Transformers 5 The Last Knight
Santiago Cabrera Describes Transformers: The Last Knight Role In New Interview
RAC - Monday, January 23, 2017

Actor Santiago Cabrera has given an interview to Sabado, or Saturday, the weekly magazine of Chilean newspaper El Mercurio. He talks about the process of getting his part in Transformers: The Last Knight as well as some specifics of the role and the possibility of returning in the next film. Keep reading, but be advised of light SPOILERS.
Cabrera goes to a casting for a movie that interests him. While reading the script, the casting director - who already knew him - puts on a strange face, which he translates as "this role is not for you, but I like what you're doing." Then she says:

- I'll pass another project that may interest you: Transformers 5.

"Did he interest you immediately?" Did not prejudices arise?

"I acknowledge that I had prejudices. When she told me, and she is a director who does good-good things, in my mind was: "Transformers number how much?". I had not seen one.

Transformers 5: The Last Knight, which opens June 23, is Cabrera's first blockbuster. The film, he says, will be a huge showcase for him: one-fourth grossed over $ 1 billion worldwide and now similar figures are expected, with a cast featuring Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro and John Goodman.

-Transformers is an opportunity for an actor, because there is a possibility that your name is there and then open other doors or fund projects. But I was also interested in the archetype of the character and the work we did with the American special forces to prepare me. It was a great experience and is the biggest I've done, because they have also put me in the group of protagonists - says about the film in which he will play a retired military man who is now a mercenary and who leads a squadron called TRF that fights the Threat of the Transformers. If all goes well, he says, his character could be in the sixth part of the franchise.

In order to work on the film, which finished filming on December 10, the actor had to interview Michael Bay, director of the series and known for films such as Armageddon or Pearl Harbor. Initially, the meeting would be in his office, but at the last moment decided to do it at home. There they talked for a while in the garden, until Bay said:

"Let's do a couple of scenes, shall we read some?"

Cabrera was not expecting it.

I stopped, read the texts, told me a few things and then said, "Already, we are, now I have to go talk to Anthony Hopkins on Skype," and he left. From her reaction, I thought she had not been much impressed, but the casting director looked at me and thumbs up.

The results are in for the 38th Golden Raspberry Awards. Transformers: The Last Knight carried nominations in several categories, surely to the surprise of no one who was actually paying attention. But despite all its charms, TLK was up against some tough competition, especially from the incredibly ill-conceived Emoji Movie. The results can either be seen as an affirmation of victory over anyone trying to highlight its flaws, or a crushing blow that it wasn't even bad enough to win here, but The Last Knight walked away without taking a single raspberry. If you're interested in the complete results, you can check out the video below.
Weibo user NOTRAB has posted a gallery of upcoming Studio Series Leader class Grimlock! The new-mold figure is a significant visual upgrade compared to the original 2014 Leader mold. While we might wish for more color, we can't rightly pin that on Hasbro as these figures are designed to be as screen-accurate as they can possibly be. Keep reading to see the photos, mirrored here for convenience!

Read on to see them all in the gallery below.

Hollywood wants to love the the fans, they really really do. But they don't seem to know how when they keep putting too many humans in robot movies. Five movies on, they have literally run this franchise over a cliff. Knights, Unicron horns and even Cogman couldn't save them, It made $500 Million, but raked in a lot the slag with it. The legendary fan force that is Screen Junkies. Takes aim at TLK with their barrel fusion-cannons. Leaving a steaming pile of bashes, laughing all the way.
