Mark Wahlberg Matches Wits With an Oxford Professor (and Cogman!) in a New ‘Transformers 5’ Clip
Transformers: The Last Knight has everything: bad Optimus Prime, King Arthur, planets crashing into other planets, giant flying machines, a robot dinosaur (hey there, Grimlock), Anthony Hopkins somehow taking it all seriously. A new clip featured on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, introduces Hopkins’ character, along with Laura Haddock as an Oxford professor, and their loyal assistant Cogman(!).
If you’d rather watch the movie clip and not Mark Wahlberg and Fallon talking about how much they want to get knighted, skip to 2:05. Honestly, I love how the Transformers universe continues to view women as both smarter and more attractive than everyone else. Professor Vivian Wembley is not impressed with Cade Yaeger (every time I remember that that’s his character’s actual name, my heart grows three sizes) and his “inventions,” and when Cade takes offense, Cogman springs forward to defend Wembley’s honor.
Here’s the movie’s official synopsis:
When all seems lost, a few brave souls can save everything we’ve ever known. The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock). There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters June 21.
