Paramount Pictures has released a brand new international trailer that gives us a further idea of how far the story will be rewritten in this newest installment of the franchise.

One note I want to make is that Bumbleebee appears to be pulling away from his formerly comic-relief style role and seems to be taking a more serious turn in this installment. Considering all of the build up for the inevitable clash between Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, this makes sense.

The official synopsis is below:

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.
