This year's dose of universal destruction has arrived.

The trailer for the latest Transformers film, 'Transformers: The Last Knight' is here.

The film will be the series' fifth installment and it's got everything you'd expect.

In typical Transformers style, the film's key themes include universal destruction and the struggle between good and evil, with a little romance in between. Or as the trailer puts it, "The imminent destruction of everything we know and love."

The film also seems to deal with questions surrounding why the transformers keep returning to earth. It's true. After four films, they just keep coming back.

For the answer however, we will have to wait until the movie is released.

Michael Bay returns to direct this new installment after making huge successes of the first four films of the series. Through those four, however, Bay has been accused of excessive 'Bayhem', a concept that describes action where things are blown up, often in slow motion.

Regardless, success is success -- no matter how you get there. In the same thread, new cast member Sir Anthony Hopkins described the director as a film-making master.

"I thought, 'this guy's a genius, he really is,'" Hopkins told Yahoo! Movies. "He's the same as Oliver Stone and [Steven] Spielberg and [Martin] Scorsese. Brilliance. Savants, really, they are. He's a savant."

The 79-year-old Hopkins, stars in 'The Last Knight' as Sir Edmund Burton, an astronomer who lives on an estate in the countryside with Autobots.

'Transformers: The Last Knight' will premiere in Australia on the 22nd of June 2017.
