If you come out of the movie more confused about the story, then don't fret, because Anthony Hopkins, who plays an English lord in the Transformers: The Last Knight, is still a bit confused about it despite being involved in the film.
During a chat with Event Magazine, Hopkins admitted to not quite getting Transformers: The Last Knight.
"You're not going to ask me to explain the plot are you? Because it's so very complicated and there's the whole mythology of four previous films that come into play. I have to admit, I don't quite get all of it," he admitted.
However, he did understand his character and admitted that it was wonderful to work with co-star Mark Wahlberg.
"All I know is I play a highly educated, eccentric English lord. I had a terrific time making it. Mark Wahlberg was wonderful to work with, the locations were excellent (Northumberland, Norway, Arizona, the Isle of Skye and Stonehenge) and I showed up, put my costume on, said my lines and stayed out of trouble. That's all I ever do. It beats working for a living," said Hopkins.
Transformers: The Last Knight will see humans at war with the Transformers, and the key to resolving the issue lies in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Wahlberg's Cade will team up with Bumblebee, an English lord and a professor from Oxford, to save the world.
The movie also stars Josh Duhamel, who reprises his role as Lennox. The joint human/Autobot NEST task force that Lennox was a part of in the earlier films will not be featured in Transformers: The Last Knight.
