production, uploading pretty much daily pictures to his Instagram account that have shown his various trials and tribulations on the set. However, there are still plenty of secrets surrounding the production, so it may be a while until we learn anything particularly juicy.
The Last Knight is a merging of the Shia LaBeouf and Mark Wahlberg-led installments of the franchise. While LaBeouf isn't returning for obvious reasons, Wahlberg will lead The Last Knight, but this time around Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson, who were in earlier films from the series, will join him, while Jerrod Carmichael and Anthony Hopkins have also joined the cast. We'll get to see them all merge together when Transformers: The Last Knight is finally released on June 23, 2017.
