C’mon, everybody sing: “Transformers… money in disguise.” Truthfully, this is another one of those franchises that nobody could have imagined gong the distance or pulling in the billions that it has, deflecting criticism the way that Superman does bullets. Picking up where the last film, Age Of Extinction, left off, it deals with the ultimate battle for survival between humans and Transformers. The key, believes inventor Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg—hey, someone should put Ted in one of these films), is to discern why the Transformers continue to come to Earth. To do so, he teams with Bumblebee, an Oxford professor and an English lord. There are plans for a Bumblee spin-off for 2018, a sixth Transformers film in 2019 and rumblings of a crossover between Transformers and G.I. Joe.
