Transformers 5 Megatron Image and Hot Rod Article

In this week's Entertainment Weekly there is an article with new image covering the cinematic history of Hot Rod. So as a result its a short article. However it does provide a few new story tidbits (relevant parts below). In addition, a twitter user posted a good look at Megatron in what seems to be a meeting with humans.
Alongside Mark Wahlberg’s salt-of-the-earth mechanic, Anthony Hopkins is joining the cast as Sir Edmund Burton, an astronomer who — with the help of Hot Rod — has tracked these long-forgotten connections to another scholar, Oxford professor of English literature Viviane Wembly (Laura Haddock, who played Star-Lord’s mother in Guardians of the Galaxy).

She has no idea she harbors a genetic secret that could destroy (or save) the world. “[The humans] are empowered in a way that is very different than we’ve experienced before and honestly, it’s not easy figuring out how to empower the six foot human versus the 35- or 45-foot robot,” says producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

Hot Rod has secretly been serving as her protector in the guise of her father’s 1963 Citro├źn DS.
“It’s a rickety old thing, but she can’t part with it because she adores it,” Haddock says of the vintage vehicle. “This car has actually been put there to watch her and feedback information to Anthony Hopkins’s character about what she’s up to and her life. So yeah, she gets kind of taken [by surprise] in a really funny, dramatic way by this Hot Rod.”

So far, the new robot doesn’t have an actor attached. “It’s still in the works,” di Bonaventura says. ...We’re trying to make our cast as international as we can,” di Bonaventura says. “We think it’s fun for the characters, it’s fun for the series, it’s fun for the fans in the different countries. So a lot of the robots are not being voiced or we’re just in the process of casting them now.”

Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer #1

As promised on Friday, here is the new trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight. Oddly enough I think this qualifies as the first official trailer for the movie as I think the ones before where TV spots, extended TV spots, and other stuff that danced around the "official trailer" designation.
