As the Transformers franchise continues, the robots in disguise have constantly undergone changes to their looks. While marketing is likely a factor to the evolution of the robots designs, it is also a way to bring in the newest versions of cars that are being released each year. In the first Transformers, Bumblebee changed his look twice to go from a rust bucket to a brand new Camaro. He is being upgraded to a custom 2016 Camaro, and recently was spotted with Mark Wahlberg and Laura Haddock on the set of Transformers: The Last Knight.
Filming has continued in London since the previous set photos hit, which means more chances for people to catch a of the production. Now, more photos from the set of Transformers: The Last Knight have been posted with a focus on the new cars taking the street.
ComingSoon has revealed the newest set photos with Bumblebee's new car once again being shown. While no actors were spotted during the course of the filming, many other cars were on hand for the shoot that day. Returning Transformers such as Drift, Barricade, and Crosshairs. There may not be much to learn about the plot of the movie with these set photos, but car enthusiasts should enjoy the multiple looks at each vehicle.
Given the lack of actors on set, or any video of what was being shot, an action scene is a plausible conclusion. Michael Bay loves big action sequences with plenty of explosions and the presence of both Autobots and Decepticons could point to a chase scene. The Transformers franchise has featured plenty of car chases on various continents, but London would be a new place to put the focus of a major action scene in this blockbuster.
Transformers: Age of Extinction noticeably included a large presence for China, and it resulted in a financial boon for the movie. Foreign box-office numbers are becoming more and more important to studios and after establishing a bigger following in China, they could be turning their attention to the European market. This may be the case, especially given rumored plot details tying into some of the oldest stories overseas. The franchise has continued to travel the globe throughout each film so this may just be the next step in their plan to travel the world.
Transformers: The Last Knight opens in U.S. theaters on June 23, 2017, followed by the Bumblebee spin-off on June 8, 2018, and Transformers 6 on June 28, 2019.
