TV & FILM

Michael Bay's style of filmmaking has been given one of the better portmanteaus in all of human history: Bayhem. Those six letters sum up everything you need to know about the man's unique ability to blow things up in new and interesting ways. This new 97-second trailer for his upcoming film Transformers: The Last Knight is nothing but Bayhem. There's no pesky dialogue to get in the way of all the explosions, and frankly, that's Bayhem in a nutshell.
The fifth film in the franchise is set to hit theaters on June 21, and we know precious little about the film beyond the fact that Anthony Hopkins is the latest in a line of respectable actors to debase themselves by appearing. Strangely he also appears in one of the only shots in this trailer without an explosion. I'll leave it to you to decide whether or not there's some deeper meaning in that fact.
You've got to hand it to Michael Bay. The guy's made a career out of chaos and his name is now synonymous with explosions. That's more than most of us will be able to say at the end of the day. Just remember the number one law of Bayhem... Don't you dare turn back and look at that explosion!
