The film's script is purported to uncover the hidden history of the Transformers on Earth over the past hundreds of years, and the latest poster gives a hint towards what the Transformers might have been up to in the Middle Ages.

Supported by the intriguing tagline, "They've been here forever," the latest poster for Transformers: The Last Knight makes for quite the impressive spectacle in and of itself.
