New ‘Transformers’ will be Bay’s last

If two words could capture the coming week, those words would be: Michael Bay.

Bay's latest addition to his "Transformers" series, "The Last Knight," is the fifth in the series (with two still on the design board). And it is the single major release on Friday's national schedule. Here is the skinny:

"Transformers: The Last Knight": In what is said to be Bay's final turn as director, and Mark Wahlberg's final turn as lead actor, humans struggle to save themselves by seeking out "secrets of the past and the hidden history of Transformers on Earth." Oh, and Anthony Hopkins co-stars … which may be why this looks like Bay's attempt to make a "Citizen Kane" lite.

I'll update as the local theaters finalize their bookings.
