Poor Anthony Hopkins just can’t get away from robots these days. The first season of Westworld just ended, and now he’s taking on Cybertronians in Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight. This first teaser for the highly anticipated sequel (very highly anticipated) doesn’t actually show the award-winning Shakespearean actor much, but his voiceover makes one thing very clear: Tony Hopkins is in this Transformers movie, and there’s nothing we can do about it.
Hopkins aside, The Last Knight also features Stanley Tucci, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, and Bumblebee. Also, Optimus Prime is apparently dead and/or evil? And Dinobots lived alongside medieval knights? There’s a lot going on here, as there is in any Transformers movie, but the fact that this trailer features Anthony Hopkins saying the name “Optimus Prime” seems pretty damn special all on its own.
The Last Knight will transform and roll out into theaters on June 23, 2017.
