Transformers: The Last Knight Virtual Reality Experience Begins Tomorrow!
BaCon - Thursday, June 29, 2017


Renowned director makes first foray into virtual reality platform, offering battling robot game free to fans through IMAX partnership at select AMC Theatres® locations in NYC and Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fans of the Transformers movie franchise will finally know what it’s like to battle a Decepticon up close and personal, as film director Michael Bay takes VR to the next level with “Transformers: The Last Knight” VR Experience, Friday, June 30 for a limited time, free of charge, only in the IMAX VR centres at AMC Kips Bay 15 in New York City and across from The Grove in Los Angeles and in select AMC Theatres lobbies.

“I wanted to do something special for fans, to let them feel what it’s like to be in the middle of intense Transformers action,” commented Mr. Bay. “ILMxLAB was a great partner in delivering this experience, and pushing the envelope of what VR can do.”


The five-minute virtual reality game was produced by Mr. Bay in collaboration with the team from San Francisco-based ILMxLAB, in cooperation with Paramount Pictures, and provides the HTC Headset single-player experience of actually joining the hero Autobots and facing off against the Decepticons in a fast-paced shooter game. The result is a VR showdown putting fans right into the intense action of the Transformers movie franchise.

“We are thrilled to deliver ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ VR Experience to AMC guests in New York and Southern California,” said Elizabeth Frank, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Programming & Chief Content Officer, AMC Theatres. “The VR experience produced by Michael Bay is a wonderful way for our guests to immerse themselves in the Transformers world, and it is a perfect complement to our IMAX VR at AMC Kips Bay 15 VR Centre.”

“Transformers: The Last Knight” VR Experience will be available beginning Friday, June 30, free of charge, ONLY at the IMAX VR Centre across from The Grove in Los Angeles and at the IMAX VR Centre at AMC Kips Bay 15 in New York City, as well as AMC Theatres locations in New York City at the AMC 34th Street and AMC Lincoln Square 13 and at the AMC Orange 30 in Southern California. This is a limited run, only available in these theaters and these two existing IMAX VR centres.

“We’ve been longtime partners with Paramount and Michael Bay on the Transformers franchise, and look forward to delivering this exciting new experience in IMAX VR,” said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp.

The “Transformers: The Last Knight” VR Experience is a single-player, fast-paced VR shooter game that teams you with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Hound to recover a powerful weapon from the Decepticons. The player must work to protect and securely transport the weapon in order to prevent the destruction of a nearby metropolis. The experience opens with you in immediate peril, pressured by Decepticons attempting to steal back the weapon. Battling and racing through the countryside and then the outskirts of town, you are ultimately pinned down for a final climactic showdown.

You can't tell me that Transformers The Last Knight wouldn't have been more entertaining if the movie's conflict was resolved by a rap battle between ...well, anyone really. But for purposes of argument I'm gonna go with Nitro Zeus and Cogman. Unfortunately that didn't happen. But to promote the Leader Class Megatron and Calibur Optimus Prime, TakaraTomy did engage the services of two Japanese rappers to extol the virtues of the two toys in a rap battle. It's all in Japanese, naturally, but it's more than hilarious enough to be worth a look. You'll find the video embedded in the full post just below!
The robots in disguise are visiting in Sioux Falls on Wednesday. Optimus Prime and several other characters from the Transformer films are visiting two Sioux Falls Walmarts to promote the most-recent film in the series, "Transformers: The Last Knight." The retail tour is a partnership between Hasbro and Walmart.
