"Transformers: The Last Knight" is a follow up to the 2014 smash, "Transformers: Age of Extinction," which was a big hit in China. The film reigned over the Chinese film market that year, racking up $288 million worth of earnings in the country alone.

For the upcoming installment, Mark Wahlberg will return as Cade Yeager. He will be teaming up with Dinobots as he sets on a quest to unravel the mystery and secrets of why Transformers keep coming back to Earth. Meanwhile, Optimus Prime fights against Unicorn and searches for Quintessons.

"'The Last Knight' shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. The key to saving [the] future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth," a synopsis posted on the film's official website stated.

Stanley Tucci will also reprise her role from "Age of Extinction." In the fourth film, her character, Joshua Joyce, made a series of human-made Transformers.

Actors from the first three franchises--namely, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro whose respective characters William Lennox, Robert Epps and Seymour Simmon all allied with the Autobots--will also come back to the well-followed live-action film series.

Michael Bay, who helmed the five movies, previously shared that "Transformers: The Last Knight" marks his final film in the franchise.

"Transformers" is based on the toy line created by Hasbro and Tomy back in the 1980s.
