It's not every day that the Transformers franchise gets an injection of Oscar winning prestige. But that's exactly what happens in this new clip from The Last Knight as Silence of the Lambs and Nixon legend Sir Anthony Hopkins shows up.
He plays Transformer expert and all-round British gent Sir Edmund Burton – and this being a Michael Bay movie, the interpretation of the UK of course extends to sweeping country houses, flat caps and pipes.
Nevertheless Edmund has an important part to play, showing history with hero Transformer Bumblebee to the bafflement of Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg). Check out the clip below.
