Transformers 5 The Last Knight
Paramount Launches its First Augmented Reality Experience Featuring Content from Transformers: The Last Knight
BaCon - Tuesday, November 21, 2017


In Conjunction with the Release of Transformers: The Last Knight on 4K Ultra HD,
Free Mobile App Lets Users Play as Popular BUMBLEBEE Character

App Created by Viacom NEXT using Apple® ARKit Technology

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (November 21, 2017) — Paramount Home Media Distribution today unveiled a free augmented reality experience for iOS app users, coinciding with the release of Transformers: The Last Knight on 4K Ultra HD. Created by Viacom’s VR team Viacom NEXT using Apple ARKit technology, the app incorporates content from the latest film in the blockbuster series, Transformers: The Last Knight.

The app overlays 3D graphics onto a user’s surrounding physical space, designed as the virtual junkyard of protagonist Cade Yeager as seen in Transformers: The Last Knight. Players control the actions of BUMBLEBEE, directing his movement while hitting, blowing up and interacting with various objects, which can be added to expand the interactive environment.

“This augmented reality experience gives fans the chance to interact with the Transformers universe in a new and exciting way,” said Howard Hsieh, Vice President, Worldwide Digital Business Development, Paramount Home Media Distribution. “The Transformers films appeal to a vast and diverse audience and we’re excited to give fans the opportunity to get in the driver’s seat and take BUMBLEBEE for a ride.”



“With ARKit, we can seamlessly bridge virtual and physical worlds to create immersive experiences that bring storytelling to life,” said Chaki Ng, Senior Vice President of Viacom NEXT. “We’re thrilled to help break this new ground at Paramount.”

The experience is free to download from the App Store until February 20, 2018. Users can also order Transformers: The Last Knight on 4K HDR through the app. The Transformers 5-movie Collection will also be available on 4K HDR for purchase exclusively on iTunes beginning November 21, 2017.

More Transformers 5 The Last Knight News
A recent feature list on the online version of Rolling Stone sought to line up the ten worst films of 2017, Many choices seemed quite fitting, with few at least marginally surprising even just for where they scored on the list, if not their presence there to start with. But it's probably not that much of a leap that they gave the number one spot on the list to none other than Transformers: The Last Knight. While some fans might point to it as being on the better end of the series, that speaks very little for its quality in the larger arena of movies in general. Keep reading for a quick excerpt and link back to the Rolling Stone page.
From the website of artist Furio Tedeschi we have some new pieces of The Last Knight concept art from various stages of design. What made this latest batch stand out as interesting was how a number of pieces, such as some of the knight designs, showed clear traces of what would go in to the toyline, possibly marking a few of these pieces as part of the starting point for the design of things like Dragonstorm. Another treat is a few photos of those knight designs as physical set elements from the sound stages - parts of which I personally got to view up close in August of 2016! Keep reading to take a look through the mirrored images!
Greg "M Sipher" Sepelak reported on Twitter that he found two of the presumed-Walmart Exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight "Autobots Unite" Two-Packs on sale at Ross! For those not familiar with the chain, Ross is one of a number of discount store chains in the US - along with TJ Maxx, Marshall's, and Ollie's - where Transformers items show up with a certain regularity. If you see them, a pair of Legion class figures will run you $5, and a pair of Turbo Changers will run you $12. Keep reading for the photographic proof, mirrored here for convenience.
We reported in September that the release of TLK-29 Cogman, originally planned for the end of October, had been delayed with no followup release date given. It's taken a while, but we finally have some good news on this story. An update has been posted by TakaraTomy, and Cogman is back on the schedule. If you were counting on the Japanese release to bring you one of the best toys the Transformers The Last Knight line has to offer, it looks like you're back in business! Click through for the updated release details!
Our anonymous Walmart insider has once again provided us with a new photo! This time, we've got a "PDQ" display of Transformers: The Last Knight Premier Deluxes for the holidays. And - it's so sad to say this is an improvement - it features the second wave of Deluxes, featuring Slug, Sqweeks, Drift, and Steelbane! Hopefully this is just the start and Hasbro won't be leaving money on the table by leaving Cogman's wave so difficult to find. Keep reading for the photo!
