After directing four very male-centric Transformer movies it seems as though Michael Bay will leave the Transformers movie franchise with an installment aimed at young female audience members with the new, second trailer for the fifth Transformers movie featuring new main cast member Isabela Moner proclaiming throughout that she "fights like a girl". While this could be just an attempt by studio Paramount Pictures to widen the demographic audience of the franchise, the new trailer gives the overwhelming impression that the new movie may be following in the path of last year's controversial Ghostbusters: Answer The Call, by using faux feminism and female empowerment to boost box office returns.

The aforementioned reboots release showed that audiences, both general and fan based saw through the movies marketing visage. Should the marketing for Transformers: The Last Knight continue in this vein the same outcome could negatively affect the movies box office takings, possibly making The Last knight the least profitable movie of the franchise. Hopefully, the studio will veer away from emulating Sony's attempt to use a favored intellectual property from the '80's as a social commentary platform and instead, give audiences and fans what they want; said franchise realized on the big screen with due care and attention, much as Fox did recently with Deadpool.

More about Transformers: The Last Knight (movie)

The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.

Directed by Michael Bay, Transformers: The Last Knight's release date is June 23rd, 2017.

Hmm...I am a 5'0", 102lb woman who has been trained in self defense. Given the choice, I'd rather fight like a 210lb man without much training than a 102lb woman with considerable training. Mother Nature, via genetics, has a wonderful way of making men superb and extremely dangerous fighters regardless of their overall combat inclination! With regards to the trailer: this was silly. Who in their right bloody mind would shout "I am not afraid of you!" to Megatron and his small army of Decepticons? Just once, I would like to see the dire consequences that would very likely arise from showing foolish bravado in the face of a film's lead antagonist - namely a very quick and dreadful end. That would certainly be a more realistic outcome! :)
