Bay: “Churchill would be smiling”

Michael Bay confirms that Winston Churchill is a character in Transformers: The Last Knight, as he responds to criticism over the movie…

Production continues on Michael Bay’s new movie, Transformers: The Last Knight, and right now, filming is taking place in the UK. Last week, the production hit some controversy too, as pictures emerged of the late Winston Churchill’s house being covered in Nazi flags as part of a sequence in the movie. So what was going on?

Michael Bay, chatting to the BBC, has responded to the criticism, and insisted that “when you see the movie, you’ll understand”.

“I just want to say, people were not fortunate enough to read the script, and they don’t know that Churchill in this movie is a big hero. And Churchill would be smiling about Last Knight”.

Winston Churchill is in Transformers: The Last Knight, folks.

Bay also added that “I for one, probably more than any director in the world, have shot more veterans and more active military men and women in my movies. I would do nothing to disrespect veterans”.

Transformers: The Last Knight arrives in cinemas on June 23rd 2017. Filming continues.
