Transformers: The Last Knight - New International Trailer - Paramount Pictures.
In 484 AD, King Arthur (Liam Garrigan) and his knights fight a losing battle against the Saxons. Elsewhere, Merlin approaches the Knights of Iacon, a group of Transformers hiding on Earth, to help win the war. They hand him an alien staff, before transforming together into Dragonstorm and turn the tide of the battle, but warn Merlin that a great evil will come for the staff.
In the present, five years after the Hong Kong Uprising, Optimus finally arrives on Cybertron, and meets his alleged creator Quintessa (Gemma Chan). She, who originally sent Lockdown to bring him to her, blames Optimus for Cybertron's destruction and brainwashes him, renaming him Nemesis Prime. After which, she orders him to travel to Earth to help her get Merlin's staff, which can absorb Earth's energy to restore Cybertron. Earth is revealed to be Unicron, the ancient enemy of Cybertron, and whose horns are emerging across the planet.
On Earth, Transformers remain unwelcome among humanity, apart from in Cuba, and are hunted by the Transformers Reaction Force (TRF); a paramilitary force manufactured from the fallen Cemetery Wind. However, the U.S. military, particularly those who had formerly worked with the Transformers, such as Colonel William Lennox (Josh Duhamel), is secretly against the new policy. Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), an ally to the Autobots, helps hide refugee Transformers from the TRF in his remote junkyard. In the war-torn Chicago, Cade, Bumblebee (Erik Aadahl), young scavenger Izabella (Isabela Merced) and her Transformer companions Sqweeks (Reno Wilson) and Canopy help a group of three young boys evade the TRF drones, but Canopy is killed by a fighter jet when the TRF mistake him as a Decepticon. Cade receives a mechanical talisman from a dying Autobot knight and has a brief standoff with the TRF and their leader, Santos (Santiago Cabrera), before being saved by Bumblebee, Lennox, and Hound (John Goodman). Cade returns to his junkyard with Izabella and Sqweeks with the talisman. Both Megatron (Frank Welker) and the U.S. government become aware of the talisman's value and power, reluctantly joining forces to obtain it. A group of Decepticon prisoners are released to aid in the mission.
