Mark Wahlberg hails UK's 'strength and resiliency' at Transformers premiere

In more Transformers news, Bay has also confirmed that this would be his last title in the franchise during an interview with Fandango.

The films receive typically negative notices from the critics but clearly tap into the audience psyche, with each one making eye-watering grosses at the box office (the most recent two both passed $1 billion worldwide).

Paramount Pictures doesn't seem to be anxious about the departure of both Michael Bay and Mark Wahlberg from "Transformers: The Last Knight". After directing the first three Transformers films back-to-back he crafted the dark comedy Pain & Gain, and before The Last Knight he directed the true-story war actioner 13 Hours.

Opening June 23, Transformers: The Last Knight stars franchise veterans Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro, joined by newcomers Isabela Moner, Liam Garrigan, Jerrod Carmichael, Mitch Pileggi, Laura Haddock, Santago Cabrera and Anthony Hopkins.

"In cinema, I'm always trying to push the boundaries", he says, in the 2-minute video, "and it's really to give you the very best experience".

Additionally, he had to sport long hair, which he wasn't a big fan of. Thanks to Wahlberg's status in the business and all the money the franchise makes, it was assumed he was going to continue to be included in the series, even after The Last Knight.
