Humans, Autobots and Maximals band together against planet-eating Unicron in the new Transformers: Rise of the Beasts trailer in order to save earth, dropped by Paramount Pictures on Thursday late night.
The two-minute-32-second-long trailer introduces Maximals, who have been hiding on the earth for centuries. Optimus Primal, who is a Maximal shaped up as a gorilla, tells Optimus Prime, “For centuries our kind has stayed hidden on Earth. But darkness has found us again. Prime, this is about the fate of all living things. Unicron is coming.” The clip also shows how humans, Autobots and Maximals come together to fight for earth against an alien invasion.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, a standalone sequel to 2018’s Bumblebee, is the seventh instalment in the film franchise based on Hasbro’s Transformers toy line. Directed by Creed II helmer Steven Caple Jr, it stars Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback with Michelle Yeoh and Pete Davidson among the voice cast. Peter Cullen reprises his voice role as Optimus Prime alongside Tobe Nwigwe, Ron Perlman, Peter Dinklage, Liza Koshy, John DiMaggio, David Sobolov, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez and Cristo Fernández.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will hit the theatres on June 9.
