First Transformers 5 footage is all about the big, the bad, and the batsh*t

Die-hard Transformers fans are excited to see the first footage from the fifth entry, also known as Transformers: The Last Knight (opens in new tab). Heck, even those moviegoers who aren't big on Michael Bay's 'bot actioners are intrigued. Why? There's not just your standard car transformers to get giddy about this time around. King Arthur is involved (opens in new tab), for one, which might seem like a stretch at first. But lest we forget: the last entry that made dinobots a thing.  

With word that a trailer is about to land very, very soon, Paramount has released an IMAX promo that includes our first proper footage from the sequel. See how many WTF? moments you can spot (The Last Knight footage starts at around 1:18): 

Here's all the cool bits I saw: Mark Wahlberg, dangling from a car, in what appears to be London. Anthony Hopkins hanging out at Stonehenge. King Arthur's men striding forth valiantly and getting blown up. Miscellaneous explosions. A massive bank vault blown to smithereens.  

Did I miss anything? 

Directed by Michael Bay and starring Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Jerrod Carmichael, Santiago Cabrera, Anthony Hopkins, and Peter Cullen, Transformers: The Last Knight will roll into cinemas on June 23, 2017.
