CinemaCon Round-Up - What You Might See From Transformers The Last Knight
by BaCon March 28, 2017
As you read this, CinemaCon is in full swing in Las Vegas, Nevada through March 30th. This is the event where movie producers and studios give us their first looks at what they are working on for the year to come. Many Transformers fans are wondering what's happening with the Last Knight. We are glad to be able to offer you some insights on what's being shown at CinemaCon as we speak. Read on for our round up of what attendees have in store for them.
Paramount Studios are there to offer their first previews of the "Transformers The Last Knight" with an extended look at more than 20 minutes of IMAX footage from the movie that will be out on June 23rd. TFormers was fortunate to be at special event that pre-viewed the CinemaCon material and have written a report on our visit with Paramount and BayFilms.
Based on what I have seen in the IMAX previews. The Last Knight brings together the struggle of all sentient beings throughout the Universe. Michael Bay's new work takes a fresh look at what it means to be alive - to believe in the freedom for all. In drawing parallels between the past, present and future. The Last Knight takes a deep look at how technology plays a pivotal role in leveling the odds in the battle between good and evil. By highlighting the contrast between medieval technology and the ultra-futuristic technology of the Transformers. Michael Bay offers an epic view on war, tyranny and the fight against oppression as the challenge shared by humans and beings across the Universe.
There are more interesting bits from CinemaCon to be seen. Two of which are the new posters that were released for the movie and the IMAX experience. Both offering some interesting teasers for those who are willing to look deeper into the presentation.
The first is the CinemaCon floor poster. The wide format movie promo shows the supposed Autobot Leader, based on the slogan "Rethink Your Heroes". While Optimus Prime is looking to the right, we get a landscape view showing some hints at various wreckage or spaceships of a possible Cybertronian origin.
The other IMAX poster is even more interesting, but still mysterious as it offers some graphical queues that could be very revealing or just nice designs. We can only speculate at this point who or what the figures are on the golden shield. The planet at the top appears to be attacking another planet. Could this be a reference to our favorite planet eater, Unicron? Additionally, there's a curious presentation of what may or may not be Transformers characters leading non-transformers characters. Could these be the faction leaders joining forces, or something else? It is not really sure, but the slogan "Every Legend Hides a Secret" suggests there is more than meets the eye to this poster.
CinemaCon is still going on and we're hoping there's still more news to come from the event. Keep it dialed to TFormers for any new updates as they happen.
