Before the first official trailer dropped for “Transformers: The Last Knight” Monday, fans got their first look at next year’s film in the form of a one-minute production video.

The official “Transformers” Facebook page posted the video, which celebrates the wrapping up of the movie’s production. The fifth entry in Michael Bay’s franchise about alien robots blasts its way into theatres on June 23, 2017.
