Transformers: The Last Knight is the fifth movie in the blockbuster franchise and brings back Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and director Michael Bay to the sci-fi thriller.
This time around, the humans are at war with the Transformers and it’s up to an unlikely alliance to help save the world.
Wahlberg says doing these action-packed flicks can take a toll.
“It takes a little while to recover, you now? I am 46, I was 45 when I made this movie, so I am getting a little bit older. Oh, it’s the annoying thing when kids, they’re so excited. They’re like, ‘We’re gonna get strapped in a harness and gonna be spinning around for 12 hours, it’s amazing!’ I’m like, ‘No, this is horrible. This is not what I want to do,’” Wahlberg said.
His co-star, Laura Haddock, wasn’t used to the intense stunts.
“You’re on a wire, we were on a wire all day of the time for eight-and-a-half months. And I was harnessed for mostly every day, ready to go in case Michael wanted to all of a sudden shoot a big action scene. So, you just had to be ready to go,” Haddock said.
Actress Isabella Moner was just happy to be a part of it all, as a big fan of these films.
“Honestly, I think it’s a combination of things. It’s the aesthetic, the beautiful, golden, shiny people, the explosions. There’s a specific style to the comedy too, I think. But I – but yeah, Mark Wahlberg’s abs,” Moner said.
And when it comes to where the franchise may go, Wahlberg isn’t promising a part six.
“I don’t know. Michael says it is his last one, so I got with Michael. So, if it is his last one, it is my last one. But I really have no idea. And he said before that it was his last, so I don’t know if we can believe him or not, but I think he seems pretty – he seems committed this time to going onto something else.”
