A new trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight showcases Izzy (Isabela Moner), a girl who was orphaned during the destruction of Chicago in the third film, Dark of the Moon. Izzy or Isabella, essayed by Isabela Moner is a strong and courageous feminist character, upon whose small shoulders seem to rest big responsibilities. While we'd love to see alive robots beating the crap out of each other (Because why else do you watch a Transformers movie?), we're greeted by a robot graveyard with parts scattered all across the field. She sleeps in a vehicle in a parking lot. She might be a (15-year-old) kid, but she wants to fight and doesn't give star Mark Wahlberg any choice in the matter.

Optimus Prime finds his home planet, Cybertron, now a dead planet, which he comes to find he was responsible for killing. She even marches towards the Decepticons when they capture Sqweeks, and becomes the latest young girl that Wahlberg's Cade Yeager has to struggle to protect, only this one isn't his own daughter. I gotta say, the girl power message in this trailer rings a little hollow considering Bay's track record with female characters, but if he's upgrading from scantily clad sexpots to a badass young girl, that's definitely a step in the right direction.

"Transformers: The Last Knight" is now building a considerable amount of hype and buzz.

Following last week's clip and TV spot [watch them here], a new trailer has now arrived online for the upcoming fifth instalment of Michael Bay's blockbuster Transformers franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight; check it out here...
