Transformers One gets first action packed trailer

Transformers One first trailer

Paramount Pictures has finally shared the first trailer for Transformers One, the eighth installment in their Transformers film series.

The film is an “origin story” of sorts and focuses on the planet Cybertron and the relationship between Optimus Prime and Megatron. It’s the first mainline film in the series since 2017’s Transformers: The Last Knight, as the most recent films were spinoffs.

It’s worth pointing out this is also the first animated film in the Hollywood-produced Transformers film series, and will star Chris Hemsworth as Orion Pax / Optimus Prime, Brian Tyree Henry as D-16 / Megatron, Scarlett Johansson as Elita-1, Keegan Michael Key as B-127 / Bumblebee, Jon Hamm as Sentinel Prime, and Laurence Fishburne as Alpha Trion. Steve Buscemi was cast in an undisclosed role and Shockwave, Starscream, and Soundwave are also set to appear in the film.

Transformers One is being directed by Josh Cooley (Toy Story 4, etc), written by Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, and is co-produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Tom DeSanto, Don Murphy, Michael Bay, Mark Vahradian, and Aaron Dem.

Though the film is entirely animated, its animation was provided by Industrial Light & Magic, marking their return to the franchise since the 2018 spinoff Bumblebee, which was live-action.

Here’s the first trailer:

Transformers One is set to premiere exclusively in theaters in the United States on September 20th, 2024 via Paramount Pictures.
